Shingle Roof

Your New Shingle Roof

Expect more than simply replacing old shingles with new. A detailed quote from Licitra Roofing ensures your entire roofing system will be evaluated:

  • Drainage, including flashings and barriers to ice dams.

  • If your gutters don’t drain properly, a back-up can be created which will cause a leak. Flashings need to be replaced – poor quality or re-used flashings will allow premature roof failure.

  • Insulation

  • Proper insulation is an important part of the entire roofing system that many contractors ignore. Inadequate insulation can lead to severe ice damage.

  • Ventilation

  • Poor ventilation means there will be heat build up in the attic, leading to cracks and damages in the lumber. Moisture build up in the attic along with mold growth is also a side effect of poor ventilation.

  • Actual roof itself

Though it is less expensive to add a layer of new shingles over the old, you won’t be doing yourself any favors. Once the old shingle is removed, any underlying problems will be noticeable, including compromised wood decking.

A lifetime shingle won’t mean a thing if any part of your roofing system is constructed poorly. What sets Licitra Roofing apart from other contractors is what you don’t see.
