4. Install Day
Removal of old roof
The big day has arrived “The Install”. We will arrive on site and begin preparations to remove the old materials &/or debris created if it is a roof replacement, all debris are safely placed into dumpsters to avoid unnecessary messes or accidents. We do all we can to make the installation as clean as possible.
Preparing to Install New Roof
If it is a new roofing we will inspect the roof prior to the install to assure the previous trades have made the sub-surface ready for the roofing materials to be installed. If it is a roof that we have striped old shingles off we will inspect the sub-roofing plywood for necessary roof repairs or replacement requirements.
Installation of flashing, vents, drip edges*, felt paper, membranes*, ice shield & roofing shingles to completion and inspected by our senior site supervisor.
New Roofing System
Universe Roofing can completely tear off your existing roof system or re-roof over the existing roof (if conditions allow). Our trained professionals will evaluate this for you.
Next we place a layer of Felt Paper. Universe Roofing uses a high quality, fibreglass-reinforced felt, like Shingle-Mate from GAF. Shingle-Mate is superior standard #15 felt paper because it lays flatter, easier to work with, and most importantly, lasts longer.
Now we are ready to install the shingles. The shingles are installed by means of nailing with a nail gun at the standard tab marks.
Sealing up your home is important to conserving energy, but equally important is your homes ability to have ventilation. If homes have poor ventilation problems can occur such as peeling interior paint, stains on ceilings, or even mould and mildew. A good ventilation system is balanced, with intake (usually under the eaves) and exhaust (usually on or near peak of roof) vents working together to get stale air out and fresh air in. Ridge vents, like Certainteed’s ShingleVent II, are an effective ventilation tool and look great, too. Because the vent is covered with shingles, it is hardly noticeable and that adds beauty to the overall appearance of your home.
Care is taken to assure materials removed or debris created from the installation are safely placed into dumpsters to avoid unnecessary messes or accidents. We do all we can to make the installation as clean as possible.
