There are two events that lead to a new roof installation – building a new structure and roof replacement after the old one fails.
Installing a new roof can be complex based on the size of the business or home and materials required for proper installation. Unlike roof repairs that may be handled on a do-it-yourself basis, it’s recommended that a qualified and experienced local roofing company be hired for new roof installation.
There are many roof elements to be considered including decking, valley metal, ice and water shield, underlayment, drip edge, pipe boots, vents and flashing to start. Once you decide among materials – asphalt, tile, wood or concrete – for the roofing material, it adds even more layers of work.
Knowledge, experience and skill are big concerns for any roofing job. If the work isn’t done correctly the first time, all the money invested in a new roof may be lost when the roof fails too soon. One severe rain storm could push past protective metal flashing and send water gushing into your business or home.
Such damage – which should never occur following a professional roof installation – can be more expensive to repair than the entire cost of a new roof.
When it comes to installing a new roof, let the professional roofers handle this important job.
Roof Installation is Tough Work
As one of the largest roofing materials manufacturers openly states, “Roofing is tough.”
It’s tough because of the complexity of the work and the experience needed to deliver quality work. It’s tough, also, because of the danger involved with heights and equipment. It’s tough because you’re working outside in the elements, including 100-degree or hotter temperatures most of the roofing season in Central Texas.
How tough is roof work? Among professional roofing companies in Austin, a typical home new roof install for their trained and experienced crews takes a couple of days. By comparison, someone doing the work themselves with a helper or two may take a week or more.
For these reasons, all the top-rated roofing materials companies recommend using a professional local roofing company for all new roof installations. Ace Roofing Company in Austin can deliver the professional roof work you need, including ensuring all work is done within the manufacturer’s warranty requirements. This may also include building permits and other requirements you may not know to have in place.
Expert Roofer Can Handle Large Jobs
Installing a new roof requires various levels of skill and resources. There are differences between commercial and residential roof installations.
No two commercial roof installs are the same. Every business building has different obstacles that must be overcome to get the work done properly. There are seemingly endless options for new roof materials, and these must be installed properly on each building as needed.
Many commercial buildings have flat or low-slope roofs. Anything that comes up through the roof such as vents, air conditioners, pipes, etc., makes the job more complex. It takes professional-level planning to make sure all these concerns are accounted for in laying out any new roofing material.
Commercial roofs can be completed with various materials including built-up, single-ply membrane, liquid-applied coatings and metal. Your roofer must know how to install each of these and get the job done right the first time.
Installing a new residential roof may seem like a simpler job, but it has its many complications as well. Your home roof has varying pitches and slopes, valleys, pipes, chimneys, ventilation and decking that all must be considered.
Add in the unlimited options in roofing materials, and just ordering all the proper materials for the job can be overwhelming. Any delay while installing a roof can upset the entire job plan and cost more to complete all work.
When planning a new roof installation, let a professional roofing company do the work for you and provide you with the best quality new roof available.
