Very Clean Tear-Off Job

Notice how well the site is cleaned up on a Jarvis Tear-Off Roofing Job. The bushes and Landscape are not crunched or damaged. The sidewalks, driveway, and steps have been swept. All Shingle Debris has been disposed of into a roll-off dumpster. The new roof looks great, and the Customers Happy!!



Jarvis Builders takes Special Precautions to Eliminate Damage from Falling Shingles

  • The entire area below the roof area to be torn off is covered with tarps.
  • OSB is leaned up to the home to keep falling shingles from bouncing off the siding, windows, patio doors, and landscaping.
  • In this case OSB was laid on top of the tarps to prevent damage to the customer's composite decking.
  • Once the roof has been stripped to the decking, swept, and gutters cleaned the shingles and debris are cleaned off the tarps and disposed of into a roll off dumpster.

The End Result is a Very Clean Tear-Off Job


Masonary Chimney Flashing

Flashing the Chimney is a 3 Step Process

  1. First as we Dry In the roof decking we install Ice & Water Shield around and 4" onto the base of the chimney.
  2. Second as we shingle around the chimney we install aluminum step shingles to seal the base of the chimney to the shingled roof and provide a permanent aluminum water gutter to prevent leakage without using caulking that would dry out and leak over time.
  3. Finally, custom Made Aluminum Counter Flashing is installed over the Step Shingles and Ice & Water Shield. The unit is cut into the chimney along the top and sealed. The corners are hemmed and pop riveted for a permanent installation.
