Metal valley flashings, soil pipe flashings made for the type of soil pipes you have, Wisconsin-style chimney flashings and 6 feet of ice and water along eves are just a few things that set us apart. We'll explain what the right products are to use because if you're investing in a 30 year or 50 year roof, you want your flashings to last just as long.
Ventilation Done Right
As a ventilation certified contractor, we walk around your house with you and give you the information every customer deserves that will maximize the life of your new roof.
Our solutions-based approach extends the life of your roof while minimizing utility bill costs.
We analyze each roof develop a plan to prevent problems from occurring. We calculate the proper amount of exhaust ventilation and offer you options. We'll identify where or if you have intake ventilation as both are critical to a long-lasting roof. Different types of roofs benefit from different types of ventilation.
Embrace the Science
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 break it down to a science. Get it just right and your house will be more comfortable, 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 where part of the attic space that has been remodeled for additional living space, such as a 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 assess your home and employ various solutions to optimize ventilation as much as is practical.
We tailor solutions 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 are able to reduce problems from ice dams to protect your home.
Protecting Your Home
In many cases, we tarp off your 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. We've torn off roofs that have as many as 20,000 nails in them! We include cleanup and haul away of all of job-related debris with every project.
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.
