Featured Project: Shingle Roofing, Chimney Leak & Siding Repairs, Newark DE

Today we’d like to show off one of our roofing repair projects we did last fall in the town of Newark, Delaware. Chimney flashings have completely deteriorated and multiple leaks developed prompting the homeowner to seek a local roofing contractor to handle repairs.  This was a full service repair job that involved roofing & siding restoration.

All Roofing Solutions has been helping Delaware homeowners transform their homes from old to new for nearly 20 years!

Shingle Roofing, Chimney Leak & Siding Repairs Project in Newark, DE 19713

Since the roof was basically sound with only few weak spots, we decided to make permanent repairs instead of replacing the entire roofing system. The project involved:

  • Full roofing inspection, including checking for damage in the roofing material directly above where the leaks were coming in and inspecting the flashing that protects joints between roofing and chimneys/walls.
  • Replacement of damaged shingles.
  • Removal and replacement of the damaged or deteriorated caulking around a chimney and installation of new metal flashing to replace old materials that have rusted through and/or came loose.
  • Inspection and repairs to siding damaged by heavy winds/low-hanging trees.

If you need an experienced Newark DE roofing contractor ready to handle all types of roofing repairs, call (302) 740-7727. We’ll be happy to assist your with your re-roofing, new installation or roof leak repair needs.

Roofing Repairs: How to Replace Damaged Roof Shingles

With constant exposure to the elements, roof shingles have to bear a heavy burden over their lifetime. Eventually, it’s inevitable that they will wear down.

If you have damaged roof shingles, it’s essential that you repair the problem promptly. Otherwise, you could end up with a leaky roof and, potentially, serious structural damage to your home’s roof, attic and frame.

The good news is that repairing asphalt shingle roof is usually not difficult. With a few basic tools and some replacement shingles, you can fix minor roof damage in just a couple of hours. The important thing is to know how, so you can avoid common repair mistakes made by homeowners.

How to Replace Damaged Roof Shingles in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Prepare the area in need of repairs. The first thing you need to do is locate each of the damaged shingles. Then, loosen the adhesive grip of the shingles located two rows above the shingles you’re going to replace. Lift the corners of the loosened shingles to a 60-degree angle and use a crowbar to draw out the exposed nails.
  2. Move towards the damaged shingles. Repeat the previous step on the first row of shingles above the area you’re repairing.
  3. Remove the damaged shingles. Use the same process to loosen the shingles you’re actually going to replace, but instead of just loosening the adhesive, lifting the tabs and removing the nails, take the damaged shingle out of its position.
  4. Place your replacement shingles. Put a new shingle in place of the damaged shingles you’ve removed and nail it into place. Once it’s secure, nail the two upper rows of loosened shingles back into place, as well.
  5. Leave it like you found it. Your final step will be to reapply adhesive to the tabs of the loosened rows of shingles and paste them back to the roof. Once the adhesive sets, your roof will be good as new!

Top Flat Roofing Materials: EPDM Rubber Roofs

EPDM is an acronym for “ethylene propylene diene monomer,” an exceptionally durable type of synthetic rubber compound used mostly in flat roofing since 1960s,. It is primarily made of reclaimed materials, including tires, slate dust, and sawdust.

Top Flat Roofing Materials: EPDM Rubber Roofs

Roofing is EPDM’s most popular application, as it is very inexpensive while offering excellent performance characteristics.

Since it doesn’t need to leverage gravity the way asphalt shingles to, EPDM rubber roofing is particularly well-suited to flat roofs and roofs with low slopes. Indeed, it is the best flat roofing solution in commercial roofing.

Advantages of EPDM Rubber Roofs

Made of recycled and reclaimed raw materials, environmental friendliness is one of EPDM’s clearest advantages. This is just one of many benefits. Others include:

  • Affordability. EPDM rubber is one of the least expensive roofing materials on the market.
  • Energy efficiency improvements. Since it forms an insulation barrier, EPDM rubber helps prevent heat transfer, keeping your home cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter.
  • Durability. Resistant to wind, hail, fire and ozone damage, EPDM roofs are designed to last between 25 and 30 years.
  • Ease of maintenance. In addition to being a low-maintenance material, EPDM rubber is very easy and inexpensive to repair.
  • Lightweight design. EPDM rubber roofing is very lightweight compared to other options on the market. It puts far less stress on your roof than most alternative materials.

EPDM Rubber Roof Installation Tips

EPDM roofing can be installed in one of three ways: it can be attached mechanically, installed fully adhered, or ballasted together. The EPDM roofing membranes are sealed off with specially formulated tape adhesives or liquid bonding agents.

Since EPDM rubber roofing is sold in large sheets that reach up to 50 feet in length, it is far easier to install than many other roofing materials. However, it is important to note that most manufacturers recommend installing EPDM rubber roofing over top of OSB sterling board or clean plywood. Its adhesives work best when paired with these roof decking  materials. Thus, you might need to add a new roof deck layer if your current decking isn’t made from one of these compounds.

From there, you’ll need to prep the surface by removing all traces of existing shingles and making sure the roof deck is clean and uniformly flat. Then, simply apply the adhesive and unroll the EPDM rubber roofing material. You’ll enjoy best results if you supplement the adhesive with some click-together roof trims.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to hire a professional to install your new EPDM roof. Professional installation will extend your new roof’s lifespan, and it also ensures you’ll get the best possible performance from your new roof.
