The owners of a beautiful river-front property in Hamilton were very disappointed to discover that their old asphalt shingle roof had been installed with staples instead of nails and the staples had begun to loosen…letting water into the roof’s substrate.
Instead of addressing the issue in patches, they decided to replace the whole roof.
Despite this setback, this provided an opportunity to improve the aesthetics and quality of their roof from both material and installation perspectives. The homeowners decided to re-roof with Viking CertainTeed ‘Highland Slate’ Shingle. This profile was an improvement, but not a significant departure from the look of the existing shingle and the ‘black granite’ colour they chose, suited their style of home.
