The first step in the Garrison Roofing process is handling your estimate request. Whether you call in and speak to us or submit an online estimate request form, we will be able to provide you with a free estimate handled by one of our roofing professionals.
Once a roofing professional has come out, you will receive a proposal for the work that we are able to perform. After your approve the proposal, call our office for help with your color choice.
We require NO MONEY DOWN and payment is not due until the job is complete.
Scheduling Your Job
The third step in the Garrison Roofing Process is to prepare for the work to begin. We will select the best crew for your project and a time for the work to begin (weather permitting). You will be notified with a date for work to begin.
Preparing the Job Site
When the crew arrives, they will begin setting up everything needed to complete your job. This may include tarps, ladders, plywood, extension cords, etc. If there are any questions that you would like to ask during any part of this process, please give us a call. It is always best to inform us of any concerns as soon as possible so we can address them.
Tearing Off Your Roof
Tearing off an existing roof can be a loud and dangerous process. There is a lot of weight coming off of your home, about 10,000 lbs on average. All of this material has to come off and is placed either directly into a dumpster or on the ground and removed by hand. It is important to understand that we do this everyday, and that many homeowners only have a roof done once or twice in their lives. So again, if there are any questions or concerns please give us a call and we will be able to answer any questions you may have.
During the tear off process the original roof deck is exposed. At this time we will be able to assess the type and amount of wood that should be replaced. .
Installing Your New Roof
With a solid deck to work with, we are ready to begin installing your roof system which consists of 4 parts.
- Ice Barrier is installed at the eves and in valleys of heated spaces. This is a self-sticking membrane, designed to resist melt water from entering the house if it backs up under the shingles when ice dams are occurring.
- Felt Paper is added over the remaining exposed decking was originally installed to protect the shingles from the sap in new roofing boards. Today its main function is to backup the shingles in situations of extreme windblown rain.
- Detail elements such as vents, step flashings, chimney flashings, pipe flashings and metal drip edgings are then added. Our crews take pride in building a roof system that not only looks great but will provide years of worry free service.
- Shingles are then added and it starts to look like a roof again. Anyone can claim to be a roofer and slap on shingles, but few roofers have the hands on experience, installing hundreds of successful projects year in year out, with Garrison Roofing's ongoing training, support and inspections.
Once everything has been completed, we will sweep and haul away all of the debris around the house. If there was a dumpster used at your property it will be removed after the job has been completed. Lastly and most importantly, you can start enjoying your new roof!
