What do roof installation services include?

Roof installation is an essential part of home construction, home maintenance and renovation. This service includes all the activities necessary to ensure your home gets a roof put on properly to protect it from the elements and last for years to come. The service can include inspecting the existing support structure, modifying or installing a roof support structure and cleaning it as needed. The service continues with installing different parts of the roof depending on its type using the appropriate materials.  

Inspecting the roof structure

Your hired roofer begins the installation with a thorough visual inspection. They can make all the essential measurements to determine the amount and dimensions of the required materials. Should the job call for more materials, some roofers may offer to buy them.

Preparing the roof structure

Next, your hired roof installer prepares the rafters and other parts that make up the underlying roof structure. This can include cleaning the roof supports and underlying base of dirt, dust and debris to ready them for applying adhesives if appropriate. 

Some roof installation specialists can offer to reinforce the roof support structure or install a new one if necessary, but note that these can cost extra. You may consider hiring a carpenter to strengthen the underlying supports. They can cut whatever materials are required of the roof to the right lengths, widths and thicknesses. 

Installing the roof components

Once the rafters and materials are ready, your roofer proceeds to install the roof. They do this methodically and install, cut, attach, nail or glue each component in the right order and with the appropriate tools. Whether this is a flat roof EPDM roofing, rubber roof, fibreglass or glass roof installation, your hired roofer installs the roof following industry best practices per state standards and building codes. 

Finishing touches

After most of the roof components are installed, your roofer can install other finishing touches. This can involve trimming off excess felt or rubber layers, installing gables, flashing, vents and soffits. Some roofers may offer to install guttering systems as part of the service, but some may charge extra. Your roofer may conduct a final check and make small adjustments to ensure that all your roof components fit right. Once your roof is installed, how about hiring someone to put in the electrical wiring to make your home more comfortable?

Install roof sarking in existing garage roof


Narrabundah ACT, Australia

3rd Apr 2021

Full interior roof area to be sarked is about 20 sq.m. I will provide 40.5 sq.m of Bradford sarking so there is sufficient for overlap and wastage. Attach sarking to wooden beams inside roof to for dust and moisture barrier, with overlap to prevent water ingress. Seal as well as possible at the edges. I will provide staple gun to use for attaching the sarking. There is only one electrical wire in the area, and it is clear of the required sarking installation. I am very flexible with dates.

Higgins ACT, Australia

I have installed roof insulation batts into the main cavity of my roof, I need to finish doing the last of the batts from the outside of my house. This will require someone to use a ladder (supplied by me) to go around the outside of my house and slide the tiles up to put the batts in. I’m after someone who has had experience doing this before. My house is a 3 bedroom house and 1/4 of it has already been completed (prior to me buying the house). I estimate there is about 45 meters of house perimeter to be done. All batts and ladders supplied.
