Replacing your Roof

If you have submitted a service request for a new roof, whether for a new look, you have purchased a home that has a bad roof, or it is just time to replace an old worn out roof, you are getting a new one and it is important to understand what to expect with your new roof, when it will be completed, what type of warranty will be given on the new roof, what the total cost will be, etc. You should know these things before a roofer steps foot on your property to do the work.

Having a new roof installed is an experience that troubles most homeowners. Some think that a new roof installation means that their home will have no roof on it and that rain, snow, and other debris will come falling in before the roofers have a chance to complete the job. This is simply not true with new roof installation. Roofers are aware of your needs and they know how to protect your home from the elements. Hopefully, this information will help you feel less troubled about having a new roof put on and we can now move on to how to prepare for the roofers arrival.

If your roof is being completely replaced, remember that your current roof needs to be torn out and hauled off and new roofing material needs to replace it. This may sound like a remedial piece of information, but what you should consider is how much space in your yard that will need to be used by the roofers to pile the old materials, and how much room they will need to stack the new roofing material. Often a roofing company will back a dump truck up to your home and toss the materials into the truck from your roof. This is usually the quickest way for them to remove the old roofing materials without having to restack it. Big companies will then use a crane to move the new roofing materials from their supply truck to the roof. Small roofing outfits however will march bundles of shingles up a ladder, one at time. This is grueling work for the roofers.
If your roofers have told you that they will be backing a truck up in your yard or using a crane to load materials on the roof, do everything you can to move items out of your yard that are likely to be in their way. You should also ask them how they intend to avoid damaging your lawn with this equipment.

Depending on what roofing material you are having put on your roof, the integrity of the sub-roof has to be inspected. If the OSB board is warped or otherwise unusable, it will need to be replaced. You shouldn’t worry, professional roofers use methods that will minimize the amount of space that will be vulnerable to the elements at one time, and the amount of time it takes to get it protected. If you are having a heavier roofing material added than was on there previously, like slate shingles, your roof might need to be reinforced. In this case you need to be prepared for roofers to be in your attic to add reinforcement. If your roof is rotten, it will need to be torn out and the sub-roof replaced.

Your roofer or roofing contractor is the absolute best source for any and all questions that you may have about your new roof installation. Your roofing contractor can explain to you his exact methods, as well as, what the best ways are for you to prepare for his arrival and for your new roof. Therefore, if you are ever in doubt, ask your roofer. Style by Carden Exteriors knows that roofers are aware of your needs and they know how to protect your home from the elements. Hopefully, this information will help you feel less troubled about having a new roof put on and we can now move on to how to prepare for the roofers arrival.
