Roofing Installations

Having a new roof installed on your home can be very unsettling. We here at Mortensen roofing company are well aware of this fact. This thought is at the front of our minds from the moment we back our truck into your driveway. Our goal is to give our clients the best possible roof while at the same time meeting each person’s expectations.

The Process from our Roofers

Most all of our roof installations are completed in three to five days, which our customers find very convenient. Our process is as follows:

  • We begin between 8 and 9 a.m. Getting an early start ensures that we will complete as much of the job as possible on any given day.
  • A crew of 4-7 experienced roofing professionals with a foreman will show up, along with a medium size dump truck loaded with the materials you have selected for your home. This truck will also be used to haul away the old roof, so you do not have to bring anyone else in to clean up the mess we make!
  • We begin by removing the old roof at the farthest point from the truck. We only remove what we can finish that day, always keeping an eye on the weather. Once we have removed the old roofing materials we will inspect the wood underneath and replace as needed.
  • The next step in the process is to install shingle felt along with an ice and water shield in the valleys and any other potential problem areas. Not only do we do the job efficiently, we also go the extra mile to get the job done right (the first time).
  • Now we are ready to begin installing shingles. As the shingles are being installed we will install any needed metal flashings and drip edge. The final steps in the process involve the installation of ridge vents and the sealing of all roof projections as well as a thorough cleaning of any loose debris that has fallen around your home using a magnetic nail sweeper. This ensures that your yard is safe as soon as we leave your property.

Gutter Installations

Gutters are an important feature on any home (or other building) and can add value to any building. They help to carry water away from the foundation, thus protecting the very thing upon which the home rests. Without question, water is the most destructive force to any building, and is a silent killer that can eat away at the foundation of your house. Gutters are the ultimate solution to this problem, as they help to prevent mold and mildew from being a problem both on the outside and inside of the home.

What constitutes a quality gutter system?

A good gutter system will have no seams in the gutters except for the corners. In order to ensure there are no seams, an installer must bring a gutter machine to the job and form the gutters on site.

Approximately 30-40 feet long is the longest gutter that can be safely transported. Almost all homes require gutters longer than this to achieve seamless installation, meaning on-site assembly is normally required.

The seams in the corners should be hand cut by a professional. If he/she is using a pre cut corner you will have 3 seams in each corner. The size most used today is a 6 inch gutter with a 4 inch downspout.

The most common material is aluminum with a baked on enamel paint. Lastly the gutters must be kept clean in order to perform. If your gutters are not kept clean, they will fail as foreign debris seep in.
