Old shingles curling up on roof in Iowa City

An Iowa City home owner interested in roof repair contacted the Five Star Home Improvement experts for help with a leaky roof. The old shingles were curling up, letting water into the roof and into the house. Our experienced contractors reassured the homeowner that this is a common problem with older roofs, and that we had years of experience fixing leaking roofs.

We installed a beautiful new Owen Corning asphalt roof, which is a very durable and attractive roofing option. Asphalt is a popular roofing material because it’s affordable while also offering durable protection with a wide variety of textures and looks. This particular asphalt roof also came with our 50 year warranty.

Leaky Old Roof in Iowa City

Recently, a local Iowa City family found our information online through a Google search and gave us a call. They are a growing family and were undergoing an extensive remodeling project. Part of the project was adding a new addition out the back of their home. There goals were to minimize costs and get a great blended result from the old roof to the new.

Unfortunately The original roof had suffered from years of sporadic leaks. When we inspected the roof, we noticed these leaks were fairly significant. Instead of short-term repairs and the difficult task of blending the distressed roof with the new install, we offered to fully replace the roof so the result would look and function as it should.

The family agreed with our suggestion and asked us to perform the new install of the entire roof. We tore off the old roof while taking care of his property surrounding his home. Once the job was finished, the client made sure to tell us how impressed he was with the new look of the roof. He continued by saying, “I am very impressed with how you took extra care of my lawn and plants. Thanks again.”
