Shamrock Roofing recently got the opportunity to be part of a bargain mansion remodel for HGTV’s hit show, Bargain Mansions, hosted by Kansas City’s own Tamara Day. Bargain Mansions focuses on Day’s quest for large, run-down, neglected homes that no one wants to touch. She and her team of experts bring these old beauties back to life, restoring them to their former glory – or better.
Garen Armstrong, owner of Shamrock Roofing, says it was super-exciting to be a part of something so big. He’s happy that Shamrock could be involved in making this fixer-upper beautiful again.
This bargain mansion, located in the Lakewood community of Lee’s Summit, needed a new roof as part of its facelift, and Shamrock Roofing came to the rescue. Due to HOA restrictions, the old roof had to b
e replaced with a composite roof. Wood shingles – which is what the original roof was comprised of – are no longer allowed in this community. Shamrock Roofing installed a luxury GAF roofing system that fits the style of the home perfectly, adding an extra touch of class to the overall appearance of the home. Tune in to see which Luxury Roofing System they choose for Bargain Mansions.
Shamrock can handle it.
The Shamrock roofers had their work cut out for them. The old roof – or roofs, in this case – had to come off first. It turned out that there were two wood shake roofs on the house. The second one had been laid over the top of the first one – not the most efficient way to install a new roof. Both layers had to be torn off before a new layer of sheathing could be put on. Shamrock then put down an ice and water barrier, followed by a synthetic underlayment. After all that was done, the luxury GAF Camelot slate-look shingles were installed.
Armstrong says they didn’t stop there. The next step in the process was to install seamless ridge vents to maximize airflow throughout the roofing system. And finally, all the pipe jacks were spray-painted to match the color of the roofing material. The result is a beautiful new slate-look roof that will protect this home – and the family who eventually lives in it – for many years to come.
This Lakewood home – with its brand-new roof from Shamrock Roofing – will be featured in an episode of Bargain Mansions sometime in March of next year. To watch, stay tuned to https://www.diynetwork.com/shows/bargain-mansions.
