On average, you should expect your roof to have a lifespan of about 30 years. So, is it time for you to start thinking about scheduling a roof installation project? If the answer to that question is yes, the first step is learning more about what to expect.
More specifically, you might be wondering what your replacement project will include. We’re here to clear things up for you. Continue reading to learn more about what’s included when you schedule a roof installation project with the Bak Brothers team.
INITIAL ROOF INSPECTION
The first step for every roof replacement project is to have your old roof inspected by a professional roofing contractor like our team at Bak Brothers. We’ll come to your home, take a look at the current state of your roof, take measurements, and talk to you about the replacement materials you want for your new roof.
During your initial inspection, we’ll also be able to give you more details about the estimated costs and the timeline for your project.
REMOVAL OF YOUR EXISTING ROOF
After the initial inspection, if you’re ready to move forward, you’ll sign a contract and we’ll agree on a start date for your project. When that date arrives, we’ll come out to your home and begin the process of taking off the layers of your old roof.
We’ll remove everything, down to the decking. From there, we’ll inspect the joists and trusses, checking to ensure that the existing decking can support the new roofing materials. If it can’t, we’ll also remove and replace the decking before moving forward.
INSTALLATION OF YOUR NEW ROOF
Next up, we’ll begin installing your new roof. The time it will take to complete this step largely depends on the size of your roof and its slope. The steeper and larger your roof, the longer it will take us to complete the project.
During the installation process, we’ll replace the decking if necessary, then install a new water and ice shield and flashing. This will help protect your home from water damage over the life of your roof. Lastly, we’ll install the new shingles and a replacement drip edge to complete your new roof.
The final part of the roof replacement process is to clean up after ourselves. Our goal is to always make it look like we were never at your home, so we make sure to leave it immaculate. During our clean-up, we’ll remove any debris from the installation and haul away materials from your old roof.
Finally, we’ll go through all the details of the replacement with you, so you know exactly what we did. This is also a great time for you to ask any post-installation questions you may have. After that, we’ll finish packing up our supplies and leave you to enjoy your new roof!
