    EAS Invests in Protecting Your Home

    When you are having a new roof installed your home turns into a construction zone, this is scary for most homeowners! EAS Roofing understands and has invested in top-of-the-line equipment to protect your home. 

    The Equipter is an amazing way to ensure that your home is protected. It increases productivity and helps our customers receive roofing services faster and more efficiently. An Equipter is a piece of roofing equipment that is created to lift, tow, dump, and raise. The main function of an Equipter is to move roofing materials easily around the job site and remove debris quickly. For example, instead of having five or six crew members carry your damaged shingles from your roof to the ground, the Equipter does it in one trip. It makes for a much neater and safer work area.

    Weather Tight Chimney Flashing

    Chimney flashing is a type of roof flashing that creates a waterproof seal to protect your chimney and roof from water damage and penetration. Essentially, chimney flashing functions as weather stripping for your chimney and is made up of three major parts: step flashing, counter flashing—also called cap flashing—and base flashing.

    Base flashing is used at the joint between a vertical surface and the roofing surface, in this case, the base of the chimney, guarding against water penetration.

    Proper Installation of Pipe Flashing

    Flashing should be installed properly during initial roof installation. Poor installation can lead to premature roof deterioration. Replacing or repairing damaged flashing can be an ordeal, so it is critical that you choose the right material from the outset. It should be durable, high quality, and compatible with your other roofing materials. Not all flashing materials work well on all roofs. Flashing can also be damaged, even when it has been properly installed, by hazards such as fallen branches or foot traffic.

    The Importance of Ridge Vent

    A ridge vent on the roof serves a very important purpose. When a ridge vent is installed, the damp, warm air that accumulates in the attic has a way to escape. This ventilation prevents your home from gathering excessive moisture that can lead to the formation of mold and mildew.

    Owens Corning Algae Resistance

    Algae growth may cause discoloration on roofs resulting in brown or black streaks on a rooftop.

    Algae may be mistaken for soot, dirt, or tree droppings, most of which typically produce only localized discoloration.

    Dark streaks, or roof discoloration caused by algae, happen in varying degrees across the U.S., especially in areas exposed to warm, humid conditions. It is most widespread in the eastern United States and is commonly found on roofs with northern exposure.

    Asphalt shingles with algae-resistant mineral granules remain the most effective solution available for reducing cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa magma algae growth described above. These products incorporate metals, such as copper-lined mineral granules, to reduce algae growth.

    Experts realized that metals, such as copper, have algae-inhibiting properties after noticing that algae staining was reduced or did not exist beneath metal vents or flashing on a roof.

    Owens Corning offers a complete line of algae-resistant asphalt shingles* that feature StreakGuard® Protection, an algae-inhibiting technology to help reduce algae growth.
