One of the most important parts of a home is the roof. The old saying about having a roof over your head is one of the truest statements you will hear today. The roof experts at Canton Construction Corp can handle your whole roof installation or replacement.
There are several steps to perform new roof installations, the first of those steps is the removal of the old roof. Of course, our experts will let you know if you need to totally tear off the old roof, or if you can shingle over it. We take many things into consideration before removing your old roof. You never want to add too many layers to a roof which could cause you problems in the long run.
With any new roof, we like to evaluate the structure under the shingles. We make sure the foundation under the shingles is strong and if not replace any of the damaged wood that is needed. After the flat roof panels are inspected and replaced where needed, we next focus on ice protection. Living in Michigan, we all know that we can get some pretty harsh winters which may cause ice build up. By laying an ice guard on the base roof before the shingles can help prevent ice build up.
After the ice guard, the next step would be to add the drip edge. This helps with water drainage from the roof. Before the shingles are installed an underlayment is put on the roof, this is sometimes known as felt paper or synthetic underlayment. This also helps with water drainage and helps prevent leaks.
Finally, we add the shingles to the roof. We always recommend new quality shingles such as IKO, Owen Corning or Certainteed. Our representatives can help you determine which shingle and color will work best with your home. We also can help you determine if you need more ventilation for your roof. Proper ventilation from peak vents and other vents will prevent your attic from overheating. You always want to have proper venting because extreme heat can cause your shingles to curl and shorten the life of your roof.
