Roof replacement is considered to be more than just shingle nailing. Replacement of roof involves steps such as property protection, removal of old roofing material, inspection of roof, preparing the roof surface, installation of roofing material, site cleanup and final inspection. The property which includes walls, siding, plants and bushes are required to be protected.
Well established roofing companies need to protect an individual’s property. Removal of old roofing material is followed through. Removing and replacing of soft wet or rotted roofs is done during wood deck inspection. Upon replacing the soft wet and rotted roof a solid base for the roof is created for the roofing structure.
Attaching of the wood sheeting to roof rafters in the right way is inspected on top of checking the wood deck. In addition to the inspection of wood deck and wood sheeting, roofing contractors are required to inspect on missing nails after removal of old roofing material. When missing nails are checked before installation of a new roof it will avoid formation of bumps on the new roof.
When roofing inspection is done, the next step is preparation of the roof surface. Drip edge installation, ice and water shield installation and roofing felt installation are the ways in which roof surface preparation occurs.
At ninety degrees the drip edge is installed to all edges of the roof. In order to prevent rain from entering underneath the roofing material the drip edge is installed. When the drip edge is installed the ice and water shield installation is the next process in which ice and water shield is used as a special underlaying. The shield of ice and water sticks to the wood deck for the purposes of preventing water leaks. The area of roof in which the ice and water shield is installed is at the bottom of the roof and at all roof penetrations.
The final roof surface preparation is the roofing felt installation in that the rest of the roof is covered with roofing felt. In order to prevent shingles from sticking to the wood the roofing felt is applied. Installing of the new roof material involves installing of the roof from the bottom up, followed by counter flashing, vents and ridge capping installation. Several factors influence the roofing characteristic of a building.
The structural design of a building determines how a roof is installed. A good architectural design is required by individuals planning to build a house. Good architectures ensure all necessary details are captured in the planning and designing of a house. Great artists are what make up architects as they design and plan for a construction.
