6-Part Roofing System

New England Roofing offers a 6-Part Roofing System:

1. Ice & Water shield/ Bitchathane
A self-adhering, waterproofing shingle underlayment designed to protect against water infiltration due to ice dams or wind driven rain.
  2. Drip Edge
A non-corrosive material installed around the perimeter of the roof, to allow water run-off to drip clear of underlying
construction and keep the trim protected.
  3. Felt/Underlayment
A sheet of asphalt-saturated material (often called tar paper) used as a secondary layer of protection for the roof deck.
4. Flashing
Pieces of metal used to prevent the seepage of water around any intersection or protrusion in a roof system, such as vent pipes, chimneys, valleys and joints at vertical walls.

5. Shingles

25, 30, 40, 50 or Lifetime shingles are available.
6. Ridge Vent:
Cutting back the plywood 3 inches on each side of ridge and applying a fibrous material that is covered with cap shingles. This allows hot air to
escape as it rises to the top of the attic.
