Products Installed: CertainTeed Lifetime Warranty LandMark Pro Burnt Sienna Shingles with a 50 year 100% Labor & Material Warranty, WinterGuard Ice & Water Shield and CertainTeed’s Flintastic Self-Adhered Commercial Grade Granulated Roll Roofing
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan met with this customer who took us on a tour of their home so that we could view several areas where the homes roof had been leaking for several years mainly from ice dams. Sadly, the existing roof was only about 11 years old and the previous roofing company did not take proper action during their installation to ensure that there would not be any water infiltration given the unique design of the roof.
While we were removing the older roof the prior roofer failed to install the ice shield all the way to the eave edge – stopped about 3 inches short – which resulted in all of that wood needing to be replaced. We removed the white cedar trim board that sat on the roof and installed the WinterGuard up the wall with new metal flashing, then reshingled and reinstalled the trim boards. In addition, we installed the self-adhered Flintastic system by CertainTeed at the eave edges give that while most of the roof is very steep at the eave edges it is below a 2/12 pitch. The base sheet of the Flintastic system is at least four times as thick as the WinterGuard and like the WinterGuard it also seals itself to the roof deck and then a granulated cap sheet is applied on top. The beauty behind this product that it is nail-less.

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper uses CertainTeed’s WinterGuard waterproofing shingle underlayment, which is the solution for winning the battle against water penetration in your roof’s most vulnerable places. WinterGuard is a composite material of asphalt polymers, formed into a rolled sheet. The asphalt makes it vapor-tight, and the polymers make the asphalt elastic and sticky. This protective barrier is able to stretch and seal around nails driven through it. Placing WinterGuard a minimum of 24″ past the interior wall line at the eave provides your first line of defense.
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper installs Winter Guard six feet up the roofline from all eave edges, where all lower roofs meet any walls and around all roof ‘ shingle penetrations such as furnace / water heater vent stacks, soil pipes, chimneys, antenna satellite fasteners, skylights and any other protrusions through the roof. This process eliminates all potential future callbacks.
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard seals the roof against infiltration of water into the home due to ice dams and wind-driven rain that also seals water-tight around each nail that is driven through it. The sand surface of Winter Guard also provides a huge safety factor for installers while walking on top of the shield.
