Having your homes' roof replaced is a major improvement process that can be confusing for any homeowner but it doesn't have to be. Here is what you can expect from Morgan Roofing:
* Respond to your initial call promptly. * Inspect and measure your roof and make recommendations based on our assessment and your needs. * Keep you informed of our schedule and the starting time, date of your job. Upon arrival the crew members will start to protect your property and landscape, patio furniture ect. * The tear off of the existing roof will follow in a neatly and responsible manner being sure to watch the weather and drying in each section as it is exposed.
Step One - Protecting the Area
Upon arrival at the job site the crew will begin to protect the landscape and the home or building by using tarps and moving patio furniture to a safe place. We also reduce the amount of debris from the tearing off of the existing roof by getting as much into the dumpster as possible directly from the roof. The less that falls on the ground the less wear and tear on the property and the less we have to pick up and handle twice.
Step 2 - The Tear Off
A tear off is completed by removing all shingles and felt paper from the existing roof, exposing the wood decking.
Step 3 - Inspecting the Roof Deck
Once we have a good look at the wood decking on your home we will
re-nail the deck as needed. We will also replace any rotten or damaged
wood. This is important and must be done to insure a solid roof
foundation. Our contract will specify exactly how much the cost of wood
replacement will be.
Step 3 - Installing Ice Guard
The next step in the process will be to install the ice and water gaurd
and felt paper. Ice and water guard is installed at the gutter edge and
up from the gutter at least 3 feet. On some homes where ice is a
problem, we will install ice guard 6-9 feet above the gutter and in
some cases, it will be installed on the entire section. Again, our
estimate will spell this out very plainly. Next, the ice guard will be
installed in the valleys, along walls and around the chimneys and
skylights. Keep in mind, like every step in the roofing process there's
a right way and a wrong way to install ice and water guard. Be sure you
have confidence that your contractor will do it right. Finally, heavy
weight felt paper will be installed to complete the tear-off and dry-in
process. Your roof is now ready for the shingles.
