Measuring and Preparing for Roofing Installation
Before we begin gathering the materials for your new roof, we first measure your roof in order to determine how much in materials and labor that it will take to complete the roofing installation process. Once this is determined, we will assist you in selecting the right materials for your home taking into consideration the style of your home, curb appeal and budget. Afterward, you will receive an estimate and upon approval, we will order the materials and then assign a crew needed to do the job.
Removing the Old Roofing Materials
Before getting started on installing your new roof, the old roofing materials need to be taken up. Here we will be able to see as well if there are any rotting boards that need to be replaced, and loose boards that need reinforcing. We sweep up everything, including dirt and old nails, so we can start with a clean base.
Next, we install your underlay. This is simply a layer that goes underneath the roofing material you’ve chosen and offers an extra layer of protection and reinforcement for your new roof. Ask us what materials we will use for the underlay of your new roof.
Finally, we install your shingles. Using chalk or another planning technique, we guide our way through getting the right fit and measurement for your shingles and roof. Also, depending on the area of your roof depends on the type of shingles we use to conform to the shape and slope of your roof.
