Why Chapman Construction recommends Duration:
The Duration line of shingles provides exceptional color options, protection and longevity. But it’s the parts you don’t see, that makes it our choice, for your next roof. Take for example their patented SureNail Technology, which helps to provide wind resistance up to 130 mph! Along with Tru-Bond sealant and Triple Layer Protection, Owens Corning Duration should be considered on your next roofing install.
Chapman Construction focuses on providing a complete roof system on every home we touch. Every home is unique, so a complete roof can mean different things. Part of our job is to identify problems while we are roofing and address them before the job is complete. Roofs do not consist of shingles alone, this article will cover other components that we recommend replacing during a new roof install.
Chimneys are very common in Evansville, so when we install a new roof, we always insist on reflashing. This process includes Weather Watch Ice and Water Shield installed directly to the decking around the chimney, new metal step flashing, and cutting into the brick or stone to recess the counter flash. This reduces future problems, by addressing the leak prone area while we replace your shingles.
Updating the vinyl siding on a home is a great way to add curb appeal. Like other products, vinyl siding has improved over the years and we are proud to offer a wide range of siding types and quality levels. We offer installation of traditional lap siding, dutch lap, board and batten, and shake. By combining different types it’s possible to add character to your home and achieve the design you are looking for.
In roofing, each house is unique and requires special attention to areas that are considered leak prone, which includes chimneys. A chimney can be found in different locations on a roof, which each require different attention, to ensure water does not penetrate the roof line. A chimney in the middle of a roof, at the bottom of a roof, or in a valley all require special techniques to ensure long lasting water protection.
Chapman Construction specializes in properly sealing chimneys with step flashing, counter flashing, and in some cases building custom valleys to divert the water flow. The building up of the roof line, is called a Cricket or saddle. This new ridge is added to a roof to keep water from pooling up against the chimney, where it would be more likely to leak inside the home.
