Henry Fetta contacted Len Roofing to replace 2 windows in his two-story home with a brick front. These windows did not have thermal properties or operate well since they were installed with the original house. When replacing the windows, Henry asked us to assess his home’s siding and roof. At the time, our team did not think the siding and roofing needed to be replaced, so we focused on the windows.
A few years later, Henry called Len Roofing to help replace his home’s leaking roof. The existing asphalt roof was old, there were substantial amounts of staining, the roof sustained granule loss, and there were moisture spots on the interior of the roof. Henry picked the right time to replace his roof; if he had waited any longer, it would have leaked more, resulting in more time, money, and effort to complete the job.
Eight years after replacing Henry’s windows, he contacted Len Roofing once more. This time, his home needed new siding. Now, the siding was leaking and warping, the color was faded, and there were visible cracks and nail heads protruding from the siding.
There was one distinct challenge associated with each project (windows, roof, siding).
Henry wanted his windows to match his home’s style since we were only replacing two windows. He also sought reasonably priced windows with thermal properties. The Fetta family liked their asphalt roof and wanted a simple replacement. They considered several materials for his siding, including vinyl and composite materials. The family’s only requirement was to select any material except wood.
Henry Chose vinyl windows that satisfied all of his criteria, and the windows were easy to install. We replaced the two windows in a few hours, and Henry and his wife were pleased with the result.
For the roofing project, we removed the old asphalt and installed a fresh asphalt roof. We were able to complete this job within 14 hours. During the process, we repaired minor damage to the interior layers of the home, installed more ventilation to improve the new roof’s longevity, and replaced the flashings and edgings with brand new products. Once again, Fetta’s family was impressed and satisfied with the quality and efficiency of our work.
To complete the siding project, Henry opted for a vinyl siding because it was similar to the existing color, which they liked. The vinyl was also more economical relative to the other materials. Once the materials arrived, Len Roofing set the date to replace the siding. Unfortunately, Henry’s family was traveling when we replaced their siding. While this posed a risk, as many homeowners prefer to be present as we make progress, our team shared photos and communicated with the family via email to ensure they were a part of the process. Over the course of 10 days, we replaced the siding and added vapor and moisture barriers with no issues. The Fettas were grateful for our updates and communication throughout the process. They loved their new siding and were happy with the quality of work.
Len Roofing completed these three projects over the span of eight years.
