Roof Replacement involves removing your home’s old or damaged roof and replacing it with a new and durable one to protect your property from the elements. As a responsible homeowner, you need to take your time to learn what a residential roof replacement process entails so you can find a qualified roofing contractor who can do the job right the first time.
At Bill West Roofing, we understand how involved and detailed a roof replacement process is. Our process is easy to understand and we strive to make it easy for you as well.
If you’ve decided to replace your old roof with a new shingle roofing system, we will take you through our comprehensive process. In a nutshell, the following are some of the steps we will undertake when replacing your roof:
1. Inspection, Estimate, Choosing Materials, and Signing Contract
The first step we take is to inspect your roof to ensure it’s appropriate for shingle installation. Our team won’t force you to replace your entire roof if minor repairs could effectively fix the problem. During the inspection, we check for any signs of roof damage which require a full roof replacement, such as a sagging deck, curling shingles, damaged flashing, algae growth, buckling shingles, missing shingles or granules, etc.
Based on our findings, we’ll give you a comprehensive written estimate detailing the cost of your roof replacement, including labor and materials. Our team will help you choose the right roofing material for your home’s design, your preference, and your budget. When you agree, you will sign the contract and give us the go-ahead to begin the roof replacement process.
2. Set Up at the Job Site and Replacing the Roof
Once we arrive on site with all the required materials, tools, and equipment, we begin by tearing off the old roof. Our crew will remove and replace all fascia board and sheathing if necessary. We then fasten the entire roof deck and install new underlayment onto the roof surface.
If your roof has skylights, we’ll install new ones and seal them appropriately. We’ll also install new lead boots over any plumbing stacks, new vents over existing exhaust openings, and new edge flashing and valley metal around the roof’s valley areas.
3. Final Cleanup, Close Up, Payment, and Warranty Issuance
After completing the project to your satisfaction, we conduct a final cleanup to collect all the stray nails and other roofing materials on your property. We then close up the project and collect the final payment. To assure we have done the best possible installation for your new shingle roof, we’ll schedule a certified inspector to conduct a full warranty inspection of your roof. We then issue you with both the manufacturer’s warranty for the materials and our workmanship warranty to protect the work itself.
