Roof installation & Replacement
You don’t really see it much, and you don’t necessarily “use” it, so it is easy to forget about your home’s roof. There are also almost certainly other home improvement projects where you would much rather spend your money. But you know how important a roof is — it literally protects everything in your home — and so do we.
KB Carpentry is an exterior home remodeling company and roofing contractor serving Plymouth, the South Shore and Cape Cod. Exterior renovations are our primary focus. We don’t just say we do new roof installations and roof replacements. We actually have a proven track record of successfully completing this specific type of job on time and on budget. KB Carpentry also has the equipment to install a roof quickly and efficiently without damaging a home or the plantings around it.
Asphalt Roof Replacement
If your asphalt roof is more than 30 old, it is likely at or near the end of its lifespan. The material may also be standard three-tab asphalt shingles, which were the budget-friendly workhorse of the industry late in the last century and in the early 2000s. Since then, “architectural” or “dimensional” asphalt shingles have become the standard. Made of two-plus layers of asphalt, they are slightly pricier but have a much longer average lifespan. As the name indicates, the increased thickness adds more dimension to a roof, giving your home a polished, upscale look.
We are also skylight contractors. When you replace your roof, consider upgrading your old milky skylights with crystal clear replacements, or adding new light sources entirely, such as a sun tunnel.
I have an old home that was leaking water for a few years, with some interior and exterior rot. I couldn’t find anyone to touch it, until I contacted KB Carpentry. First project was complete roof and exterior trim replacement. Next, interior structural renovation, with new wall and ceiling framing, door and window replacement. Lastly, 13 new windows, and finish all remaining exterior siding. All work top notch, punctual, tidy, communicative, exceeded all expectations, and the house looks great! Thanks Ken.
