East Fork Roofing did a roof replacement in Reno, NV near the beginning of December of 2017.
There were two buildings for this project. The Reno roofing company that began by removing the old roofing materials and disposing of them. After that, they installed new OSB, charcoal metal drip edge, 15 lb felt and 40-year composition shingles.
The shingles this customer chose were Malarkey Highlander's "Weathered Wood". If you would like to learn more about them, you can head to Malarkey's website by clicking here. (Malarkey has since upgraded their Highlander line to include recycled polymers for added strength and benefits and now calls it Highlander NEX.)

Today's featured roof was replaced by East Fork Roofing, LLC during the early part of August 2017 in Gardnerville, NV.
The original shake roof was past its lifespan, so East Fork Roofing removed it and had it disposed of. After that, we looked over the plywood that was underneath and found everything to be well. Once that was done, new charcoal colored metal drip edge, 15 lb felt and asphalt shingles were installed. The client liked the look of wood, but wanted the benefits of composition shingles, so they chose Malarkey Highlander's "Weathered Wood" color blend. (You can learn more about Malarkey's Highlander line here at their website.)

One of East Fork Roofing's upgrade offerings on all replacement proposals is the option of ridge on rakes. Not all roofing companies in Reno, NV offer this service, but the purpose of this post is to help aid you in the decision of whether or not you want this upgrade for your roofing project.
Upgrading to ridge on rakes adds additional wind protection. That is because each ridge rake piece is nailed to the roof as well as the wood on the rake (which is called the fascia). This does not change the wind warranty provided (130 mph), but will provide added protection. Most customers feel the 130 mph wind warranty is sufficient, which is why adding ridge tends to mostly an aesthetic decision.
Here is a home without ridge on the rakes:
As you can see the roof has a sleek and clean appearance and still has great wind protection.
Here is a home that has ridge on the rakes:
The added ridge pieces brings additional beauty and additional wind protection to the home. One last thing to consider is that ridge on the rakes can create a more complicated experience when the home needs to be painted.
So, what do you think? Is ridge on the rakes for your home or do you prefer the more traditional look of a home without it? Regardless of what you decide, East Fork Roofing is one of the few roofing companies in Reno, NV that does both!
