Seven Steps To Roof Replacement from our Hazleton Roofing Contractors

Ensuring that your property is fully secured is one of the basic things that needs to be considered in every roof replacement project. Your walls, siding, plants, bushes, garden, patio are all part of your property that needs to be protected once a roof replacement is ongoing. Making sure that proper tools, safety equipment, materials, garbage disposal facilities are available before commencing the project.

Removal of Old Roofing Materials

Old roofing materials should be removed to be able to replace it with a new one. Tearing off the entire roof is the best way to make sure your structure is sound and all materials are of the same grade. The wood decking should still be in good condition. A total tearing off the current roof is usually the most needed solution for most roof replacement situations. The usual reason for a total tear off are if two layers of tiles, shingles, or shakes already exist on the roof, wood decking needs replacement, the roof is damaged from soaking into water, and the roof consists of asbestos, slate, clay materials or asbestos

Roofing Inspection

A thorough inspection conducted by our Hazleton roofers must be done to analyze if a house needs an actual roof replacement. An inspection of the wood decking is needed to replace any soft, rotten, or wet woods in order to create a solid base for the roof structure. This step is very important to any roofing projects because your shingles will only stay intact if you have a solid base. Wood sheeting also needs to be checked to make sure that they are attached securely to the roof rafters. As a homeowner, you must make sure that missing nails must be checked during the removal of your old roof, it is better to re-nail the whole wood decking to make it secure before installing the new shingles.

Preparing the Roof Surface

Installation of New Roofing Material

After the steps mentioned above are done, it’s time to lay out the new roofing materials, starting from the bottom up, followed by steps on counter flashing, ridge vents, and ridge capping installation depending on the need to do so. All of our roofing is covered by extensive warranties to both workmanship and the roofing material. A roof from Blue Square Builders will be installed properly, and will maintain against the elements for a long time into the future.

Site Cleanup

After the new roof has been replaced, make sure that the site is cleaned leaving no hazardous materials lying around like nails, roof debris or power tools. At our roofing company in Hazleton we use roller magnets to roll around and pick up stray nails. The landscape should also have remained intact and no damage has been inflicted around the property

Final Inspection

This final step is necessary to check that a job well done has been achieved in your roof replacement. At this time all small details should be checked for the last time and diagnose if there are any minor revisions that needs to be done
