Preparing for the Roof Installation

Preparation is key to a successful roof installation. Our team takes great care in preparing your property to ensure a smooth and efficient process. This includes setting up protective measures to safeguard your landscaping and property during the installation.

Ensuring a Solid Foundation

The integrity of your roof lies in its foundation. Our experts meticulously inspect the roof deck, identifying and replacing any sheathing with moisture or structural issues. This step is vital for preventing future complications and extending the lifespan of your new roof.

Installation of the eave drip edge and flashing is then carried out. These components are essential for water management, directing water away from the roof structure and preventing leaks.

Layering for Protection and Durability

The next phase involves installing the underlayment, a crucial layer that provides an additional barrier against water infiltration. Our team uses high-quality materials to ensure maximum protection.

Following the underlayment, starter shingles are installed. These are specifically designed to provide a strong starting point for the main shingles, ensuring a uniform and secure roofing surface.

The Final Touches: Shingles and Vents

The installation of the main shingles is where the visual transformation of your roof truly begins. Our team at Powers Premier Contracting ensures each shingle is perfectly aligned and secured, promising a roof that is as beautiful as it is durable.

The final step involves installing ridge vents or attic vents. These are crucial for maintaining proper attic ventilation, which plays a significant role in the overall health and efficiency of your roof.
