When replacing your 3 tab, steel roof, cedar shake, or any type of shingle, we recommend going with architectural style shingles. When replacing architectural style shingles in Lindstrom, there are a few methods a lot of contractors may use. One being slapping shingles on top of the old shingles once or twice for a band aid type style fix. We prefer a more thorough process. We recommend stripping off the old shingles, all the way down to the plywood below. Doing this when properly replacing shingles will give us an idea if there has been any water damage or infiltration that could be causing issues in your attic.
Water Protection under Your Shingles
After the old shingles are stripped and wood is inspected we then felt your roof with tar paper. Using tar paper, under the shingles and on top of the plywood increases your home’s protection from ice and water damage. If your property has any chimneys or vents we have the proper metal flashing to insure that there is no unwanted access into your home through the cracks near any appliances.
Finishing Roof Touches
Next our architectural style shingles can be put on. From the starter strip to the cap, our architectural style shingles are the best to endure rain, sleet, hail, snow, and sun all year around. The strategically laid out pattern of placement insures that all of the runoff goes down into your drainage system and not pooled up between shingles. And finally, the cap is placed to close everything up.
