How We Operate
An average-size roof is stripped, installed, and totally cleaned up in one day to protect your home from the elements and minimize your inconvenience. We use the highest quality materials and all of our workers are trained certified installers using the strictest guidelines set forth by our manufacturers’ standards and our own quality controls. Each home is prepped and protected prior to stripping. And the grounds are thoroughly cleaned with a magnetic nail sweeper.

Ice dams are formed when heat from the inside of a home escapes into the attic and warms the roof decking during the winter. This heat, combined with heat from the sun, can melt snow on the roof. Melting snow on the upper roof and in the valleys then runs down toward the eaves as water. When it reaches the cold eaves and gutters it refreezes. The continual thaw and re-freeze process creates ice dams. The result is water backing up under the roof shingles or behind fascia boards where it can soak through the roof decking or wall sheathing, causing damage to attics, ceilings and walls.
