La Porte Indiana Roofing & Gutter Topper Project
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing contractors in Berrien Springs Michigan replaced the roof and installed gutter protection to alleviate this customers concerns for their personal safety and the durability of the roofs current structure. It was apparent that the chimney and northwest valley of the roof had multiple leaks which was the result of the previous roof being improperly installed. There were no intake vents as well as an insufficient number of exhaust vents. We installed CertainTeed’s NorthGate Lifetime Warranty SBS Modified Rubber Shingles with the correct amount of ventilation needed to successfully circulate air flow throughout the roof. The vents installed to procure this? The adequate amount of intake vents, edge vents, exhaust vents, as well as having the static vents removed for the installation of a filtered ridge vent. Also to help the cause we adjusted the insulation for proper ventilation and installed Heat Deflector Insulation. In terms of the customers concern for safety, gutter protection was installed. The customer will no longer have to climb ladders to rid their gutters of debris.
