Homeowners in North Jersey have to consider a variety of weather factors affecting the investment in their home. Hurricanes, Nor’easters, snow, ice, rain, and cold winter temperatures can wreak havoc on a roof.
No new roofing system is complete without a leak barrier. The leak barrier protects the areas of your roof that are the most vulnerable to the elements – the edges. The leak barrier keeps wind-blown rain, ice, and snow that can push up under roof shingles from damaging the roof decking and allowing moisture into the home. In the photos above and below, you can see the leak barrier on the lower portion of the roof on a home in Parsippany, NJ where we recently finished installing a new CertainTeed roof.
Most shingle manufacturer warranties require that leak barriers be installed with all new roof installations, and leak barriers are a standard part of every installation we do.
