Products Installed: CertainTeed NorthGate Pewter Lifetime Warranty Shingles with White Solution Gutter Guards 

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan fixed the ventilation issues on this home with a detached garage. Years of poor airflow from an insufficient number of intake vents (which were also blocked) and exhaust vents caused this roof to suffer several leaks. The leaks were located around the base of the chimney and also along the northwest valley of the roof over the bedrooms. The finished project ensures this roof achieved proper ventilation by: installing heat deflector insulation and the correct number of intake and exhaust vents, providing an edge vent, removing the static vents for a filtered ridge vent and finally adjusting the insulation. This customer also decided to have gutter protection installed on the garage so they would no longer need to clean the gutters.

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as Professional Roofing Contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan 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 Roof Repair Contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan 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.

The sand surface of Winter Guard also provides a huge safety factor for installers while walking on top of the shield.
