Benton Harbor Michigan Gutter and Solution Gutter Guard Project
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as roofing & gutter contractors in Stevensville Michigan replaced the roof, installed gutter protection, a heated ice release system and heat deflector insulation on this home. There were multiple leaks in the roof causing issues and an ice dam located on the right side of the front door. During the install not only was it evident that the past roofers failed to provide a sufficient number of intake and exhaust vents it was also uncovered that they blocked the vents with the insulation. Our crew fixed the issues present by installing an adequate number of vents and adjusting the insulation for proper ventilation air flow. To ensure the ice dam issue near the front door was resolved, a heated ice release system was placed on the roof. Heat Deflector Insulation was also installed in the attic underneath the decking to regulate the temperature all year round. Another contributing factor to the ice dams was the build up of foliage in the gutters. The homeowners wanted to avoid climbing ladders to clear out gutters so having Solution Gutter Guard installed on top of the existing gutters will prevent debris build up and in turn eliminate the need to dangerously climb up to clean the gutters.

Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield
Dennison Roofing as Professional Roofing Contractors in Stevensville 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 Stevensville 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.
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper CertainTeed’s
Ventilation Products: 12” Filtered Vent with an External Baffle and Intake Vent
Designed with an internal weather filter and external baffles, CertainTeed® filtered Ridge Vent proves that outstanding beauty and performance can be combined.

CertainTeed Ridge Vents combined with sufficient intake vents, such as CertainTeed Intake Vent, are the most efficient and effective systems you can install that will help validate the new shingles warranty and save you energy which saves you money 24/7 while working year-round to ventilate the attic and keep it as cool and dry as possible.

Heat Deflector Insulation
Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as insulation contractors in Stevensville Michigan as the exclusive insulation contractor certified to install the Heat Deflector Insulation Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper with the installation of this product as proven by the Department of Energy can cut your utility bills between 20 to 40 percent.
Is a highly reflective perforated insulated blanket that is installed on top of your existing insulation that can also be attached to the bottom of the rafters under your roof’s decking. We also install the Heat Deflector behind vinyl siding when we are residing homes.
The Heat Deflector Perforated Insulation allows moisture to pass through the product and still deflects 97% of the radiant heat up during the summer away for the inside of your home allowing your air conditioner to use less energy cooling the air. In the winter the heated air inside your home is deflected back down allowing your furnace to run less and also keeping the air in your attic that is above the Heat Deflector and below your roof’s deck to be cooler. This process also mitigates snowmelt and minimizes the buildup of ice and icicles.
The Heat Deflector provides an R-16 insulation value however; when you include the reflective nature of both sides of the product its performance characteristics can reach the equivalent of an R-30.
Solution Gutter Guard
While the Solution Guard gutter cover was specifically engineered to be installed over your existing gutters Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Topper as seamless gutter contractors in Stevensville Michigan recommends that we replace your gutters if your current gutter system was originally installed with the outdated spike and ferrule fastener system as those systems are almost impossible to be adjusted for proper drainage however, with the Solution gutter guard it is not mandatory but again recommended.
The Heated Gutter Topper System
The Gutter Topper gutter cover system already includes a unique Ice Release™ system. The Ice Release™ system uses the natural expansion and contraction of the aluminum panel as the temperature outside fluctuates. This process helps move the ice off the edge of your roof and onto the ground.
The Heated Ice Release™ system uses a tough low voltage cable which helps eliminate icicles at the eave edges of your home. This cable can be installed inside your existing gutter system with the Gutter Topper gutter covers installed on top.
We simply choose a downspout location that is nearest an electrical outlet and notch a hole on the side of the downspout and insert the special cable. This cable is then fed down to the end of your downspout where the water flows out and then is run back up the downspout to where the downspout connects to your gutters. The cable is then is routed and is installed on the inside bottom of your gutter to the end of your gutter system. We then attach the cable to the underside of the Gutter Topper gutter covers.
In the late fall customers normally turn on their system and leave it on for the entire winter. Our low voltage system does not use much energy at all.
Testing and customer experiences have told us that it is best to leave the system on at all time rather than to fail to remember to turn the system on at least 6 hours before snowfall. If you fail to do so it may take several days for the system to catch up and melt any ice that has formed. In addition, under heavy snow conditions we have found that it may also take several days to melt off any icicles however, experience has shown that on average during the worst conditions icicles will be kept to a minimum and no larger that your fingers.
