Genesis Exteriors is unique among area contractors for having a fulltime Quality Control Supervisor whose primary responsibility is ensuring that the best industry practices are used on your project. These practices minimally include:
- Those general installation standards recommended by the country’s leading manufacturers of roofing, siding, window, door, and gutter products
- Specific installation standards as required by the manufacturer of your particular roofing, siding, window, door, or gutter products
Working closely with the Project Manager assigned to your project, our Quality Control Supervisor effectively provides you with a “second layer” of assurance that your work will be completed to the highest standards: neatly, efficiently, and on time.
Hand hammering or power nail guns?
The familiar sound of power nail guns is closely associated with Madison roofing contractors. But using one isn’t just a matter of aiming at the shingle and firing. Experience counts—a lot.
Depending on a host of considerations, securing various kinds of shingles to different kinds of substrate requires varying degrees of impact to the nail head, even from shingle to shingle. Set the gun too “high” and the nail head will penetrate the shingle, causing it to leak. Set the gun too “low” and the shingles will be blown from the roof by the first Wisconsin winter wind.
Not only that—sometimes a simple hammer is the best thing to use. This is particularly true on very steep surfaces such as an A-frame or mansard roof. Trying to hold shingle after shingle in exact position on a steep surface while firing a high-powered nail gun almost guarantees that some will be out of alignment or otherwise improperly installed.
With thousands of exterior projects under our belt, you can rest assured that our Quality Control Supervisor will specify the best method for your specific style of roof and its particular kind of shingle.
