A roof replacement enhances both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your residential property. Not only does it help the home stand out in the neighborhood, but also ensures its protection against the harsh elements. Like any other home improvement project, replacing a roof involves a step-by-step process.
ATD Restoration, one of the top roofing contractors in the local area, explains what goes on in a typical roof replacement.
Preparing the Home
Once you agreed to work with a local roofing company, the first thing the latter would do is to make preparations around your home prior to the installation. Expect the pros to take measures to protect both the inside and outside of the property. Garbage containers may be set up near the work zone for easy disposal of old roofing materials. New shingles are also delivered around this time.
Part of the preparations for residential roofing pros involves making sure the work area does not have any obstructions. That said, it is important for homeowners to do their part as well. Ask the roofers if you should relocate your pets. Be sure to leave the gate open for the roofers to enter and exit your home. Discuss any special requests you might have with them and let the people in charge know ahead of time.
Installing and Putting Up Finishing Touches
Roof installation begins once the old roofing material has been removed. Roofers will work from the bottom up, starting with starter shingles on the bottom and the sides. They will make sure the entire structure has the rigidity to hold up the shingles and underlayment that will be installed. The replacement process goes on for days or weeks, depending on the scope of the project.
Once all shingles, flashings and other components have been installed, the roofers will walk you through the finished product. They will be disposing of the waste materials and remove drop cloths or tarps that cover a large part of your home’s exterior.
