Roof Replacement 101

Getting a new roof installed on your house is a great way to update your home and potentially improve curb appeal. Here’s a simple outline of what you can expect in the days leading up to, during, and after your new roof installation.

Your Roofing Project: What to Expect Before, During, and After

A few days or a week leading up to installation day

Pro Tip: The Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt Shingle Recycling Program helps to turn old asphalt shingles into new roads. Be sure to ask your roofing contractor if they participate. Learn more about Asphalt Shingle Recycling.

Pro Tip: Ask your roofing contractor when this will occur so you can be prepared by moving cars or making sure someone is home, etc.

General – Roof Installation

Pro Tip: Work with your roofing contractor to understand if they are covering your flowers or shrubbery. If not, we recommend doing it yourself.

Final day/finishing up on the job

Pro Tip: Be sure you have talked about the cleanup process prior to the start of your job and if you are unhappy, ask the roofing contractor to do a secondary sweep for nails.

After your new roof has been installed (1-3 days later)

Pro Tip: Prior to signing the contract you should understand the warranty you will be getting and whether the contractor or you will be responsible for registering the warranty.
