Roof Replacement Process: What You Should Expect

Need a new roof? Here what you need to know about the process

If you’ve never had your roof replaced, you might be wondering how the roof replacement process works. It’s a big job, after all, and it’s good to understand the project from start to finish before any work begins on your home!

Here at JW Roofing, our process for replacing roofs was developed over the course of many years spent in the roofing industry. Along the way, we take several steps to ensure maximum customer satisfaction while building a reliable roof that will protect your home for years to come. While some steps will likely vary from roofer to roofer, here’s what you can typically expect during the roof replacement process!

Preliminary inspection

When your roof sustains damage or has deteriorated noticeably, the first step is always to have it inspected by a professional. An expert roofer will be able to determine the overall health of your roof and determine whether repairing or replacing it is the best option. Of course, in this case, we’re assuming that a roof replacement is recommended!

Mapping out the roof replacement process

One of the early steps of the roof replacement process is to, well, plan out the entire process! Typically, this will involve your roofer working with you to pick out the dates when they’ll be working on your home. 

This step also includes selecting the materials and construction you would like for your roof. Since this is a replacement, rather than a repair, that opens the door to bigger changes to your roof’s design, if you so choose.

Before work begins: protecting your property

This part of the roof replacement process is one that often differs from roofer to roofer. Some roofers will simply get to work with the teardown of your old roof, which typically creates a huge mess that will be difficult to clean up.

At JW Roofing, we take extra steps to protect your property using the Catch-All system. This unique system keeps your landscaping and home exterior safe from home while also making cleanup much more efficient and effective.

Completing your roof replacement

With all of the preliminary preparations complete, it’s time to replace your roof! Depending on the state of your roof, some portions of your roof’s construction may be left in place. If your roof was damaged on a deep, structural level, though, your roofer may tear it down completely. Once teardown is complete, your roofer will install your brand-new roofing system.

Cleanup and debris removal

After completing your roof, it’s time to tidy up and remove all the debris created during the teardown process. This is another area where roofers will likely differ in their process. Some roofers are less thorough than others when it comes to removing as much debris as possible from your property before they leave.

Here at JW Roofing, we take this step very seriously. Leaving a mess behind just gives you another headache to deal with. That’s why we always aim to leave your home exactly as we found it—with a brand-new roof, of course!

Post-replacement inspection

For many roofing companies, cleanup is where the process ends. At JW Roofing, however, we want to make sure our customers are completely satisfied with their new roof. To ensure complete satisfaction, we perform a final, post-replacement inspection and walkthrough for final approval from the homeowners. As a small, local business, our customers are our top priority—and to us, that makes satisfaction a non-negotiable requirement!
