Shingle Roof: Tear-off and Rebuild

Shingle roofs, typically made of asphalt, are a popular roofing choice due to their durability, cost-effectiveness, and aesthetic appeal. The tear-off process involves the removal of all existing shingles, underlayment, and sometimes the decking, down to the roof's base structure. Rebuilding the roof then entails installing a new underlayment, followed by new shingles, ensuring each layer is properly sealed and nailed down to protect against weather elements and prolong the roof's lifespan.

Flat Roof: Duro-Last

Flat roofs are commonly seen in commercial buildings, providing a simple and cost-effective roofing solution, and Duro-Last is a reputable brand offering durable PVC roofing systems. The tear-off process involves removing the existing roofing material down to the roof deck, carefully inspecting and repairing any damages to the underlying structure. The Duro-Last rebuild process includes installing an insulation layer if required, then rolling out the custom-fitted Duro-Last membrane, securing it to the deck, and heat-welding seams to create a waterproof, durable roofing system.

Pella Windows, Hardie Siding, Cedar Shingles

Pella windows are well-regarded in the industry for their high quality, energy efficiency, and a wide range of styles and materials, including wood, fiberglass, and vinyl. Hardie siding, made by James Hardie, is a durable, weather-resistant fiber-cement product known for its low maintenance, fire resistance, and versatile aesthetic options. Cedar shingles, often used for siding or roofing, are prized for their natural beauty, durability, and resistance to severe weather, although they require regular maintenance to prevent decay and insect damage.

Cedar & Copper Roof, Copper Gutters, Pella Windows

Cedar roofs, typically made of cedar shake or shingle, are known for their natural, rustic aesthetics, good insulation properties, and durability, although they require regular maintenance to prevent rot and insect damage. Copper roofs, while expensive, offer exceptional longevity, resistance to corrosion and wind damage, and a distinct aesthetic that patinas over time. Copper gutters are similarly durable, and can effectively manage water runoff while adding a stylish accent to the building's exterior. Pella windows are renowned for their quality, versatility in design, and energy efficiency, available in various materials including wood, fiberglass, and vinyl.

Shingle Roof, Gutters, Windows

Shingle roofs, usually made from asphalt, are installed by first laying a water-resistant underlayment on the bare roof deck, then nailing the shingles in an overlapping pattern from the bottom up to shed water effectively. Gutters are typically installed along the edges of the roof, sloping towards downspouts; they are either hung from the roof's edge or secured to the fascia, and joints are sealed to prevent leakage. Window installation involves creating an opening in the wall, placing the window in the opening and securing it with screws, then ensuring it is level and square before sealing all gaps with caulking and foam insulation to prevent drafts and water leaks.

Chimney: Siding & Cap

Chimneys are often sided to match or complement the exterior of the house, using materials such as brick, stone, or vinyl, and the siding is installed by attaching it to the chimney frame with nails or screws and ensuring it is weather-tight. A chimney cap, typically made of metal like stainless steel or copper, is used to prevent rain, debris, and animals from entering the chimney while still allowing smoke to exit. The installation process for a chimney cap involves measuring the chimney's outer dimensions or inner flue, choosing a cap that fits, and then either screwing it into the chimney crown or sliding it into the flue and tightening it with set screws.
