New roof installation is a critical investment into the property. The importance of the project lies not just in the big amount of money it calls for but also in the impact it has on the safety of your family/employees and personal belongings or business equipment.
You cannot afford to make wrong decisions, whether due to ignorance or haste. Besides making an effort and taking the time to find an expert, reliable roofing contractor to work with, it helps to understand the roof replacement process.
We are happy to help make the project of getting a new roof for your residential or commercial building as easy as possible with a step-by-step explanation of how the installation process works. When you hire us to replace an old, worn-out, or damaged roofing system, here is how our crew goes about the job.
Safeguarding the property and landscape
It is essential to ensure the protection of your yard, landscaping, siding, windows, doors, etc. Lawn furniture and potted plants can be brought inside; vehicles are best parked in the street; doors/windows can be closed, and protective covers put up on the exterior walls to avoid damage from the falling dirt and debris.
Removal of the existing roof
The roofers take out all the old roof shingles to make way for the new ones. They work diligently so that the job gets completed without any accidental property damage or personal injury.
Inspection of the decking
The wood decking under the shingles is then closely inspected to confirm that it is in good shape. If any wet or rotting portions are detected, these are replaced to ensure the structural integrity of the new roof is not compromised.
Preparation for installing the new roof
After the decking is ready, drip edges and underlayment are installed to keep the rain, snow, and ice out. Roofing felt is also installed so that the shingles do not stick to the wood.
New Roof installation
Now comes the actual installation of the new roofing system. As the property owner, you have to decide which roofing materials or products to invest in. The job of the roofers is to work with meticulous attention to detail to ensure that it is installed correctly.
Job site clean up
True professionals do not leave behind any mess from the roof replacement work. The old roofing materials, nails, and other debris are swept up and removed, leaving your property cleaned up.
