We install Ice and Water shield on all eves, rakes, and edges to help prevent wind driven rain from leaking through the roofs decking. It also prevents from ice and snow melting (caused by ice dams in harsh winter climates) from leaking into a the home.
We remove all existing roofing material down to the deck (deck material consists of OSB board, plywood, or plank) to ensure the integrity of the deck remains intact to support a nail-able surface. We then apply one layer of synthetic underlay. The underlayment is installed to exceed a 130 MPH wind rating.
Drip edge is installed on all edges, starting at the eve edge, working up the rake edges. Drip edge comes in 10ft sections which overlay 2 to 3 inches to cover edges. For eves, drip edge goes on under the ice and water shield and underlayment. On rakes it will be installed on top of the underlayment.
Starter shingles are installed hanging over the drip edge a half inch. It's installed like a shingle and you will notice the tar strip is at the lower edge and this will help prevent blow off. The first full size course of shingles is installed directly on top of the starter shingle with the tabs facing down towards the eaves. Laying your choice of shingles comes next. This shingle is the shingle you see when looking at your roof.
Ice and Water shield is used on all valleys. We can use a standard valley metal which is a metal strip running the length of the valley, or a closed or weave valley as shown here.
Once the body of the roof has been shingled, we will then apply the hip shingles, if you have a hip roof, which will be overlapped by the ridge shingles. Gable roofs will only have ridge shingles. We lay one hip cap at one end of the ridge and another at the other end.
Plumbing vent boots will need to be replaced with new rubber ones. We attempt to replace all step flashing, however if nailed or placed under or over siding we may not be able to replace it. For chimney flashing, we always install new aluminum flashing.
