The scenery in this area of Ventura County is so inviting that you want to spend the time outdoors. But that very same sun you seek and enjoy can also cause great harm to your home’s roof. The constant exposure to the sun’s and the collection of heat that occurs can leave you with a vulnerable roof.

TILE ROOF REPAIR PROJECT
The tile roof was leaked at both side of the chimney because the chimney flashing was installed incorrectly. We replaced all the rotted plywood, added new chimney flashings, added double layers of 40 lb underlayment, re-installed original tiles.
For this Thousand Oaks roofing project, the roof was also leaked around the perimeter of roof, because previous contractor did not install eave riser along the eave of the roof to along the water to drain, as recommended by Manufacturers.
To make it worse, no drip edge was installed. So the water was trapped at battens underneath the tiles and rotted plywood, rafter tails and fascia boards along the perimeter of the roof. We replaced all the damaged wood, added new tile rise, edge metal and double layers of underlayment. Below, you'll see each step of this project.
NEW SHINGLE AND FLAT ROOF INSTALLATION IN THOUSAND OAKS
This customer initially contacted us for leak repair. After we started the job, we discovered that too much damage had occurred and that it would be more cost efficient to replace the entire roof. For this Thousand Oaks roofing project, we installed new Landmark Pro Max Def Georgetown Grey Composition shingles. In the flat roof section we added new roofing membrane using a torch down process.
ROOFING THOUSAND OAKS: SHINGLE ROOF TRELLIS REPAIR
In front of the window in this Thousand Oaks home, there is a 4’x6’ wood trellis to allow light to pass through the window and it is beautiful architectural detail. Unfortunately the trellis had rotted and several attempts have been made to repair it by other contractors all unsuccessful. The beams were cracked and misaligned. In order to repair it correctly we removed approximately 200 sq. ft. of shingle roofing, removed 5 end beams of an 8 ft. section and attached new beams back with structural screws. All wood surfaces were painted with 3 coats of matching exterior primer paint.
This is the trellis described above that was cracked and misaligned during this roofing project.
We removed the existing roofing materials, wood sheathing and beams
