Dennison Exterior Solutions & Gutter Toppers as roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan was contracted to replace this 12-year-old roof due to the fact that improper ventilation had caused significant premature deterioration to the shingles. It’s sad that most roofing contractors do not know the process of measuring the Net Free Area required for installing proper ventilation in order to not only validate the new shingles warranty but also to ensure that the shingles actually last their entire warranty period let alone most contractors do not even know which types of roof vents work and those that don’t.
After our inspection of the roof and gutter system it was determined that in addition to a new roof being installed we would also install new seamless gutters and downspouts as well as installing Gutter Topper in order to make sure they were maintenance free.

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 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.
