Total Protection Roofing System
Total Protection is more than shingle deep
It takes more than shingles to protect your home. It takes an integrated system of components and layers designed to help perform in three critical areas.
- SEAL Helps create a water-proof barrier
- DEFEND Helps protect against nature’s elements
- BREATHE For balanced attic ventilation
Tear Off and Decking
Either day before or the morning of your roof installation, your shingles and a dumpster will be delivered. Removing the existing shingles and underlayment from your roof is the first step of your roof installation. Then we inspect the decking to ensure there is no rot. If we do find rot we will replace those areas before we being installing the new Total Protection Roofing System.
Drip edges are metal sheets, usually shaped like an “L,” installed at the edge of the roof. Drip Edge serves a vital function by directing water away from the fascia and into the gutter and minimizes the possibility to water getting under tech shingle.
