A Basic Guide to the Re-Roofing Process

Is your roof on its last legs? Then it may be time to consider re-roofing your entire home. While this may seem like a huge task, it can be fairly straightforward and simple with proper roofing. Here’s a basic outline of what you can expect from the re-roofing process.

1. Hire a Great Roofing Company

A great re-roofing project begins with a great roofing company. There are many advantages to hiring a reputable company to replace your roof. In addition to having peace of mind that your roof will turn out great, you’ll get an exceptional level of customer service, as well as a wider variety of roofing options. Never trust a roofing company that is unlicensed, uninsured, or does work under the table!

2. Choose Your Roofing Materials

With help from your roofing contractor, you’ll choose the right roofing materials that complement your home’s architecture and fit your budget.

3. Prepare Your Property

Roofing is a very hectic process, involving many workers and moving materials. Preparing the perimeter of your home is important to preventing property damage or injury due to falling objects.

4. Removing and Inspecting Your Old Roof

To properly install your new roof, the old one must be removed. This includes the old roof felt or other sub-roof. Your roof will then be inspected to ensure that it’s ready to receive new roofing.

5. Installing the New Roof

Finally, it’s time to install your roof. First the new roof felt is installed to protect your roof from water. Next the roofing material you choose will be installed. The entire re-roofing process can take between several days and a week, depending on the size of your roof.
