Built Right Home Solutions Case Studies: South Windsor, CT Wind Damage and Roof Replacement

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 by Matthew Hibberd


Some very powerful storms did a number on this home owner's roof. The winds tore off some of the shingles from the roof. Missing shingles is something that can't be ignored. Not only is it a clear sign that the roof needs repair and/or replacement because more shingles will surely follow but it could very well lead to leaks in the home.


Luckily, one of Built Right's representatives saw the roof damage and offered the home owner a solution to their problem. The team filed a claim for wind damage and contacted their insurance carrier for the home owner. We got the insurance comapny to pay for a full roof replacement! This basically gave the home owner a 90% discount on a brand new roof! Once that was done, Built Right got to work on installing the new roof. We removed all existing shingles of the old roof, inspected the plywood to see if it needed replacement as well, put in felt paper underlayment to protect against leakage, and shingled the whole roof with Rustic Slate Tamko shingles. In addition, we added ice and water guard around the edges and valleys, installed a drip edge around the perimeter of the roof, and put in a ridge vent to properly ventilate the roof and attic. A very unique thing about this roof was that it had 4 chimneys and what we had to do to make sure leaks didn't occur in those areas. What we did was use extra flashing around the home owner’s chimneys and upgraded the home owner to the use of thicker felt paper underlayment. Now the home owner couldn't be happier with their new roof!
