Why Use Roof Rescue?


The Signature Roof Rescue Service

Roof Rescue Inc.’s Signature Roofs emphasize multifaceted preparations prior to the application of the selected roof covering:

Why Use Roof Rescue?

 

1. We remove and dispose of the existing roof, right down to the roof deck. Waste materials are loaded directly into rolling stock, rather than drop boxes to minimize property damage. The materials are transported to approved receiving facilities that emphasize recycling.


2. We inspect the roof deck, soffit, fascia, penetrations, flashing and junctions for integrity and develop a plan to correct any deficiencies.

3. We correct deficiencies, which may include replacement of deteriorated wood decking, soffit, fascia, trusses, and other substrata that could affect fastener and wind uplift strength. Additionally, we inspect flashing at skylights, roof-to-wall connections, roof-to-roof connections, and roof-to-appliance connections for deficiencies and correct them.

4. We renail the wood roof deck with 8d ring shank nails (no staples are utilized) in a pattern prescribed by state and local codes. For non-wood roof decks, fasteners will be to manufacturers’ specifications or construction codes, whichever is greater.

5. We install all-new plumbing vent boots and new air vent caps, replace roof ventilation, and install pitch pans around electric service poles as well as new valley metal and perimeter eve drip metal.

6. We reinforce all roof penetrations and valleys and seal the drip edge.

7. We install the base underlayment over the entire roof field. A base underlayment can otherwise be known as tar paper, felt, or a secondary water-barrier. The type of underlayment used is to code and is dictated by the roof slope. A secondary water barrier remains an upgrade option by the roof owner.

8. We install the customer-selected final overlayment. The final overlayment may be Shingle, Concrete Tile, Clay Tile, Metal Panels, Metal Tile, Torch or Mop-Grade Modified Bitumen or another similar flat-roof applied product. All final overlayments will be installed to the manufacturers’ specifications or to state and local codes, whichever is greater.

9. We consider the specifics of your roofing needs during installation. Roof Rescue Inc. has the experience and prerequisite knowledge to ensure every component is integrated into the complete roof system, including

The Roofing Environment

Worker Safety


Worker safety is our number one priority at Roof Rescue Inc.. The physical exertion required for the job combined with the varying heights, slopes, and exposure to ambient weather conditions create a unique work environment for roofers. We help keep our workers safe by the following osha safety guidelines and conducting routine safety meetings.


Client Safety


Roof Rescue’s site-safety program extends beyond our employees to include:

  • The home owners, their children and their pets
  • Business owners, their customers and their employees
  • Exterior appliances
  • Landscaping
  • Pools and pool enclosures
  • Windows and doors

Stopping Damage Before It Happens


We survey each job site for areas that might be vulnerable to damage by fugitive sliding materials and tools.

  • Plywood is placed in front of garage doors and windows that are subject to possible kickback.
  • Sensitive landscape or exterior appliances are protected with tarpaulins or plastic sheeting.
  • Pools or ponds may be fully or partially covered.

Keeping The Site Clean


Cleanup begins at project initiation and continues through to completion. Roof Rescue
pays special attention to errant nails and metal waste. Our workers utilize both hand-held and rolling industrial magnets to extract metallic debris from around bushes, shrubs, lawns and flowerbeds, as these areas are especially sensitive to homes with children and pets.
