Our roofing division was recently contracted to replace a shingle roof on a beautiful home in Lithia Florida. The home’s current roofing structure served the homeowners well, but having experienced years of Florida’s harsh weather, tropical storms, and hurricanes, came a need for a replacement due to normal wear and tear on the roof. Once approved, our roofing team went to work removing the existing roof covering and underlayment. We re-nailed the decking to local hurricane mitigation code using magnum zinc coil nails, and installed Tamko’s moisture guard underlayment to the entire roof surface. The appropriate 26GA pre-painted drip edge flashing was installed onto the entire roof perimeter along with new 26GA galvalume valley metal in all valleys (a closed valley detail was used), along with 26GA galvalume kitchen and dryer vents, and lead flashing around all of the plumbing stacks.
Once ready for shingles, we then installed a new 130mph architectural asphalt shingle roof system from Tamko, as per manufacturer specifications. With a new roof from First Service and a quality shingle system from Tamko, our customer can rest easy knowing that their home’s new roof will properly protect their residence for years to come.
