Shingle Roof Replacement & Design

Because everyone’s home and needs are different, build the roof system that is right for you, customized with exclusive features to fit your home for enhanced performance.

Process


Shingles are esthetically pleasing, economical, long lasting and have a high wind resistance. They are in a variety of colors and styles. They have the best fire rating, low cost and low maintenance. Because we are one of the few Select Shingle Certified Contractors in the nation, we offer manufacturer-backed complete system warranty including our workmanship for a full 25 years.

Steps

1. Tear off and haul away the roof system, including plumber’s flashings and vents. Remove or hammer nails flush with sheeting/roof deck.
2. Inspect entire roof area for dry rot damage in roof deck and replace with new.
3. Inspect entire edge perimeter for dry rot in fascia boards and barge rafters and replace with new.
4.

(a)Solid Sheeting 1) Reanchor any roof deck nails that have popped up; 2) Reanchor per American Plywood Association specifications for shear strength; 3) Reanchor per American Plywood Association specification for shear strength with ring shank nails in high wind areas (Eastman Roofing & Waterproofing recommends following the American Plywood Association guidelines. If you are in a windy area, we recommend ring shank nails).

What to do with the Existing Roof – Roof over or Remove?

Recover

Recover

Re-cover/Overlay: If you have one wood shingle, or a composition shingle roof, the manufacturers allow installation of a new roof on top of the existing roof. However, the manufacturer’s warranty is greatly reduced. They will not allow an extended warranty on an overlay. The quality and performance of the new overlay roof is lacking. The overlay can cause rapid wear of the primary roof system as the overlay traps moisture and ‘bakes’ the original roof.

Space Sheeting

Space Sheeting

Removal/Tear Off: Removal of the existing roof to the roof deck is the best way to install a new roof. Therefore, manufacturers give better warranties and with proper assemblies, offer long term warranties. Space sheeting needs to have plywood installed if asphalt shingles are to be installed.

When Roofing Over Existing Shingles

CertainTeed Shingle Applicator’s Manual (Chapter 4) Page 36 & 37

Inspecting The Roof

A thorough inspection of the roof to determine whether the roofing must be removed before applying new roofing should include the following:

  1. Check the condition of the rafters and sheathing in the space under the roof. If the sheathing is sagging between the rafters, the roofing must be removed and the conditions repaired before new roofing is applied.
  2. Check for evidence of leakage into the area under the roof, such as patches of dry rot or fungus, or the presence of carpenter ants. If signs of rotting or moisture are widespread it is best to remove the  roofing and repair any damage before re-roofing.
  3. Check the condition of the shingle roofing itself. Replace old roofing if it is severely deteriorated or damaged to the extent that the new roofing applied to it would have its appearance or performance negatively affected. However, there are many cases where new shingles can be successfully applied over old shingles.
  4. If the old roof consists of architectural, lock-type, dutch lap or wood shingles other than sawn square-butt styles, remove the existing roofing, repair, decking and/or install new decking.
  5. Check whether there is already a second roofing layer on the deck. Building codes in some localities do not permit a third layer of roofing and, in any case, it is better to remove the two layers of roofing rather than apply a third layer. Possible problems associated with a third layer include too much stress of the structure, difficulty in fastening through several layers, not enough room under some chimney and wall flashings, and reduced shingle life.

Roof-over Installations may be considered when:

  1. No more than 1 layer of shingles (not including a layer of sawn, square butt wood shingles if local codes approve this as a substitute roof deck) are in place on the existing roof.
  2. After careful inspection, the roof deck is found to be strong and to provide a good nailing base.
  3. The combined weight of the first and second layers of shingles will not exceed the rated carrying capacity of the deck.
  4. The contractor is certain all roof system components, especially flashing and valleys, can be properly repaired or adapted to the roof-over installation.
  5. Manufacturer’s instructions do no prohibit roof-over installation.
  6. The cost to dispose of old roofing materials would be prohibitive.
    1. NOTE: Concern is growing regarding the disposal of old shingle and roofing materials in landfills. Some landfills prohibit or restrict such disposal. Others charge a premium. Research has been underway for some time to develop recycling methods. Some progress has been made in the process of turning roof waste into a component for road construction.  However, the profitability of recycling is yet to be proven. Some believe that roof-over is a desirable approach with the hope that one day an economically viable recycling method will be found that solves the problem. In the meantime, they believe old roofing is best stored on the roof.
  7. Another argument in favor of roof-over is based on the belief that the first layer is additional insurance against leaks.
  8. The homeowner enjoys a clear price advantage by avoiding the added cost of tearing off.

NOTE: The Integrity Roof System requires tear-off.

When Roofing Over Existing Shingles

If old roofing will not be torn off, check local building codes for the maximum number of roofing layers allowed (usually two, sometimes three) and maximum weight per unit area. Check the underlying deck to be sure it is sound and will provide good anchorage for nails. Here are the requirements for specific types of shingles:

  • Shingles weighing more than 350 lbs/square: If the old roof consists of two or more layers of standard-weight shingles or one layer of heavyweight shingles, it is required to tear off existing roofing, repair decking and/or install new decking.
  • Other asphalt roofing shingles (except lock-type or dutch lap): Make the old roofing surface as smooth as possible by replacing missing shingles and splitting, nailing flat and securing all buckles, raised tabs, and curled shingles. It is recommended to cut old shingles back flush to the rakes and eaves. Another recommendation is to apply corrosion-resistant drip edge along the rakes and eaves to cover the edges of the old shingles. Use no underlayment over the old roof, and apply roofing in accordance with product application instructions.
  • Square-butt, sawn-wood shingles: Apply beveled wood strips to all courses to obtain and even base.
  • Lock-type, dutch lap or wood shingles (other than sawn square-butt style): Remove the existing roofing, and follow tear-off instructions.

Solid Sheeting Space Sheeting
Solid Sheeting Space Sheeting

If you have a solid roof deck that is plywood, installed properly, it is ready for the new roof. If you have boards (1 x 6, 1 x 8, 1 x 10, 1 x 12), the manufacturer’s specification is 1/8” maximum between boards. Some cities allow up to 1” maximum between boards. Usually the boards are not ‘dry’ when they were installed. When the moisture dries out of the wood, the wood shrinks. New OSB or plywood can be installed on top of the existing solid sheeting. Space sheeting is usually installed for a wood shingle, shake, and some tile roofs. Space or skip sheeting is 50% coverage of the rafters, the plane of the roof/board, space, board, space. A composition asphalt shingle roof has to have a solid deck. Therefore, the space between the boards has to be filled in or covered over with Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood.

"Oriented Strand Board"Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is an engineered wood product formed by layering strands of wood in specific orientations, compressed and bonded together. It is more uniform and cheaper than plywood.

APA OSB Product Data

"Oriented Strand Board with Radiant Barrier"OSB with ‘Radiant Barrier’ reflects up to 97% of the sun’s radiant heat and keeps it from being absorbed into the attic of your home. An aluminum foil/craft paper laminate is attached to the bottom side of the OSB.

Deck Fastening

Fastening the deck on the roof is required by state and city codes as well as manufacturing requirements such as from the American Plywood Association.

OSB or plywood is applied:
"Protruding nail heads"a) Inspect the entire roof deck before installing new shingles. Re-nail protruding roof nails and clean the roof deck to allow for a smooth surface for the installation of the new shingles.  If existing nails are not flush with the roof deck, it can puncture the roof above.
"Refasten the decking"b) strictly for backing with the edge of the plywood placed anywhere on top of the existing sheeting and fastened to the existing sheeting;
"Refasten the decking"c) nailed directly over rafters below the existing sheeting;
d) nailed directly over rafters below existing sheeting, nailed per American Plywood Association guidelines to give the roof structure sheer strength. This is an added plus for earthquake reinforcement.
Eastman Roofing & Waterproofing recommends following the American Plywood Association guidelines. If you are in a windy area, we recommend ring shank nails.

  2. Durable & Strong: Due to proprietary formulation of Phoenix Alliance products, they will withstand hail, freeze, thaw and extreme heat.
  3.  Superior Lifetime Warranty: Phoenix Alliance products are backed by a Fully Transferable 50 year product warranty. Unmatched by any other accessories company.
  4.  Aesthetic Appeal: Phoenix Alliance products make all those unsightly vents and flashings completely blend in and additionally complement any roof or color. California Stone Coating, Inc. can create Phoenix Alliance products in custom colors and flashings, such as crickets and saddles.
  5.  Green Technology: Phoenix Alliance products are stone-coated with the latest patented proprietary coating formula technology and is rated as SUPER GREEN by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Wall Flashing

When properly installed, metal flashings can help accommodate roof, chimney, wall, or structural movements due to settling, expansion, and contraction.  Roof flashing works like shingles.  It overlaps and sheds water.  Flashing is always constructed in a system to work with the effect of gravity.

Reuse Existing Flashings: If the same type of roof is being installed, the existing flashings can be reused if they are in ‘like-new’ condition. If the existing flashings are not correct for the new (different type of) roof, the flashings have to be changed. If they are rusted or damaged, one of the following choices has to be made:

New Exterior Flashings: The new flashing for the walls, cricket, hog valleys and valleys is on the outside of the siding, sealed with elastomerics and polyester fabric, or the use of PVC as a counterflashing with a termination bar or the wall can be notched to fit a metal counterflashing. This can work well if the area is semi-protected and is acceptable to the city where the work is being done.

New Concealed Flashings: In most cases this is the best method, and accepted by all cities.
1. Cut and remove existing siding material from wall.
2. Remove existing flashings, if needed, to allow for installation of new flashings.
3. Install new flashings and fasten.
4. Install new siding material or repair siding where applicable (owner to ‘touch up’ or paint siding).

Ventilation

All insulated attic spaces shall be ventilated with openings to the exterior of not less than 1 sq. ft. of ventilation for every 150 sq. ft. of attic floor space. This must be balanced equally between the eave and the ridge of your home. This is the current code. Please check out the link why you need ventilation below.

Mesh Ridge Vent: These vents have three main flaws. First, they are uneven and hard to install correctly. Second, the mesh clogs with dust particles, preventing air flow after just a few years of service. Third, they have no external baffle which creates positive pressure in your attic, even with a slight breeze. They are prone to failure in strong winds.

 

 

Baffled Ridge Vent: Baffled ridge vent is a good balance between look and function. The external baffle creates a negative pressure zone because of the Bernuli effect. They have an attractive appearance, and have been tested for hurricane force winds, with no leaks. They actually pull air out of the attic with wind. These types of vents are covered with shingles and have no exposed fasteners.

Eyebrow or O’Hagin vents: These types of vents are the most common ones used in our area. They work through thermal buoyancy: warm air rises. They are not as efficient as Ridge Vent or an attic fan. It takes a lot of these vents to meet code and the manufacturer’s ventilation requirements.

 

Solar Powered Vent: Go green by upgrading to Solar Powered attic fans. A solution to provide energy savings, wind resistance and tax credit, this may be a viable option for you depending upon ventilation calculations and your attic configuration.

It is estimated that 90% of homes in North America have inadequate attic ventilation. Why? The code and manufacturers have changed their minimum requirements for attic ventilation. Attic ventilation can impact the longevity of the entire home!

In the summer, an improperly ventilated attic can cause heat to build in excess of 160 degrees. This superheated air eventually penetrates the ceiling insulation into the living area below.

Other Attic Vents:  Air Vent makes many different types of attic vents.

 

Damage that can result includes:

  • “Fried shingles”, which results in premature aging of your roof system
  • Wood framing warping, cracking or breaking down
  • Damage to siding, exterior or to exterior siding, interior paint, and wallpaper
  • Damage to insulation
  • Higher energy costs to heat and cool the home

A properly ventilated attic can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving superheated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.

In the winter, various household appliances, bathtubs, showers, and cooking vapors can contribute to excess moisture build-up called vapor drive. Improperly ventilated attics will allow this moisture to collect and cling to the underside of the roof deck. There, it will condense and fall, soaking the attic insulation, causing it to compress and clog, reducing its efficiency.

Additional Structural damage can include:

  • Roof deck warping and rotting the wood frame
  • mildew growth
  • buckling of shingles and felt

Proper Attic Ventilation: Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic (see illustration at right), 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).

The current code requires a minimum of at least one square foot of attic ventilation (both intake and exhaust) for every 150 square feet of attic space. Shingle manufacturers require proper ventilation or they will not warranty their shingles or give a very poor warranty because they know the shingles can superheat and will not last their intended life.

For example, if your attic is 900 square feet, you need a total of 6 square feet of ventilation. This amount is generally divided equally between intake and exhaust ventilation (i.e. 3 feet of each), to insure proper air flow through the attic.

Insulation

It is customary to re-insulate your attic during the roof process. Doing so will save a minimum of 20% off of your cooling and heating bills and make it more comfortable. Homes built before 2007 were required to only install R-19. The new code is R-30, though they are leaning to changing this to R-34. Typical investment payback is less than 3 years. Insulated areas do not include non-conditioned spaces.

Conductive Heat:The current minimum standard for our area for attic insulation is R-30, 7 ½”. Some homes have no insulation, which would require the entire R-30 to meet the minimum standard. If your attic insulation is 3 ½”, you have R-12 and would need to add R-19 to meet the minimum requirement. If you have 5 ½” of attic insulation, you have R-19 and need to add R-12 to meet the minimum requirement.

In the winter, if the outside temperature reaches 30 degrees, and you are trying to keep your home at 70 degrees, the temperature difference is 40 degrees (70 – 30), you would need R-19 at a minimum. In the summer, your attic can reach a temperature of 140 degrees. If you are trying to keep the home at 70 degrees, that is a difference of 70 degrees (140 – 70) and you’d need a minimum of R-30 insulation.

Radiant Heat: If you do not have a radiant barrier, then the top 1 inch of your insulation can be 10 degrees – 20 degrees hotter than the air in your attic. The heat is absorbed by the insulation and eventually enters your home. If a radiant barrier is installed on the back of your rafters, 97% of the radiant heat reflects back out and never reaches your insulation.

.
.

Walls/Floors: These areas, if not insulated, allow the transfer of heat and cold.

Insulation Check Sheet:

You might be surprised how many people don’t know they’re sending money through their roof.

A standard single family home going from an existing R-12 to R-30 will see a minimum reduction of 20% on their cooling and heating bill. If your power bill averages $100 a month, about half of that is for cooling and heating, typically. A 20% savings would equate to a $20 reduction on your bill each month, per $100 of every cost.

About 78% of homeowners have not added any insulation to their attic; in part because they believe their home already has enough.

However, 80% of homes built before 1980 are not insulated to correct standards. Even newer homes may not be as energy-efficient as you think. Current codes are only the minimum insulation requirements for new construction – not the amount recommended to optimize energy efficiency.

Overall, about 60 million homes built before 1980 are under-insulated, costing Americans $8.2 billion each year. Simply insulating existing homes to current standards would save 800 trillion BTUs (that’s 76 supertankers of oil) each year.

Higher Resale Value: An energy-efficient home appeals to buyer’s financial and environmental interests.

Research shows that 71% of homebuyers want a home that reduces their overall impact on the environment. And 96% of homebuyers consider energy efficiency when buying a new home.

A Positive Impact on the Environment: CertainTeed insulation products save many times the energy used to make it in the first year alone. And they continue to help conserve energy year after year without consuming any additional resources.

The products CertainTeed sells each year are responsible for the prevention of more than 1 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions. This equals the emissions of 200 million passenger cars or the use of 2 billion barrels of oil.

Responsible Use of Resources: Many CertainTeed products are made with renewable resources, recycled materials or the byproducts of other production processes. CertainTeed Fiberglas insulation is made of plentiful sand and recycled glass.

Loose fill insulation, also called “blown-in” insulation, is made of virgin white fiber glass insulation. It is used in new construction and in existing homes, typically in hard-to-reach areas.

  • It does not require the addition of fire-retardant chemicals that can promote corrosion of pipes or wires.

Gutters

Gutters and downspouts are necessary to channel water away from the foundation of the building to prevent damage. Factors that must be considered in the design of the roof drainage system are:  the area to be drained, size of the gutters, downspouts and outlets, the slope of the roof, type of building, and its appearance.  The design capacity for the roof drainage system depends on the quantity of water to be handled.  The quantity of water in turn depends on the roof area, roof slope, and rainfall intensity.  Rainfall intensity is usually stated in inches per hour for a 5 minute duration based on U.S. Weather Bureau records.

We use pre-painted, steel or aluminum seamless gutters that are designed and assembled onsite to custom fit your roof. We also use paintable bonderized gutters and copper gutters for different styles and options.
