Why Choose Us?
A roof really is an entire system, including many components that are designed to offer a watertight covering across the entire surface. If not installed correctly, it will not last as long as expected and can often cause a number of extremely costly problems.
Although many companies are willing to simply nail new shingles on top of old shingles, we always advises stripping the old materials complete off, all the way down to the deck, and then adding the new materials.
With years of industry experience, in our opinion, DeNailing & ReNailing is a must! There are several problems with simply adding a new layer of shingles on top of the old material. Any vulnerabilities or defects affecting the plywood deck or truss system can go unnoticed. If moisture has entered under the shingles, the deck will be weak and adding the weight of a whole new layer of shingles will only put more stress on those structural defects.
Adding a new layer of shingles on top of an old shingles will also trap any moisture and condensation that is currently under the old shingle. This can have detrimental effects on the underlayment, decking, and the new shingles in a few years, cutting the life of the new installation drastically. The moisture can actually cause the original smooth nails to pop out from the plywood deck and push up through the new shingle layer. This will open up the new installation to more water damage and weaken the entire system.
Our goal is to “get it right the first time” in order to save the homeowner time and money by preventing future costly repairs. As with all of our services, our replacements are always done to the highest of standards. We remove all shingles & felt paper prior to installing the new system a home. All flashing areas surrounding drip edges, chimneys, plumbing vents and valleys are inspected and replaced if necessary. Most important, the entire plywood deck will be denailed and nailed back in place with 2 1/2″ ring shank nails to replace the old 2″ smooth nails. Updated building codes require use of these stronger anchors to firmly attach your roof to the truss system so it’s imperative that they are strong and up to code. Leaving those old smooth nails instead of replacing them can spell real problems if high winds occur. These important improvements can’t be made unless the old material is stripped, which is why we always recommend this to our customers. Typically, a new roof installed by us will have a 255 lb. uplift rating which is highly important here in Florida.
