Removal of Old Roof

Installation of Roofing Components
Once the old roofing materials are removed and all repairs are made to the roof then the new roofing system is installed. The roofing system will have several components that are installed such as ice dam protection, underlayment, shingles, etc….
Clean Up and Final Inspection
After all the roofing materials are installed the project manager will inspect the entire roof to look for any signs of problems. We’ll also make sure the entire area is cleaned and does not have any debris present.
