What to Expect From the Roof Replacement Process

In most cases, replacing a roof will take between 2 to 5 days. This is just an estimate, and other factors, such as the size of your home, the roofing material you choose, and the current weather conditions will also make an impact on the length of the process.

Before we start installing a new roof, we sit down with the client to discuss their roofing goals and give our honest estimate of how long we expect the project to take.

Once we begin, we will keep you informed and up to date on our progress until the installation is complete. Below, we’ve outlined the 5 steps you can expect to take place during a Showalter roof replacement.

What to Expect When Getting a New Roof

1. Design & Planning

If you have specific design requests, our roofing contractors can work with you to incorporate these into your roofing plan. During your estimate appointment, we’ll discuss the specifics of your home, your roofing goals, and what solutions will be feasible given your time and budget constraints. Although asphalt shingle roofs are our most popular option, we also provide a variety of unique roofing materials, including metal roofs, TPO, and silicon coatings.

Communication with our clients is our top priority, and we work to ensure everyone is on the same page throughout the duration of the roofing project.

2. Removal

The second step in replacing your roof will be to remove the existing roofing materials. Before we remove your old roofing, our roofing team will carefully place tarps near the sides and base of your home to protect it from falling debris. Once the tear-down is finished, we’ll thoroughly dispose of all shingles, nails, and other roofing debris to prevent messes and to protect children and pets.

3. Pre-Roofing Repairs

Depending on the condition of your home, some minor structural repairs may be necessary once we remove your existing roofing materials. If this is the case, we’re more than capable of assessing the damage and making the necessary repairs. Completing these pre-roofing repairs will help protect your home from damage and ensure your new roof lasts for as long as possible.

4. Installation

When the tear-down is complete and necessary repairs have been made, it’s time to start laying down your new roof. We will start by applying asphalt roofing paper to create a waterproof seal. Then, we will install flashing and drip edging where necessary.

These materials will help further protect your home from the elements. Finally, we will apply the materials for your new roof in the agreed-upon style. Once this is finished, we will add any necessary elements, such as ridge vents, to your roofing system.

5. Clean Up

Once we complete the installation of your new roof, we will safely remove all of the tools and roofing materials from the outside of your home. It’s always our goal to leave your home looking even better than when we found it.

Once clean-up is complete, we will carefully inspect your roof to ensure everything is properly installed and sealed.
