Many people hire professional roofing contractors to complete the work.

It’s important to find the right shingles for the roof. Not all shingles are equal, and some will last longer than others. Some are also a much better value than others. If you use subpar materials, your replacement roof may not be up to your high standards.

When it comes time to replace the roof, make sure tarps are put on the ground to protect it and make clean-up easier. This is especially important because roofing nails and other things can be dangerous if not picked up and removed. Ropes and harnesses may need to be set up as well. Safety equipment is especially important on roofs with a steep incline.

Old shingles will need to removed. After the old roof is gone, the replacement crew can prep for installing a new roof. A waterproof membrane may need to be laid down. Flashing and new vents may also be installed. Then the crew will start installing starter shingles. After that, it’s time to install the replacement roof.
