Understanding the Roof Installation Process
The new roof installation process may take as few as three or four days, depending on the size of your house. The process is similar whether you are starting anew or merely replacing a section. If you are replacing a single section, a professional contractor from Westshore Roofing Inc. will visit your home in San Jose, CA to assess any damage before beginning the process on your home. If you are installing a new roof entirely, we will take a careful approach to ensure precision and excellence. You can trust our team to provide high-quality installations that will last. Our steps include:
- If replacing an existing roof, we will begin by removing all shingles.
- If necessary, we will replace any bad or rotting wood with new plywood and make any other minor repairs.
- Install an ice guard membrane to prevent melting ice from penetrating your sheathing and causing severe moisture damage.
- Install asphalt roofing paper atop the sheathing. Asphalt roofing paper serves as an inner barrier against water penetration.
- Place metal drip edging around the edge, its eave sides, and gable sides. We will secure the metal drip edging over the asphalt roofing paper or ice guard.
- Apply new valley flashing in the areas where the two planes meet. We will nail this element to the deck before sealing it with it caulk.
- Install shingles by starting at the eaves and working toward the peak.
- Apply flashing around all areas prone to leaks, such as against the chimney and around stack vents or skylights.
- Install a ridge vent along the peak of the roof to promote air circulation in the attic space.
- Clean the work area and haul away debris.
Recognizing What Type of Roof to Install
The next step is deciding what type of roof you would like to install on your home in San Jose or the surrounding areas. The various styles have a wide range of prices, looks, and grades. Our team of professionals at Westshore Roofing Inc. is happy to help walk you through the decision-making process so you can be confident in your ultimate selection. Roofing types from which to choose include:
- Asphalt roofing – The most popular choice in the industry is asphalt. Asphalt shingles comprise fiberglass that is sandwiched between ceramic and asphalt granules. This style is popular because it is budget-friendly and durable. Our contractors are experts at installing asphalt shingles, so call us to learn more.
- Fake slate roofing shingles – The composite material of fake slate shingles gives the appearance of the real thing yet weighs roughly the same as asphalt. This style is more costly than asphalt shingles but less expensive than real slate.
- Metal roofing – With options including steel, aluminum, copper, and other materials, metal roofs comes in all shapes and textures. It is lightweight and easy to install but can be expensive and noisy during rainstorms.
