Building your new home should be as exciting and stress-free as possible. The more you know about the process of homebuilding, the more prepared you will be during the completion of your new home. That’s why the professionals at [company_name] make it a point to keep you informed about our roof construction process.
Roof construction is one major stage of homebuilding and often makes the idea of a new home an actuality. The following outline of our process will keep you up-to-date about how we construct our most common quality roofs. Some steps may be added, omitted or modified, depending on your roofing project.
- Framing Your Roof
The experts at [company_name] will first start constructing the frame of your roof. Most roofs have a system of pitched frames to support the structure and its covering. Trussed roof frames, commonly known as A-frames, are often pre-manufactured and brought to the construction site. These frames vary in shape and size in order to meet the needs of a variety of roof styles.The frame will be secured and reinforced at the top point of the roof, then attached to the side walls of the house. This ensures the frame’s stability and allows it to support the roof covering.
- Applying Decking
Once the frame is in place, our team will apply sheets of plywood or OSB to the roof. Starting at the lowest point, the sheets will be secured into place. Once the entire frame is covered, the decking installation is complete.
- Tar Papering
Tar paper serves as a protective layer and is applied to the decking before the application of a roof covering. Tar paper is waterproof and will provide protection for your home for years to come. One of the professionals at [company_name] will cut the tar paper to the appropriate size and then secure it to the entire roof system.
- Covering Your Roof
The final stage of roof construction is the application of an outer roof covering. There are a variety of coverings to choose from, including asphalt shingles, metal sheets or tiles. Our expert roofers will apply whichever covering you want for your new home.
