Cedar Roof Replacement in Darien, CT
When Burr Roofing, Siding & Windows first arrived at this home in Darien, we quickly realized that the existing roof was in a state of disrepair, with shingles beginning to deteriorate badly. This puts the roof in jeopardy of leaks, particularly in a heavy snow and ice winter season. Fortunately, we found that the existing rafters and roof deck were very sound and able to accept new roofing without a problem.
To ensure this home’s protection for years to come, we installed a new cedar roof using superior fasteners and nailing techniques compared to those used previously. The homeowners decided on 18″ Certi-Label Cedar Perfection Shingles at a 5.5″ exposure. In addition, we installed 8″ copper under capping on all hip and ridge sections. To finish the job we added copper flashings around the preexisting skylight. We loved making these Life Improving Home Improvements!
