One of the first steps in installing a new roof on your home is to determine the type of roofing material used. Composite roofing materials are quite popular today, but if you are looking for a more traditional option, you might also consider wood shingles. You can also opt for composite shingles that reflect a conventional wooden shake appearance. If you are unsure which type of roofing material would be the right choice for your home, consulting with a professional roofer can help you make an informed decision.
Before composite roofing is installed, it is necessary to apply underlayment over the deck of your roof. Underlayment must be lined up in a precise manner with the edge of your roof deck. Additional underlayment may need to be installed around the ridges and hips to protect against leaks. Once in place, the underlayment is attached to the roof deck using a staple gun.
Composite shingles will need to be prepared by removing the tabs before installation. This will help to prevent moisture from leaking inside or under the starting row of shingles.
Shingles should always start at the eaves of your roof. Our expert must nail each shingle into place with the use of galvanized roofing nails. Once the first row is completed, the next row will be positioned over the first row so that the tabs overlap. The shingles are then nailed into place, and the process is repeated once again. Our roofing will cut shingles precisely to fit odd areas where moisture could potentially seep into your roofing. Shingles must also be nailed over the ridges of the roof so that they curve over the edges. Flashing may also need to be installed in certain areas, including near chimneys, to prevent leaks.

“We had this company replace our roof and gutters. It was a two day project for both jobs. From the outset, this was a very straight-forward project. Vasilie, the owner, presented us a very professional power point demonstration of what the projects entailed in full detail- step by step of what we could expect. The crew and crew supervisor worked quickly and methodically like clockwork. We were contacted frequently to see if we had any concerns. Everything went smoothly. This was an unexpected pleasant experience.”
