We'll give you options that fit your home and your budget. Your most important choices are made before our installers even arrive.

Jim, the ventilation-certified owner of Energy Masters, will walk around your house with you and give you options to maximize the life of your new roof.

Our solutions-based approach to solving roof problems, extending the life of your roof while minimizing utility bill costs.

We analyze each roof develop a plan to prevent problems from occurring.  We will calculate the proper amount of exhaust ventilation and offer you options.  Different types of roofs require different types of ventilation.

Too much exhaust ventilation and you will trap warm, moist air in your attic.  Too little and you won't establish a good draw from the natural process of convection. We've got this broken down to a science.  Get it just right and you can reduce your reliance on your cooling system in the summer and extend the life of your roof.  Less energy usage means more savings for you.

One of the most unusual and challenging jobs we've ever done. With over 30 facets coupled with vaulting curves, this house now has the nicest roof on the block.

Some roofs cannot be ventilated optimally so we've developed work-arounds. Houses with cathedral ceilings and houses with part of the attic space that has been claimed for living space such as cape cod house are notorious for these problems.   Special underlayments can still make them work well.  There are other areas where the only type of intake ventilation they could possibly get has to come from a lower portion of the roof.  We have multiple solutions for multiple problems.

We will tailor a solution to fit your needs.

Protection from Ice Damming

Over the last 20 years we have had extensive freeze and thaw cycles even in the middle of winter.  This causes ice to build up on the gutter and back up into houses.

Through a combined process of ventilation and 2 three foot layers (for a total of 6 feet) of rubberized ice and water membranes, we protect homes from damaging ice dams.

Protecting Your Home

At Energy Masters we tarp off your entire home from the gutters on down during tear off of your old roof.  This is to protect your windows and siding from damage that could be caused by debris falling from your old shingles falling off of your roof.  After we are done, we will use a magnetic nail finder to locate as many nails from your old roof as possible.  Cleanup and haul away of all of job-related debris is standard with all jobs we accept.

One Day Install for Most Roofs

We are able to install most roofs in just one day from start to finish.  Everyone has seen roofing projects in their neighborhood that have dragged on for weeks or even months.  At Energy Masters we take pride in minimizing any impact or inconvenience.


The Energy Masters System

Roofing is one of the most important investments you can make.  It pays to do it right the first time.

Full evaluation and analysis of your roofing needs including an aerial survey to assure proper measurements (no ballpark estimates that result in higher charges after work has already started).

Total tear-off followed by deck assessment to assure we have a proper surface on which to build, and replacement of rotten wood.

Starter strips with adhesive that helps prevent winds of up to 130 MPH tearing off your shingles.

2 layers (6 feet) of ice/water rubberized barrier to prevent ice damming. The same rubberized barrier is also used in all valleys of your roof (where two pieces of roof come together) to reduce the chance for leak through in high water volume areas of your roof.

Your choice of 3 durable, synthetic deck protection systems. We never use only felt paper because quality underlayments can mean the difference between a roof that will last 10 years or a roof that can last 50 years.

Architectural shingles — your choice of a good, a better, or a best shingle. Metal roof options are also available.

Venting: Your choice of active ventilation or passive ventilation. After assessing your home, we may recommend a ridge vent, slant back vents, pod vents, or active ventilation like a solar vent or turbine vent.
