MILL BRANCH ROAD – TALLAHASSEEAfter years of use, this well weathered single family home was in need of a fresh new roof. Once we removed the old roofing materials, we inspected the plywood decking, added fasteners, and replaced the rotted wood sections. Afterwards, we rolled out the underlayment, which would provide a layer of waterproofing between the plywood and shingles. Next, we installed the drip edge, new pipe flashing, and ridge vent. Then it was ready for the most visible layer, the shingles. The owners chose a sleek slate grey shingle to complement the existing paint color, ending with a clean new look, as shown in the finished photos below.
FOLKSTONE ROAD – TALLAHASSEE, FLThe winding roads lined with heritage oaks, seven area lakes, local wildlife and fauna make up a lovely backdrop for this single family ranch style house. The owners worked closely with us to decide how we would re-roof their home, especially in the early planning stages, and expressed their concern over meeting a tight timetable. The end result of that planning was a concise outline of what quality GAF certified materials we would use, how much we would use, exactly how much they would cost, and how long it would take to do the job. Once everything was delivered, we removed the old shingles, boots, vents and other materials, and disposed of the resulting debris. After inspecting and repairing the underlying decking, we put in the new underlayment, vents, edges, and boots. The owners chose “Birchwood” colored shingles, which we installed, giving the new roof a grey tone that matched the existing brick and coral colored paint exterior of the house. And we met the deadline with time to spare.
ROSE HILL DRIVE – TALLAHASSEE, FLThe distinctive elegance of this Mediterranean styled home was slightly marred by the years of wear and tear reflected on the red Roman tile roof and underlying woodwork. Since much of the tile was still usable, we removed and stacked it neatly on the upper porch to enable us to inspect and repair the decking underneath. After replacing or repairing the damaged tiles, decking, wood furring, weatherproofing, flashing, and stucco, we reset the tiles on the roof, intermixing the new and the old to create a pleasing visual arpeggio.
CAMELLIAWOOD CIR – TALLAHASSEE, FLHomeowners of this duplex with intersecting gables had found a buyer for their home, but it needed a quick re-roofing to meet the terms of the sale. We were able to demo the existing roof, make the needed repairs to the substrate, and re-roof it in a timely manner that allowed them to make their sale deadline.
Tile Roof Repair
MILLER BRIDGE RD – TALLAHASSEE, FL
Located in Bobbins Trace, a luxury neighborhood that offers access to the city’s best schools, stores, and restaurants, this home needed repairs on two tiled sections and the flat roof that connected the two. We repaired the roof, leaving the house as beautiful as its verdant surroundings.
BLIND BROOK CT – TALLAHASSEE FLOne of a row of townhouses located in walking distance of a scenic local prairie lake, this townhouse had a leaking roof that needed to be replaced to avoid further water damage. To that end, we removed the existing shingles and underlayment. Then we had access to and repaired the damaged decking. The final phase was to put down new underlayment, flashing, hardy-board siding, and grey architectural shingles to match the building’s new grey and white color scheme.
Chimney Flashing Repair
FRANK SHAW ROAD – TALLAHASSEE, FLAfter a roof replacement done by another company, the homeowners discovered their new roof was leaking. They called in three separate contractors to find the problem before they called our company. We were happy to be able to find the leak – the flashing at the base of the chimney. We installed a new copper flashing system, applied a clear Garland waterproofing to the brink, and coated the chimney cap with Garland silicone. And, because so many contractors had come in repaired it, we extended them 5 year craftsmanship warranty.
WEST MILLARBRIDGE ROAD – TALLAHASSEE, FLAs this case illustrates, incorrect flashing installation is often the cause of leaks on roofs with chimneys. The company that put in the original flashing on this house did not do it correctly, which left an expansion and contraction process that permitted filtration when it rained. We remedied the situation by removing the old flashing system and reinstalling a new one with the proper waterproofing products that would allow it to expand and contract with the seasons, and maintain a tight seal against water filtration.
RUSTIC DRIVE – TALLAHASSEE, FL
Time and the weather had taken their toll on this ranch house, leaving the roof with considerable damage. We pulled off the old roof, repaired damaged decking underneath, and put in a new roof using a 2-ply GAF self-adherent rolled roofing system. Once we were done, everything was right and tight again, and ready for the next rain storm.
