How We Install Asphalt Shingle Roofs
When we are called to put on new shingles, the first step is to inspect the roof. We look for spots that have extra damage, and check the roof’s general condition. Then, we tell you what we found. Fixing damaged spots during a re-roof ensures that the new roof will last a long time. It also keeps costs down.
Next, we work with you to decide on the correct warranty level. Prices and warranty length tend to rise together. If you intend to stay in your home for many years, it’s worth it to get the best warranty that fits your budget.
You also get to choose the color of your new roofing. Each warranty level has its own set of choices. We’ll show you the sample book for the level you’ve chosen.
With all of that done, we start work. First, we pull off all of the material above the roof deck. Then, we fix any rotted roof deck areas that we find.
Once we have a good surface exposed, we begin to install the new roof covering. This is called a “roofing system” because it isn’t just shingles. It has layers of felt, insulation, and ice-protection layers. After these layers are on, the shingles are finally put on.
Finally, we haul all of the debris away.
