Need a roof replacement?

Most people don’t really think about the roof over their heads…until it springs a leak and you find yourself needing a roof replacement!

When we think about home repairs, installing a new roof is arguably the most important home remodeling project. Why? Because a roof protects your home and all of its other interior and exterior investments.  Although a new roof isn’t all that glamorous, you’ll understand its importance in a big way should an old roof fail, allowing water to destroy the inside of your home, from the attic insulation, down through your beautiful remodeled kitchen, right on through to the basement family room with big-screen TV. Fewer home problems can be more disastrous than a failed roof. That’s why we advocate that homeowners take the time to do the research, understand the process, and understand roofing systems. Notice how we said systems? Let’s talk more about this below.

What does a roof replacement consist of?

The Roof Decking

We start by ensuring that roof decking is solid and that any wood or plywood is inspected and validated. We replace any plywood that needs to be replaced due to rot.

Ventilation

Ventilation is the most essential component to the life and longevity of your roof. When a roof is not properly ventilated, it can result in rot and mold and premature shingle aging.

Step 2: Ventilation is Added

Attic ventilation works on the principle that heated air naturally rises, primarily utilizing two types of vents:

Taking advantage of this natural process, referred to as passive ventilation, is the most common way to vent an attic. In order to facilitate this exchange of warm and cool air, the general rule of thumb suggests installing at least 1 sq. ft. of vent for every 300 sq. ft. of attic floor. Building codes vary, though, so do check with your local building authority for the specifics that pertain to your community.
