Jan 1, 2019 | Roof Repair

So, you’re investing in a new roof and you want to know what to expect. The team at Home Town Roofing has been able to provide homeowners and business owners alike with the quality roofing services that they need for years. That is why, in today’s blog, we are going to touch on what it is that you need to know about roof installation before your new roof is installed. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact our team. For now, let’s talk about the basics of roof installation.

Roof Installation Schedule

The schedule that comes with having a roof installed is going to vary based on the size of the job, the materials being used, and the weather, as well as various other factors. In most cases, a roof installation takes roughly 14 days to complete from start to finish. Again, this could vary based on the factors that we touched on earlier, so make sure to keep an open mind when working with your roofing contractor on the timeline of the installation.

Tearing Off Your Old Roof

In order for a new roof to be installed, the old roof needs to be torn off. This process is going to require the roofers to strip every part of your roof down, all the way to the deck. This can be time-consuming because it needs to be done correctly to avoid any damage in the process. Ultimately, the shingles that are removed in a day should also be replaced. This is done to protect the foundation of the roof from the elements. So, you may see parts of your roof that are replaced with new shingles while other parts are not — this is totally normal!

Chance of Problems

As with any installation or major project, there is a chance of problems coming up. With roofs, there are so many problems that can go unseen for years, leaving them to only become more severe. While our team is on your roof, stripping it to the deck and placing new shingles on, there is a chance of us coming across issues that need to be taken care of. The issues that we bring to your attention contribute to the safety of the structure and the well-being of your home — we aren’t trying to scam more money out of you. Feel free to ask as many questions as you need to if there are issues that come up.we would be more than happy to explain them and discuss any steps that need to be completed for your roof to be in a healthy condition.

There are Various Layers

Something that many do not know about roofs is that there are many layers that contribute to the final look. While shingles may be the exterior piece that most people see, they certainly aren’t the only piece that contributes to a well-done roof. As you watch our team work on your roof installation, you will see that there are felt paper and underlayments, shingles, valleys and ridges, sealant, and more that we are utilizing for your roof. All of this is to ensure the roof is installed safely and remains in place regardless of what Mother Nature throws its way.
