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!

ROOF INSTALL IN HATFIELD PA 19440

Leaks were found all over the house coming from the old style aluminum ridge vent. These vents come loose with time and wind. Water penetrated and damaged the OSB sheathing. This house needed a new roof install.

Ice and Water Shield was installed to the eaves, sidewalls, penetrations and the entire rear gusset area that tends to hold ice and snow for long periods of time.

Certainteed Landmark shingles were installed in the color “weathered wood”
