Depending on the material used, a roof only lasts 15-30 years. That means if you’re planning on staying in your home for a long time there’s going to come a time when you need to have a new roof installed.
Instead of trying to figure out how to install a roof yourself, keep reading to learn what the expect during a new roof installation when you work with professionals.
Step 1: Removal and Preparation
The first step of the roof installation process is to remove the old roof. You can expect the professional roof replacement company to deliver a dumpster to your home along with any materials they’re going to use to replace your roof.
Another important thing to help the roofers prepare is to ensure they know where a working outlet is since they are going to need to use electrical equipment. The removal and preparation stage typically takes about a day to complete, but talk with your roofers to get an accurate timeline.
Step 2: New Roof Installation
For this part of the roof installation process, it’s important to talk with your roofer to see if they will be covering your shrubbery (and if not you absolutely should cover them). Also, if you have pets ask them if they need to be locked up or put away during this time.
This part of the process is going to be noisy, so if you do have pets that get spooked easily make sure they’re in a safe place they can’t escape from. At this point, your house might shake a bit as well, so if you have any valuable artwork hanging on the walls you don’t want broken remove these before they start working.
Step 3: Clean Up
Once the roof has been fully installed the last thing that needs to be done is the clean-up! You can expect your roofing company to take care of any trash or extra materials they don’t need. You can also expect them to make sure the dumpster is picked up and that your yard is put back in place.
Once they start cleaning up you can start to put your home back together and let out any pets that you may have had to lock away.
Benefits of a New Roof
Getting a roof installed gives you many benefits, the most major one is protecting your home. Especially in Atlanta since we get very hot and muggy summers that can wreak havoc on your roof.
A new roof also gives you peace of mind knowing you’re protected for at least another 15 years before you have to consider a new roof.
