Basic process of roofing techniques

  1. 1. Basic process of roofing techniques http://thelegendgs.com.au/roof-restoration/
  2. 2. Roofing materials • We have to understand the basic types of roofing before the homeowner decide to install new roof or repairing old roof in their home. • First we have to understand the roofing materials and what kinds of roof suits for your home. • There are many types of shingles(http://thelegendgs.com.au/types-of-shingles- involved-in-roofing-process/) are available for your home and choose the best shingles that suits your home.
  3. 3. • Asphalt composite shingles: Cheap and easily obtainable, but less attractive than other options due to flat appearance. • Wood Shake: Pricey but attractive shingle. • Metal Roofing: Still rare, and few roofers know how to install it well; special companies are required for this job. • Slate Roofing: Highly attractive, and a high-end roofing option; extremely slippery to walk on. • Rubber Slate or Faux Slate: Recycled post-industrial synthetics gaining in popularity.
  4. 4. Remove shingles or roof over them • The weight issues are the main argument against laying additional layers of asphalt shingles is that the roofing materials can get too heavy for the underlying roof framing. • This can be a structural problem, especially for older houses. It is often said that a triple layer of asphalt shingles is equal to a single layer of slate shingles an exceedingly heavy type of material. • One other problem with shingling over existing shingles is that you are essentially repeating some of the surface irregularities that may already be there.
  5. 5. • Putting new shingles over that doesn’t do much for the aesthetic aspect. • One way to minimize this problem is to go over the old roof and correct as many problems as you can. • It doesn’t take much more than a hammer, some roofing nails, and a handful of shingles to correct the problem of bumps, gaps, and protruding nails. • Re-roofing –(http://www.slideshare.net/danielvhenny/helpful- steps-in-reroofing-the-house)Stripping up off the existing layer and then laying down the new layer adds more work to the process.
  6. 6. Best season for roofing • If roofers only wanted for perfect conditions to install a roof, they would go out of business. Extending work seasons helps roofers and consumers alike. • In most parts the optimal roofing season is from late spring to early fall. • Partially installed areas must be perfectly dry before any covering layers are installed.
  7. 7. Basic process in roofing • Remove all existing shingles, deposit them in a roll-off, and remove. • Make minor repairs on roof if in good condition. If not, replace bad wood with plywood, whichever is applicable to your roof. • Install ice dam protection barrier of synthetic materials to prevent backed up ice in the gutters which prevents ice-melt from draining away. • The ice-melt will permeate under the shingles and cause damage to the inside of your house.
  8. 8. • Lay down asphalt paper. • Apply the shingles - starting at the eaves and working upward. • Apply flashing around all areas where leaks might come into the house - against the chimney, stack vents, etc. • Install the ridge vent.
  9. 9. Saving cost • Roofing contractors have a great deal of flexibility to negotiate on the cost on roofing your home. • The roof restoration service (http://thelegendgs.com.au/roof-restoration-services- blog/)has highest professional standard for quality results and workmanship. • They will work according to adhere standards and regulations of roofing.
