Dennison Exterior Solutions as roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan was hired to remove and replace the original roof on this home. There were two leaks in the history of the home with one in the bathroom and the second one where the second story corner of the home meets the lower roof. The seamless gutter on the front second story roof also was not pitched proper which caused the water to pool and overflow as well as the end cap leaked. After the completion of the installation of the roof we tuned up the existing gutters, resealed the end cap and installed the Solution gutter covers.

Underlayments: Dennison Exterior Solutions Winter Guard Ice & Water Shield
Dennison Exterior Solutions & CertainTeed’s WinterGuard waterproofing shingle underlayment 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. Placing WinterGuard a minimum of 24″ past the interior wall line at the eave provides your first line of defense.
Dennison Exterior Solutions installs Winter Guard six feet up the roofline from all eave edges, where all lower roofs meet any walls and around all roof ‘ shingle 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 call-backs.
Dennison’s Winter Guard 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.
Dennison Exterior Solutions & CertainTeed’s Diamond Deck Synthetic Felt
Dennison Exterior Solutions & CertainTeed’s Diamond Deck high performance synthetic felt is applied to the entire roof surface that is not already covered the the Winter Guard ice and water shield. This Best-in-Class underlayments performance in terms of both weather protection and contractor safety is unsurpassed.
Diamond Deck has exceptional dimensional stability compared to standard 15lb or 30lb felt underlayment which can wrinkle when it becomes wet and “telegraph” those wrinkles through to the shingles applied over it detracting from the beauty of your homes new shingles. Diamond Deck eliminates this problem and it special top surface treatment provide excellent slip resistance, even when wet for contractor safety.
