What to Expect When Replacing Your Roof

When the integrity of your roof is compromised, the first thing to do is call your trusted Orlando roofing contractor for an inspection and quote. Just as you shouldn’t delay scheduling a medical appointment when necessary, getting your roof checked out immediately can save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run. Once you have selected your Orlando roofing company, the next step is to begin work. A great roofer will make sure your house is protected during the replacement and will help you understand the work that will be done. We know that getting your roof replaced seems complex, but understanding the process will bring you peace of mind before, during, and after the job is done. If you are facing a roof replacement decision in the near future, consider the following summary on what the entire process entails.

Pre-replacement

Janney Roofing does everything we can to prep and protect your home before working on your roof and we need your help to minimize any risks of damages to your property. We will suggest certain articles and items that should be covered or relocated and removed until your roof work is done, such as potted plants, hanging pictures, cars and boats, etc. Roof replacements usually take a few days to complete and we want to keep your valuables in good condition.

During the replacement

We will arrive early to your home on the scheduled start date and begin the initial tear-off work. Our expert crews will remove your shingles, or other roof material, all the way down to the decking. At this point, any hidden wood damage or other underlying issues will be seen and we will discuss the best options to move forward. We understand that replacing your roof is a big investment, so we do our best to keep any further needed additions within reason and we try to limit any delays to the entire process. Following, the wood decking is replaced and the underlayment is attached to the decking according to current code standards. Flashing, drip edge, shingles and trim materials of your choice are then securely attached to your roof and inspected to make sure that all features pertaining to your roof were carefully installed. We want your roof to be completely protected.

Post-replacement

After your roof has been replaced, we begin our meticulous clean-up process. Our roofers do an initial cleaning of leftover materials, and then we have one of our designated team members come by your home again and review any areas of concern with you prior to doing a final cleanliness inspection. We want to leave your yard and the perimeters of your home free of any debris left behind by the job. We use a large magnet to locate nails that were missed, a leaf blower to take care of any dirt or particles that stay on your walkways and/or driveway, and we have extra materials to clean up any further areas as needed. After the cleanup process, we will do a final walk through with you and then give you all related warranty information.

These three stages give you an overview of the roof replacement process. Once the work has been completed and we know that you are satisfied, your roof and home are ready to be enjoyed again. As your preferred Orlando roofing company, we pride ourselves in quality work done with honesty and integrity. To learn more and to request a free estimate, click here!
