  1. Choosing a Roof

Before getting started on your new roof, we’ll meet with you to discuss options and help you choose the best roofing materials for your home. For example, certain roof pitches work better with certain types of material. We’ll also break down the different manufacturers for you and discuss the benefits of different types of roof materials then help you choose a style and color that looks great for your home and neighborhood.

  1. Scheduling Your New Roof Replacement

We’ll work with you to determine a time that’s best for your household. Together, we’ll put together a replacement schedule and let you know what to expect regarding the timeline.

  1. Preparation of Property

Before we can get started, we’ll take steps to protect your property and landscape by covering up any plants that could be damaged by the roofing materials and delivering a dumpster to properly dispose of your old shingles. We’ll also make sure your vehicles are safely out of the way as well as any outdoor furnishings.

  1. Delivery of Roofing Materials

Once you’ve chosen a roof for your home, we’ll have your roofing materials delivered to your home on the day your roof replacement is scheduled to begin. All of these details will be arranged ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about any unpleasant intrusions or surprises. And we’ll be careful not to damage your grass or landscape with our materials as they’re delivered.

  1. Old Roof Removal

Before we install the new roofing materials, we’ll need to remove your old shingles. As we remove the old materials, we’ll be mindful and protective of your home, lawn, and property. As we remove your old shingles, we’ll inspect the decking underneath to make sure there’s no damage that needs to be repaired or replaced during the new roof installation.

  1. New Roof Installation

After removing all of the original roofing materials, we’ll prepare the surface and begin the new roof installation process. Factors like the slope of your roof and type of roofing materials we’re installing will affect how long this stage of the installation takes.

  1. Cleanup Phase

Once we’ve installed your new roof, we’ll clean up your property so there’s no sign we were ever there to begin with. That is, no sign except for the beautiful new roof.
