Re-roofing Process

Step 1: Getting Ready

Hide

The Roofing Process

We start the re-roofing process with a coordinated and efficient set up of our (technical) equipment.

Trailer and Dump

We use a mobile trailer to transport our professional tools to your home.

The Dump

Our mobile dump bin is used to transport the old roof to a city recycling center.

Crane

A crane lifts the new roofing materials onto the roof.

Ripping

The old roofing materials are removed from your decking.

New Materials Loaded

The new materials are loaded on the upper ridge.

Wood Replacement

We check the viability of the wood deck to ensure it is an acceptable nailing surface and replace any parts that are no longer fully functional.

Once the deck if fully ready to receive the new materials, we begin the process of installing underlayments.

Step 2: Getting The Deck Ready

Expertise

With our well-trained, expert, full-time employees, we install GAF Stormguard the first 6 feet from your eaves as well as any "potentially weaker areas" on the roof that present possible future water problems. For example, we use GAF Stormguard around plumbing and air vents as well underneath valleys and along adjacent walls.

The remainder of the decking receives a fiberglass underlayment called GAF Shingle-Mate.

Ice and Water Shield and Felt Paper

There is also an option to upgrade the felt to GAF Deck Armor, which offers premium breathable deck protection.

Ice and Water Shield and Deck Armor

The choice between these two options depends on the client’s preference.

Once the underlayment is in place, we install Drip Edge at the eaves (and gable ends, if desired) and Weatherblocker starter strips along the eaves, gables, and valleys.

Step 3: Installing Valleys

Valleys

We install the metal valleys on top of the GAF Ice and Water Sheild, using a precise process to ensure that water flows properly and that potential ice problems are minimized. We use chalk lines to ensure a precise shape and angle to the valleys and these specific lines will act as a guideline for the installation of the shingles.

Step 4: The Final Layer: Shingles

Shingling

Once the deck is fully prepared – that is, once there is no possible way for water to penetrate this protective layer resting on the wood decking – we begin to install the GAF fiberglass shingles. These GAF shingles are an exceptional product, providing much need improvements over the old style of organic paper-based shingles.

Step 5: Final Steps

Finishing Touches

We install new wall flashing, caulk the vents, plumbing stacks and any other such areas that might allow water to penetrate the decking.

Completed Surface

Site supervisors check and re-check the quality of the work done by our installation crew, who carries out the detailed work, and the ground crew works on cleaning the grounds to achieve a cleanup "better-then-when-we-arrived."
