As roofing contractors in southwest Michigan last weeks projects included a customers second home located in Sawyer Michigan and required a complete tear-off of 3 layers of shingles and as an insulation contractor in Sawyer Michigan we cut an access into the attic to adjust the existing insulation, add our Heat Deflector Insulation which
deflects 97% of the radiant heat to keep the inside of the home cool during the summer months and warm during that harsh Michigan Winters.
In addition, we updated the attics ventilation system to exhaust the heat and moisture by installing CertainTeed’s ventilation system which includes a hip and ridge vent with an external baffle to create the Bernoulli effect a principle of physics that deflects the air movement up and over the ridge vent creating an area of negative pressure that pumps the hot/moist air out of the attic. This home also did not have any intake vents under the eave so we added an edge vent on the roof so that the ridge vent could pull dryer cooler air into the attic. Most other roofing contractors in southwest Michigan fail to install proper ventilation as required by all roofing manufacturers in order to validate the new shingles warranty. They simply install an non-baffled rolled ridge vent and call it a day hoping that the homeowner will not know the difference with the end result that the homeowner ends up with NO warranty.
We added CertainTeed’s Winter Guard ice and water shield to the first six feet of all eave edges including the valley and as usual went one step further in applied around all protrusions through the roof. On the balance of the roof we installed CertainTeed’s Diamond Deck synthetic felt which does not wrinkle or absorb moisture.
We completed the roofing part of the project by installing CertainTeed’s Lifetime Warranty Independence shingle in Cottage Red to give the home a unique look compared to the other roofs in the neighborhood and to match the red shutters on the home.
As a Seamless Gutter Contractor in Southwest Michigan we installed new white Seamless Gutters and Downspouts.
As experts in gutter protection industry and a Gutter Topper contractor in Sawyer Michigan we topped the seamless gutter off with the number one rated Gutter Topper gutter guard system in order to ensure the inside of the gutters not only remain free-flowing but will give the homeowner peace-of-mind in knowing that will not have to clean their gutters as they periodically visit their home-away-from-home.
