Top Roof Installation related questions
Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my roof installation?
No, this isn’t necessary. You can expect that your hired roof installers have all the right tools and equipment for the job, apart from the requisite skills and years of experience. What you can and should supply are all the materials needed to install the kind of roof you want.
How long does it take to do my roof installation?
Depending on the weather and type of roof, this can take one to several days. A roof installation can take a day only if the roof is a small one that’s not too steep (or even flat), temperatures are ideal, and the materials are ready. Roofing is best done and completed quickly in warm, dry weather. If the weather isn’t favourable, then your roofer will have to stop work and resume only when the weather permits.
Can a Tasker also help me with my roof installation service?
Yes. If you offer roof installation services yourself, and have more jobs than you can handle, book a Tasker to assist. You’ll find you can book a Tasker for hundreds if not thousands of different jobs. You can hire a roofer, electrician, carpenter or anyone that can help with home maintenance or construction jobs. The key is to make a post on our platform with all the necessary details. Our platform ensures that you get matched with the right Taskers!
Can I do roof installation myself?
It’s possible to do this yourself, but we don’t recommend it. Roof installation is laborious, time-consuming and risky. It’s precisely for these reasons that we suggest you book a capable Tasker near you instead. It would be best if you also didn’t attempt to do this yourself because apart from the danger, there are building codes and state regulations you may not know about. An expert roofer will know how to install your roof legally.
As a homeowner, what preparations should I make before my roof installation?
It’s recommended that you move potted plants away from the worksite, and cover plants near your walls with a tarp. Roofers walking on your roof can cause your walls to shake, so take down any paintings or pictures on your walls and shelves as these may topple. Keep pets and children away from the worksite. Loose shingles, broken tiles or nails can fall off the roof and injure anyone below.
What is the most common type of roofing?
The most common type of roofing is the single layer EPDM or ethylene propylene diene monomer. This is a type of flat roof that is favoured among homeowners and commercial property owners due to its relatively low cost. However, do note that this type of flat roof requires more maintenance. Before you consider this type of roof, consult with your roofing contractor if this is suited to your needs, weather conditions and state building codes and regulations.
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.
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?
