I have major roof damage.
What do I do?
Evident roof damage that is not limited to just one area of your roof due to weather events, visible roof deterioration, or even just the age of your roof can determine the need for an entire roof replacement and new roof installation. In such cases, a roof repair may not be the sensible or practical way to go.
If the roof damage is on multiple areas of your roof and the extent of the damage is severe, a patch job here and there will not be a sustainable solution. Our skilled expert roofers at 1A Roofing and Construction have many years of experience in completing quality full roof replacements and new roof installations. We will walk you through and assist you in the entire roofing process – from roof inspection, to filing for a claim if your insurance company is involved, to choosing the color and kind of roofing materials, to the delivery of roofing materials, to completing the roof replacement, and finally, to the final clean up afterwards. We do not cut corners and we use only high grade roofing materials with every roofing job we undertake. Cleaning up after a roofing job is often overlooked, but to us, it is extremely important.

Professional Attic Ventilation Services
Poor Attic Ventilation?
Poor attic ventilation can ruin your insulation, destroy your roofing shingles, and raise your overall energy bills!
It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes in North America do not have proper attic ventilation. Why? Because most people are unaware that attic ventilation can impact the longevity of their entire home!
For example, in the summer, an improperly ventilated attic can cause heat to build in excess of 160°F. This superheated air eventually penetrates the ceiling insulation into the living area below.
Types of damage that can result include:
- Premature aging of your roofing system (“fried” shingles)
- Warping, cracking, or breaking down of wood framing
- Damage to siding, exterior or interior paint, and wallpaper
- Higher energy costs
A properly ventilated attic can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving the superheated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.
In the winter, various household appliances, bathtubs, showers, and cooking vapors can contribute to excess moisture build-up. Improperly ventilated attics will allow this moisture to collect and cling to the underside of the roof. There, it will condense and fall, soaking the attic insulation and reducing its efficiency.
Additional structural damage can include:
- Roof deck warping and rotting of the wood frame
- Mildew growth
- Buckling of shingles and felt
Finally, attics should be properly ventilated to help prevent ice dams in cold northern climates. During the winter, ice and snow on a roof will melt and run down the deck to the cooler eaves. This run-off can re-freeze, creating an ice dam that will trap moisture on the roof. The moisture can eventually back up under the shingles and enter your home — causing hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage to your ceilings and walls. Adequate attic ventilation will reduce the amount of initial melting that occurs on your roof, thereby reducing the chance that ice dams will form.
Proper Attic Ventilation
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic (see illustration at left), protecting the efficiency of the insulation and helping to lower temperatures in the living space.
It consists of a balance between air intake
(at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust
(at or near your roof ridge).
The FHA (Federal Housing Administration) recommends a minimum of at least 1 square foot of attic ventilation (both intake and exhaust) for every 300 square feet of attic space. For example, if your attic is 900 square feet, you need a total of 3 square feet of ventilation. This amount is generally divided equally between intake and exhaust ventilation (i.e., 11/2 feet of each), to insure proper air flow through the attic.
