The Steps in Residential Roof Replacement

You’ve been considering roofing maintenance for a while now. When you find out you require complete roof replacement, you should locate a trusted roofing contractor in the Twin Cities area to get the job done right.

However, the roof replacement process isn’t as easy as hiring a contractor and letting them go to work. Roof replacement is a significant project with a hefty price tag. That’s why it’s imperative to know the steps to follow for a safe and effective roof replacement!

Step 1: Inspection & Delivery of Materials

Your roofing contractor will inspect the roof and assess the extent of the damage, along with the size and dimensions of your roof. This assessment will give your roofing contractor an estimate on the number of materials needed for the job done.

After inspection, your roofing contractor will order a sufficient amount of material and send it to your home. The roofing material will most likely show up the afternoon or evening before the project starts so that you won’t have pallets scattered around your yard for too long.

Step 2: Moving Your Vehicles

Your driveway will be a pretty cluttered area with materials and other debris during roof replacement. The morning the roofing outfit arrives to start work, they will communicate with you to make sure your vehicles are out of the way of the work area. Additionally, your cars will be moved so that you can come and go as you need during the roofing project.

Step 3: Property Protection

Before your roofing project starts, the roofing outfit will set up some protection around your property. Tarps will be placed around your property to protect your siding, windows, and doors from debris.

Step 4: Demolition

When work actually starts, the first step is demolition. Your old roof will be torn off, and the old materials will be thrown into a dump trailer which will be hauled out once the roofing is complete.

Step 5: Installation

Once the old roof is completely torn off, installment will begin! The first layer installed is the underlayment and the drip edge. The final installation steps are then the shingles, flashing, and any ventilation needed.

Step 6: Clean Up

The roofing outfit will begin to clean up immediately after installation is complete. The tarp, debris, and dumpster trailer, along with roofing material and tools, will be picked up the same day. After cleanup, you won’t even know a roofing contractor was there, other than the brand new roof!
