New Roof West Orange NewJersey

New Roof West Orange New Jersey

A Roof Replacement in West Orange NJ started out this morning with a ring on the homeowners door bell. They were introduced to our foreman, Alex, as their point of contact during the roof application. He can answer any questions that may arise during the roof installation. The next step was installing Siding and Landscaping protection around their entire home to prevent any damage from the removal of the roof. We use our own Dumpster and ensure that it is placed on thick planks to protect the driveway at all times. Once property protection and the dumpster are in place, the entire crew will begin stripping the old layers of roofing down to the original decking. Once all the shingles are removed the deck will be inspected for any damaged or rotted wood. All questionable wood gets replaced with new CDX exterior grade plywood or 1x pine depending on the substrate. Once the deck is approved for roofing ice and water shield will be installed to code, a minimum of 24″ beyond interior walls, along all valleys and roof penetrations and any other potential problem areas. Next we will install premium synthetic underlayment on remaining roof surface. New metal drip edge will then be installed around the entire home. New roof shingle starters will then be installed around all rake and gutter edges. Once all the roof accessories are installed new 50-year CertainTeed Landmark Shingles were then installed to manufactures specifications. During shingle installation new Matching color vent pipe collars will be installed. Old flashing will be checked and replaced as possible. New Flashing and counter flashing will be installed on the chimney. New Ridge vent and ridge caps will be installed as the final cherry to the sundae.
