An attic is like the thermometer of an ailing house. Structural damage and rotting plywood may not always be visible from the outside, but we can certainly tell by what we see occurring underneath the roof. When we surveyed the attic of this home in Hebron, we found signs of water damage. As part of the roof installation, the decking was replaced with new CDX plywood and we covered all exposed wood with Owens Corning DeckDefense Synthetic underlayment. An aluminum drip edge was installed along the roof perimeter and the chimney was re-pointed and flashed with lead. This job was protected by the complete Owens Corning Platinum Protection Warranty, so we can guarantee the materials used as well as our workmanship.
The attic in this Storrs, CT house was stifling. We found that faulty ventilation within the old roof was to blame for an overly hot and unlivable third floor. This home also experienced serious ice dams in the winter time, which are a sure indicator of poor air flow in the roof line. We installed a new roof with improved furrings and under-gutter vents. The owner has since reported that their upstairs living space is now comfortable, even on the hotter summer days.
Gutters are an essential asset to any house. They prevent flooding in the basement as well as damage to siding and the shrubbery around the home. On this full roof replacement in Southington, we installed a new gutter and downspout system. Gutters must be installed properly in order for them to be effective. The downspout should run all the way down past the siding to an elbow that diverts water away from the foundation. Keep them unclogged and well maintained, and you'll be adding years to your home's lifespan.
Installing a full roof on this Victorian house in Willimantic was a great honor and privilege for us. The complex style of architecture along with the turret required a highly proficient roofing company, and we were happy to oblige. All of the plywood needed to be removed and replaced, as part of a complete overhaul. We've worked on residential turrets before, so we were prepared with the experience needed to effectively roof a conical structure in a timely and proficient manner. This job had a remarkable outcome and the home is a lot closer to being fully restored. It is one more piece of Connecticut history that we have both protected and rejuvenated.
This Prospect, CT dwelling is an impressive feat of modern architecture. Unfortunately, the roof was falling into disrepair and needed a full replacement. The windows are obviously a focal point on this home, so it was vital for Klaus Larsen to make the skylights look equally as exquisite. We rebuilt this roof from the insulation up, and it came out looking great. Call us soon to schedule your free estimate!
This ranch home, in West Hartford, was experiencing issues with ice dams over the bay windows and soffits. New Owens Corning shingles have worked wonders with reinforcing and protecting this house. We also added a ridge vent and updated the interior insulation, to make this roof that much more resilient.
Here is another home that was once plagued by ice dams. This Hebron, CT homeowner was experiencing some leakage and the telltale sign of icicles circumferencing the attic. Those icicles may look pretty, but they are a sure indicator of some serious problems with your roof. Be ready for next year, with a full roof replacement.
This Vernon, CT home had a twenty-five year old roof on it, which is a little over the average life expectancy of asphalt shingles. If your roof is approaching a quarter life crisis, give us a call for a free consultation with one of our experts.
A successful roofing job is about installing a functional, long lasting structure that serves to protect the home. However, the appearance of your house isn't ignored by any means. This Portland, CT property looks stunningly new with the simple addition of a new roof. Owens Corning offers several shades of asphalt, to serve as a handsome accompaniment to the color of your home. From 'Aged Cedar' to 'Twilight Black,' we're sure to have something in store to fit your aesthetic needs.
Once algae starts to grow on the north facing side of your roof, it's difficult to stop the spores from spreading. The dark streaks are mostly cosmetic, but in time they will join forces with lichen to thrive off the limestone in your asphalt shingles. This weakens the shingle, and eventually deteriorates the entire roof. We gave this New Britain, CT home a fresh start with algae resistant Owens Corning Duration shingles. Klaus also recommends using zinc strips down the line, to really keep those spores away.
We were brought to Newington, CT for this house which was damaged in the now infamous Winter of '15. A second floor ice dam had caused a leak in the first floor family room. After a free consultation and estimate with the homeowner, we determined a plan for proper ventilation and repairs. This is one roof that will be free of ice dams for years to come.

This Middletown, CT home had issues with water leakage from a 2009 addition. After making the necessary prognosis, we have resolved this issue and the interior remains dry under freshly installed Owens Corning shingles.
New England truly is a land dictated by the seasons. This house in Hebron, CT was in need of emergency repair in the middle of a freezing, February winter. We were one of the only roofers that could promptly do a full replacement, despite several feet of snow blanketing the ground. Spring has sprung, and the home is looking fully rejuvenated.
This home had some water leakage issues, which we resolved with a full roof overhaul. The flashing, siding, chimney and of course the shingles were all replaced. Even the roof of the shed was renewed with the same materials to give this Prospect property a nice, cohesive appearance.
Some jobs have unexpected obstacles, like on this house in Portland. Upon removing the old roof, we found a gaping hole in the original construction. This required a full underlying structure rebuild to make it all one plane. With a foundation now providing support underneath, the finished roof turned out fantastic and much sturdier. We understand that every roof is different, and at Klaus Larsen we are always willing to adapt to unforeseen issues.
