WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE PROCESS OF INSTALLING A NEW ROOF AT HOME (RESIDENTIAL ROOF)
Our superior services ensure that your roof provides maximum protection and beauty throughout its lifespan.
If you want to replace your residential roof or install a roof on a new home, one of the first things you should learn is how the process works.
However, installing a new roof is one of the most important home updates and repairs, particularly in Wilkes Barre and Scranton, PA. Without a well-designed and securely fitted roof, your property may damage, ranging from insulation to water-logged drywall to damaged furnishings or flooring—which is why installing a quality roof is so important.
The question is, how can you tell if the roof installed by your roofing contractor is of high quality? The best thing you can do is learn about what goes into a residential roofing installation project.
Here is an overview of what you need to know about the process of installing a new roof on your home.
What is the home roofing installation process?
You can only make informed decisions when hiring a roofing company to handle your residential roofing installation (whether for new construction or replacement of an old, damaged roof) if you understand how the process works and how long it should take.
How long does the project usually take?
Residential roof installation typically takes a couple of days to a week to complete, depending on the size of the roof and whether additional decking or fascia repairs are needed.
Talk with your roofing contractor about their processes and how long they expect your roofing installation to take for a more concise timeline.
Roofing Project Step by Step
The first step in installing a new roof is properly assessing the existing roof and determining what materials will be required to complete the project. Certain materials, such as tile, may be reusable depending on their condition.
Once the necessary materials have been determined, the next step is to order what is required and schedule and plan for a dumpster to store any waste materials.
The next step is to strip and remove all existing tile or shingles and the underlayment from the roof (It is possible to reuse tile if it is in good enough condition.)
In some cases, the plywood (decking) and rafters are exposed. Damaged wood or potential structural issues can be identified, removed, replaced, or repaired.
If necessary, new plywood is installed on the rafters, and a drip edge is installed at the roof’s edges to prevent water from running down the fascia. The underlayment, typically a synthetic waterproofing material, is then installed. Proper underlayment installation, particularly in the valleys (along with valley metal), around the chimney, and on the peak, is critical to preventing moisture from penetrating your roof and causing damage to the interior of your home. The roof is waterproof even though there are no tiles or shingles on it at this point.
The tile or shingles are then installed using the appropriate size and type of nail or screw. The installation method for a tile roof can differ depending on the material used, such as concrete, slate, or clay. Furthermore, the architectural look can influence the installation process (i.e., two-piece Spanish-style tile). Whatever material is used, it all works the same way. When properly laid down by an experienced roofing company, the entire installation fits together so that your roof is watertight and can shed water appropriately.
The final steps in completing a residential roof installation include the following:
- Installing metal flashing around the chimney to provide a tight seal.
- Installing a shingle ridge cap or tile trim at the top of the ridge to provide additional protection against wind or water intrusion.
- Lastly, sealing and painting all pipes.
You now have a guide to the specifics and what to anticipate from the roof installation process.
