There are some areas of the home that will need to be repaired or replaced over time. This can be an appliance that has run well for years or carpets that your dog has really done a number on. Everything has a life span and when it gets close to needing a replacement you want to be sure that you know what you are getting into. The roof of your home is one area that might be overlooked. It is something you can’t see through your everyday life so as long as the roof isn’t leaking it is just forgot about. The problem is that your roof is a huge part of the homes defense from the elements. All it takes is for the roof to have a minor blemish that will allow water to pool from even a slight rain storm. This pooling water will start to leak through the roof and this will cause mold and mildew to grow. You want to be sure that you have your roof inspected on a regular basis so that if there are any problems they are caught right away. Even with the best inspections there will come a time that repairs are no longer going to cut it and you have to have a whole roof replacement. Professional Home Roofers outlines what goes into having a new roof installed on your home.
Roof Consultation & Roofing Inspection
The first step to having a new roof installed on your home is having the roof inspected. You need to know what is required and if the roof can be repaired as opposed to replacement. The roof inspection is important when you want to have a new roof installed so that the technician is able to see what areas of damage they are worried about. There are several layers of roofing material and they need to be sure what level needs to be replaced.
Tear Off Old Roof
The next step when getting a new roof is to have the current roof torn off the house. The old material that is no longer working appropriately needs to be expertly removed and discarded. Most roofers will have a large dumpster parked in your driveway so they can drop the material off the roof and straight into a bin. The roof is stripped down to the appropriate level so that they new material is able to be installed.
Install a New Roof
When you are ready to have a new roof installed you will need to have a meeting with the roofing contractor. The roofer will want to sit with you and make decisions about what material you want installed on your roof. You want to take into account the neighborhood and material that will best suit the climate you are in. The roofer will then start the installation and ensure that all parts are installed correctly and set to protect your home.
