Challenge

The challenge with this Falcon Heights home was to bring the house up to code, and to stop the leaking that was ruining the insulation and other roofing components.

Solution

To solve this challenge, we first assessed the home as a whole with our free inspection. We discovered the damage caused by roof leaks, and put a plan of action in place to prevent further leaking. First, we removed the starter shingles on the roof. There was no Ice & Water Barrier, which is designed to prevent driving wind and rain, the kind of weather that can work its way under the strongest of shingles. We installed a barrier, and then put new Owens Corning Duration shingles in Driftwood over the Ice & Water. The Duration line is independently tested to withstand record-breaking winds, so it's a good choice to protect against heavy storms.
