COMPLETE ROOF REPLACEMENT

HISTORIC HOME IN LAKES REGION OF NEW HAMPSHIRE GETS A COMPLETE ROOF REPLACEMENT!

Old, weathered roof before replacement

Historic NH Home

Original 2600 sq. ft. roof.  Missing shingles, weathered, old and in aesthetically poor quality.   
Full tear-off, replacing 1×6 tongue and groove planks and installing underlayment.
Leaving no space for any pesky water leaks by skylights.
Brand new CertainTeed Landmark Cobble Stone Gray shingles.

Installed Eave Vent (take a look at the raised section of the roof, which provides a ventilation chute) and Leaf Relief!
Here’s another shot of the Eave Vent and Leaf Relief
Completed view of the back of the house.  This brand new roof gives so much new life to this beautiful home in the woods! 

View of the front of the house with the brand new roof fully in place.  The Cobble Stone Gray provides a great contrast with the original wood siding of the house!  This historic carriage home will now be able to stand the test of time with a new roof that will outlast many stormy, windy, rainy days to come.  Another happy customer!

Another great roofing job by XL Home Improvements!

In addition to the ridge vent system, edgevent was installed at the eaves therefore creating air flow. New 5/8″ Decking installed on he rear of the roof, exterior walls had to be tied back into the main structure along with bad wood replaced as necessary on the rest of the roof.

SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT ON A FLAT ROOF

 

XL Sign1

Skylight was leaking badly, Glass and curb were damaged. XL Home Improvements removed the skylight and cleaned up the area. We made a new curb and packed it out to except the new unit. The curb was flashed with Single Ply Membrane and new Bubble skylight installed. The flashing and surrounding roof was then coated with Fibered Aluminum Coating.
