Tear-Offs and Replacements

The process of installing a new roof when a roofing system fails. Roofing system failures can be caused by a number of factors, including age, severe weather, poor workmanship, defective materials, and improper specification of a roofing system, abuse and failure to maintain the roof via inspections.

Roof Repair

The process where an existing roofing system has additions and adjustments made to it, such as caulking, re-roofing and repairing penetration to fix leaks in the roofing system. We offer repairs for Homeowners, Real Estate Agents and Insurance claims.

Maintenance

Involves the physical inspection of an existing roofing system to determine its current condition, detect weakness and failures and identify any potential future problems. Through a program of regularly scheduled annual or semiannual inspections, the company`s technicians assist owner in protecting their roofing investments by seeking to identify damage in its early stages. Early detection of leaks and roof system failures make it possible for the company to repair and extend the life of a roof system, which is significantly less expensive and time consuming than re-roofing.

Roof Cleaning

It is wise to avoid chlorine bleach as a roof cleaner. Chlorine bleach can remove the natural color from wood roofing shakes, it can kill vegetation on the ground if it runs onto the ground as it is rinsed from the roof and it can accelerate corrosion of metal gutter and downspout systems.

What causes ugly roof stains?

It is actually a type of algae growth called Gloecapsa Magma. This algae is spread from home to home by airborne spores. When the spores land on shingles that are moist, they feed on the organic material in the shingles.
It is common for algae infestations to begin on the Northern and/or Western slopes of the roof, or in heavily shaded areas. These are the areas of the roof that are the most seriously affected by the algae. If left untreated, algae can cover the entire roof of a home.

How can ugly stains be removed?

Our Roof cleaning process includes using a non-toxic oxygen bleach which is a powder mixed with water and applied to a cool roof surface, preferably on an overcast day. Keeping the roof surface wet with the solution for 20 minutes, and then lightly scrub the roof surface, the algae almost always comes right off. Severely stained roofs may require multiple applications of the oxygen bleach solution. The solution also helps to loosen shallow moss roots.
The result is a clean and beautiful roof free of algae stains without any harm to vegetation or surfaces around the home.

How to prevent algae growth?

Z-Stop is a zinc roof moss, algae and fungus inhibitor that is applied in strips to old or new roofs. It works with any wood or composition roof. The natural action of rain water time-releases zinc carbonate, a proven fungi stat, which then washes down the roof preventing destructive roof moss, algae and fungus growth. We install it at your ridges for added protection.

All warranties are created equal?

Having your roof installed by a roofer not certified by the manufacturer can have a big impact in your warranty coverage. Only certified contractors can offer the manufacturers best warranties.

Here’s Why It’s A Plus Exterior Shingle of choice

Since 1938, Owens Corning has had a history of innovation. We invented Fiberglas® fibers which helped transform many markets such as automotive, recreational, and building materials—our famous PINK Insulation has been used in millions of homes across the country. We held our first fiberglass shingle patent in 1965, and helped convert the old organic shingle marketplace throughout the 1980’s. Today, the fiber glass and asphalt composition of roofing shingles plays a crucial role in the durability and performance of all asphalt shingles.

    • Raw Materials

      Adding to our glass fiber expertise, we utilize our Owens Corning Trumbull® brand asphalt, the largest supplier of weathering-grand asphalt in the industry, in the production of all Owens Corning Roofing shingles.

    • Innovation & Technology

      Our focus on applying building science led to the development of patented SureNail®Technology , a breakthrough in shingle design that features a tough, woven reinforcing fabric in the nailing area that helps provide blow-through resistance and outstanding adhesion to the other shingles.

    • Beauty

      Owens Corning roofing products combine consistent quality with long-lasting beauty. Our TruDefinition® color platform gives shingles a specially formulated color and contrast level, which provides rich, deep dimension and great curb appeal.
