PROTECTING THE HOUSE FROM SHINGLES FALLING OFF THE ROOF Second step of the roof replacement is installing a heavy duty cover around the house to easy the shingles to fall away the houses and protect the windows, screen and siding from possible damages caused by the falling shingles.
STRIPPING OF THE OLD SHINGLES AND REPAIR THE ROOFING DECK The old roof shingles will be removed, regardless how many layers of existing shingles you may have, all of them will be removed at not extra cost. Properties with wooden shingles may have wood boards separated by one or more inch, IN THIS CASE OSB BOARD MUST BE INSTALLED TO THE WHOLE ROOF DECK…. After stripping the roof, we will inspect the roofing deck for possible damages or rotted wood, everything that need to be replaced or repair will be done at not extra charge.
OSB BOARD INSTALLATION TO THE ROOFING DECK AT EXTRA CHARGE”. At Most houses OSB Board installation is not necessary, Just rotted wood replacement, But.. Some homes with wooden roof shingles may have the roof boards separated one or more inches, IN THESES CASES WILL BE NECESSARY OSB BOARD INSTALLATION TO THE ROOF DECK / OSB board installation is not included in the price of the roof replacement.
DRIP EDGES INSTALLATION, FIRST STEP OF THE ROOF RE-INSTALLATION. The Drip edges are necessary to keep the rain and winds from getting under the roof deck & keep the water falling off the roof without getting behind fascial board…DRIP EDGES MUST BE INSTALLED ALL AROUND THE ROOFING DECK, NOT ONLY ON THE ROOF EAVES.
THREE FEETS OF ICE & WATER INSTALLATION AROUND THE EDGE OF THE ROOFING DECK, CHIMNEY, SKYLIGHT WINDOWS, DORMERS & PLUMBING VENT. Ice & Water is the most important step in the roof replacement as important as the shingles installation, this will protect your roofing system from water back up during the winter times… For more info click here..
FELT PAPER OR MORE COMMON CALLED ROOF PAPER… After the ice & water the roof paper is the next step in the roof replacement, this will help to drive out possible roof leaks outside the roofing system during a rain storm. WITOUT FELP PAPER THE ROOF REPLACEMENT WILL BE OUT OF CODE AND WILL VOID THW WARRANTEE FROM THE SHINGLES MANUFACTURE..
ROOF BOOT PIPE ALSO CALLED ROOF STACK VENT INSTALLED AT AVERY ROOF REPLACEMENT, NEW ROOF INSTALLATION AND EVEN AT EVERY ROOF LAY OVER.. The roof boot pipe or Stack vents, are replaced at every roof replacement regardless the condition of the existing ones. This is the only way to guarantee that the stack vent will last as long as the new roofing system.
STEP FLASHING AND ROLL FLASHING INSTALLED AROUND DORMERS, CHIMNEYS AND IN FRONT OF WINDOWS… We install step flashing around dormers and chimneys at every roof installation, this will stop the wind driven rain into the house, also will service as second layer of protection around the chimney in the event of chimney lead flashing failing. WINDOWS INSTALLED IN DORMERS ALSO WILL REQUIRED ROLL FLASHING INSTALLATION..
LEAD FLASHING INSTALLATION AROUND CHIMNEY & BRICK WALLS OVER THE ROOF. New lead flashing is installed at every roof installation, this will be combine with the aluminum step flashing under the lead flashing and the ice and water in the roofing deck. THE ALUMINUM STEP FLASHING WHEN INSTALLED PROPERLY WILL GIVE YOU A COMPLETE WATER SEAL PROTECTION WITHOUT THE NEEDS OF UGLY ROOF CEMENT AROUND THE CHIMNEY.
SHINGLES INSTALLATION, LIFETIME WARRANTEE AT EVERY ARCHITECT SHINGLES INSTALLATION. We always install architect shingles at every roof replacement unless the customer request the lower quality shingles installation “three tap shingles” / we apply between seven (7) to eight (8) nails per shingles (hurricane code), exceeding the manufacture request of five nails per shingles.
ROOF VENTILATION, RIDGE VENT INSTALLATION. This a mandatory step at every roof replacement and roof layover to allow the breathing of the roofing system and extract the hot air from the attic, this ventilation will extend the life of the roof. RIDGE VENT INSTALLATION PROCESS, we will cut one inch at every side of the roof ridge, after that we will install the product called ridge vent, the last step will be installation of the roof caps.
CLEANING AND DISPOSAL OF THE ROOFING MATERIALS.. We start the clean up as soon as the roof replacement begin, everything will be clean the same day. We never left any trash behind for the next day.. We also will use a magnetic sweeper to pick up every nails from the ground.
GUTTER CLEANING AND SEALING. Be aware that some defective gutter system may need to be replaced and cost of this is not included in the price of the roof replacement… At the end of the roof replacement the gutters will be clean and sealed to avoid posible water dripping at the corners, we will make sure that your gutter system are operational and clean.
