We get it. Replacing your roof isn’t exactly a fun home improvement project. But, when your roof is damaged, it’s a necessary one and it’s a high-value project at that. Here in the Charlotte area, a roof replacement has an average return on investment between 55% and 60%.
Before scheduling your roofing project, continue reading through this guide to learn what’s included in the price so you know exactly what to expect when you hire the Southern Home Services team.
Initial Roof Inspection
Before we do any work on your roof, we’ll start by giving it a thorough inspection. We’ll use this time to assess any damage, take measurements of the area, and create recommendations for your roof replacement. This is also when we’ll give you an accurate estimate of the budget and timeline for the project.
New Roofing Materials
After we complete your inspection, we’ll talk to you about the different materials available for your project. Here at Southern Home Services, we proudly install high-quality roofing materials from industry-leading companies like GAF and CertainTeed.
Both of these companies offer a variety of different shingle colors and designs, making it easy for you to find something that perfectly complements the rest of your home’s exterior.
Removing Your Old Roof
Once you’ve selected your new materials, it’s time for our team to get to work! We’ll start by removing your old roofing materials, down to the decking. If your decking is still in good shape, we’ll use it, rebuilding your new roof on top of it. However, if it has any signs of damage, we’ll talk to you about removing it and replacing it with new decking that’s more structurally sound.
Installing Your New Roof
This stage of the roof replacement process generally takes the longest, especially if you have a large or very steep roof. During the process, we’ll install a water shield, new sealants, and flashing, to protect your home from water damage. Then, we’ll install a replacement drip edge, ridge ventilation, and your new shingles to finish up the project.
After we finish installing your new roof, we’ll go through our extensive clean-up process. We’ll remove any debris from the project, carefully checking your yard for nails and other materials. We’ll then haul away the debris and recycle or repurpose these materials when possible. Our goal is always to leave your home in immaculate condition as if we were never there.
Finally, we’ll give you a complete overview of everything we’ve done and answer any remaining questions you have.
