Roof Replacement Due to Hail Damage in Piedmont
This Piedmont home suffered from hail damage. Roof Roof installed 5,300 sq ft of Owen's Corning Duration shingles in Brownwood for the full roof replacement. Owen's Corning accessories (hip and ridge shingles, starter strip, ice and water shield, etc) were also used.  This roof proved to be a little tricky due to the odd angles and facets. They weren't what you would typically find on an average roof. Normally, we weave the shingles in the valley, but we weren't able to install them that way this time. We had to perform a closed cut on the valley for performance anesthetics, meaning that we had to wrap the shingles from one facet of the roof up the other facet. Lastly, we had to bring the shingles from the opposite side to the valley, then cut them down the middle.
Hail Damage on Pelzer, SC United Methodist Church
Pelzer United Methodist Church suffered from hail damage during a storm. They called Roof Roof for help with the roof replacement. The roof was over 20 years old, along with hail damage. We sent one of our experienced sales representatives to give the church liason an estimate of the damage. They also needed the roof of their parsonage replaced as well. We negotiated the contract, then negotiated the amount with their insurance company. Once the contract was finalized, Roof Roof began work on the church and its parsonage. The church liason chose Certainteed Moire Black shingles. This was a fairly easy, but large, job to complete. It took a total of 6 days to complete both roof replacements. 
Rotten Wood Rafter Repair In Williamston, SC
Robbie had age related issues to her roof and new it was getting time to replace. She called Roof Roof becuase of her friend had used our company and told her how great of a job we did. We came out and evaluated the roof and gave her a free estimate. She accepted our proposal and we started 3 days later.  We began by removing the old roof down to the wood sheathing. After the old roof was removed, we noticed that the decking and rafters over the front porch were rotten. We took pictures and showed the homeowner the damage and suggested that they be replaced. She agreed. We replaced 6 rafters in this area and installed new decking. We then installed ice and water shield in the valleys and around the chimney. She chose Owens Corning Supreme Chateau Green 3 tab shingles which were installed as well as new chimney flashing. After one day, Robbie had a brand new roof and a more structurally sound house. Another happy customer!
New Sun Tunnel Installation in Salem, SC
This homeowner had a roof that was nearing the end of its life. They decided to be proactive and get the roof replaced before it caused any extensive damage. While browsing through shingle choices they discovered the 14" Velux Sun Tunnel. With a dark living room, they needed some more light inside. We quoted the sun tunnel with the roof replacement and they accepted our proposal. While the roof was being installed, we marked a location on the inside of the living room where they would like the lens to be centered. We got in the attic to make sure it was centered between the rafters. After centering the lens, we cut out the drywall per the instructions. We then installed the lens in the newly cut out hole. We measured from the new lens to the roof decking and put a screw through the roof deck to mark where the hole needed to be cut on the roof. After getting on the roof, we cut out the circle where the base of the sun tunnel would go. The base was installed and screwed down, flashed in and new shingles were installed around it. We then installed the supplied light tube into the sun tunnel base and connected it to the lens. Lastly, we put on the clear acrylic cap. The customer was ecstatic over the amount of light the sun tunnel brought it. 
St. Andrew's Catholic Church Roof Replacement
Preserving the historic attributes of a building can be difficult. Especially when the building needs a new roof. However, with so many roofing options you can keep the overall historic qualities the same. At St. Andrews Catholic Church we removed the top layer of tile and the existing decking. Installed new decking,Rex synthetic underlayment, copper valleys, copper drip edge and CertainTeed Grand Manor shingles. The challenge was not damaging the ceiling in the church. We had to be extra careful as the ceiling was vaulted and plastered. Another quality job and happy customer!
Roof Roof to the Rescue in Williamston, SC
In the spring of 2013, Roof Roof South Carolina was pleased to participate in the first Lean On Me Project to help a Williamston family in need. The Lean On Me Project was created to honor the memory of Lacee’ Dial, an Anderson County teen who lost her life in a car accident in 2012. With the help of many volunteers, and the generosity of a number of area businesses, the Lean On Me crew performed a dramatic renovation of the home of William and Mary Cureton, a disabled Williamston couple. The walls were made of cinderblock with no insulation, many windows were broken, and there was no plumbing in the house at all. Roof Roof crews removed the roof entirely, installed a new roof, insulated the attic area, and added gutters with gutter guard. Volunteers installed vinyl siding, fresh paint, new landscaping, and a fence on the exterior. On the inside, a new kitchen and bathroom were put in. To finish it off, volunteers installed new trim, vinyl flooring, and painted all the walls and ceilings. Roof Roof is so honored to be able to give back to the community that has given so much to us, and we look forward to many more opportunities like this!
Concord Baptist Roof Replacement
The roof replacement at Concord Baptist Church was a challenge at many levels. The roof had hail damage to it and was paid for by the insurance company. We started tearing off the roof on January 4th, 2016. During the tear off, we noticed that the sheathing was not solid wood but rather a mineral board. After pulling the architectural plans we found out why. This building was built as a Fire class 2 rated structure. Essentially, this means that the building itself had to be constructed out of non-combustible material. Steel, concrete, brick, and mineral board is the construction of this building. This created one big issue for our company. Code and the manufacturer required a nail-able surface (wood only). However, since the building was built as a class 2, we had to stay within those parameters.  To solve the problem, we had lengthy discussions with Loadmaster, who supplied the original mineral board, and Owens Corning, the shingle manufacturer. We agreed that a new layer of mineral board needed to be installed to create a new nailing surface and a specialty fastener was to be used called a Do All Loc Nail. These nails have a head similar to a roofing nail but have two prongs that come straight down and have jagged teeth on the sides. Once the nail is driven into the mineral board, it flares out and locks in.  Once Owens Corning and LoadMaster agreed on the installation, we went to the code office and got approval. The insurance company was notified of the difference in scope and a supplemental check was issued. We got back started on the roof in the middle of February. We worked in conjunction with the LoadMaster installers and a gutter company to complete the work.  We removed each section, 6 total, and added an additional layer of 1/2" LoadMaster mineral board. The mineral needed to be installed differently than the first 2 layers due to the increased wind ratings. All the seams on the mineral board were taped. We installed Rex Synthetic underlayment and high temp ice and water shield for dry in. We then installed new Owens Corning Duration Estate Grey shingles, replaced all the lead boots, 5 box cents, 24 gauge step and counter flashing, and added a custom fabricated drip edge. The project took 6 weeks to complete.  This project was rather complicated. However, by following the installation guidelines with the manufacturers we were able to put on a roof that will last the next 40+ years.

Designer Shingle Replacement in IVA, SC
Due to hail damage, the homeowner was forced to replace his new roof. Becuase the original roof was not that old, he wanted something that could stand up to hail and wind a lot better. We offered him the CertainTeed Landmark triple-laminated Resawn Shake shingles. After 2 days, the brand new roof was installed, and we had another satisfied customer.
