Have you ever owned a home that has a roof valley where 3 low sloping roofs join together? Your answer might be no, but this was exactly the case for a homeowner in Blue Bell, PA. Low sloping roofs can be a problem for asphalt shingles and roof valleys where multiple roofs converge. That is where the problem solvers at Global Home Improvement came in. Not only did we install a mechanically seamed metal roof throughout the house, but we designed a stainless steel valley that was soldered together to prevent any possibility of a leak.

This charming home in Plainfield, NJ received a complete roof makeover including new Owens Corning Duration Shingles as well as a Standing Seam Roof replacement over the front porch.

At Global Home Improvement, we are more than just a contractor, we are an exterior solutions company that can help transform any home.
To start the project we removed 2 layers of asphalt and cedar shake shingles and installed new 5/8 inch plywood before installing our lifetime Standing Seam Metal roof.

The whole house then received half round gutters to match the forest green metal roof. Finally, we installed a custom painted snow guards to complete the look of this Wynnewood Metal Roof.

You would be surprised how many homeowners lose sleep over bees that burrow into their wood siding or a wood pecker that wakes them up. James Hardie Siding solves all those headaches and will upgrade the look of your home’s exterior… Guaranteed!

As you can see by the first picture, the solar connections are hidden under the ridge vent which is customer fabricated by our expert metal roofing installers. Global Home Improvement is the area's premier metal roofing company and can handle your solar project as well.
