Roofing is a procedural process. Here is a basis step by step process that we follow at Myers:
Water and leak protection
In new roof installation, rain water driven by winds can leak into the roof’s deck. Melting of snow and ice may also find its way in poor underlayment. We use an ice and water shield on rakes, eaves and edges to prevent such leakages.
We install starter shingles hanging just over the drip edge. The initial full-size shingle course is installed on top of the starter shingle. In regular roofs, we use 4 nails per shingle while in sloppy pitched roofs we use 6 nails per shingle.
Roof valleys are areas whereby one section of a roof slopes to meet another set of shingles. These low areas are therefore prone to leakages and are given maximum attention. Areas of the roof that are very steep particularly receive great care from our installers.
Installation of flashing
Flashing is used in roofing to prevent water seepage. We replace old flashing with new rubber ones. We use aluminum flushing for chimney counter flashing because tar is less durable.
Finishing – Ridge cap and hip shingles
After completing the roofing process, we will carry out a finishing touch. This includes installing hip shingles for a hip roof. These will be overlapped by ridge shingles. For gable roofs with ridge shingles, we place one hip cap at one end of the ridge and another cap goes at the other end.
