Re-roofing begins with job site prep: providing for a safe workplace and a method of collecting and storing demolition debris.

The team starts by tearing off all the old asphalt shingles and roofing underlayment, down to the sheathing, which will be inspected and repaired as needed.

Next, drip edge and new roof underlayment are installed.

Layout and installation of new asphalt shingles follows. Finally the roofers will install a ridge vent and soffit vents to provide ventilation.
