The process begins with a thorough inspection of your roof. This will allow the roof installation crew to know what kind of materials they will need to use and whether they need to rent or purchase supplies. Once the inspection is over, the crew will prepare the area by removing any obstacles such as overhead trees and electrical wires. Once everything has been removed, they will start to install the nails and shingles using high quality steel and custom-made nails that were specially designed for each individual roof. After the nails are set, the crew will then install the flashing underneath.
