Jordan Roofing, Inc. has been in business since 1976. This may not sound interesting to some people, but ask the next roofing company how long they have been in business. You might be surprised to find out that there are not too many that have been established for over 40 years! We believe that our reputation speaks for itself. Our company is family owned and operated. It is small enough for you to know us by our first names, but large enough to handle any commercial or residential need you may have.

We at Jordan Roofing understand that there are many ways to roof, but the only was we roof is the RIGHT way! This is why we have put together this list of installation procedures so you can better understand how we do the job right the first time.

  1. Metal Work
    • Drip edge 1 ¾" D-style
      1. Wrap all corners (as opposed to butting them together and creating a seam)
      2. Run full 10' pieces whenever possible, keeping seams to a minimum.
      3. Pull all gutter screws and spikes (not cutting around them)
      4. Miter laps at gable peak (not leaving excess metal
    • Chimney Flashing (aluminum)
      1. Install 5"x5" front aluminum pan
      2. Step flash side walls with 8x8" aluminum weaved between shingles
      3. 5x19" back pan
      4. All flashing which meets at a corner is extended by ¼" to kick water away from trouble areas and sealed with a 50yr silicone adhesive/sealant.
      5. Counter flashing is cut into the chimney with ¼" diamond tipped blade and sealed with 50yr silicone.
    • Step Flashing
      1. All step flashing is installed between shingles just above the tar line. This prevents premature curling.
  2. Underlayments
    • Ice & Water Shield
      1. 6' applied to all eave edges as a minimum, or 2' into heated areas, whichever is greater, and including slope.
      2. Valley- 3' in all valleys
      3. Obstructions- Ice and water shield around all obstuctions, penetrations, chimneys, etc.
  3. Shingle Application
    • Starter: Use of sure-start starter shingles ¼" past drip edge
    • Bleeders: use of sure-start starter as bleeders along the rakes for strength and clean lines. This helps prevent water intrusion and loss of a clean roof line if shingles shrink.
    • Shingles
      1. Exposures: 5" standard, 5 5/8" metric
      2. Lap: Horizontal 5" minimum
      3. Nailing: 5 nails per shingle, storm nail rakes
    • Ridge Cap
      1. Factory cut accessory cap on all laminated applications
      2. Cut 3 in 1s on all three tab applications
    • Ventilation
      1. 1 ½" Space is cut on each side of the ridge or proper ventilation (as opposed to cutting only one side)
      2. Baffled Ridge Vent
        • Baffles prevent weather infiltration
        • Installed with 3" aluminum nails hand nailed to prevent dimples
      3. Can Vents
        • 3' of ice and water shield used to enlarge flange
  4. Tear-Off
    • Protection
      1. Using tarps and plywood to protect siding and landscaping
      2. A large magnet is run over your yard at the end of each day to pick up any loose metal objects that may not have made it to the dump trailer
    • Dump Trailer
      1. Material is collected and hauled to a certified recycler
