We recently replaced a roof in Ridgefield, Connecticut. The old roof was covered in algae and had water damage through to the roof deck. Additionally, the chimney flashing and skylights were in rough shape and in need of replacement.
The homeowner approached us to take on the project in total. After conducting a thorough inspection, the team at George’s Seamless Gutters and The Roofing Pros of Westchester got to work on replacing the roof, drip edge, skylights and chimney flashing.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the process and different aspects of the Ridgefield, CT, roof replacement project, from planning and execution to the impact on the home’s look, feel, and function.

Have you ever wondered what goes into a roof replacement project?
We recently completed a roof replacement job in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and we’re excited to share the details with you!
Our team replaced the entire roofing system, including the roof deck, which included installing new plywood, new copper chimney flashing, added an ice and water shield (which is a fancy way of describing the underlayment membrane developed to protect vulnerable areas on a roof from ice and water damage) installed a new aluminum drip edge, replaced the old skylights with new skylights, and topped it all off with an industry-leading GAF Timberline HDZ shingle roof.
As with all of our roofing installations, this roof was installed in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. The finished product looks fantastic!

Ridgefield Roof Replacement Project Objectives:
As with most roof updates, the project’s primary goal was home safety, followed by visual appeal. Every home improvement project no matter how practical should boost curb appeal. This aging roof was not doing its primary job: protecting the home from the elements; it was starting to leak along with its chimney and skylight.
The primary objective of the Ridgefield, Connecticut, roof replacement project was to update the aging roof of the homeowners’ house.
The existing roof was deteriorating and in need of replacement, which could result in leaks and other issues.
We worked closely with the homeowners to determine the best course of action for the roof replacement project.
Planning and Execution
The planning and execution process for the Ridgefield, Connecticut, roof replacement project was meticulous and thorough.
We followed strict manufacturer specifications for each aspect of the project to ensure optimal performance and longevity of the new roof, new skylights and copper chimney flashing.
We carefully removed the old roof to avoid damage to the home and installed new plywood to replace the old, worn-out roof deck. We installed new copper chimney flashing to prevent leaks around the chimney, a common problem in older homes.
To further protect the roof, we installed an ice and water shield and aluminum drip edge. The ice and water shield provides a barrier against ice and water infiltration. At the same time, the aluminum drip edge helps to channel water away from the roof and prevent damage to the fascia and soffits.
We also installed new skylights to bring more natural light into the home. Installing skylights requires precision and attention to detail, as any mistakes can lead to leaks and other issues down the line. However, our team has extensive experience in skylight installation and was able to complete the job flawlessly.
Finally, we topped the roof with GAF Timberline HDZ, laminated, architectural-style algae-resistant shingles. These shingles provide superior durability and protection against algae growth, a common problem in humid areas like Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Ridgefield Replacement Project Results:
The results of the Ridgefield, Connecticut, roof replacement project are outstanding. The new roof provides superior protection against the elements and enhances the home’s curb appeal. The GAF Timberline HDZ shingles add depth and dimension to the roof, while the skylights bring more natural light into the home.
We delivered a high-quality finished product that met and exceeded the homeowners’ expectations. The new roof is built to last, providing homeowners with peace of mind and protection against the elements for many years.
