Let Us Do The Work For You

Roofing is our main business and we do more of this than anything else.  We use only the most experienced installers and superior materials like GAF©, and IKO© shingles.

Every job includes a lifetime warranty on the shingles and three years on labor.  We handle everything for you from estimate to insurance work, prep, job and cleanup.

Our “Equipter” cleanup machine insures that we leave your house looking more beautiful than before we arrived.

The Anatomy of a Roof

  • Framing includes the roof trusses that sit at the top of your house and support the weight of all the materials used to build your roof. Some materials like ceramic tile and slate are much heavier than asphalt shingles, so the structure must be designed for the materials used.
  • Insulation in your attic is used to reduce the loss of heated air rising up from your home. Attic insulation will be found on the attic floor or when the attic is finished, between the rafters over the attic ceiling.
  • Ventilation is critical in attics to rid the space of heat and moisture that enters from the house below. Without adequate ventilation, heat and moisture can cause damage to the framing, insulation and the plywood sheathing that sits on top of the rafters. You may also find yourself dealing with mold and mildew problems.
  • Roof deck is the roofing material that sits on top of the roof trusses. Most roof decking is made from sheets of plywood.
  • Ice & Water shield is the next roofing layer, that creates a water-proof barrier where ice or water can buildup near the roof eaves. It’s usually a peel and stick product that adheres directly to the roof deck.
  • Underlayment is usually felt or fiberglass paper, that covers the entire roof deck. It is water-resistant to allow moisture to pass through. It will prevent the passage of water in its liquid form.
  • Shingle starter strips are either purchased or created by snapping regular shingles in half. They’re installed at the eaves, pointing in the opposite direction  to create a first line of defense against wind uplift along the edge of the roof.
  • Ridge vents are at the top of your roof, covered by roofing material but with a gap designed to allow warm, moist air to escape from the attic.
  • Flashing is made from sheet metal and used to prevent water from penetrating seams where different materials meet on the roof (and other parts of your home’s exterior). Flashing along the roof eaves are called drip edge, and along chimneys it’s called step flashing. Flashing is also used around skylights, bathroom vents and any other features sticking up through and penetrating the roof.
