ROOFING ACCESSORIES

ATTIC EXHAUST VENTILATION

Stale Air Escapes Through Exhaust Vent (Installed Under Ridge Cap Shingles)

Effective attic ventilation is critical for a long-lasting roof! A properly balanced attic ventilation system will help to:

 

  • Remove excess heat and moisture to protect your roof from premature deterioration

  • Avoid roof rot in your attic or roof deck

  • Minimize peeling and extend the life of exterior and interior paint

  • Limit the growth of harmful mold

  • Safeguard your attic possessions against mildew damage

ROOF DECK PROTECTION

Quality roofing underlayment is critical for helping to prevent wind driven rain from infiltrating under the roof's shingles and potentially damaging the home's structure and interior.

Traditional asphalt felt underlayment can tear easily and absorb moisture, leading to wrinkling that "telegraphs" through the shingles. Competitively priced with typical asphalt felts, High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt:

  • Includes a specially designed surface for enhanced walkability and a cooler working surface (vs typical black felts)

  • Resists tearing on the roof

  • Avoids wrinkling that can "telegraph" through the shingles, detracting from the finished look of the roof

  • Will not absorb moisture, become brittle, or leach oils

LEAK BARRIER

A Quality Leak Barrier Will:​

  • Help prevent water penetration at the most vulnerable areas of your roof (at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, around chimneys, etc)

An "Ice and Water Shield" Mineral-Surfaced Leak Barrier will:

  • Help reduce the risk of costly repairs due to wall and ceiling staining from leaks.

  • Help prevent leaks due to water damming in your gutters, wind-driven rain, and, in the North, damaging ice dams.

STARTER STRIP

Starter Strips are one of the most overlooked parts of a roofing system!

That's because some roofing contractors try to use a cut-up strip shingle as the "starter" course on your roof. Unfortunately, cut-up shingles may not have properly positioned adhesive to ensure adequate wind resistance. A pre-cut eave/rake starter strip is:

  • A cost effective alternative to using cut-up shingles as your starter course.

  • Made with a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive that will tightly lock your shingles in place to help prevent shingle blow off.

  • Easy to use and install, with no cutting on the roof.

RIDGE CAP SHINGLES

Protective Ridge Cap Shingles Will Help:​

  • Protect high-stress areas of your roof
    (the hips and ridges).

  • Provide a high-quality and less labor-intensive alternative to using cut-up strip shingles as your ridge cap.
