Our Re-Roofing Process
The first step in our re-roofing services is to make the area safe before any other work begins. Our employees practice the best procedures to keep themselves, and your assets, safe.
Once we secure the area, we perform the following re-roofing steps:
1. Remove Existing Roof Material
We first have to remove the existing tiles and ridges, or metal roof sheets. We safely and responsibly dispose of the waste product.
2. Inspect Roof Timbers
After removing the old roofing material, we inspect the roof timbers and battens to ensure they are solid, sturdy and safe.
3. Install Insulation and Battens
Once the roof is removed, we can install optional insulation and additional battens where necessary. Our roofing specialists assess the existing battens and perform any needed repairs or replacements.
4. Lay and Secure the Roof Material
Metal roofing sheets are cut to measure and precisely fixed in place. The metal roof sheets overlap on the peaks of the material to ensure that water runs away from the joint.
5. Install Capping
Where the roofing material meets at the ridges of your roof, metal capping is used to cover the joint and attached in the same manner as the roof sheets.
6. Final Touches
Once the roofing material has been fully installed, our roofers will ensure that the final details are not overlooked, as well as any other finishing detail that your re-roofing service requires.
7. Finish and Clean Up
Finally, we remove the safety equipment we installed and clean up the area, safely disposing of any waste. That’s how we go about re-roofing Melbourne homes. After that, you’re all ready to enjoy your beautiful new roof.
