Brown Roofing Company, Inc. Case Studies: Fairfield, CT Commercial Roofing Replacement
The roof on this Fairfield, CT funeral home had been replaced many times over its life, but it was never done properly. The original roof has cedar shake shingles that were replaced with asphalt shingles. But in order to save time and money, the contractor who installed the roof put the replacement shingles right over top of the cedar shake shingles. Many years, and many leaks later, they replaced the roof again, this time just putting plywood over the existing layers of roofing before reshingling. This caused serious leaking issues and many unnecessary repairs over the following years.
The best decision this business owner ever made was to call Brown Roofing. Our expert inspector, Jim McDermott, was able to identify all the issues with the roof and offer a proper solution. All three existing layers of the roof were ripped off, along with the underlying plywood. We installed a GAF Lifetime Roofing system in the color slate gray. The new roof comes with a 50-year warranty on material and labor, so they will never have to worry about their roof leaking again!
You can see the multiple layers of roofing stacked on top of each other in this picture. This has caused a lot of leaks over the years, and should have never passed inspection.
The improper installation on this roof has caused need for a lot of repairs. Notice all the tar around the chimney and vent exhaust.
This new roof looks beautiful, and comes with a 50 year warranty, something that only elite roofing contractors like Brown Roofing are able to offer.
