When you request a roof estimate from us our office depending up the request may setup two appointments so that we can best determine what will be required in order to ensure that we can address your concerns and obtain customer satisfaction, validate the new shingles warranty and to provide you with the peace of mind that you will have been provided with all the options available to mitigate future problems.
1. We will measure and inspect your attic to determine the current R-Value of your insulation and make recommendations on how we can bring your attic insulation up to the R-49 to R-60 insulation value that the Department of Energy claims is needed in the Michiana area.
2. We will access and make recommendations on how to update your roofs ventilation system in order to ensure we maximize the ability of the new ventilation system will exhaust the heat build up in the warm/hot months and any warm moist air that does penetrate the updated insulation system into the open air area of the attic. This will also validate the new shingles warranty, almost double the warranty on your new shingles and reduce the size and scope of any future ice dams.
3. We will install ice and water shield a minimum of six feet from the eave edge up the roof line or whatever is required to make sure the ice and water shield extends twenty four inches beyond the interior wall line. In addition, we will install ice and water shield around every protrusion through the roof such as soil pipes, electrical risers, vents, satellites, skylights, chimneys and where any lower roofs meet second story walls. Also, if needed depending upon where your chimney is located on your roof build a cricket/saddle behind the chimney and apply the ice and water shield around it to ensure no water, snow or ice sits there.
4. Upon completion of the all the roof, ventilation and insulation work we can also clean out and tune up your existing seamless gutters or if needed replace the existing system and install our Gutter Topper system which is the only gutter protections system that has a built in Ice Release system to allow the ice and snow to move off the roof and onto the ground or as an option we can also install the Heated Ice Release system which will keep large icicles from forming along the eave edges.
