Project: Repair a Tile Roof
Roofers in Stockton Ca. I am very pleased with the entire process with Ron; the estimate was done without me having to be home and was done quickly and courteously. Once I made my decision to have Certified Roof perform the roof repairs, the work was scheduled quickly & without any headaches. Ron showed up on time, went to work quickly and efficiently and completed the repairs identified on the estimate and even made a few extra corrective fixes for no additional charge. Clean-up was complete and non-disturbing to myself or my neighbors. I would highly recommend Certified Roof & Inspection to anyone needing roofers in Stockton, Ca. – they are top notch professional roofers.
On tile roofs, flashings are definitely the weak link. Tile roof valleys are notorious for leaking and the primary cause is debris accumulation under the roof tiles. These tile roof valleys do not look that bad from the surface.
But once the tiles are removed the real problem is exposed. Debris accumulates under the roof tiles, clogging the drainage area on the roof valley flashing underneath and forces water to go over the edge of the flashing and becomes a roof leak.
One exposed, the valley flashing can be replaced or cleaned and reshaped then the roof tiles replaced and it will fix the problem for 6 to 10 years depending on how good of a job was done on the roofing work.
This Stockton family contacted Certified Roof & Inspection at www.roofcertified.com to order a new shingle roof and new steel rain gutters with soldered drains and down spouts. Of course we were happy to provide roofing services for them and they were very pleased with the completed roofing work.
On day 1 we removed the existing roofing shingles and inspected the existing sub sheathing and rafters for dry rot or other defects that may effect the integrity of the new roof. Once any defective wood has been replaced, we install a synthetic roofing underlayment. The new GAF Tigerpaw is “A premium, UV-stabilized polypropylene underlayment that provides a critical extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck.”
Once the underlayment is down we proceed with the shingle installation.
We find that now-days it always makes good sense to upgrade the attic ventilation and use Cool Roof Shingles, which we now do on every new roofing job.
When you are looking for roofers in Stockton, Ca. first and foremost, we strongly suggest checking customer reviews.
Once you have done that….call Certified Roof & Inspection at 800 – 409 – 4910 and your’e all set.
