What Does Getting a New Roof Installed Entail?

Are you in need of a new roof? Do you find yourself wondering what exactly the process entails? Guardian Roofs is here to help! Keep reading to learn more about getting a new roof installed.

    1. Pick Your Materials

The first step to getting a new roof is to call a professional roofing contractor like Guardian Roofs and get a quote. During this step, you will also need to pick out your materials, including roofing material and color.

    1.  Have Existing Shingles Removed (except in a reroof scenario)

The next step to having your roof installed is to have the existing roof ripped off. Though this doesn’t apply for those getting a reroof, during this step, the roofing contractor will pull the old shingles, tiles, etc. off the roof so they have a clean slate to work with.

    1. Have Minor Repairs Made  

Once the roof is stripped bare, Guardian Roofs will examine the roof and determine if any small repairs need to be made. This includes any rotting wood or other damaged that needs to be addressed before the new roofing materials get installed.

    1. Lay Roofing Paper and Drip Edges  

After any necessary repairs to your roof are made, roofing paper will be laid and drip edges will be installed. These materials are installed to keep water out of your home and it’s essential that this step is done carefully and by a professional, licensed roofing contractor.

    1. Install Roofing Material

After the prep work is done, your new roofing material will be laid. This is the point in the project where you can really start to see your new roof taking shape. At this stage, the project is almost complete.

    1. Do Final Installations and Clean Up

Once the new roof is laid, there are a few minor details to clear up. You will need to have vents and flashing installed. After that is wrapped up, your roofing contractor will do a final cleanup and a thorough inspection to ensure that everything was done correctly.
