Roofing Installation Process

Below we go into the process we use for our roofing installations and how this allows you piece of mind knowing that the job has been completed with quality in mind!
New Roofing Installations
Regardless you have hired a professional or are thinking of mounting a roof covering your own, understanding the roofing system installment procedure and actions included will undoubtedly help you guarantee your brand-new roofing is correctly installed. Below’s an introduction to the steps needed to install asphalt roof shingles or a metal roof.
If you understand the process and what to anticipate with your roofing system setup, your understanding of the process will be better. Here’s a list of the process that will undoubtedly occur when your professional roofer comes to set up or change your roof covering.
1. Eliminate the Current Roofing
The dated roofing will most likely need to be eliminated before the brand-new roof covering material is established. Many individuals will undoubtedly set up numerous layers of roof covering over top each other to conserve time, yet adding a lot of layers (such as asphalt shingles) potentially can cause early failure of the roofing system. The old roofing system should be stripped down to the sheathing, as well as rebuilt.
2. Assess the Roof covering
After eliminating the old roofing, assess the sheathing. Sheathing comprises flat panels that give structural assistance and a foundation upon which roof covering materials, like tiles, are connected. Seek any wet locations or troublesome areas that will certainly need to be changed.
3. Protect From Ice Damage
If you stay in a region prone to the ice for even a portion of winter, it’s vital to install a water and ice barrier on your roof. This product is installed around the roofing system’s sides, yet specifically at the lower edge, which is most susceptible to the accumulation of ice. This tacky underlayment sticks to the roof covering sheathing, after that attached with roofing nails for added stability, strength and security.
4. Drip Edge Installation
The drip edge for the roof covering drops in 2 various parts of the roofing installation. The lower portion of the top covering goes on before the installation of the underlayment. The drip edge is installed on the sides of the roof after all shingles have been installed. First, mount the drip edge on the bottom side of your house on top of the water and ice barrier. After the drip edge is mounted secure it by using nails to keep it flat and in place.
After the roofing system underlayment system is set up on your house, the drip edge can be installed along the sides of the roof in the same fashion you attached it along the bottom. This keeps water from going over the side of the home siding and underneath it causing rot and water damage.
5. Roofing Underlayment Installment.
Roof covering underlayment, regardless if its synthetic or felt paper, is impregnated with water-resistant materials and available in two densities, 15 pound, and 30 pound. The 30 pound underlayment is two times as long-lasting as the 15 pound; however, the synthetic underlayments are a lot more sturdy than either of the felt paper options. If you search for the best way to shield your roof covering besides the roof covering itself, purchase the much more costly synthetic underlayment, as it is one of the most hassle-free and resilient choices.
Roll out the underlayment on the side of the roof covering and attach it utilizing roof nails spaced every 4 inches on the outside edges and roughly 8 inches in the middle of the material. These nails do not penetrate the drip edge, they should be installed slightly above the drip edge.
Put one row of roof covering underlayment after the previous one is installed by nailing it down with roofing nails ensuring a minimum overlap of 6 inches of the lower row with the row that was just installed. Overlap the underlayment materials all the way to the top of the roof and mount a row that straddles the peak so the underlayment seals off both sides of the roof covering simultaneously.
