Roof Installation Process
First, we remove the old roofing. You will find that some roofing companies may insist on installing new roofs over the old one. The problem with this is that it creates a dangerous pattern that leads to your roof becoming too heavy. A heavy roof hurts the integrity of your home. It is our standard to ensure that we remove the old roofing all the way down to the sheathing and then rebuild it. This will guarantee that you have a safe and beautiful new roof.
Secondly, we evaluate the sheathing. We want to make sure that the structural integrity of the sheathing, the part that the shingles are attached to, is solid and doesn’t show signs of cracking or moisture build up. If we do notice signs of potential trouble, we will take care of it by replacing the old sheathing panels with new ones, This will ensure that your roof has a strong and reliable base.
Next, we install ice protection. As you most likely already aware of, New York is known for its extremely cold winters. With the harsh cold comes the risk of ice. Ice can cause damage to your roof by weighing it down, getting under shingles and then melting, leaving moisture trapped which causes leaks. We make sure to install an ice and water barrier. This barrier wraps around the edges of your roof, and its adhesive nature allows it to stick to the sheathing, providing an extra layer of protection to the most vulnerable areas of your roof, that are susceptible to ice and water damage.
We can also do an inspection of your soffit, which is highly susceptible to damage from ice. Icicles often form on the underbelly of the soffit, which adds weight that drags it down. This can warp the material, and it is important to keep up proper maintenance on it to avoid costly repairs.
After we install the ice protection, we then put in the drip edge. The Drip edge is installed in the underlayment and the sides of your roof. This prevents water from dripping down and becoming caught in the underlayer of your roof, protecting it from water damage.
We then move on to the roofing underlayment installation. It is our standard that we install the roofing underlayment to add an extra layer of water-resistant materials. Water damage to the roof shortens its life-expectancy and weakens its integrity. Safety of our clients is our number one concern on any job.
Finally, we perform the shingle installation. The most well-known part to any roofing installment is installing the shingles themselves. We make sure that all of the shingles are secure and that each line is done properly. Any mistakes in this stage and put the rest of the roof in danger of impact and water damage.

- Any sign of missing or broken shingles in an area that covers over 30 percent of your roof.
- Dealing with continuous leaks or you are noticing stains in multiple areas of your home on the ceiling is a sign that your roof needs to be replaced.
- If the age of your roof exceeds 30 years, it may be time to start considering a roof replacement.
