First, we protect the areas that are most vulnerable to leaks. These areas include skylights, vents, and chimneys.
2. Roofing Cement
Next, we apply roofing cement. Roofing cement is ideal for hand tab shingles, waterproofing effectively all around those vulnerable leak areas.
Our team will then provide proper ventilation. Building codes require that all structures be equipped with quality ventilation.
4. Valley Treatment
We can then perform valley treatment. This type of treatment stops damages caused by snow and ice buildup.
5. Edge Treatment
Edge treatment is also an option and is used to ensure efficient water shedding at the roof’s edge.
6. Eaves Protector
We then install eave protectors, a waterproofing membrane that protects your roof during winter freeze/thaw cycles.
An underlayment is then added, which helps to shed water that may be driven under your roof’s shingles by high winds.
Finally, shingles are added. We have a wide selection of shingles available including fibreglass, architectural, metal, and cedar. The types of shingles you use determine how long your roof will last.
