Cape Coral Shingle Roof Replacement By First Service

Our office was recently contacted by a Cape Coral resident in need of a roof replacement. Once inspected it was determined that due to normal wear and aging, that a new shingle roof would need to be completed in order to properly repair the existing roofing structure.

We began by removing the existing layers of shingles, underlayment, fasteners, and roofing material. Once removed, our roofing team inspected the condition of the decking below, along with the flashing and facia board. All damaged materials were discarded and replaced accordingly. The existing decking was re-nailed to meet the current Florida building code and GAF’s Weather Watch leak barrier peel & stick was installed. Following the leak barrier, we installed a layer of APOC peel & stick underlayment along with the appropriate galvalume valley metal in all of the roof’s valleys.

For this roof, our team installed GAF Pro-Start shingles at all eave/rake locations, and GAF’s Timberline HDZ shingles throughout the roof. These state of the art asphalt shingles are weather and wind rated up to 130mph winds! As a GAF Master Elite factory certified contractor, our company proudly installs GAF roofing products for our amazing customers, ensuring peace of mind with their unbeatable product warranties!

With the project now complete, our customer can rest easy knowing that their new roof installed by First Service is backed by a 2 year workmanship warranty and a 50 year non prorated warranty for all GAF materials installed on the roof!
