Roof Advance’s Roof Installation Process
Getting a new roof can seem daunting at first, but it doesn’t have to be with a quality company like Roof Advance. We walk you through each step of the process and answer any questions you may have along the way. Best of all we take care of everything from evaluation to clean up and beyond. If you need a new roof we will walk you through these five basic steps.
In the first step of the process we come out and evaluate your roof, take measurements, and talk to you about your shingle options. We have a variety of shingle choices depending on your needs including those with Scotchgard protection such as ATLAS Roofing Shingles, Pinnacle Pristine Shingles, and Stormmaster Shake Shingles as well as Certainteed Residential Roofing products. We also offer both 5″ residential and 6″ commercial size K-Style gutters with an 18-month warranty on workmanship and a 30-year warranty on material.
- Property Prep
We take great care in ensuring that your home and surrounding property is protected. Therefore, we lay tarps on the ground and over plants and flowers to ensure that minimal damage occurs. We provide our own dumpsters, remove all your old shingles and avoid falling debris as much as possible. Once all the old shingles and underlayment are removed we inspect the roof to make sure there aren’t additional issues such as rotting wood that will need to be resolved before installing the new roof.
- Roof Installation
After removing the old shingles and repairing any necessary spots on the roof, the next step is to install the new. We first lay down a leak barrier to protect against rain and ice in the most susceptible areas and roof deck protection to keep the other areas dry as well. Next, we install starter strips on the eves with an adhesive that will protect your shingles from being blown away by strong winds. After that we lay the shingles of your choice. We install vents at the ridge and soffits to protect your attic from heat and moisture and finally ridge cap shingles for extra protection and look make your roof look finished.
- Clean Up
At Roof Advance, we make sure to clean up any mess we make so you don’t have to. We will rake, sweep and clean all debris from the job site and even use nail magnets to remove any nails that may have fallen. We do a thorough job of cleaning up and leave your house and yard looking better than when we arrived.
- Final Inspection
Your happiness is our top priority. Once everything has been cleaned up we perform a final inspection with the client to make sure there is complete satisfaction. Our owner, Jakob, will often visit the home after and do an inspection himself and verify the customer’s satisfaction. If you have any questions or problems we will address and fix them.
From start to finish our Roof Advance team will take care of you and your home, ensuring top quality work and products as well as friendly and helpful customer service.
