Residential Roof Replacement
At Rock Top, we design each roof system as if it were our own. We use high-quality GAF HD Timberline Shingles, Ice and Water underlayment, and valley metal where needed. We evaluate parts of the roof that may require the use of radiant heat technology. We also look for ways to ensure the attic can be properly ventilated to preserve the life of the roof and well as improve energy efficiencies for the home.
When asking for estimates on the replacement of your roof, ensure that all the material and installation requirements mentioned above are met to be sure you are getting the best VALUE for your investment.
Roofing systems are the first line of defense in the complete building envelope. Roofing systems must be able to protect a structure from the natural hazards associated with the local environment, including rain, hail, snow, high winds, temperature extremes—even fire.
Wind rushing over a roof, for instance, produces lift, much like an airplane wing. This lift creates tremendous turbulence and dynamic stresses. Powerful eddies and vortices, which resemble horizontal tornadoes, churn along roof perimeters and corners. These forces can rip at roof covers, flashing, insulation and the underlying roof structure.
Salt Lake City Roofing Company
We often want to compare pricing from more than one source before deciding on a major purchase. Having your roof replaced may be one of those times. Unless you have had some experience with roofing and understand state construction requirements that regulate it, you may not be aware of what you are not getting when a contractor is underbidding the value of replacing your roof to get your business.
The State of Utah, Department of Administration’s Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM), provides some standards for roofing. In the DFCM, Roofing Design Requirements, there is a requirement for a minimum manufacturer’s warrantee of 20 years. It is important to note that this manufacturers warrantee is only valid if the roofing system has been properly installed to include adequate ventilation.
Important excerpts from the DFCM for roof replacements include:
- Roofing material manufacturers must have a certified installer/contractor program that includes continuing education.
- The contractor must be legally licensed in the state of Utah and carry liability insurance.
- The existing roof membrane (underlayment) must be removed. That means every layer of shingle must be removed first.
- Roof deck must be evaluated and replaced if needed.
- Any slope less than 4/12 must have full ice and water shield installed.
- Valleys and gutters must be designed so ice dams cannot form.
- Vulnerable rain gutters, downspouts, and internal drain systems are required to have high-quality heat cable that is thermostatically controlled.
- Adequate ventilation must be provided to comply with IBC code. That means not only exhaust but also an equal amount of intake.

I could not be happier about my whole experience with Rock-Top roofing. Brandon, was very deliberate in answering all of our questions and even better, all the information he gave us was exactly how it turned out to be on our claim with our Insurance company. I would recommend Rock-Top to anyone who is looking for an honest company, who is fair, reliable and does a great job!
So greatful for Brandon Madieros for helping me be able to get a new roof and rain gutters. The crew that came where friendly and cleaned up everything by the time I came home. Everyone says it looks like a brand new home. Thank you so much.
