Roof Replacement Case Studies: Roof Replacement – Prematurely Failing Shingles on Torrington CT Home
The owners of this two family home in Torrington Connecticut called us to have a new roof put on their house, however, the roof was done just five years ago!
Upon arriving we did notice that the roof system appeared to be deteriorating quickly, much sooner than anticipated for sure. After a careful inspection we noticed two key factors in the premature ageing of the roof, lack of ventilation as well as no underlayment on between the shingles and the roof deck, not even felt paper! Once we had the roof stripped we quickly fixed the issue of not having any deck protection by adding Owens Corning WeatherLock ice and water barrier as well as Deck Defense Synthetic Underlayment to protect the foundation of the roof system. After that we installed adequate ventilation to the attic space to ensure extreme temperatures wouldn’t wear the shingles away from the inside out. Finally we installed new Owens Corning True Definition Duration Shingles to protect the home and look great for years to come.
