Watervliet Michigan Gutter Topper Project
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing and gutter contractors in Dowagiac Michigan were hired to both resolve the ventilation issues that had caused damage to the interior and exterior of this house and correctly install new material. The roof was 25 years old, had yielded a roof leak that was visible in the southeast corner bedroom and ice dams had caused irreparable damage to the existing gutters. The initial roof was installed incorrectly and did not provide adequate ventilation. Obvious signs of this were that there wasn’t an exhaust vent where there should have been one and all of the intake vents were blocked. Blocking the intake vents makes them useless. Before installing new material our crew adjusted the insulation and unblocked the intake vents, installed exhaust vents where they were needed and installed a filtered ridge vent. Fixing these key ventilation issues and installing products correctly is the difference between a roof that is functioning and breathing properly and one that’s slowly causing damage to your home and slashing down the life expectancy of your roof and gutters. In addition to installing both CertainTeed NorthGate Shingles and Seamless Gutters, the homeowners opted to have Solution Gutter Guard protection placed on the gutters.

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield
Dennison Roofing as Professional Roofing Contractors in Dowagiac 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. At Scott Dennison Roofing our customers demand excellence and the peace-of-mind in having WinterGuard installed over the entire roof deck even though this process adds additional costs to the project but it then eliminates leaks anywhere on the roof.
Dennison Roofing as Roof Repair Contractors in Dowagiac Michigan even installs ice and water shield under each area when hired to repair roofs. Think about the benefit of having ice and water shield adhering itself to the entire roof deck, where walls meet lower roof-lines including 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 WinterGuard 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 during the roof installation process.
