1 / Roof Deck
Rubinsky Roofing will always tear off all roof components to expose your roof deck Rubinsky Roofing will make the proper deck repairs to ensure the deck is ready for the roof installation.
The roof deck (wood) lays between the structural components of a roof (the joists, rafters etc), the insulation, and the waterproofing layers (ice and water shield, synthetic felt, shingles etc). The roof deck is the section of the roof where everything else is placed. If your deck is compromised, your entire roofing system is compromised!
2 / Ice Water Shield
Rubinsky Roofing will install Ice and water shield directly on the clean and proper roof deck. It will be installed on all valleys (where two slopes meet) and around all penetrations.
Ice and water shield is a self-adhering waterproofing underlayment that is used in roofing to help prevent damage caused by ice dams and wind driven rain.
3 / Syntetic Felt
Rubinsky Roofing will install synthetic felt on the entire roof.
Roofing Synthetic felt is composed of a base, made from fiberglass or polyester, and then coated or saturated with a protective coating such as bitumen (asphalt), which repels water but still allows the product to breathe. It is 600% greater tear strength than a standard 30 pound felt.
4 / Drip Edge
Rubinsky Roofing will install drip edge along the eves (where the roof starts and is straight) and along the rakes (where the roof starts and is angled).
Drip edge is metal flashing installed at the edges of the roof to keep water away from your fascia and from getting underneath your roofing components and damage your roof deck. If your roof doesn't have drip edge, water gets behind your gutters and rots out both your fascia board and roof decking.
5 / Starter Strip
Rubinsky Roofing will install starter strip along the éaves (where the roof starts and is straight) and along the rakes (where the roof starts and is angled).
A starter strip is an asphalt based shingle utilized to waterproof the eave and rake edges of your home during a re-roof. Adhesive tar strips help prevent shingle blow-off from harsh winds.
6 / Shingles
Rubinsky Roofing will only install shingles manufactured by the very best shingle manufacturers.
Typically, asphalt shingles are composed of layers: a base mat, layer of waterproofing asphalt, and a layer of ceramic granules. While there are many types of asphalt shingles, they also come in fiberglass or organic makeup.
7 / Ventilation
Rubinsky Roofing will ensure the roof has proper ventilation and prime and paint all vents to match.
Ventilation is essential to ensure the roof performs correctly. Installing roof vents moderates the temperature in an attic or roof space. By preventing a roof space from getting too hot or too cold you reduce the build-up of moisture levels. This will prevent mold building up in the house and ensure the roofing components perform properly.
