Roof Installation Services

When it comes to improving a home there are not many things that are more important than the roof. The roof protects homeowners’ most valuable items from the outside world. It is also the last line of defense against Mother Nature’s harshest weather conditions. Most homeowners have spent hours looking at roofs and a lot of time discussing their roofs with those closest to them. Nonetheless, how much time do homeowners truly think about how long it takes to plan and install a new roof?

What to Expect

For some homeowners, the unknown can be overwhelming. Understanding the process of installing a roof can help ease the worries. The following are four steps for installing a new roof.

1. Remove the Old Roof

This part of the process needs to be done thoroughly since the roofer has to make sure the new roof is installed right. The professional roofer will start by removing the old shingles, nails, and tar paper. If needed, the roofer will also replace any damaged areas.

2. Prepare the Roof for Installation

Homeowners should not take on the project of installing a new roof by themselves. This type of job requires the help of a professional, especially since it is a major investment. Factors that need to be taken into consideration include the climate and the home’s structure. A professional roofing company will help homeowners through the whole process, from materials to choosing a roofing style to the installation process. 

3. Install New Shingles

Anyone who is not familiar with installing new roof shingles will find the process stressful. However, the process is straightforward and fairly easy when it is understood. First, the roof will need to be prepared by removing all the old shingles, nails, staples, and other debris.

4. Clean Debris from the Yard

The first thing to do when maintaining a roof is to check if there is any debris or vegetation on it. Some debris could be a result of wind and other natural elements. If the debris is difficult to remove alone, homeowners should call a professional to help. If there is a lot of debris, then the roof will need to be cleaned, preferably by a professional to prevent injuries. If the debris is not removed quickly, it can cause damage to the roof and major problems later.

Roof Installation

Installing a new roof usually takes two days to complete. As soon as the old roof is taken off, the underlayment is placed. The underlayment is a layer of felt, tar paper, and plywood or OSB. After that, a layer of felt is placed down and the underlayment nails are removed. Then the plywood with the deck screws are installed, and finally, the shingles are installed.

Roofing installation services should always be performed by a fully trained and qualified team of roofers that are up to date on the latest roof installation techniques. This knowledge will provide homeowners with a roof that will have a long lifespan.
