Project Description

This residential home in Milwaukee decided to have a complete replacement roof installed after trying several times to take care of the leaking issues. There were several missing shingles, areas of mold growing from moisture underneath and improper chimney repairs. We tore off the one layer of existing shingles then installed Alco Ice and Water shield on all of the eaves with the roof deck covered in 15# felt paper. Ice and water shield was also installed underneath the new closed cut metal valley. Some of the other materials for the replacement roof included GAF Prostart on the eaves and rakes. Then 15 squares of GAF Timberline High Definition (HD) shingles in Charcoal were put on. The old chimney patchwork was removed and replaced with properly installed flashing that will not only provide a watertight seal but looks good too. The existing damaged air vent was replaced with a sleek slant back in black. Aluminum drip edge was fastened around the entire roof and a new gutter apron. The ridge vent was capped with GAF Seal-A-Ridge for reliable protection at the hips and ridges to ensure durability of this lifetime warrantied roofing system. This replacement roof will give the homeowners a peace of mind that their roof is sound and leak free.
