The roof was showing obvious signs of disrepair, with excessive cracking and curling in many areas, particularly in the front valleys. The rear chimney was damaged due to the lack of proper flashing. The previous owners had attempted to address the chimney problem with tar patching, but the damage spread and a whole new chimney was required. The window trim throughout the house was rotting due to improper installation, allowing water to travel behind the siding and into the walls. This created a potentially dangerous situation as hidden mold and/or mildew could have formed. The experts at Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows suggested an immediate roof replacement and new trim/flashings for all the windows. We ultimately installed Seal King XT25 shingles in Grey Frost and reworked all window casements. Now this house is both safe and beautiful!

There was noticeable amount of nail pops and granular loss throughout the entire roof. Many of the existing shingles had been installed using staples rather than nails, making it extremely easy for them to fall off. There were also ventilation problems in the roof deck. The soffits were blocked by framing and insulation making intake ventilation impossible. we suggested adding a ridge vent to this area to address the problem and get air flowing freely. Thankfully, the structure of the roof deck was able to accept new roofing without a problem. Our team installed a brand new CertainTeed Landmark 30 roof in Atlantic Blue, equipped with the proper underlayment and flashings.
When we first arrived at this home in Stamford, CT we had major concerns about the integrity of the existing roof. There was a low slope area on the rear of the home where the roof deck appeared compromised as a result of rot. There were major concerns regarding the existing ventilation system.

They took our suggestions and chose to install CertainTeed Landmark Pro shingles in Moire Black. We also relpaced the existing gutters and leaders with .032 seamless white aluminum.

The 11 existing casements located at the front of the house were installed poorly as replacement windows by the previous owner. There were an additional five windows throughout the kitchen that also needed replacing. The existing windows were wood casings with wood interior stops. This made it easier to prevent collateral damage to the walls and both interior/exterior casings.
After speaking with the homeowner, it was decided that an insert would be the best option as to avoid disturbing the exterior window casing. Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows soon installed Marvin Integrity windows throughout the front porch and kitchen, replacing the window over the kitchen sink with a bay window.

This chimney repair in Stamford, CT was much more than meets the eye. Mr. & Mrs. M bought their first home two years ago, thrilled about their new start. Unfortunately, they could not predict the headaches that would accompany the move. Approximately three years before they bought the house the chimney cap cracked. Rather than properly fixing the damage, the previous homeowner attempted to simply patch the roof and instead caused further damage. With time, the leak traveled from the top of the chimney, spreading rot throughout the top half of the structure. Eventually, the framing was so soft from rot that the flashing started to separate, and the siding began to move. When the second round of repair was done by another contractor, the copper flashing was restored beautifully. However, this made no real difference because the material was being attached to a soft, rotting wood. In retrospect, something more drastic should have been done to address the issue at this point. When Mr. & Mrs. M had their first inspection, there was some evidence of water damage in the master bedroom located on the same wall as the chimney. Here, it was clear that the previous owner had recently replaced floorboards and retouched paint where the ceiling met the wall. After moving in they noticed more paint abnormalities in the same location, raising further questions. Many years of band-aids led to sleepless nights, as the deferred maintenance ultimately created bigger problems.
After a major rainstorm swept through CT it became obvious that water was leaking into the wall and ceiling, prompting Mr. & Mrs. M to call Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows. When Woody arrived on scene he immediately knew that this was a major repair due to the volume of rot and water damage. Within two weeks our expert team arrived to start the job. Each day, they dug a little deeper into the chimney structure and each day more rot was uncovered. The entire chimney measures at 28 feet tall; when all was said and done our team exposed approximately 21 feet of concerning rot that had to be replaced to restore the chimney’s structural integrity. Throughout the project, there was an open line of communication to ensure that Mr. & Mrs. M were kept in the loop regarding progress and any additional work orders. As first-time homeowners they were inexperienced in the home improvement category; however, Mrs. M described Burr's findings as "justification for her worries". After so much time spent trying to pinpoint the issue, she was so relieved to finally receive thorough answers and appropriate solutions.
Overall, the Burr team was shocked to find the amount of rot present in such a small surface area. Therefore, it is crucial to call a home improvement professional at the first sight of any problems. The key is calling the right professional. Burr Roofing, Siding, & Windows is a smart investment because we do it once and we do it right. Delivering Mr. & Mrs. M their newfound peace of mind was just as rewarding for us as it was for them; Burr’s customers come first!
