You may think that the process for a new roof is just removing and replacing roof shingles. This is far from the only step required to ensure quality in your roof replacement project. There are many steps in the process from first contact to project completion. That is not to say that this will be a difficult journey for you, in fact that could not be further from the truth. We will help every step of the way from choosing colors, to permitting, to cleanup and beyond. As we have been in business since 1996, we have streamlined our process to ensure a painless process for our customers. Here we have broken down the roof replacement process once you have chosen your roofer. As always, we are happy to answer any and all questions regarding your roof replacement and hope we get the chance to work with you.
How the Process of a New Roof Begins
Once you have chosen a company, the first step is the choosing of colors and styles for your new roof. This is an important step as it can drastically change how your home looks. During this process you can decide whether you want the roof to blend into your home with muted hues, or become the showpiece with more distinct shades.
Next, we will take care of the permitting, helping this project go as smoothly as possible for you. Once all of the details have been ironed out, you will receive an email from a project manager going over what to expect in the coming days. This will range in topic from dumpster placement, to start times, with other necessary details added. You will be instructed to cover anything in your attic that you don’t want to get dusty, as well as move or affix anything on the ceiling, as hammering and walking on the roof deck can dislodge things below.
More Than Just Replacing Roof Shingles
Once the project has started, everything happens fast. Your dumpster will be delivered to your home. This may be difficult in cities like Cambridge, however the placement will have already been determined by you and your project manager. Your roof will be stripped of the old shingles and underlayment, depending on what the contract states.
The process of giving you a new roof will now begin. The size of the job will dictate the time required to finish the project and what steps are involved. This will be something the project manager can walk you through prior the start so you have an idea of what is involved on a day to day basis.
Once everything has been finished on the roof, cleanup begins. We strive to ensure there is no debris left in your yard and that all of your landscape is as good if not better than when we first arrived. There will be final contact with your project manager at the end of the job to communicate any concerns so that we do not leave without ensuring you 100% satisfaction.
