Roof Replacement Case Studies: Roof and gutter replacement
The roof on this home in Toledo, Ohio had ongoing leaking, with wind driven rain getting in under the shingles and damaging the wood of the deck. There was also a lot of visual wear on the shingles, which had become curled and brittle. An unprotected, vulnerable deck can cause moisture to infiltrate insulation, which can lead to mold and mildew, a much harder problem to resolve. When damp plywood dries, it is also very ineffective at holding nails and will unfortunately expedite the failure of a roof, which had occurred here.
We removed the layers of old roofing and replaced it. The final touch was to install a brand-new gutter system. Now this roof has a dry, well ventilated base for its shingles, this home will have beyond adequate protection for years to come.
