You may have visions of getting up on that roof to nail down some new shingles, but Duluth GA roof replacements are a bit more difficult than that. Roofing utilizes the most advanced roofing material technology and equipment to protect your greatest asset—your house.
At Duffy Roof, we understand that deciding to install a new roof is going to be a major financial and time commitment. It can involve some inconvenience, but once it’s done, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief.
It’s important that Duluth GA roof replacements are done right, so that you don’t have to bring in a second roofer who actually knows what they’re doing.
The start of the roofing installation process begins with a new roofing estimate. This may need some adjustment along the way, as you understand what’s involved, and the different types of roofing materials to choose from. It also needs to be accurate so you’re not surprised with the final invoice.
Did you know that during your new roof installation that safety is of utmost importance? Chances are that you have a family—young kids and pets—who enjoy the house. You’ll need to keep your young children and pets indoors during this process. Your roofers will also need to protect your house’s siding, walls, and garden with tarps and protection plywood. We may have signage up too, just in case your house is close to a pedestrian walkway.
It’s important to remove old roofing materials first, before we can get started on installing new materials. While it’s common practice to put shingles on an already existing layer, more than two is not recommended. In fact, we have seen houses that had three or more layers of shingles! By this point, the roofing is creating so many gaps that it’s going to fail for certain.
Once all the roof’s shingles have been removed, the wood decking can be inspected. This is to ensure that the surface is stable and secure, so that it will be a solid base for your new roofing structure. There are also instances where this part of the structure may need to be replaced too. This can be quite costly, but it’s imperative that it’s replaced before it completely fails, otherwise the entire structure of your house is at risk.
We also take the time to search for missing nails, as this structure needs to be secure. We can re-nail the wood decking if it needs to be done. There are many other processes that we must do, including installing the roofing felt, new shingles, gutters and vents.
We also believe in keeping the job site clean on a daily basis. This works to decrease the stress of Duluth GA roof replacements. We also do a meticulous post-roofing inspection to ensure everything is done right. If not, we fix it until it is.
