What is the process for a roof replacement?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018 by Lindsey Pierce


Whether you have experienced storm damage recently, you know you need a roof replacement, or would just like peace of mind knowing your roof is safe, it is important to get a roof inspection. Once you know the process, it makes the whole job run more smoothly! 

The first step is to get an inspection of the roof. At Armor Shield Exteriors, we provide FREE roof inspections to homes in Connecticut; just call our office and schedule an appointment! At the inspection, you will be greeted by our sales representative that will go over the process with you in greater detail. They will assess your roof and let you know exactly what kind of damage you have (storm damage, missing shingles, etc) and will provide you with all the details you need regarding pricing. Armor Shield Exteriors also works directly with your insurance company so you don't have to! 

Once you know everything from speaking with our sales representative, the next step is to decide what color shingles you would like for your roof. Our sales representative will give you a folder with all the information you need. All you have to do is sit back, go over the information, and let us know your decision when youre ready! This can be a good time to check out our before and after pictures on our website to get some inspiration or guidance on what will look best with your house. 

The next step will be the roof replacement job. On the day of the job, our project manager will deliver the dumpster to your home to collect all the previous materials as well as delivering all the new materials. This usually happens pretty early in the morning on the day of the job. Once everything is delivered, our team starts to work on your house right away. It is not required for you to be home while our team works on your roof. During this process, the home will be tarped and it will be loud, so if you have children or pets that scare easily, it may be best to take them out for the day! But again, that part is totally up to you! A common question at this point is how long this job takes. It typically takes only one day for a roof replacement, but depending on the size of the roof, it may go into the next day. This is something that either our office staff or project manager will go over with you! You also will not have to worry about cleaning up, our team takes care of all of that.

Once the job is complete, somebody from our office will give you a call to make sure everything went smoothly and you are satisfied with the job. After this, you will be able to enjoy your new roof for years to come, thanks to Armor Shield Exteriors!
