A lot of homeowners tell me that they want to do their own tear-offs. This project demonstrates how difficult the work can be, especially during the hot summer months when roof temperatures can reach over 120 degrees. Working in this stuff all day is trying. If you are looking for roofers in Coeur d’Alene, look no further!
This roof in Coeur d’Alene had multiple additions put on over the years, and the layers of roofing material and sheeting were inconsistent; decks had anywhere from 2-4 layers, depending on what was done with tear-off and layovers in the past. Laying over is lazy, and it causes an absolute mess for future jobs.
We typically install our Epilay Plystik Plus six feet up all eaves and three feet in all valleys, but this roof pitch is only 3/12, which isn’t very steep. The city of Coeur d’Alene (and almost all building code, for that matter) requires roofers to install ice shield on the ENTIRE home. Here, we are finishing drying in the home with ice shield, and material has been delivered.
All pipe flashings, stem vent flashings and B-vent flashings are replaced with new, then fastened with a leak-proof, gasketed screw.
The New Heights Roofing 5-layer California-style valley: Epilay Plystik Plus ice shield, steel valley metal and three layers of shingle. These overbuilt, sturdy valleys will hold heavy snow weight and resist leaks from melt and rain.
The ‘Heather’ colorway is one of the finest you can choose for your new roof. This is a company favorite, and is available in Highlander NEX, Vista and Legacy, all by Malarkey Roofing Products!
This roof went a long time without proper ventilation, so we installed one of our favorite and newest products, Lomanco LOR9-4 ridge vent. To maximize the uninterrupted circulation of the roofing system, Lomanco makes the best ridge vent available! We love installing it and are confident it will be a well-preforming, lasting product.
We hope you’re enjoying your roofing research – all signs point to hiring the best roofers in Coeur d’Alene, New Heights Roofing!
