Every part of your roof plays a vital role in protecting you and your family from the weather. You may not have to replace everything when you get a new roof, such as vents and other roof accessor
Here are some of the items you might find in our estimate:
Sheathing refers to the wooden planks that make up the roof's framework. Your shingles and other components are put on these boards.
You may need to replace the sheathing on your roof when you get a new roof. After they finish pulling off your old roof, your roofing contractor won't know if it has to be replaced until the old roof is removed.
If rotten boards are discovered, your roofing contractor will have to repair them before proceeding with the installation of your roofing components. If your contractor determines that the integrity of your sheathing is sound, it will be able to support your new asphalt roof.
Roof flashing is metal that is installed everywhere your shingles come into contact with another object, such as a wall, chimney, or open valleys.
When you receive a new roof, you might not need to replace your flashing. If your flashing isn't corroded and the metal's integrity is still intact, you won't need to replace it. Roof flashing must be changed if it is broken, corroded, or if you are upgrading from a 3-tab to a dimensional asphalt shingle.
The replacement of your roof must involve the installation of new underlayment. Underlayment is a protective layer of felt (15 lb, 30 lb, or synthetic) that is laid over your sheathing.
Keep in mind that your roof system's underlayment is the sheathing's last line of protection. It's critical to spend as much money as possible on high-quality roofing materials.
The metal flashing added at the roof's edge is known as a drip edge. This prevents water flow away from the house.
When you obtain a new roof, you'll need to replace the drip edge. Having it on your roof is required by your local building code. If the drip edge is not properly installed, you may fail your house inspection.
You'll have to replace it before you can even put your house on the market if you pick a contractor that cuts corners and doesn't install your drip edge. Read this article to learn why it's critical to select a local roofing contractor to avoid this from happening to you.
Your roof valleys are critical for keeping water flowing down your roof in the correct direction. As a result, they require protection from the steady flow of water that occurs when it rains.
Ice and water shield is a waterproof coating that protects your roof from ice and water damage. Ice and water shields need to be tested for penetration throughout the perimiter and valley of your roof. It's also critical to keep your valleys free of debris as part of your roof shield installation.
If you don't test for leakage, water will run over your shingles and soak through the barrier, producing leaks in the sheathing. It's important to test for water leaks to prevent damage and protect the life-span of your roof.
The majority of people believe that roof replacement just entails replacing shingles. The old layer of shingles must be removed before new shingles can be installed. Before shingles are placed, we replace the underlayment and flashing.
At Clearview Roofers, we include all material costs in our roofing estimates. Plus, you don't have to worry about your shingles, flashing, underlayment, and ice shields being installed incorrectly.
The trim put at the apex where the two roof slopes meet is ridge capping. They're thicker than regular shingles and come pre-bent to fit your roof's ridges.
During roof replacement, ridge capping must be rebuilt. Some roofing contractors attempt to save money using 3-tab asphalt shingles as ridge capping.
They're not designed for this and could cause your roof to leak. It would help if you always looked over your roofing estimate with your contractor to ensure you're getting actual ridge capping.
If you don't have enough attic ventilation, trapped hot and cold air will significantly diminish the life of your roof. As you can see, it's essential to have proper ventilation in your attic.
Depending on the condition of the vent, we can always reuse it if it's in good condition. We can always incorporate new turbine ventilation units as part of the estimate if you like.
To prevent water running down your roof's pipes and into your home, your roof pipes need to be covered. This is why pipe boots come in handy.
A plumbing vent boot, pipe boot, or pipe flashing is another name for a roof boot. Lead is a flexible metal that is widely used to make it. This is critical because it allows the roofing contractor to adjust the base to the roof pitch and bend the boot's top into the pipe end for a weathertight seal.
One of the most frequent leaks a roofing contractor finds is cracked pipe boots. As a result, it's critical to have your pipe boots inspected on a regular basis as part of your roof maintenance.
When you replace your roof, you'll replace the majority of the components and accessories of your roof system. However, if the roof sheathing and flashing are in good shape, replacement may not be necessary.
