Roof Replacement Case Studies: Steep Slope Roofing in Brooklyn, CT
This Gambrel or “Barn” roof in Brooklyn recently got a new Owens Corning roof installed by the specialists at Millstream Construction.
Great care needs to be taken when working on this style of roof structure, not only because of obvious safety concerns, but also to maintain manufacture warranties by ensuring a proper installation. What can happen is that since it’s so steep, the shingles will have added strain against them and they may not properly seal to the adjacent shingles. This ultimately leads to creating an issue with wind resistance.
Fortunately, the highly trained install crew at Millstream Construction were able to effectively and properly install the shingles on this tricky roof design to not just look great, but also to protect the structure for years to come.
