REMOVE OLD ROOFING
When the Old Roof Must Go!
Unless you plan to double-shingle a roof, which is a cost effective option, but does leave something desiring in terms of appearance – then the old roof must go before installation. This process entails removing underlay and shingles, and also removing any rotten, damaged, displaced, or outdated materials below the shingle.
Removing an old roof is an expected process
For reasons that may be obvious, we want to remove the old roofing just before placing on the new roofing almost all the time. The process will usually involve bringing in a dumpster and having an action plan for the transfer of debris from the rooftop to the ground. A quality team will make sure the terrain below is cleaned up and that no excessive damage happens to landscaping materials or plants by half-hazard casting off material in all directions. Old roofing can be removed in sections or in one shot, to meet weather expectations, and also to account for separate roof sections that are not connected in any way.
Roof replacement can mean tearing off old shingles down to the decking, and then inspecting that material for any leaks or damage, fixing that, and following up with a good barrier from the elements. There are lots of roofing materials to choose from in terms of look and cost, but even the most budget wary can find a product that is worth putting on the home.
Removal is a labor-intensive process, and unless you are a DIY master it is suggested to leave it to professionals because loose roofing coupled with vigorous labor can lead to falls if one is not seasoned at handling the process.
