Let's get the bad stuff out of the way: Wind-driven rain, melting snow, and ice dams, a common problem in New England, are just some of the ways water can your enter your home if your shingles, shingle underlayment, or flashing aren't in perfect shape. And there are all sorts of problems that come with water infiltration, from structural damage and the threat of fire from shorted wires to health problems associated with the growth of mold and mildew.
Not to mention energy costs.
Fortunately, the signs of a problem roof are easy to spot: internal or blistering or peeling paint; stains on interior walls and ceiling; dark patches from fungus or mold; missing, curling, buckling, or cracked shingles.
If you see any of these problems, it's time to visit A. Boilard Sons.

Ideal Roofing has been an industry leader in the manufacturing of quality steel roofing and siding products since 1929.
An economical and durable solution, Fabral metal barn roofs come in a variety of architectural design styles.
Felt paper or asphalt felt paper, roofing felt is made of fibers that are matted under pressure. Typical uses of felt paper are as an underlayment beneath roofing and siding materials, where it can provide secondary protection against water. Another option would be synthetic, which also serves as a vapor barrier. It also provides safer footing while applying shingles and can be left longer exposed to the weather.
Especially important in vulnerable areas, such as vents, dormers, eave and rake edges, chimneys, valleys, and skylights, ice and water shield underlayment products are easy to apply and good for use under almost all roofs.
Poor venting can keep moisture in, causing your heating and cooling system to work overtime and sending your energy bills literally through the roof. Choices include synthetic and aluminum ridge vent as well as wooden and aluminum gable vents. Come into A. Boilard Sons for venting materials and keep the air flowing.
