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.

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?
