In the Northeast, masons are partial to lead flashing, which is soft and easy to bend to shape. But no matter which material is used, it must be layered correctly if water is to be kept out. A chimney’s water defense system is made up of 3 layers:

What We Do
PEACE OF MIND IN YOUR HOME
Before we start laying shingles
1. We Estimate your cost
Golden Group Roofing will come to your home and take all the measurements we need to properly quote your roof repair or roof replacement project.
3. Installation day arrives
We’ll remind you in the days before your installation of the project start date and time. We also provide our clients with a list of items to do before construction begins, so that you’re ready to go when installation day arrives.
4. Site Safety Inspection
We want to make sure that the workers and the homeowners are safe throughout the process and that everyone knows how to enter and exit the home safely while we roof.
Asphalt shingle installation for new roof projects
1. Removal of the old roof
Before we begin installing the new roof, we make sure that the old roof is removed. This lets us ensure that the wood decking underneath is in good condition. If it needs any repairs or attention, we handle that at this stage.
2. Installation begins
We begin by installing the ice and water shield barrier. This helps prevent leaks caused by wind-driven rain and ice dams and is installed everywhere that we think the home may be vulnerable to leaks.
3. Synthetic Breathable Felt
After ice and water shield is installed, the remainder of your roof gets covered in synthetic breathable felt, providing an extra layer between the roofing shingles and the roofing deck.
4. Roof edges secured
This is an important step in the roofing system installation. This step secures your roof’s edges from rain and wind damages. We install F8 Aluminum Drip Edge on all the edges of your roof, as well as GAF Pro Starter Strip Shingles to help guard against shingle blow-offs.
5. Asphalt shingles are installed
Picking the right shingles and asphalt roofing material is one thing, but the longevity of your new roof depends largely on the quality of the installation. Explore shingle colors on our site.
6. Roof Ventilation is Added
After the asphalt shingles have been installed, we will then install the roof ridge vents to help exhaust heat and moisture from your attic and properly ventilate the new roofing system and your home. We install 12 inch filtered GAF Cobra Snow Country Advanced Ridge Vent using 3 inch hand roofing nails. We finish it off with GAF TimberTex Ridge Caps, which offer excellent protection at high-stress areas of your roof.
7. Skylights, chimneys and pipe boots are all sealed
We don’t forget about your roof accessories like skylights, chimneys, and pipe boots. We repair and replace skylights, re-lead and re-seal chimney bricks, and we replace the aluminum flashing on all your roof exterior pipes.
8. Permit closed and roof warranty registered
Golden Group closes out every project by ensuring that all permits are approved with your municipality and that your new roof warranty is registered with the manufacturer. These final steps ensure your peace of mind on your new roofing system.
