Watervliet Michigan Gutter Topper Project
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing contractors in Granger Indiana replaced the roof on this charming neighborhood block home. The homeowners decided it was time for an update since a leak had appeared in the upstairs bedroom on the 2nd story of the roof. The homeowners also knew the roof was older and most likely needed a renovation soon. After our initial free estimate it was decided they would hire us to do the job. Our crew found that there was an insufficient number of exhaust vents and the technology used on the ridge of the roof was inefficient in providing proper ventilation. The existing static vent on near the ridge was removed the crew then installed what is called a filtered ridge vent. Other kinds of vents do not measure up to filtered ridge vents. These vents not only are more efficient but they also are more appealing to the eye compared to power, turbine or static roof vents since they don’t give the appearance of an added on fixture. Filtered ridge vents outperform the other vents in other areas as well. They provide uniform cooling along the entire roofline. They also have an external baffle that creates the Bernoulli effect. The Bernoulli effect is what makes airplanes fly. If the air is flowing past the top surface of an aircraft wing is moving faster than the air flowing past the bottom surface then the pressure on the surface of the wing will be lower above than below. This pressure difference results in an upwards lifting force. For the filtered ridge vent, the Bernoulli effect happens when the external baffle causes wind to jump over the vent, creating an area of negative pressure which draws air up from the attic. This effectively removes heat and humidity from within the attic. Inside the vent is an internal weather filter. The filter keeps blowing rain or snow, dust and insects out of the attic and is continuously cleaned by air moving out of the attic through the filter. Filtered ridge vents are the best choice when it comes to providing proper ventilation and curbside appeal for your roof.

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield
Dennison Roofing as Professional Roofing Contractors in Granger Indiana 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 Granger Indiana 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.
