A roof is a long-term investment for every homeowner. It protects them from the elements and increases energy efficiency and curb appeal. As the years go by, your roof will experience extensive wear and tear that calls for a roof repair or replacement. While roof replacement and new construction roofing may sound like similar concepts, there are a few key differences that sets them apart. A new construction roofing project lets you create a roof that is custom-made for your home and is an investment that will pay off in spades if pulled off properly.
Here’s what you should expect when you undertake a new construction roofing project.
Once your new construction roofing project begins, your contractor will inspect your home’s entire envelope and convert it into data. Afterwards, they’ll interpret the data along with the local climate and generate the appropriate decking, insulation and membrane type for your roof. The climate is an important factor in a new construction roofing project since your home will be exposed to weather elements all year round. Afterwards, the contractor can show you their recommendations that will suit your needs.
During the planning phase, your residential roofing contractor will visualize a mockup of your new roof that meets your requirements. These include the standard insulation, energy efficiency, color and performance requirements. This helps them choose the proper materials and finishes that will maximize your budget so you can get the most out of your new roof. You can raise any concerns to your contractor so that they can make appropriate adjustments if necessary.
The last part of the project is the installation phase. Before the installation process begins, review your contractor’s proposal thoroughly, and clarify any concerns before proceeding. Once the installation process begins, a project manager or general contractor is present to inspect the progress of your project and sees to it that everything is installed properly and that it adheres to your local building codes. After your new roof has been installed, the contractors will begin the cleanup process to remove any dirt and debris in the project area. Finally, you can enjoy your new roof for the years to come!
