As roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan This nice ranch style home about a block away from the banks of Lake Michigan and just north of Saint Joseph High School required us to upgrade the ventilation system of the attic in order to validate the new shingles warranty and to cover the exposed wood areas of the fascia and soffit to make those area maintenance free.
After interviewing the homeowner to obtain their goals we then returned to review our customized proposal, determine the colors and style of the products and schedule the installation.
After our pre-construction meeting our crew prepped the home for the removal of the old roofing material by moving any personal items of the customer away from the walls and patios. The crew then placed a tarp on the ground to protect the landscaping while also leaning 4’ x 8’ sheets of OSB against the walls to protect the homes windows, doors and walls. This process greatly enhances the cleanup process as well as increases customer satisfaction as their home is left cleaner after we have completed the installation process.
After we removed the shingles we cleaned the roof deck by removing nails and sweeping it to prep the deck for the installation of the underlayment’s. As roofing contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan our customers choose to have us install CertainTeed’s Winter Guard ice and water shield on the first six feet of the eave edge decking, where lower roofs meet and walls and around all roof penetrations such as soil pipes, skylights, satellites and chimneys. On the balance of the roof deck we install CertainTeed’s Diamond Deck synthetic felt. This product will not wrinkle like paper felts that our competitors use.
