Roof replacement is a significant undertaking that can greatly improve your home’s value, safety, and appearance. While it can be a daunting prospect, understanding the process can ease your concerns. At Phil DiBello Family Roofing, we aim to keep our clients informed about every step of their roof replacement project. Here’s what you can expect during your home’s upcoming roof replacement.
Before any work begins, a professional roofer will conduct a thorough inspection of your current roof. This assessment allows us to identify the extent of the damage and determine the necessary work. We’ll then provide a detailed estimate that includes the cost of materials and labor.
Once the initial assessment is complete, we’ll work with you to select the appropriate materials for your new roof. This is an important step as the materials affect not only the appearance of your home but also the durability and lifespan of your roof.
Before the roof replacement starts, there are a few steps you, as a homeowner, can take to prepare. These include removing items from your walls and shelves to prevent damage from vibrations, covering items in your attic to protect from dust, and moving your vehicles away from the work area.
The first step of the actual roof replacement is removing the existing roof materials. Our team will strip off the old shingles, underlayment, and flashing, ensuring a clean slate for the new roof installation.
Once the old roof has been removed, the installation of the new roof can begin. This process typically starts with the underlayment, which is a water-resistant or waterproof barrier installed directly onto your roof deck. We then install the new shingles, starting at the bottom of the roof and working our way up. Lastly, we install the flashing in areas where leaks are most likely to occur, like at the chimney or vent pipes.
After the roof is installed, we prioritize a thorough cleanup of your property, including using a magnetic tool to pick up any loose nails. Finally, we conduct a final inspection to ensure the quality and durability of the work.
At Phil DiBello Family Roofing, we maintain constant communication with our clients throughout the roof replacement process. We’re available to answer any questions you have and keep you updated on our progress.
