The first step to picking the best roofing contractor for your project is having some idea about the roofing process and how it works. It’s not just about nailing some shingles to your roof, there’s a whole roofing process that keeps you and your home/business safe. Here is a step-by-step guide on what to expect for a typical shingle tear-off and re-installation.
We perform a free visual inspection and identify problem areas on your roof. If possible, we’ll outline repairs that could extend the life of the roof without replacement. But if your roof is too far gone’ we’ll provide a detailed written estimate for replacement.
Upon acceptance of our estimate, we’ll begin the process of obtaining all the necessary permits from the applicable municipal authorities.
We’ll prepare a target start date and estimated completion schedule. Many residential roofs can be completed in just one or two days, and most roofing activities can continue in varied weather conditions.
Materials may be delivered a day or two before the job begins so everything is in place for the job to start. We will let you know soon after contract signing when we will be bringing the materials to your home.
Please remove paintings and photos from interior walls, cover your belongings in the attic, and secure items on shelves.
Work will begin early on the first day, usually around daybreak. Before putting a new roof on, we must tear the old one off. This can be somewhat noisy and messy, but we take steps to minimize the disruption and protect trees and shrubbery. All debris is collected and disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
We’ll inspect your roof deck and repair or replace any loose, missing, or damaged sections with new ones.
The first layer of your new roof is very important for its overall performance. We apply Ice and Water Shield on all gutter edges, valleys, walls, skylights, vents, and pipes.
Flashing is a metal transition that is installed to prevent water from entering the living space.
Proper ventilation is essential to the health of your roof and we strongly recommend proper intake and exhaust ventilation.
We take great care to clean up after ourselves, including collecting all loose roofing nails using a magnet.
