Smart Care Exteriors Case Studies: Roof Replacement in Hamden, CT

Monday, April 8th, 2013


Upon inspection of this garage roof, we realized we had to replace the roofing completely. This project was a three layer, six square rip. Upon removal of the roof we noticed holes in the plywood or sheathing. While removing the sheathing, we also discovered three rafters were rotted. This roof replacement in Hamden, CT was a great job and the customers are more than pleased!


We removed sheathing entirely in places where it was rotting, so that we could reveal the rafters. Three rafters were removed, purchased, fit to size, and reinstalled in designated areas. After the rafters were replaced, we were able to reinstall the sheathing on the roof deck.

From here, we were then able to complete this roof like a typical re-roof. We installed Ice and Water protective rubber 36” on eaves, valleys, chimneys, skylights and low pitch areas (no skylights on this particular roof). After ice and water protective rubber is installed, we can then add 15lb tar paper on the entire roof surface. Aluminum edging is then installed on roof perimeter. The homeowner chose Pewter Grey for the GAF Lifetime shingle that was installed on this roof in Hamden.

Smart Care Exteriors includes dumpster fees along with clean up and debris removal on each job site.
