Windows & Doors
Standard Roofing Company specializes in both roofing and waterproofing.
Many years ago we realized that most of the “leak” calls we received during wind-driven rains were window and door (especially on decks) problems. We referred numerous window and door leak issues to contractors that installed them—with very mixed results.
Since we already had a skilled carpentry crew to repair dry rot and install decks, railings and skylights, it was a simple matter for them to be additionally trained to install doors and windows. We learned very early that not all doors and windows are created equal. As general contractors we quickly developed relationships with quality window manufacturers—ones that sell to the construction trade, not to discount retailers.
You have probably driven from the Mission District in San Francisco to the beach on a summer afternoon? The temperature can be 95° F degrees at 25th and Folsom, and 55° F at 47th Avenue.
The requirements of wind resistance at these locations are also quite different, as are the requirements of wind resistance of West facing versus East facing windows and doors. One size does not fit all!
Do the Whole Job
As roofing contractors, we have learned over the decades that each and every building has its own requirements for waterproofing. As you might imagine, the least expensive window or door probably is not the solution. A name brand, recognizable product, not properly install, is also not the solution. Dry-rotted trim, moldings, flashings, sills, cracked stucco, warped or weathered siding or other defects must be analyzed as part of the problem and be properly repaired
Know Your Products
Many, if not most, windows and door contractors send out salesmen, not technicians, to sell products. We do not employ salesmen. All of our staff came up through the ranks as installers and thoroughly know our products.
Standard Roofing Company is a FULL SERVICE window and door company that sells, delivers and installs windows and doors and all appropriate waterproofing, and GUARANTEES THE WORK FOR 20 YEARS.
