It is also important for you to select a roofing contractor who understands building science and the reasons for premature failure in roofs, including moisture and ventilation issues. Allowing us to handle your roofing needs puts our years of experience with moisture issues to work identifying and preventing substructure damage. Replacing a roof is more than just tearing off the old roof and putting on a new one. It is the perfect time to address any ventilation, moisture or structural issues with over-span rafters. As NORMI-certified experts in moisture prevention, detection, and mold assessment/cleanup it is critical to address these issues prior to or in conjunction with a roof replacement.

As your proven experts, we bring our years of experience to your unique roofing problems. We’re not interested in turning over roofing jobs as quickly as possible; we’re committed to pointing out and solving any underlying moisture/ventilation issues your roof structure/attic may have so you can make the best informed decision for your investment.

Signs You Need a New Roof

The average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is between 20-30 years, but there are signs to watch out to see if you need to replace it before then.

From the inside of your attic, if you can see staining or water damage, it may be time to replace your roof. Poor ventilation in your attic may lead to moisture getting trapped and providing the perfect environment for a mold colony. As a mold colony grows, it can damage roof decking and rafter members and weaken the overall structure. Dark streaks or stains can indicate that the roof is failing or suffering ice damming and water penetration. Any evidence of sagging or deflection with the roof decking anywhere on your roof may be proof the shingles are no longer protecting the house or there are prior workmanship issues.

The outside appearance of the shingles is also indicative of whether it’s time to replace a roof. While it’s normal for a few granules on the roof to sometimes end up in the gutter, excessive granules in the gutters on an older roof is a more significant concern. Over time as the granules fall off, they expose the asphalt directly to the sun, and the shingles begin to deteriorate more quickly. Shingles without granules are near the very end of their lifespan.

Hipping, curling, cracking or cupping is a sign of weathering and most likely needed roof replacement.

Ventilation, Flashing, and Gutter Problems

Shingles are not the only indications of age or trouble on a roof. Hidden maintenance problems caused by poor ventilation, incorrectly installed flashing, or clogged gutters can cause water damage that can go undetected for years.
Flashing moves water away from vulnerable spots on a home, and it is an essential barrier for moisture. Flashing that was installed incorrectly, has shifted over time, or was damaged in a storm may be exposed.

Sometimes homes are just designed with poor ventilation, but we can help you fix this. When a poorly ventilated attic causes ice to melt and then refreeze at the edge of a roof, this forms ice dams, which leads to damage under shingles as the ice melts again. Over time, this moisture damage becomes the perfect breeding ground for a mold colony. In the summer, a poorly ventilated attic has no way to protect the home from the sun, so the air conditioner works overtime to cool the home down.

Ice can cause attic/roofing issues
Smart ventilation systems help avoid mold issues in attics
Smart ventilation systems are low voltage fan systems that work off of a dew point to bring dry air in and expel moist air. By removing the humid air and cooling the attic down, it removes one of the major sources of mold growth. A smart ventilation system is quiet and doesn’t need any outside control since it uses sensors on the outside and inside an attic to determine when to turn off and on. The system can check itself and alert you when it’s not working so that you can always be sure that the moisture in your attic remains in the safe range.
Improperly installed or clogged gutters can also cause water damage that shortens the lifespan of a roof. When a gutter is doing its job correctly, it directs water away from a home. When it rains, if the rainwater pours off of the top of the gutters rather than running down through the drain spouts, then the gutters have become filled with leaves or debris. Over time, water in the gutters can damage the soffits and fascia of your roofing system.

Our 4-Step Process

1. The Free Consultation

At our first meeting, we will do a roof service condition inspection. We’ll be looking for general wear and tear on shingles, the surface condition of the granules, and any cracking, blistering, or curling of the shingles. We’ll try to determine at this point how many layers of shingles there might be on the roof. We’ll also inspect the flashing and look for any damage that may have been caused by wind, storms, or animals.

Because we care about the structural integrity of your entire home, we’ll also inspect the subsurface materials in a sheeting and roof deck inspection. We’ll look for any dips or irregularities in the actual framing of the roof that may indicate contamination of the plywood. We’ll go into the attic and inspect from the inside, looking for issues with the framing or the sheeting that may be causing wear and tear issues. In addition, we’ll give it a visual moisture and mold inspection as well and a ventilation system inspection, which will include soffit venting, ridge venting, gable venting, and roof venting. We determine what kind of ventilation you have and if it’s adequate, or if there are underlying ventilation and mold issues that indicate it’s not allowing moist hot air to escape.

2. The Plan

Once we’ve established the scope of your roofing project, then we’ll sit down with you to find a solution that fits your budget and your needs. We know that sometimes you may want to focus on more urgent problems first. That’s why we’re not afraid to tell you, “Hey, do this right now and then do that in 3-5 years”. We want to do business with you for decades, and not for just one job. At this point, we’ll also go over material choices, and we’ll present you with samples and warranty options.

3. Installation

Our service coordinator will finalize everything and schedule a date for installation. Our production department will coordinate behind the scenes to get labor and material delivery ready to go, which includes the delivery of dumpsters, the protection of your landscaping, and property safety equipment. You’ll meet the crew the morning we start on the job.,

Our jobs usually last from 1-3 days depending on the size and scope of work, and our crew will keep you informed of the results of their inspection after the current roof material has been removed. are some problems that can only be seen after you remove the shingles, and we want to solve the issue before a new roof is put back on. We’ll clean up the materials on the job site before we consider our job done.

4. Follow-up

The production supervisor will do a final quality check, and the service coordinator will contact you to schedule a date for this review. Our staff will register your property with GAF Master Elite Contractors for the warranty that you’ve chosen.
