Whether you are planning to replace a shingle, metal roof or slate, the surface preparation is exactly the same for all types of roofing:
1. Protection of Property
Before starting the re-roofing process, the roofers ensure that your entire property is fully protected. They make sure the walls, plants, bushes, siding are all well-protected.
2. Removal Of Old Shingles and Roofing Material
Roofers completely remove the old shingles from the rooftop in order to carefully inspect wood decking.
3. Roofing Inspection
Roofers begin a thorough inspection of the wood decking. Any rotted, soft or wet wood needs to be completely removed and replaced in order to create a solid base for the new roofing structure.
4. Preparation of Roof Surface for Installation of Shingles
Once the roof has been inspected and cleared off old roofing material, shingles are installed layer by layer.
5. Installation of New Roofing Material
Once the shingles have been installed, roofers start laying out new roofing material, which is followed by counter flashing, ridge vents and later ridge capping installation, as required.
