May 10, 2023Blog, Roof Replacement

Client’s Vision and Requirements

To give this home a brand new look, the homeowner wanted to change the roof color from brown to black. The homeowner also has plans to update the siding in the future, so we kept that in mind while working on the home. Additionally, we updated the roof on the homeowner’s shed and removed the unnecessary satellite dishes that were detracting from the home’s overall appearance.

Materials Used

For the roofing materials, the team used Owens Corning TruDefinition® shingles in Onyx Black, which provided an updated and modern look to the home. No siding trim or gutters were installed as part of this project.

Despite the scope of work, we were able to complete the project in just one day! This quick turnaround time is a testament to the team’s expertise and experience in roofing services.

Improving Attic Ventilation

During this project, we also improved the attic ventilation by removing the attic fan and installing a new ridge vent. This is an air exhaust vent installed on the peak of the roof.

Discovering Rotted Wood

One notable aspect of the project was that while removing the old roof, the team discovered that the roof over the front porch was rotted. We promptly replaced all of the sheathing (plywood) over the porch. This is a prime example of why we never roof over the existing roof. While you may save money doing this, you may also be missing a major problem, and adding weight to an area that is already compromised. This is an example of the team’s commitment to quality work and to ensuring that no corners are cut.

This project was so impressive that the homeowner’s next-door neighbor came by while we were doing this job, and we ended up doing their roof too!
