This roof installation had an area where we usually find problems. That area is what in roofing terms we call a transition. What this means is that two different slopes or pitches of a roof come together. It usually occurs where a porch connects to your roof, as it did on this particular home. Where the transition from two different pitches occurs we need to make sure that water has a path to flow off of the roof. That requires that we use the correct material to help the water flow correctly. For this particular project, we installed ice and water shield to ensure that water does not penetrate the roof barrier as well as the correct roofing material for a low-pitched roof. Shingles are not material that should ever go on a 4 pitch or lower. We also installed a class IV shingle for this homeowner so she would not need to worry about any small hail that we get regularly. We made sure this home was in better condition than it was before the storm by addressing the problem area and installing a premium shingle.
