A complete roof replacement can be a big project. However, it is important to make sure that your roof is in good condition. A complete roof replacement can help to protect your home, increase property value, and keep your family safe. Take a look at what is typically included in a complete roof replacement.
How Long Does A Roof Replacement Take?
An average-sized home’s roof replacement process typically takes 2 to 4 days. This can vary depending on the condition and the size of property.
What Is The Roof Replacement Process?
Remove Existing Shingles
We carefully remove any existing shingles and discard them from the job site. This is the first step of the process and it’s very important to ensure that the roof surface is free of any obstructions.
Check and Fix Roof Damages
If necessary, plywood is given a quick fix. If not, new plywood is installed to replace the old and damaged plywood. We will check the roof for damages and fix them all before we start the next step.
New Drip Edge
To divert the water toward the eavestroughs, we install a new drip edge at the base of the roof. This ensures that the water is flowing away from your home, rather than collecting on the roof.
Ice and Water Membrane
Where necessary, we install an ice and water membrane to assist avoid potential harm from ice damming scenarios. This is a very important step during the roof replacement process.
We will install underlayment to offer another layer of defence against water leaking into the house. This is installed on the entire roof surface to give added protection.
Replace any outdated valley flashing with new ones if needed. To repair the outdated and deteriorating flashings in places like chimneys and walls, we install new flashing where necessary.
Replace outdated roof vents, exhaust vents, and plumbing vent flashing. We make sure the roof vents are installed properly and that they are fully functional.
Finally, we install shingles chosen by the customer to finish off the roof replacement process. We use high-quality materials and expert installation procedures to ensure that they are installed properly.
During final cleanup, any nails or metal particles are collected using magnetic equipment. We make sure that the entire job site is clean and tidy before we leave.
We guarantee that your roof will be in top condition and provide high-level protection. If you have any questions or concerns about the roof replacement process, or if you would like to get started on your roof replacement project, please do not hesitate to contact Armour Shield Roofing.
