STEP 1: Deck Preparation
Our crews ensure that all loose decking boards are nailed down properly, all old nails are refastened and all water-damaged and warped decking is replaced to ensure the decking is sufficient to hold nails. We will replace at no charge up to (3) sheets of decking. Don’t hire a roofing company who isn’t willing to strip down to decking. We want to ensure you get a safe and proper installation.
STEP 2: Ice & Water Shield In Valleys
Quality roof deck protection prevents wind-driven rain (or water from other sources) from infiltrating under your shingles and causing damage to your roof or the inside of your home. Most of major water leaks in homes come from your valleys. We install GAF Weather Watch which is rubberized mat that give all your valleys additional protection from snow and rain. This provides an extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck.
STEP 3: Starter Strip
Using GAF Pro-Start starter strip helps lock your shingles in place to help prevent wind-blown rain and potential leaks. With no cutting of the starter strip there will be a visibly straighter roof edge. Using GAF Pro-Start in conjunction with proper shingle installation also allows for an increase in wind rating.
STEP 4: Shingle
We exclusively install shingles from GAF. GAF offers a multitude of options to accomadate your home. GAF is the largest manufacturer of residential roofing material in North America. We prefer the always dependable performance that only a GAF roof can offer because we always have your future in mind.
Nailing errors, such as under-driven or angled nails, can cause future problems with your shingles — everything from premature failure and blistering to blow-offs. Outdoor Creations uses 6 nails per shingle compared to the industry standard of 4 to properly secure shingles and to increase wind ratings from 90mph to 130mph.
STEP 5: Ventilation
We know the regulations and requirements set in place to allow your roof to vent properly. Too many times we come across homes that aren’t ventilated correctly and need to be corrected. At Outdoor Creations we always ensure your roof is functioning in full which includes adding additional vents.
As an eco-alternative, we offer solar powered vents that allow your summers to stay cooler, and your winters to stay warmer.
STEP 6: Ridge Shingle
We use GAF Z-Ridge Distinctive Cap Shingles to complete GAF Lifetime Roofing System. This will accentuate the natural beauty of your newly installed architectural shingle roof. Also offers reliable protection at the highest-stress areas of your roof (the hips and ridges)
