Ohio Roofing Solutions Services: Residential Roofing
A common form of residential roofing is the asphalt shingle. Asphalt shingling is relatively durable and can last up to 25 years or more before requiring replacement. It is virtually indestructible and holds up well under normal weather conditions. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and patterns, and some are designed to look like clay or wood tiles. The homeowner will want to ensure that the selected roofing company is able to fulfill all the necessary requirements to perform a quality job on the roof repair or installation.
The residential roofing process involves multiple steps to ensure successful completion. The day before the work is scheduled to begin, a trash receptacle and the roofing materials are delivered to the home. The roofing crew is required to attend a pre job meeting to review the details specific to the job. Upon arrival, the crew will inspect the new materials against the actual order. If everything matches up, the crew will begin the removal process of the old roof. If the roof deck exhibits signs of wear or damage, it will be repaired at this time. The new asphalt shingles will be installed once the roof deck has been sufficiently inspected and prepared.
Upon completion of the replacement process, the roofing crew will clean up using rakes, magnets and blowers. These items will be deposited in the provided trash receptacle. The field supervisor will perform a quality assurance inspection and ensure that all trash has been removed. This is a critical step to ensure that nails from the roofing process cannot embed themselves in the vehicle tires of the homeowners or cause other damage. If the homeowner is not home at this point, the field supervisor should leave a signed and dated notice of completion on the front door.
The length of time required to complete the job will depend partly on the weather. The average roofing job takes approximately two days. Prior to installing a new roof, homeowners are advised to remove paintings and photographs from the walls and to secure any shelved items to prevent damage. All items stored in the attic should be covered to prevent any debris from falling on them.
