Durable Siding For Your Home
If you are constructing a new home or performing full-scale renovations on your existing property, you may be concerned about the type of siding to use. There are a few different options out there, but the central theme is that you will need durable siding to stand the test of time. The last thing you want is to invest time and money into siding that starts to give away after a few years. Siding should last a minimum of a decade, if not longer. But what are the best options among siding for your home?
3 Simples Steps Which Makes Sure Your Roof or Siding Replacement Comes Out Looking Great
Correctly done, your new roof should come out looking nice and neat, with nothing but straight lines running from top to bottom, side to side. If done wrong, your new roof may end up coming out unlevel and crooked.
Whether you’re getting new architectural shingles, cedar shakes, or regular three-tab shingles, you’re going to want a professional roofing company that knows all the right steps and things to do when it comes to installing your new roof.
The Roof Replacement Process
Before we go in-depth into each step in the roof replacement process, here is a shortlist of the significant steps to happen when you get your new roof.
- Tear Off
- Applying New Shingles
Now let’s touch on each subject individually so you will have an idea of what exactly is going on when those roofers are up on your roof banging away for hours
Often, the most grueling part of the entire roof replacement process is the tearing off of your old roof. Nearly every time, your old roof is going to need to be taken off and eventually hauled away to a dump before you can put your new roof on and fix any problems you may have with your old roof.
Every inch of old shingles must be taken off, and the whole roof cleaned and swept away any loose debris before the next step of putting on felt can occur.
After your old roof has been removed, and any old nails or loose debris is removed, a clean layer of felt, or tar paper, must be laid down to help prevent your roof from any leaks.
The felt is laid down on top of the roof’s plywood and goes in between the plywood and the final layer of shingles. Felting a roof helps to prevent the ingress of moisture and to further waterproof your roof.
Tar paper or felt is not very wind resistant or sun resistant but does help prevent moisture from being trapped in your roof. The layer of shingles that goes on next will be what is going to protect your roof from the elements
Application of New Shingles
The final major step in your roof replacement is applying new shingles over the layer of felt that we just discussed.
The new layer of shingles that are put on must be appropriately aligned and cut perfectly for everything on your roof to match up and come out looking great. Roofers will often “cut lines” with chalk to ensure a straight top from end to end.
Customers have choices on what type of shingles they want, and different shingles offer different warranties for how long your roof will last.
Whichever type of shingles you choose to go with, you now know the steps of what will be going on when it comes time for your new roof replacement.
