ICE & WATER SHIELD

02

Ice and water shield is a self-adhering waterproofing underlayment that is used in roofing to help prevent damage caused by ice dams and wind driven rain.

Rubinsky Roofing will install Ice and water shield directly on the clean and proper roof deck. It will be installed on all valleys (where two slopes meet) and around all penetrations.

Next: Synthetic felt

SYNTHETIC FELT

03

Roofing Synthetic felt is composed of a base, made from fiberglass or polyester, and then coated or saturated with a protective coating such as bitumen (asphalt), which repels water but still allows the product to breathe. It is 600% greater tear strength than a standard 30 pound felt.

Rubinsky Roofing will install synthetic felt on the entire roof. 

Next: Drip Edge

DRIP EDGE

04

Drip edge is metal flashing installed at the edges of the roof to keep water away from your fascia and from getting underneath your roofing components and damage your roof deck. If your roof doesn't have drip edge, water gets behind your gutters and rots out both your fascia board and roof decking.

Rubinsky Roofing will install drip edge along the eves (where the roof starts and is straight) and along the rakes (where the roof starts and is angled).

Next: Starter strip

ROOF DECK

01

The roof deck (wood) lays between the structural components of a roof (the joists, rafters etc), the insulation, and the waterproofing layers (ice and water shield, synthetic felt, shingles etc). The roof deck is the section of the roof where everything else is placed. If your deck is compromised, your entire roofing system is compromised!

Rubinsky Roofing will always tear off all roof components to expose your roof deck  Rubinsky Roofing will make the proper deck repairs to ensure the deck is ready for the roof installation. 

Next: Ice & Water Shield

STARTER STRIP

05

A starter strip is an asphalt based shingle utilized to waterproof the eave and rake edges of your home during a re-roof. Adhesive tar strips help prevent shingle blow-off from harsh winds.

Rubinsky Roofing will install starter strip along the eves (where the roof starts and is straight) and along the rakes (where the roof starts and is angled).

Next: Shingles

SHINGLES

06

Typically, asphalt shingles are composed of layers: a base mat, layer of waterproofing asphalt, and a layer of ceramic granules. While there are many types of asphalt shingles, they also come in fiberglass or organic makeup.

Rubinsky Roofing will only install shingles manufactured by the very best shingle manufacturers.

Next: Ventilation

VENTILATION

07

Ventilation is essential to ensure the roof performs correctly. Installing roof vents moderates the temperature in an attic or roof space. By preventing a roof space from getting too hot or too cold you reduce the build-up of moisture levels. This will prevent mold building up in the house and ensure the roofing components perform properly. 

Rubinsky Roofing will ensure the roof has proper ventilation and prime and paint all vents to match.
