Greenville's Premier Roofing Contractor
Remove old roof
We remove the old roof all the way to the decking. The reason you want everything removed to the decking is that it allows a clear inspection of the foundation of your roof. Without this step being done you could never be sure that the roof is going to rest on a solid foundation.
After we have removed the old roof to the decking we will then begin the process of installing the new roof. We will start installing felt and there are many types of felt, you can look at those differences by clicking here. We will also be installing ice & water (weather watch) in all the valleys. The ice & water is extremely important in keeping the water from getting in your house. It is a self-adhering material that is commonly put in valleys, around skylights, and around chimneys.
Plumbing boots - Box vents - Flashing
During this process, we will also be changing out all plumbing boots and box vents that you may have as well as inspecting/replacing any flashing that you may have. Our goal in the underlayment process is to ensure that everything is set up for success.
Install New Shingles
After the underlayment process is done we then begin to install new shingles. In most cases, we will be installing asphalt shingles (if you are wanting a metal roof click here for more information). There are 2 different types of shingles 3-tab and architectural the main differences between those 2 can be found to the right ————>
When we are installing the shingles we are putting 5-6 nails in each shingle
Most newer homes come installed with ridge vent. And in most cases that is the style of ventilation we will be installing. Ridge vent is usually installed at the peaks of your home and just fold over to ensure that no water gets in. Then shingles are nailed into that to give the home a very nice look. There are other styles of ventilation such as box vents and power vents but this style is the majority. If you have any questions about this be sure to go over that with one of our roofing specialists.
Clean Up and Inspection
Our clean up and post inspection is also a very important part of our process. We will have a specialist come out and go over your roof with a fine tooth comb. We are ensuring that nothing has been missed. We also are going to go all around your home with high-powered magnets to get any nails that have fallen. Keep in mind we do our best to get all of the nails but you still want to be careful with any pets or children. There are on average about 15,000 nails that will come off of your roof. Although we strive for perfection in many cases it’s just impossible to find every single one of them.
