New Construction Roofing vs. Roof Replacement

Installing a roofing system on a brand-new home or business is a much different task than re-roofing an existing roof structure. As a result, we use specialized processes to install roofing systems on new builds.

For example, we must evaluate the floor plan, dimensions, and shape of the construction to determine the optimal roofing system. We must also install the roof’s framework, covering, and underlayment, which is a task that is already completed in a roof replacement job.

Because new construction roofing is a highly complex, specialized process, working with an experienced team of roofing professionals is essential.

Our New Roof Construction Process

Step 1: Determining Roofing Work Requirements & Laying the Foundation

When a customer requests our expertise on a new construction roofing project, a licensed technician will conduct a site visit to evaluate their needs. If they are building a new roof for an entirely new structure, we will help them draft blueprints while listening to their design goals. Then, we will have the information necessary to begin laying the framework, covering, and underlayment to support the new roofing material.

Step 2: Weather-Sealing Your New Construction Roofing

Building new construction roofing involves designing weather-sealing elements to protect you, your family, and your customers from harsh weather.
Our technicians will install drip edges on your residential roof or commercial property, preventing rainwater from streaming down your exterior walls. We use high-quality underlayment on every new construction project to stop ice dams from forming and strong winds from pushing water into the framework.
We will also install tar paper to create a roof covering beneath your new shingles that is highly resistant to fire. Finally, installing waterproof valleys will complete the entire building envelope of weather sealing, as they will deflect water away from sensitive areas.

Step 3: Shingle and Flashing Installation on a Brand New Roofing System

Finding a reputable roofing contractor involves looking for experts that can install shingles correctly, no matter how unique the roofing project is. Our technicians will install shingles in an overlapping arrangement to maximize insulation capabilities and the energy efficiency of your new roof. We will also install metal flashing to deflect water from windows, chimneys, vents, and other roof structures.

Step 4: Ensuring That Everything is Installed Properly

Roof installation can be tricky, and roof replacement even more. We conduct a final inspection on all brand-new roofs we work on to ensure that everything is working correctly and that you see lower numbers on your energy bills.
