This is a large commercial building that was in desperate need of a new roof! The existing wood shakes were well past their useful life and the building was starting to experience leaks. After a long battle over coverage with its insurer, Morning Star Lutheran was finally able to pull the trigger and we began the work. You can see our crews erecting safety fencing, tearing off the old wood shakes, and begin installation of new Certainteed Presidential Shake IR laminated asphalt shingles. Check back soon for completed project photos!
This project is a great showcase of how JRC staff are experts at dealing with insurers. Initially, the insurer only compensated for a 30 yr. shingle and some gutters. JRC staff negotiated with the owner's insurer for coverage of an impact resistance shingle and coverage of several windows. JRC successfully negotiated for an additional $20,000 of coverage, which means the owner received better materials and more replacement than initially offered by the insurer. You can see JRC staff in some of the photos unloading shingles on top of the roof. This is a great example of a roof replacement project in Omaha, Nebraska by Johnson Roofing and Construction.
This project is an insurance claim. Initially, the insurance adjuster only covered several panels of siding. JRC staff negotiated with the owner's insurer to make sure they covered full replacement - otherwise, this house would be left with awkward mismatched panels and it would not have looked good. JRC then completed the roof and complete siding replacement. This is a good example of a great roof and siding replacement project in Murdock, NE from Johnson Roofing & Construction.
As seen in the photos, the existing wood shake roof on this home was well past its useful life. Johnson Roofing & Construction crews can be seen delivering material on the roof top (roof top deliveries help keep building materials safe and minimize the disturbance caused to the property owner), removing the existing layer of wood shakes, and installing the underlayment and new shingles. Note that ice & water shield can be seen being installed along gables ends and valleys, which is required per Omaha's building code. We also install ice & water shield anywhere that poses a risk for water infiltration, such as skylights and cupolas. Also note that synthetic underlayment is being used rather than traditional roofing felt. Synthetic underlayment provides for a smoother, cleaner installation surface and also protects against water infiltration better than standard roofing felts. Finally, you can see the finished roof along with the newly installed seamless gutter system. Take note of how clean JRC crews leave the work site at the end of each project. This is another great roof installed by Omaha's best roofing contractor, Johnson Roofing & Construction!
Johnson Roofing & Construction crews removed an existing layer of wood shakes, installed GAF synthetic underlayment, IKO StormShield ice & water shield, and IKO Cambridge laminated asphalt shingles. Of particular note on this project was the fact that several fascia boards needed to be replaced. The old shakes extended off the roof line farther than normal, and the original installer tacked small boards along the fascia. Once the old shake layer was removed it created an uneven fascia line which presented a risk for water infiltration. JRC crews adjusted the fascia where needed so that the drip edge and gutter apron would function appropriately and keep water from infiltrating the home. This is a great example of exceptional workmanship on an Omaha roof replacement project from Johnson Roofing & Construction!
This home was experiencing water leakage that was manifesting itself on the interior of the garage. Johnson Roofing & Construction determined that the source of the leak was from deteriorating flashing around a cupola on the roof. Roof structures and skylights are prone for water infiltration, so special care was used to prevent future leaking when this roof was replaced. We placed IKO StormShield ice and water shield around the base of the cupola, then installed step flashing. The new roof installed by Johnson Roofing will now remain water tight for years. We never cut corners when replacing a roof, ensuring that our customers get the best roof replacement in Omaha.
This project was a very large roof on a building owned by Minnehaha County in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. About 900 bundles of shingles, 43 roof vents, 300 linear feet of valley, and more than 1,000 linear feet of drip edge and gutter apron had to be delivered by a boom crane to the top of the roof. The Johnson Roofing & Construction crew of more than 20 tradesmen diligently removed the existing layer of shingles, replaced decking in various spots, and installed underlayment, ice & water shield, flashings, and new shingles in less than one week. This project is a great showcase of how Johnson Roofing & Construction can handle even the largest commercial roof replacements. Also, the County required additional warranties as part of its public bid process - all of which were exceeded by our standard 10 year warranty on all workmanship, something that we offer to all our commercial and residential clients.
