New Roof Installation Process

Having a new roof installed isn’t something one should try to do by themselves. It takes years of training for roofing contractors to hone their professional trade skills. Licensed Roofers are necessary for a few reasons. For one, their trained eye is crucial for an aligned roof, because inches and even millimeters can warp the look of your new roof and ruin the installation. Secondly, you might think you’re trying to save money by doing it yourself.

On the contrary, if the roof is not done correctly and it begins to fall apart, then you’ve not only wasted money, you have wasted time, as it will need to be redone. So now that you understand why you need to hire a professional roofing contractor, let’s take a look at the new roof installation process from the beginning to the end below:

Everybody knows that a roof protects you and your family from the harsh outside elements but many do not realize that when you make an educated decision to invest in a new roof installation, it also increases the value of your home in several ways.

At Thompson Roofing, our expert roof installation contractors use the highest quality materials to create your new roof. You and your family will feel safe and sleep comfortably at night knowing that a professionally installed roof was finished and done right the first time.

Roofing Types Available

There are several types of roofing material available when you work with Thompson Roofing. We are experienced and work with, asphalt shingles, cedar shake, clay & tile, metal roofs, and in commercial roofing we work with flat roofs for businesses and other buildings that have a flat surface.

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material used because of their durability and affordability. Cedar shake (shingles) made from natural hard cedar; are strong and long-lasting but are prone to water damage, color disfiguration and the shakes can warp. Clay, Tile and metal roofing materials are extremely rugged and protective but because of the extra weight and modifications that need to be applied to the roof to support it, they are not used as often by homeowners.

After nearly 30 years in roofing, we have noticed that the #1 reason customers decide on a roofing material for their new roof installation is the price. As stated above, Asphalt shingles are the most budget-friendly, so it is no surprise that they are the most sought after. With that being said, we provide the highest-quality materials, so Asphalt shingles are still a great roofing option regardless of price.

Clients often choose Cedar shake, clay or tile shingles for their unique beauty and ingenuity. Cedar shingles give a home a rural or county style appearance while clay & tile present a more urban or modern look. Although many choose these options to stand out from the crowd and prefer originality, these type of materials for your roof installation will be the most expensive overall option.
