Your home’s roofing is the shield that protects your home’s structure from several external factors such as harsh weather, snowfall, rain, storm, dust, and much more. So if you didn’t get your home’s roofing repaired or replaced in the last 20-25 years, it’s time to get an estimate. We have mentioned the step-by-step process for you.
Hire a professional to go up on your roof and check the condition of the various components of your roof. Based on the condition of the roof, the professional will decide whether you need a complete roofing replacement. If they find any damage on the roof and if your roof is leaking, you will have to replace the entire roof.
Once your roof structure is cleared, the professional will check the flashing material. If the professional finds any damaged or misplaced flashing, it will be replaced with a quality metal flashing. Professional installers will be very careful with your property. They will work with you so that no damage is caused to your roof.
Once the professional detaches all the shingles and flashing, they will clean the roofing surface. First, they will sweep the surface well. They’ll then remove any stray nails that didn’t come up in the removal of the shingles and tighten the loose boards in the sheathing. They’ll examine the sheathing for damage and rotted boards and replace the damaged sections accordingly.
After cleaning your roof, it’s now time to install this protective component of your home’s roof. A drip edge gives roof edges a nice finished look, prevents shingles from curling over the edge, and keeps water from running directly down your fascia boards.
An ice and water underlayment will act as a water barrier for your home’s roof. They will lift up the bottom part of the underlayment, peel off the backing, then let it fall back into place. The ice and water barrier will immediately stick to the roof.
You can select from vinyl, metal, wood, and slate siding materials for your house. Each one of them has its own set of pros and cons. Talk to your roof renovator and ask for assistance to choose the right siding material.
Finally, the professional will clean your roof to remove any leftovers from the surface. Sweep the roofing thereafter, and they are done.
Delaying or ignoring the crucial process of roofing replacement can result in catastrophic consequences for your house. All that you need is a qualified home renovator from a licensed company for the job to fix your roofing.
