What's Included In Your Pearland Roof Replacement
Thinking about getting a Pearland roof replacement? If so, you might be wondering what a roof replacement entails, especially because roof replacement can get pricey sometimes. In this article, our Houston roofing company will explain everything included in your roof replacement so you are well-informed when the time comes to invest in one.
Roof Replacement Includes Many Steps
In addition to paying for materials and the service, roof replacement includes a series of steps we follow to a T to ensure that your roof is installed with high-quality protection in mind. Here are the steps we follow that are included with your roof replacement.
Stripping Your Old, Damaged Pearland Roofing
When it comes to your Pearland roof replacement, we begin by stripping down all of your current roofing until we reach the decking. To do so, we rip off all of your roof shingles and the underlying felt that protects the deck from getting wet.
Waterproof The Decking Of Your Pearland Roof
Once your roof is stripped, we will inspect the wood decking to determine whether it is compromised or not. If it is, we may have to replace it as well, but this likely won’t be a surprising addition to your estimate. This is because, when we provide you with our initial estimate, we factor in the possibility of additional unforeseen costs due to damage we later uncover while tearing down your roof.
If the decking is perfectly in-tact, we’ll waterproof it with underlayment. Our Pearland roofing company uses 30-pound felt to waterproof the deck as well as your roof’s valleys. Once waterproofed, it’s time for us to install your brand new roof shingles, based on which type of roofing shingles you purchased.
Replace Old Roof Jacks
Once your new roof shingles are installed, we’ll work on replacing the older roof jacks that cover the piping on your roof. This will ensure as much protection as possible from areas that may tend to be prone to leaking. We will replace these and get them up to code for you and attach vent caps as well.
Replace Your Old Roof Flashing
Even if your roof was initially built really well, certain areas need to be sealed properly so as to prevent leaks simply because, otherwise, they are more prone to leaking. This includes components like skylights, valleys, and your chimney, so they are reinforced with flashing in order to provide extra waterproofing. When we complete a Pearland roof replacement, we tear down your existing roof flashing and install brand new flashing, as well as paint it so it blends in with the rest of your roofing.
