Atlanta New Roof Install by Pro Roofing & Siding
We received a call for an Atlanta New Roof System from Jill B., after finding us on Google. We are doing this Atlanta New Roof install today. She chose a GAF Timberline Architectural Shingle – Slate for the style and color of her shingles. This new roofing system comes with a Lifetime Ltd Warranty.
We are making sure that the decking is in good condition and replacing any bad or rotted wood, as necessary. We will install deck protection and Ice & Water Shield at the valleys, chimney, penetrations and wall transitions and step flashing, as necessary. We will also install new neoprene plumbing pipe boots, double booted for maximum protection. Now the roof will then be ready to have the shingles installed including changes to the ventilation system. We will install vented drip edge to balance ventilation system. Jill also needs Pro Roofing & Siding to remove, replace and paint both dormer side panels and trim using matching Hardie Plank panels.
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continual flow of outside air through the attic, protecting the efficiency of the insulation and helping to lower temperatures in the living space. It consists of a balance between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge).
Attics should be properly ventilated to help prevent ice dams in cold northern climates. During the winter, ice and snow on a roof will melt and run down the deck to the cooler eaves. This run-off can re-freeze, creating an ice dam that may force water back up under the shingles and leak into your home — causing hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage to your ceilings and walls. Adequate attic ventilation reduces the amount of initial melting that occurs on your roof, thereby reducing the chance that ice dams will form. Properly ventilated attics work in tandem with attic insulation for energy efficient roofing systems.Serving the Metro Atlanta Area as Georgia’s Most Reliable Exterior Contractor © Pro Roofing & Siding | 100 Hickory Ridge Trail, Woodstock, GA 30188 | 770-777-1733 .
