After these steps have been completed, the shingles are next. The prep work is essential to laying a good foundation for your roof. If these steps are not completed, much like a house without a foundation, your roof will fall apart. Our sales rep will go over the product lines we carry, colors to choose from and qualities that are offered. This is the customizable part and the part of the roof that will be seen.
- Attic Ventilation - This is placed on the peaks and edges of the roof to help reduce attic moisture and heat. The temperature naturally changes within the home and since heat rises, the hottest place in your home is your attic. The heat causes moisture to evaporate and rise and without proper ventilation, this heat and moisture has nowhere to go. To prevent heat and moisture from being trapped in the attic/roof, we put the ventilation system in place to eliminate the problem of black mold and deterioration of the decking under the roof.
- Ridge Cap Shingles - This is the finishing touch that helps defend against leaks at the hips and ridges. There are a variety of peaks and turns on a home that causes shingles to lay differently. Without a ridge rap, there would be exposed parts of the materials underneath creating opportunity for leaks and your shingles to start pealing back.
