In April of 2020, we were approached by a customer after they searched for a Plainfield CT roofing and siding company. This Plainfield couple has had nothing but negative experiences with CT home contractors in the past. Of course, due to their prior experiences, they struggled to find a Plainfield CT roofing and siding company that they could trust. However, after hearing from our roofing and siding estimator and project manager, they were happy to give us a trial run by replacing their roof. They agreed that because of their prior experiences, they wanted to move slowly and start with one job. We were happy to perform the roof replacement and dormer demolition, particularly because this Plainfield CT home is less than ten minutes from our office!
After some contemplation and debate, the homeowners decided to also demo the dormer on the front side of their home due to various leaking issues. In an effort to avoid further leaking, we demoed the dormer during the roof replacement and framed in the hole that the dormer left. This allowed us to lay new roof sheathing over the rafters and use the proper underlayment materials over the sheathing. Our Plainfield CT roofing and siding company rest assured that the roof would no longer have any leaking spots in the area.
Another problem we found on this roof was the chimney flashing. The prior chimney flashing was installed very poorly was prone to leaking, even though the roof was not replaced long ago. We installed brand new chimney flashing to ensure this was not an issue. Lastly, we found that the porch roof was leaking into the home near the upstairs window. It was determined that this was due to improper flashing and underlayment beneath the siding. Our project manager decided that it would be best to rip off some of the old siding to lay new Ice and Water underlayment underneath the siding. As a Plainfield CT roofing and siding company, we made sure to keep track of these problem areas and address them accordingly.
After taking note of and ensuring to take care of those problem areas, we began with a typical roof replacement as we would on any job as a Plainfield CT roofing and siding company. We installed all of our roof sheathing, underlayment materials, drip edge, and roofing shingles to code to complete the new roof system in Plainfield. The homeowners selected a new Harbor Blue Roofing System by Owens Corning, which blended excellently with the new vinyl siding they hoped to install.
The homeowners chose to wait to complete the siding portion of the job until the fall. After a couple of months passed, they selected a Mastic White Siding material to look similar to their current siding but have a major upgrade in the material protecting their home. Our Plainfield CT roofing and siding company got to work and completed the siding job to our Guaranteed Roofing standards. We were happy to work with the homeowners for their multi-faceted job and they left completely satisfied in our company and The Guaranteed Roofing System of our Plainfield CT roofing and siding company.
