Roofer in Springfield Illinois
Roof removal, also known as “tear-off” to done at the end of a roof’s useful life, or when it has become too damaged or compromised to be effective, to make room for new material to be installed. While it can be a costly project, it’s necessary to protect the home and prevent leaks from forming. Since there are several aspects that go into the cost of a roof replacement in Springfield, IL, we complete a thorough inspection before compiling a quote and beginning a job.
The removal process begins by removing the shingles until they are gone and the decking underneath is completely exposed. As the decking is the last line of defense against water, it’s imperative that its inspected thoroughly for problem areas. In most cases, the decking will also be removed to allow examination of structural framework beneath. As the foundation of the roof, the studs in this framework are prone to damage from water, insects, and other issues, leading to major issues if not caught early. If necessary, cross beams are added to create additional support. Then, new decking material is installed, followed by underlayment. You’ll notice that the underlayment is overlapped at the edges to ensure there are no gaps or areas for water to easily seep in. Finally, the roofing material is installed and the area surrounding the home is cleared of debris.
As Springfield, IL roofing contractors, we understand that should only complete tear-offs when there are several days of clear weather predicted. The worst thing than can happen is rain occurring mid-project, compromising the integrity of the roof.
