Roofing Contractors You Can Count On
Quality roofing is crucial in Vermont and New Hampshire, where the seasons and storms can be harsh. In fact, the roof and the related roof flashings are likely the most important components of your home because they protect everything beneath them—not only the structure and interior of your house, but your family as well. And when considering roof repair, re-roofing, or roof restoration, the merit of your contracting team is equally as important as the quality of the components they use.
Each roof, and every roofing project, is different. As such, at Jancewicz & Son, each and every project begins with a thorough evaluation of your roof and attic, and an equally thorough, hands-on consultation. Since we serve as your roofing consultants and contractors, we are with you every step of the way, continually evaluating the project from inception to completion and ensuring the job is done right, done on time, and done within your budget.
Whether you need roof repair, restoration, or a completely new roof installation, one thing is for sure: no single home improvement project can have as significant an impact as your roofing. With Jancewicz & Son, not only will your finished project be fully protected from the elements, but it will also provide beauty and charm while adding value to your home.
What are the options?
Obviously there are a number of things to consider when deciding on what type of roof to install on your home, from cost and durability to style and performance. The right roof is the one that balances all of these factors.

Basic Roof Structure
Most homes are built with gable-style roofs, consisting of two planes that meet at a central peak. The triangular sections on the ends are the gables. A hip roof is similar to a gable roof except that all four sides are sloped down to the walls. A flat roof generally overhangs the outside walls of the house. Most homes are designed with a combination of the different roof styles.
All roofs have four basic components
Rafter or trusses: provide the frame for the roof structure. Sheathing: usually constructed of boards or sheet material (ex: plywood) provide the first layer of protection. Underlayment: a sheet or roll material that provides a second layer of protection and also may act as a vapor barrier. Roof covering: shingles, tiles, or sheets, which provide a third layer of protection.
The key to waterproofing your home’s roof is flashing. Flashing, if installed correctly, directs streams of water away from these points of entry:
Joints are vulnerable because the two sides may expand and contract at different rates due to a difference in material content or pull apart as a house settles.
This is where selecting a qualified and professional contractor becomes most important. Each shingle or roof panel is manufactured using predetermined specifications. The integrity of your roof many times is determined by how well the joints are sealed or flashed. Don’t be fooled by looks a leaky roof may look great to the casual observer, but the performance of your roof depends heavily on the quality of installation.
