The ingredients of a roofing system.
After selecting a good trustworthy contractor your project can now begin. In general you will not need to be involved with the process because you have hired a professional that knows what they are doing. It’s ok to ask questions during the re-roof if they come up. Be sure to communicate with your contractor if something isn’t being performed to the contract standards.
Here is a list of the basic steps of your projects.
The contractor will start by making sure all your valuables are protected. Any exposed decking in the line of fire or bushes that need to be protected are covered by tarps or drop cloths.
Hopefully you have had a trouble free re-roof and have been able to work through any discrepancies easily. This process is not easy but at this point you have a beautiful new roof you can be proud of and it will protect your home for years to come. Take time to go over the roof with your contractor, ask any questions and address any issues before making final payment.
