Millstream Construction Case Studies: Failing Shingles and Rotted Decking - Roof Replacement in Orange

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016 by Chris Gonsalves

Challenge

We got the call from one of our partners that specializes in solar panel installation, they had just looked at this home in Orange Connecticut and is was perfect for solar panels! Plenty of sun throughout the day and the home owner was looking for a solution to costly electric bills, there was just one issue, the roof was an absolute wreck! Not only were the shingles on the surface failing rapidly, but the plywood decking beneath them was absolutely destroyed from years of exposure to water from the poorly performing shingles. It was almost a dead end for the homeowner, almost.

Solution

We quickly scheduled a time to inspect the roof ourselves the ensure exactly what would need to be done. After a through inspection by one of our HAAG certified professionals, we scheduled the work at a time convenient for the home owner. Once on site we tore off the deteriorated three tab shingles as well as all the plywood decking, after that we installed self sealing Owens Corning WeatherLock G Ice and Water barrier to the entire roof deck. After we had made the roof system water tight, we began installing all new Owens Corning Desert Tan architectural shingles to the home. Now, not only does the home look great, but it also has a roof to last a lifetime and it helps the owner pay her bills!
