Replacing a Wood Shingle Roof
Please take a moment to read about the process we take to replace a wood shingle roof.

Tear Off Tear Off
  • Removing the old roof is beneficial in more ways than one.
  • Getting the extra weight removed helps prevent sagging rafters and decking.
  • Reselling the home is tougher to do with an overlay.
  • More and more insurance companies will not insure composition shingles overlaying wood shingles.
  • And it will look and lay much better over a smooth deck.

Decking Installation Decking Installation
  • Two of the most common types of sheathing are used.
  • 7/16" APA OSB is one method.
  • ½" APA CD plywood is another.
  • Each has their advantages.
  • Spacing the sheathing is important due to the expansion of these products.
  • No spacing between each sheet can lead to buckled decking.

Felt Felt
  • Under-layment is asphalt-impregnated paper that is used as a moisture barrier between the roof deck and shingle.
  • The felt comes in two different weights. 15 and 30 lb.
  • Either is an acceptable method of providing a dry moisture free deck.

Shingle Installation Shingle Installation
  • There are many different types.
  • 20 yr. 3 tab, 25, 30, & 40 yr. laminate composition shingles are just a few of the most popular methods of roofing replacement.
  • Among others are fiber cement, slate, and wood shingle to name just a few.
  • There are several different brands, Elk, GAF, Tamko, Owens Corning, and Certainteed are some of the more popular products.
  • We would be happy to install whichever brand you choose.
