Most roofs vary in shape and size and each presents their own unique challenges. We have found that the median size home in the grand strand area will take between 2-3 days for a complete tear-off and replacement. This can and will vary depending on the weather, and the size and shape of the roof system being replaced.

Our backlog of work is typically 3 weeks. If a client chooses a roof system that the suppliers carry in stock we typically start the project between 2-3 weeks from the time the contract is signed.

A CertainTeed Integrity roof system has a lifetime warranty. With our Certification from CertainTeed, we give every CertainTeed Integrity roof system a 50-year non-prorated warranty on the roof materials used, a 5 year Labor warranty, and a 15 year 130 MPH wind warranty.

The typical pipe boot used throughout the industry lasts about 5 years. All of our roofs come with The Ultimate Pipe Flashing boots. These Boots provide a lifetime precision watertight seal with its ultra-pure Silicone boot & PVC compression collar

The drip edge is located at the lower half of the roof. It is used to prevent water from wicking up the bottom of the shingle and getting behind the fascia materials.

We recommend having your roof inspected once a year. The weather extremes in the Grand Strand Area put a lot of stress on your roof system and it should be looked at on an annual basis

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.

Ice and water used along the Eaves of a roof are typically there to prevent damage to the roof deck caused by Ice Dams on the edges of the roof.  Our Climate in the Myrtle Beach area does not typically allow Ice dams to build upon the edges of the roofs.
