Our Asphalt Roof Replacement System

The Product That We Use

At Northlake Roofing Company, we use a tried-and-true product called CertainTeed.  CertainTeed has been manufacturing roofing products since 1904 and has earned the reputation of the product to use to protect your home.

Asphalt shingles have been used on homes in the United States since the early 1900s. Since that time, leading shingle manufacturers, like CertainTeed, have been continually improving asphalt roofing products through their research and manufacturing efforts. As a result, an asphalt shingle roof has become a great value. Today, asphalt shingles can be purchased in a wide variety of colors, designer styles and weights. These products have become so attractive and rugged that 80 percent of the homes in the United States now have an asphalt shingle roof.


Our Installation Process - The Basics

We start by installing ice and water-shield on the most vulnerable parts of the roof.  This includes eaves, flashing areas, and valleys.

Once the ice and water-shield is installed, a water resistant underlayment is applied over the roof deck to provide a layer of protection in addition to the shingles.

After the underlayment is installed, we install starter shingles around the perimeter of the roof that acts as an additional sealant to prevent water from running in between the seams of the first row of shingles.  Experienced roofers, such as Northlake Roofing Company, also run the starter shingles up the rake edge.

Now that the roof has been waterproofed and secured, your favorite shingles can be installed along with hips, roof caps, and roof ventilation - guaranteeing a leak free roof for years to come!
