What to Expect During Your Roof Replacement

If you are having a roof replacement done, you may have some questions on what to expect during the installation and what you can do to make the roof replacement process run more smoothly. We are going to break down the roof replacement process and what you can do to help.

The Process  

The old roof will be removed all the way down to the plywood. Then we will do a thorough inspection of the plywood to make sure that there are no damages that need to be addressed. We will install a moisture barrier and then the new roof. We will finish up with making sure that the area is cleaned up and that no other finishing touches need to be done. This process can be noisy so you can expect to hear quite a bit of racket.

What You Can Do

There are a few things you can do as the homeowner to help make this process smooth and simple. You will want to remove any personal items from around the house as items could fall from the roof and damage anything in its path. This may include pots, furniture, and lighting elements. Keep all children and pets inside during the roof replacement process. During the roof replacement process there could be vibrations felt throughout the home. It is recommended that anything valuable or breakable in the home should be placed in a secure place as to not fall and break. You will want to make as much room as possible for a dumpster and large trucks to enter and exit your property.

Having a new roof installed is an exciting time. We hope that this little overview of the process as well as a few important tips of what you can do during this time has been helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call us at Reynolds Roofing.
