Below we have provided a residential roof replacement timeline just for you!
A Proper Residential Roof Installation Involve Following Steps:
1. Removing Old Roofing Materials
During this step, our experts will carefully remove your old and worn-out roofing material. The time duration for this step can depend on a variety of factors including the pitch of your roof, the size of your home, as well as the number of layers of shingles and felt installed on your roof.
Proper removal of old roofing materials is necessary so that we can thoroughly examine your roof decking for any hidden damage. If there are any signs of damage, it will be replaced by a high-quality CDX or Oriented strand board. The right material for your roof decking will depend on the existing material.
2. Installation of Drip Edge and Felt
Also known as eave flashing, a drip edge is installed to protect your fascia board and the eave of your home from water damage. As far as the roofing felt goes, you can choose between advanced synthetic felt and conventional asphalt felt. Synthetic felt is a more popular choice among today’s homeowners because of its exceptional water resistance, tear resistance, and superior strength.
At HUDCO Roofing, we install felt from some of the most trusted brands in the like roofing industry giant CertainTeed Corporation. Our professionals are fully trained and experienced to install roofing products from the leading brands.
4. Ice and Water Barriers
After the installation of the drip edge and felt, it is time to install foolproof ice and water barrier. This extra protection is needed around the most damage-prone areas of a roof such as chimneys, skylights, roof valleys, plumbing pipes, boots, wind turbines, and other roof penetrations. At HUDCO, we use the most cutting-edge materials to install ice and water barriers in all our residential roofing projects to ensure watertight protection all year round.
5. Roofing Shingles
Roofing shingles are the most visible, and therefore, the most exposed part of a roofing system. While, on one hand, roofing shingles play a significant role in enhancing the curb appeal of your property, if installed improperly, they can compromise the structural integrity of your entire home over time.
At HUDCO Roofing, we recommend installing high-quality products like Landmark® shingles from CertainTeed. Our skilled experts make sure to use the right number of nails on every shingle for optimal durability and lifespan. Landmark® shingles come with superior NailTrak® shingle technology for optimum strength and durability.
6. Attic Ventilation
Ventilation is an essential but often neglected component of any roofing system. However, inadequate ventilation in your attic can lead to serious damage to your roofing shingles from underneath.
At HUDCO Roofing, we use the most cutting-edge insulation products to achieve proper ventilation in your attic. Proper ventilation can help keep your house naturally cool, comfortable, and dry by allowing hot, humid air from inside to escape easily. Furthermore, it will keep your attic dry and prevent moisture-related issues like mold growth in your home.
Residential Roof Replacement by HUDCO: How to Prepare for Roofing Project?
1. Safety of Your Kids and Pets
Most Roof replacement projects can result in a lot of noise and falling debris that may also contain sharp objects. For this reason, to keep your pets safe and avoid disrupting the work of roofing professionals, it is recommended to have them stay at your relatives’ homes while your project is underway.
2. Protecting Your Home
Cover or remove your belongings including statues, planters, and photographs before the roof removal/installation process begins. Most roofing projects require the use of heavy machines that usually make strong vibrations. So, it is important to remove all decorative and delicate items from the interior and outer wall shelves to avoid any breakage.
