Roof replacement consists of several steps. It’s not as simple as nailing down shingles and calling it a day. Effective roofing relies on advanced materials and integrated systems to protect your home. Whether you are replacing a few bad shingles or your entire roof, the process is mostly the same.

Here’s a breakdown of what that process typically looks like. If you’re looking for a roofing company to tackle any of your roof replacement needs in the Dallas and Fort Worth area, contact our team at Hometown Roofing today.

1. PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY

The first step is to make sure your property is fully protected while we repair your roof. We typically use waterproof tarps or plywood that keeps weather elements out.

2. REMOVAL OF OLD ROOF

All old shingles are removed so we can fully inspect the wood deck.

3. ROOF INSPECTION

We inspect the wood under your shingles, which is also referred to as the deck. We make sure to replace and repair any soft or rotten wood to ensure your shingles are installed on a solid base. We check that the wood sheeting is properly installed on your rafters. Many roof contractors do not check for missing nails during the inspection process, but we do. This prevents bumps on your roof after the repair process is completed.

4. PREPARE THE ROOF DECK FOR SHINGLES

We add any additional things that your roof will require such as drip edges, ice and water shields, roofing felt or anything else that is necessary to make your roof last a long time.

5. NEW ROOF INSTALLATION

After the above steps have been completed, we add new roofing material.

6. SITE CLEANUP

Many roofing contractors do not clean up after they finish the job, but we pride ourselves on picking up after a job to ensure your home is left in the condition we found it.

7. FINAL INSPECTION

Once your roof has been fully repaired, we meticulously go over all our work to make sure your roof repair is up to our high standards. We check that the roof repair has been done correctly and that you are completely satisfied with our work.
