New Roof Installation
Professional and Reliable Roofing Contractors will follow the manufacture’s installation directions. This begins with the underlayment, drip edge, flashings and then the shingles. All roofing materials need to start square with the edge of the new roof. This ensures proper and even installation.
Starter Strip Installation
The first item that needs installed after the underlayment is starter strip. It is a special shingle designed to hold the first row and edges of your roof down. It is installed everywhere there is drip edge. Some roofer simply use a flipped around shingle, but this does not deal the edge of the roof. It might save them some time and the expense of the special start shingle, but it can lead to wind damage and water penetration on your new roof.
Shingles are then installed in a staggered pattern according to the manufactures directions to ensure their warranty requirements are met. Nails are placed in their nail zone according to their directions to ensure their highest available wind warranty.
Ventilation and Other Accessories
Once the shingles are installed the next step is ventilation and other accessories. This is where the pipe boots will be installed. Depending on the style of roof you have there are several types of ventilation. Your roof may need new box vents, turbine vents, ridge vents or power vents.
