Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows Case Studies: Roof Replacement in Southport, CT

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018 by Tracy Gelb


When Burr arrived at this home in Southport, CT for an estimate there were some obvious issues with the roof. Although the roof deck appeared to be sound, it was not as vented as it could have been, leaving it vulnerable to ice damn and the buildup of heat and moisture in the attic space. Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows suggested adding a ridge vent for more ventilation. The existing asphalt roofing shingles were 3-tab strip shingles, installed without the proper underlayment, going against building code requirements. The lack of underlayment paired with a severe winter and snow build up led to multiple leaks. Burr suggested removing the entire roof and installing proper flashings, underlayment, and ice barriers, along with brand new asphalt shingles. 




To address the issue Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows quickly got to work installing XT25 shingles in Black Pepper. The new shingles carry a superior warranty and have an algae-resistance built in, making them the perfect product for this beautiful home. Now, these homeowners don't have to worry about their home during long and cold winters.
