New Roof Installation Process

Before we install the new roof, we will send a professional roofer to your home to inspect the existing roof, flashing, and damage. If your gutters have cracks or dents, we may recommend replacing your gutters. If you want the gutters replaced, we will replace those at the same time as your roof.

Next, we will formulate a roofing replacement plan that fits within your budget and works with your schedule. Once we agree on a detailed plan, the residential roof replacement process can begin. Keep in mind that the method may vary slightly depending on the damage and type of roof you have.

Preparing the Roof

The first job of installing your residential roofing involves covering your siding, plants, and bushes with a tarp to prevent damage from falling debris. We will ensure the job site is safe before repairs and replacements. We will then begin to remove the old roof. You can expect us to remove all the old material, including the old shingles and drip edge.

Inspect Wood Decking

Next, we will inspect the wood decking to check for old, rotted, or soft spots. The wood decking foundation must be solid because it keeps the new shingles and roofing structure sturdy. Then, our technicians will inspect the wood sheeting, ensure that it is properly attached, and check for missing nails.

Installation of Ice and Water Shield

The next step involves the optional installation of an ice and water shield. The ice and water shield provides a protective barrier that stops melting ice from penetrating the wood decking and shingles. If the sheathing absorbs the water, it can cause irreversible damage.
After the shield is in place, we will cover the roof with roofing felt. Roofing felt stops the shingles from sticking to the wood decking. We also use starter shingles for added protection against water.

Installation of Metal Drip Edge

A technician will start installing the roofing paper to cover the roof sheathing and provide a protective layer. The paper stops any water from entering the house and is typically stapled into place. Next, we will nail the metal drip edge over the ice and water shield and roofing paper.

Installation of New Shingles

Once the base of the roof is ready, we will begin installing the new shingle roof. We generally apply the shingles working from the bottom of the roof, then moving towards the top.

Apply Flashing

After we have installed the shingles, we will apply the flashing. We will use a roofing caulk that seals areas where leaks are common, such as around skylights, chimneys, stack vents, and other roof penetrations and roof connections.

Installation of Ridge Vents

A technician will install the vents to help the air circulation in the attic. Proper ventilation also helps to prevent ice dams by exhausting hot air.

Clean Up and Final Inspection

After we have installed all the materials, our technicians will remove all the materials and discard any debris. We will ensure the home is left spotless and perform a thorough inspection of your new roof for safety and peace of mind.

Roofing Material

Choosing new roofing materials can be difficult when factoring in which option provides the most benefits and fits within your budget. 

The most common material homeowners choose is an asphalt composition shingle roof. Individuals choose asphalt shingles because they are usually the most affordable shingle option. However, if you are looking for more durable shingles and are willing to spend more money, wood shingles are a great alternative.
