Roof Replacement Case Studies: No Roof Deck Protection on Amston, Connecticut Home
A home we recently re-roofed in Amston, Connecticut wanted to ensure they were protected from harsh elements Hartford county often experiences. They had been under the impression that the previous contractor had put 6′ of ice and water barrier from the eave – that was not the case however.
Once the shingles were stripped off we realized that there was no ice and water barrier at all! In many cases the underlayments below the shingles are the most important part of the roof system. If wind driven rain or ice damming manages to get through the shingles the underlayment is the only line of defense for the interior of the home and roof deck. Now the new roof system has sufficient ice and water barrier as well as synthetic underlayment to protect the home and give the owners peace of mind.
