Replacing the roof of a home or business is perhaps one of the biggest property improvements that anyone can encounter in terms of both scope, as well as the expenses involved. Since every home or business is different, the roof replacement process varies greatly depending on a number of factors such as whether or not the existing roof will be removed, the type of new materials one is planning on using and the measurements of the roof.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to roof replacement, which can make the roof replacement process long, daunting and tasking. However, the more you know about the process, the better you can plan for it and organize yourself. If you have current concerns about your roof or suspect that you might need replacement, here are Hotshot Construction’s tips on what to expect from a roof replacement process:
To make sure that everything goes as planned, you will need to plan adequately. The planning stage will involve color and material selection. The contractor will also carry out the measuring process which will allow him or her to give you an estimate for the roof replacement.
Before anything can commence, one of the very first things that Hotshot Construction has do carry out is property protection using tarps and protection plywood. The coverings will protect your walls, plants, siding and any accessories you may have.
The roof removal stage is usually the noisiest and will involve the removal and disposal of adhesives, any sub-roof materials, as well as old shingles.
Hotshot Construction will then work to address every section of your roof so that no part is left exposed. The actual installation process can take a very short time (between 3 days to a week) but it will all depend on the scope of the project.
A thorough inspection has to be carried out to make sure that there is no rotten or wet wood. If there is, it has to be replaced so that there can be a solid roofing structure that will enable the singles to stay intact.
Before shingles can be installed, synthetic decking has to be embedded first. After the underlaying is done, the new shingles are then added using precision nailing techniques.
Installing roofing materials
After the shingles are installed correctly, the next natural step involves fixing the new roofing material. After the materials have been fixed and everything in place, cleanup of the site can then be completed. Contact Hotshot Construction today for all you roof replacement needs.
