Atlas Chalet Repair

, ,

I’m sure you’ve had a few knocks on your door if you have a Chalet shingle on your roof. Here’s why roofing contractors are targeting Atlas Chalet shingles for replacement or repairs around Atlanta.

In 2010, Atlas Roofing Corporation announced their Chalet line of shingles would be discontinued.

• The Atlas Chalet shingle had a 30-year Limited Warranty when it was being produced.
• This would now equate to a limited lifetime warranty for a similar shingle today.

The Chalet shingle had been a very successful shingle product for many years. The design of the Chalet was to mirror that of an architectural shingle except it was a three tab shingle. The shingle’s granules were distributed to give the shingle a raised area which made it appear dimensional. However, the long-term durability of the shingle proved to be a major issue.

Many Chalet roofs had severe cracking, blistering, and early granule loss. Cracks can be seen on this Chalet shingle picture.

What do I do if I have an Atlas Chalet shingle on my roof?

Bad News – The Chalet can’t be purchased so if you need a repair done, it cannot be matched.

Good News – If you need a repair as a result of storm damage, your homeowner’s insurance would pay for a complete replacement as they recognize these shingles are discontinued. Unless you have Allstate as they state that a Chalet roof can be repaired. This is, of course, illogical as the Chalet is discontinued, defective, unavailable, and a different size shingle than any comparable shingle today.

Any attempt of repairing the shingles would do more damage and cause the roof to look like a checkerboard. No reputable contractor would warrant such a repair.

Common AC Line Mistakes

A few times a year, we will receive a phone call where occasionally an air conditioner contractor will have installed the refrigerant piping too close to the underside of a roof deck. When the roof is replaced, a nail happens to puncture the line which causes freon to leak and your air conditioner to stop blowing cool air.

 

 

Whose at fault? The roofer or the air conditioner contractor?
