Underlayments:

Dennison Exterior Solutions Winter Guard Ice & water shield

6 feet of Ice & Water Protection including around all Roof Protrusions
6 feet of Ice & Water Protection including around all Roof Protrusions

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 callbacks.

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 underlayment’s 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.

Chimney Applications

Before
Before

 This customer chimney had a very common problem in that water, snow and melting ice formed, pooled and drained and sat for long periods of time behind the chimney, which over-time allows water to deteriorate the exposed roofing cement on the walls of the chimney and to eventually leak inside the attic and home.

At Dennison Exterior Solutions as roofing contractors in Western Michigan and Northern Indiana as part of our Integrity Roofing Systems which is standard on all LandMark Pro, Independence and Presidential shingle applications we build a saddle/cricket behind the chimney, apply CertainTeed’s Winter Guard ice and water shield in at least a three foot diameter around the entire chimney to prevent all water infiltration from the roof chimney area. Our chimney application also consists of installing the appropriate step and counter flashing to shield all sealants from the harsh elements that Mother Nature can throw at it. This process ensures that our roof will not leak and ends all call-backs and provides out customers with the peace-of-mind of knowing that rain water will not destroy the interior of their home.

This fee also includes taking over responsibility for your existing gutter system as well if the system is relatively new so that you won’t have to call the original gutter company. We also specialize in installing new seamless aluminum gutters and downspouts as well if you need new gutters.
