Ask The Important Questions

Most so called “lifetime warranties” do not fully cover leaks caused by faulty workmanship. WaterTight Roofing and Exteriors warranty is fully transferable up to 30 years. WaterTight Roofing offers a lifetime transferable warranty at no extra cost.
Proper Nail Placement is also critical to the warranty & performance of your new shingles. Manufacturers have very strict requirements for the placement of all fasteners through the shingles, & if not followed WILL void the warranty on the entire roof, even if only a few shingles are found to be improperly fastened.
Decking is the wood beneath your shingles. Manufacturers have requirements for this as well, for their warranties to apply. Decking must either be 4’x8′ sheets of plywood or OSB.
Older homes also may have 1×8, 1×10, or 1×12 boards that are NOT approved for shingle warranties. Excessive gaps or boards wider than 6″ require a minimum layer of 3/8” plywood or OSB to be installed over the old boards to achieve a solid, smooth, structurally sound deck for the application of felts, metal edgings, and shingles. Final decisions regarding decking costs can typically be made after careful inspection from the underside of the roof structure or when the old shingles are removed and a complete deck inspection can occur.
Sheathing over ship-lap decking, also shows the ridge opened up for ridge venting. Ship-lap, a type of plank decking installed from the 1930s into the 1960s has been known to cause issues with composition shingles due to its irregularities. The ship-lap, or any other “solid” plank type roof decking, were also typically green lumber (not kiln dried) and will shrink 5%-10% leaving gaps greater than ¼” and knotholes greater than 1”. When new it was actually a nice tight roof deck system. Over time the wood dries out, splits and cracks form, knots fall out and the boards warp and pull free from fasteners. It is common to see a bulge in roofs where the end of a plank has sprung from its anchoring and is now curling away from the roof. Because these boards continue to expand and contract with temperature & humidity the problems just keep getting worse as time goes along. Most composition shingle manufactures will not warranty their products when installed over old plank type roof decking.
