Camelot II vs. Slateline, a GAF Shingle comparison.
Asphalt shingles are a popular install & roofing material for many homeowners…
Are you a resident of Randolph NJ with a roof that was installed before the year 2000? If so, then there’s some information you need to see. Roofs installed before the turn of the century have a lifespan of only 20 years. With 2020 rapidly approaching, that means that all roofs installed in the last millennium will need to be replaced.

Roof replacement is something that a lot of homeowners tend to put off. But why wait until water is pouring into your attic, warping support beams and fostering the growth of dangerous mold? If you see any of the following warning signs, then it’s time to be proactive.
Utilizing seven effective steps, the team at Blue Nail discards your former roof and installs a new one that will last a lifetime. We are proud to bring our proven process to the residents of Randolph.
What do we do to install our guaranteed roofs?
Step 1: PLANNING – We lay out a fool proof roofing plan after taking initial measurements of your existing structure. Once we know how much space we’re working with, we can provide an accurate estimation of time and price.
Step 2: REMOVAL – We go in and remove your old roof. Once the old roof is gone we are able to continue, replacing it with one that will last for decades.
Step 3: SHEATHING – The trusses and beams of your roof create its shape, but sheathing lays down a foundation upon which we build. We check the condition of the existing sheathing and replace where needed.
Step 4: ICE AND WATER GUARDING – Leaks are the single greatest threat to a roof. So, we’re incredibly thorough in our ice and water guarding process. We will make sure that no moisture can seep through, causing damage to your home. Most roofing companies only use one row of guard, but we use two. If there are ice damming issues and only one row of ice and water shields we will correct the issue by adding another row around the eaves of the roof. This is a major step for homes with overhangs and should be taken care of as soon as possible.
Step 5: UNDERLAYMENT – We use synthetic underlay on top of the sheathing to make a solid base for shingling. This stops water from entering the home during a storm that could blow off shingles.
Step 6: FLASHING – Our leak prevention strategy receives its second and final step here. Flashing is applied upon the rising portions of your roof, including all corners and around the bottom of the chimney for maximum protection.
Step 7: SHINGLES – We overlay our shingles, starting at the base and rising up the slope of the roof as we go. We use nails rather than staple guns to ensure maximum hold.
