When building a house or replacing an old roof, the roofing process is essential. To ensure a durable and strong roof, it involves several steps that must be carefully planned and carried out. We'll walk you through each step of the roofing process in this blog post.
STAGE 1: Setting up
Our crews must set up the work area before any work can start. This entails measuring the roof and gathering all the required supplies and equipment.
STAGE 2: Tear off
The old roofing materials need to be removed in the following step. The tear-off stage is where this is at. The old shingles, underlayment, and other roofing materials will be removed by the crews using a variety of tools, such as roofing shovels. To ensure the new roof has a sturdy foundation, it is imperative to completely remove all of the old materials.
STAGE 3: Woodwork
Examining the wood decking beneath requires removing the old materials first. It must be repaired or replaced if there is any damage, such as rot or cracks. To make sure the roof is structurally sound and can support the weight of the new materials, it is crucial to complete this step.
STAGE 4: Underlayment installation
After fixing the wood decking, we lay down a layer of underlayment. This additional layer of water resistance is added over the wood decking and is made of a waterproof material.
STAGE 5: Roofing
Our roofers can start installing the new roof once the underlayment is put in place. Asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and tile roofing are just a few of the numerous types of roofing materials that are offered. The homeowner's preference and budget will determine which material is used. Each material has specific benefits and drawbacks.

STAGE 6: Clean up
Cleanup is the last step in the roofing process. Any leftover materials, tools, and equipment will be taken away from the site by Moriarty's Roofing. Additionally, we'll use a magnetic roller to gather any nails or other metal fragments that might have landed on the ground during the tear-off or roofing stages. In order for the homeowner to enjoy their new roof, the area will be left tidy and clean.
There are several steps in the roofing process that call for careful planning and execution. To guarantee that the roof is structurally sound and offers sufficient protection from the elements, each step is crucial. We can guarantee a successful and long-lasting roofing project by adhering to these steps.
Kind regards from the Moriarty's Roofing Family.
