Alaskan Yellow Cedar Premium Tapersawns

Designed by Grandberg & Associates Architects, and built by Hobbs Inc. , Backcountry Greenwich, Connecticut is the setting for this breathtaking Shingle-style home. We were selected as the roofing contractor to install the roofing, flashing, and gutters.

The roofing system began with the installation of Grace Ice & Water Shield® self-adhered roofing underlayment over the ¾”plywood roof substrate. This product was installed at the eaves, valleys, rakes, and roof/wall intersections. Additionally we installed a 30 lb. roofing felt over the entirety of the roof sheathing.

Prior to the shingle installation a three-dimensional underlayment of “Cedar Breather” was installed to promote air flow beneath the shingles.

Roof mounted solid copper roof mounted shank and circle gutter hangers were then installed; spaced at approximately 24”and fastened with stainless steel screws.

All of the roof flashing components, the masonry thru-wall flashing and through to the flue flashing at the chimneys  were fabricated out of 20 oz. cold roll red copper. All copper flashing materials were fastened with copper nails.

The finished roof was comprised of Alaskan Yellow Pedar Premium 5/8”Tapersawn , 18 inches in length and installed at 5 ½” exposure. Because the property was within 15 miles of salt water, we fastened all of our roofing shingles with Type 316 stainless steel shingle nails.

The lead coated copper gutter and leader system was comprised of 6”half round gutter and 4”plain round leader.
