When deciding on a new roof, make sure to include all the manufacturer recommended components. Each shingle manufacturer may have slightly different names, but most require specific components to meet warranty requirements. If the recommended materials are not used during installation, your extended warranty may be void. Below are a list of roofing materials that Chapan Construction uses on Owens Corning Duration shingle installs.
After a clean tear off down to the decking, Chapman Construction protects the deck with a synthetic underlayment. 30# felt is a viable option, but for Owens Corning installs we prefer to use ProArmor. This roof underlayment has slip resistant features that provide a safer install for our workers. In addition, it is designed to repel moisture and provide exceptional protection to water infiltration.
Every roof requires a starting strip of shingles, that are used on the eaves and rakes of your home. We utilize Owens Corning own brand of starter strips, that help seal the edges of your roof and provide up to 130 mph of wind protection.
Southern Indiana weather can be a challenge for any trade that spends its time outdoors. Roofers in particular are exposed to the elements, ranging from triple digits in the summer to snow in the winter. But when is the best time to get a roof in Evansville? Below are some Pros and Cons to getting a roof in the winter versus the summer and what it can mean to your projects budget.
- A new roof in the winter is historically cheaper than getting one in the spring and summer. Material costs have yet to go up due to manufacturer adjustments and labor costs are more competitive due to a slow down in schedule.
- The physical installs of the shingles are typically of a higher quality, due to the lower temperatures. Chapman Construction roofs year round, and meets manufacturer recommended temperatures for asphalt shingle installs. Winter is an ideal install time, because in the summer shingles are hot and scar easily from foot traffic. A winter roof will seal in the sun and look cleaner when the project is completed.
- All warranties and guarantees are in place during the winter, just like in a spring and summer install!
- Roofing crews are happier in the cooler temperatures. Roofing is hard work and exhausting, cooler temperatures make for a more pleasant install. Remember, on a 90 degree day in the summer, your roof surface temperature can range from 140-168 degrees!
