If you are going to get a new roof put on your home, there are several things that you will need to expect. It is a process that can be time-consuming; however, it is more common for the job to go very smoothly, taking only a couple of days to complete. For most single-family homes that are average in size, the maximum time is typically three days. Even if you have a larger home with multiple stories, they should be done within a week. Here are six things that you can expect during a roof installation.
Three Things That Will Occur During Set Up
The first thing that you will see is the delivery of all the required materials. This will be positioned on the outside of your home. If you are replacing your roof, and putting a brand-new one on, they will bring in a large bin or two where the workers will climb up, remove the existing roof, sliding everything into the garbage bins below. Finally, they are going to start loading all of the new shingles to the top of the roof, usually with some type of conveyor system. Once everything is in position, work will proceed on to the next stage of the project.
Three More Things That Will Occur Once The Job Begins
The next three things that will occur are they will repair any damage to the sheetrock that is on top of your roof. Second, they will begin to put down the tarpaper or similar material which will be in between the shingles and the wood. Finally, they are going to add all of the roofing materials to your roof, starting from the bottom, and working their way to the top. They will finish the job by placing the final shingles along the edge of the apex of the roof and all of the flashings on the edges to complete the task.
Other Things They Might Do
There is the possibility that they may be installing skylights. This process is very common for two-story homes where they are converting the top level into some type of living quarters. Another possibility is they will be installing solar shingles, ones that can absorb the energy of the sun to produce electricity. This will be a similar process, but it will be a much more meticulous project. Sometimes the solar panels are simply placed over the top of the shingles that have been added. Either way, this is another possibility, depending upon the type of roof, and additional projects, that you have requested.
Once the week is over, you will have a brand-new roof that will last for decades. You can be very happy with the work, especially if you have done your research and found the best roofing company available. It’s going to be a job that will only take a few days to complete, or it could be as long as a week. These are just some of the things to expect as roofers start to remove your existing roof and put on a brand-new roof in its place.
