This single family two story home was in rough shape before we arrived. The updates to this home were extensive, as there were 4 layers of roofing material including wood shake and a 4 foot brick chimney to remove. Prepping of the roofing surface consisted of installing new 7/16" OSB sheeting, Ice and Water Shield to the bottom 3 feet and up all walls and 30lb. felt paper underlayment to remainder of roofing surface. New step and wall flashing, galvanized valley metal, soil pipe boots, ridge vent at peak of roof for venting, aluminum gutter apron on the bottom edge and aluminum drip edge applied to the side edge. 30 year Architectual shingles were applied to the surface to finish.
