Every job is unique and we have the skills and resources to roof any of them. Currently, the number one covering of steep-sloped roofs all over the United States and Canada is asphalt shingles.
Asphalt shingles have proven to be the most cost-effective solution to the roofing needs of North American homeowners. The older version of shingles were made with a base of wood fiber and asphalt but have now evolved into fiberglass reinforced shingles available in countless colors and textures, giving the homeowner many choices, as well as various lengths of warranty for the right custom mix of durability, appearance and affordability.
In addition to the actual tiles or shingles used on your roof, we cover every detail needed to build a high quality roof. Flashings are used wherever something intersects the roof: the most important areas of your roof. Various materials such as sheet metal made out of copper, galvanized steel, or aluminum can be used to protect these areas. Other sealant materials such as lead, Ice and Water shield, and membranes can be incorporated with siding, chimneys, walls, gutter lines, skylights, pipes, and vents.
Ice and Water shield is a protective underlayment that is put on over the wood deck prior to any shingles. It is used as an extra layer of protection in areas that are most prone to leaking and ice backup problems. We typically install Ice and Water shield along the eaves, around chimneys, skylights and in all valleys.
If your existing flashing is still in good shape, replacement is not necessary although its critical role should never be compromised.
