Integrity Roofing System
Integrity Roofing and Painting exceeds the manufacturer’s requirements with each installation in order to protect your roof at the highest level. Our Integrity Roofing System is a component based roof replacement system. Every damaged and integral roof components are replaced. Your roof is more than just shingles and only as strong as the weakest component. The Integrity Roof System involves the following steps:
Confirm the selection and color of shingles. Review any potential upgrades. Make sure to implement change orders before any materials are delivered. Your assigned roof manager will go over safety rules and your housekeeping duties with you before the roofing work begins.
Roofing materials will be delivered and placed in the driveway near the garage unless you have made other arrangements.
PROTECT THE LANDSCAPING AND DECKING
When needed and logistically practical, we will cover landscaping, pools, and decking prior to the removal or the existing roof.
REMOVE OLD SHINGLES AND FELT PAPER
Integrity Roofing and Painting will tear off and haul off old shingles, valley metal, drip edge, and rubber boots.
All roof underlayments should be installed horizontally. The felt underlayment is to go from one gable end to the other gable end, and it is not to be cut short. Along the bottom perimeter the felt paper will be installed over the metal eave. Along the rake edge the felt paper is installed before the metal eave is installed. Water damage can occur if the felt underlayment is not installed properly.
This is a modified bitumen self adhering and self healing product designed to seal critical areas from water penetrations. It actually swells up and reseals itself around nail penetrations. We install it in all of our roof valleys, against exterior wall penetrations.
WINDSTORM STARTER STRIP
(There is no comparison)Your roof is upgraded to a windstorm starter strip at absolutely no cost to you. The standard starter row of shingles is unzipped during high winds and blows off a roof. We do not use the standard 3-tab starter.
HIP AND RIDGE CAP
Enhance the appearance and wind coverage of your new roof with wind storm approved hip and ridge cap.
Integrity Roofing and Painting installs water shield along walls, chimneys and skylights.
PIPE FLASHING/VENT PIPES (RUBBER BOOTS, LEAD JACKS, 3 IN 1)
Integrity Roofing and Painting installs new rubber boots.
We install water shield or metal in the valleys.
SHINGLES/ HAND NAILED ROOF SYSTEM
Integrity Roofing and Painting will install preselected shingles according to manufacturer’s instructions and code requirements. Our preference is to hand nail every asphalt shingle roof system. Nail guns overdrive nails resulting in less wind resistance. (We installed over 150 roofs along the Texas Gulf Coast prior to Hurricane Ike and lost no shingles. Hand nailing is the key to a proven Integrity Roof System!)
ROOF VENTILATION (Ridge vents, soffit vents, turbine vents….)
Proper roof ventilation leads to longevity of shingles, while improper roof ventilation decreases life expectancy. Manufacturers’ warranties are voided if the roof is not properly ventilated. This is the ideal time to upgrade your attic ventilation system. The insurance carrier does not pay for upgrades, so this would be an added expense.Indications that your attic might have a ventilation problem include wet or compressed insulation, rusty nails or rust spots that dripped onto your insulation, blackened or buckled sheathing, mold or mildew inside your attic, curling or cracking shingles.Integrity Roofing and Painting suggests using a combination of intake and exhaust vents for maximum efficiency. Please see airvent.com for more information.
All roof jacks come pre-painted or will be painted to match.
Our roof installers will continue to clean the yard while roof debris is being removed. Integrity Roofing and Painting will deposit debris into our container throughout the entire roof installation. A magnet will be used to pick up nails that are on the ground.
