What is roofing Instillation?
Roofing installation is when the contractor comes in and tears off existing shingles and tears off the felt. Then inspects the roof and the decking and to make sure you don’t have any rotting plywood. If you do have rotting plywood that part must be replaced before any work should proceed. After replacing the plywood of the rotted part, you must install a 15 or 30 pound felt. 15 pound felt is for regular pitched roof while most of the Steep roofs need 30 pound felt which is more protective for those specific kinds of roofs. Then we take out all the pipes and the flashings around the bathroom vents. Once all that has been replaced, we come back with a new one. All the vents must be replaced, for example turbine vents and electric vents are all things that must be replaced.
As a result everything on top of the roof will have to be new excluding the decking. In situations where you have wood shingles underneath the existing shingles, we must tear up the wood shingles because the insurance will not allow to install composition shingles on wood shingles (which is the entire wood shingle underneath) and come back with new plywood. Before we can install the new shingles first we take into mind to make sure not to interfere with the daily activities of our customers. To do this we make sure to do as minimum as possible around the garage and driveway area which includes cleaning up all nails and making sure we do not deliver the material where the customer cannot go into their house or garage. We also make sure we clean up after ourselves and make sure that both entrances are free of debris and materials. We pick up all the trash and we take the magnet around the yard to make sure we do not leave any nails behind. Last, we haul all the trash away.
What materials do we use?
We use 15 pound felt which is the under layer, shingles to match the existing as closely as possible, caulking, and if necessary some spray paint. The brands we use include GAF shingles manufacturer, Owens Corning Corning manufacturer and TEMCO manufacturer. There is either 25 or 30 year shingles depending on what the customer wants. 25 year shingles are made of lighter materials but they don’t last as long as a 30-year shingles which are heavier and are also prettier to see. Customers tend to prefer the 30 year shingles, because they’re just a little bit more expensive and they have a prettier look
