This historic roof in Capitol Heights, a downtown Montgomery, Alabama neighborhood, was one of our more difficult projects. We removed (2) layers of roofing on the slope sections and up to (6) layers of roofing on the flact sections. The decking repairs were extensive. Because 4' of soffit was exposed, we had to add a layer of 1/2" 4'by8' CDX plywood around the perimeter of the roof, allowing us to use 1 1/4" roof nails. We then installed synthetic felt underlayment, changed all pipes collars and valley flashings, installed custom eave drip flashing, and properly flashed (4) chimneys. Finally, we installed a GAF (Pewter Grey) Timberline HD architectural shingle. As all of our roofs, this roof qualifies as a GAF Systems Plus Warranty roof system.
