Roof Replacement at West Street in Rosenberg, TX
On this home in Rosenberg, TX, this roof was in need of replacement due to hail damage. During our initial assessment of the roof, we discovered there were multiple layers of roof on this house. We removed one layer of 20-year shingles plus wood shingles on the back of the house and 2 layers of 20-year shingles plus wood shingles on the front of the house. We also removed the old felt paper and the old roof jacks. Once all of the layers were removed and the rafters were exposed, we then installed CDX-T decking (plywood with techshield) as the base of the roof.
We installed new 30 pound felt paper on the decking as the underlayment and Owens Corning WeatherLock in the valleys. Once the new underlayment was installed, we then installed Owens Corning Supreme shingles in the color of Autumn Brown which carries a 25 year warranty.
As we installed the new shingles, we installed new new lead roof jacks, replacing the old plastic ones that were installed originally. Once we reached the peak of the roof, we extended their ventilation from the original small section of ridge vent that cover only about a thirds of their entire ridge to Owen Corning Ventsure Ridge Vents across the entire ridge of the house to help maximize ventilation in the attic.
After completing the install of the ridge vents we then finished the installation of the roof by installing the color matching ridge caps on all ridges and painted all roof accessories to blend with the roof color.
