Your home is your castle, your safe harbor. The part of your home that protects you more than any other is the roof. Why do you think the phrase ‘roof over your head’ is so common. Why not ‘walls around you’ or something like that? The roof is what provides you, your family and your home itself with the protection from the elements.
To us, your roof is our only priority. Our mission is to ensure that every one of our customers has the peace of mind that comes with knowing that no matter what Mother Nature brings, your family and home will be protected by a correctly diagnosed and repaired roof.

What Makes Up a Complete Roof
Your roof is more than just a bunch of shingles or tiles laid on top of your roof. That’s why you need a roofer that understands the entire roof system and what’s required to ensure that your roof maintains its integrity long-term in the face of harsh weather year after year.
The final line of defense against the elements is the underlayment which is install directly on the wooden roof deck. The underlayment is a typically a black plastic-based sheeting that acts as a waterproofing barrier. It is important to choose the right underlayment for your specific roof and climate. A correctly selected and installed underlayment is the foundation for a long-lasting protective roof system.
A leaking roof is quite often incorrectly installed flashing. Certain parts of the roof are more susceptible for leakage because of the way water flows across the roof during a rainstorm. Flashing provides critical protection for vulnerable areas of the roof, including edges, valleys, roof deck intersections, and around chimneys, skylights and vents. Incorrectly installed flashing may be exposed only during very strong winds and rain. We had a customer whose roof would leak once every couple of years when the wind and rain combined in just the right intensity. Two different roofers erroneously claimed to have fixed the problem by replacing shingles, but we found that it was a problem with the flashing around their chimney. Just because you see that the flashing was installed, that doesn’t mean that it’s providing flawless protection.
The first line of defense against harsh weather conditions is the arrangement of shingles. When shingles or tiles are laid incorrectly, or too hastily, you may have gaps that can create vulnerabilities that will eventually wear your roofing components down and result in a leak. Strong winds contribute to gaps in your protection. When shingles aren’t sufficiently anchored, winds can blow entire shingles away without your knowledge. You’ll notice when the next strong rains come along and water seeps into your ceiling and/or walls. We will inspect your shingles or tiles to ensure that they are securely anchored and laid in the appropriate sequence to provide the utmost defense.
