"We had hail damage last Spring which totalled the roof on our house. I called Nathan at Covenant and was very pleased with his professionalism and the extent that he helped us through the entire process. He also suggested several helpful upgrades and recommended the highest quality materials. The roofing crew were very respectful and cleaned up the property when they were finished. They did an excellent job on the roof."
Radiant barrier Plywood sheathing
At Covenant we pride ourselves in staying current on new products that benefit our customers. As one example, Radiant Barrier decking makes sense in terms of energy efficiency. As energy costs continue to increase, radiant barrier decking is a viable option for homeowners who are looking long-term and want to lower their energy costs year to year. This material is similar to a standard sheet of OSB plywood; however, on the side facing the attic, foil is adhered to the plywood to help prevent heat from making its way into the house.
Installing this material is estimated to reduce monthly cooling costs by as much as 15-20%. The most practical use for this application, is where wood shake roofs with spaced decking are converted to a new composite or other shingle system. However, we are not limited to only this application and, upon homeowner request, we can install this material and help improve the efficiency of your home.

Radiant barrier Installation
At Covenant we look beyond your roof and examine options to help our homeowners increase the efficiency in their homes. Having our technician install a radiant barrier in your attic over your existing insulation serves a two-fold purpose: (1) In the winter, it holds the heat in and reduces your heatings costs; (2) In the summer, its reflective properties keep the heat from warming up the insulation and keeps the living space below cooler. Results may vary per household; however, reports suggest as much as a 25-40 degree temperature decrease, lowering homeowners utility costs.
installing soffit baffles and ventilation
At Covenant, we believe attic baffles are essential in many homes today. Newer homes are less drafty than older homes, and interior moisture can be a concern. One example of increased moisture in the attic is when there are multiple bathroom exhaust fans emptying into the attic space, which is not vented properly from the soffits to the ridge. We routinely find this in larger homes that are more gabled or segmented.
Often times when the insulation is sprayed in an attic, the installer does not account for the soffit or intake vents, and simply applies the insulation over them. This blocks air intake into the attic space, and can lead to the formation of mold and wood rot. In most cases we find out only after the damage has already been done.
To install the baffle, our technician staples the baffle in between the rafters and positions the mouth of the baffle over the top of the soffit vent so that the intake air will remain unobstructed, pushing the warmer air out through the exhaust vents, such as a ridge vent or standard box vent.
