The CRS 21 Step Re-Roofing Process
1. Tarps (Driveway)
Placed on driveway under truck to catch debris and nails preventing possible tire puncture.
2. Shrubbery Cover
1st a tarp is placed along tear off area up to the base of shrubbery. A second tarp is attached at eve over shrubbery to allow air flow and protection from falling debris.
3. Stop Boards
Combination of 2 x 4 and 1′ tall strip of plywood to catch all tear off material and act as safety catch for crew along lower edge of roof.
4. 100% Felt Removal
Allows deck to air out and have all wood checked for damage and rot. CRS installs synthetic underlayment that is superior to the industry standard 15 or 30 pound felt paper which will dry rot.
5. Old Nail Removal
Prevents old nails from backing out causing punctures and puckers on new shingles.
6. Galvanized Drip Edge
Drip Edge protects fascia and prevents shingles from drooping.
7. Pre-Cut Starter
Factory cut starter shingles are placed around entire perimeter of house to protect from high winds.
8. Ice & Water Shield
Install in valleys, wrap chimneys, skylights & around water vent pipes. Upgraded GAF Golden Pledge and CertainTeed 5 Star Warranty receives extra Ice & Water Shield in required areas of home in addition to that of our standard installation which is valley’s, chimneys, skylights and around water vent pipes.
9. Pipe Collars & Vent Covers
Always replaced by CRS and set in bed of mastic. The rubber neck on pipe collars dry rots from UV rays. We protect a most probable leak area with an additional Never Leak Rain Collar.
10. 1 – 1/4″ Nails
Industry standard is 1″, CRS want the ultimate in a secure bond between shingle & wood decking.
11. 6 Nails per Shingle
Manufacturers require a minimum of 4 nails per 25 year and architectural shingle. CRS applies 6 nails minimum on architectural shingle installations to insure a 130 mph wind warranty on all roof installations.
12. Ventilation (Intake & Exhaust)
All manufacturers require minimum attic venting to meet FHA standards for the warranty to be valid. CRS guarantees it.
13. Chimney Flashing
The #1 problem area for improper flashing installation. Always grind a 1″ grove into brick, wrap chimney base with Ice and Water Shield and install over sized new step flashing. Then bend the counter flashing metal into the brick joint. We always use copper or baked on enamel HD Aluminum. We never use galvanized metal and spray paint like some.
The frame is wrapped in Weather Watch. All step flashing replaced. This double coverage will insure skylight against leakage.
15. Daily Clean Up
Clean up is maintained all day during job to ensure job site is clean and safe.
16. Roof Clean Up
A magnet picks up all dropped nails on the roof. All trash & equipment removed at end of the job. Roof is now ready for the final wash down and inspection.
17. Gutter Clean Up
All gutters & down spouts are cleaned & washed to ensure proper removal of water when rain comes.
18. Wash Down
The roof is washed down for inspection upon completion to remove the grit from the original shingles. This can be very hard to get out of your carpet and can scratch those beautiful wood floors. Windows, decks, sidewalks, & driveways are washed to remove the dust & dirt from the roof replacement as well.
19. Ground Clean Up
All job site debris is picked up & the grounds are raked as necessary with a magnet sweep in plant beds & grass areas to pick up nails & metal missed by the human eye.
20. 25 Year to Limited Lifetime Material Warranty
CertainTeed, GAF, & Owens Corning all provide material warranties to maximize your investment. Shingles up-graded beyond 25 years enhance the curb appeal and value of your home. Architectural or Designer Shingles are a good option above the traditional three tab shingle.
