Attractive Residential Flat Roof or Low Slope Options

December 21st, 2018 by Ima Admin

If your home has an addition, a porch, a 3-season room or an attached carport, you may have struggled in the past to find low slope/flat roof solutions that have “curb appeal” and at the same time stand up to Michigan weather.

Flat Roof/Low Slope Solutions from Premier

Low slope roofs (often called flat roofs, but which are not technically flat because they have positive drainage) pose real problems for homeowners because shingles will fail in low slope deployments. Options such as TPO membrane roofs or EPDM and PCV membrane roof systems don’t offer the aesthetically pleasing materials to color-coordinate with your shingles and require more elaborate installation methods.

Ice Dam Management & Prevention in West Michigan

January 5th, 2018 by Ima Admin

ice dam remediation grand rapids mi illustrated by house with iciclesAfter a comparatively gentle winter in 2017, the northern phenom of ice dams are back in West Michigan with a vengeance. Sub-zero conditions and building snow have homeowners scrambling to prevent the kind of problems nearly everyone experienced in the harsh winter conditions of 2014.

What Causes Ice Dams?

You might think the obvious answer to this question is “snow.” However, that’s only part of the complex interaction that actually causes ice dams. The variables that interact include the amount of heat loss from a house, snow cover, and outside temperatures. For ice dams to form there must be snow on the roof, and, at the same time, higher portions of the roof’s outside surface must be above 32°F while lower surfaces are below 32°F. For a portion of the roof to be below 32°F, outside temperatures must also be below 32°F. Read the rest of this entry »

Getting Ready for Winter Part 2: Ice Dams Be Damned

September 24th, 2015 by Ima Admin

Fotolia_51481622_XSSome winters are rougher than others in Michigan in terms of Ice Dams, and while at Grand Rapids Roofing by Premier, we’re hoping for a mild winter, we’re ready if it’s rough!  Understanding and managing attic air temperatures through insulation and venting is one of the best proactive steps you can take to avoid ice dams this winter.

To prevent ice dams, you need to keep the roof cold so that the snow on the roof dissipates without making large amounts of meltwater that then refreezes. The underside of the roof deck should not exceed 30 F. The way to achieve this is to ensure that there is adequate insulation, ventilation, and to seal all gaps that let warm air pass into the attic from the house. Read the rest of this entry »
