Is your asphalt shingle roof peeling, buckling or lifting? Do you find missing roof materials in your yard after a windstorm? Are there missing or bare looking shingles or tiles? Have you been told by others that your roof is ready for replacement?
At East Fork Roofing, our sophisticated estimating system allows us to quote your roof replacement in as little as 5 business days using aerial imagery, without a site visit.
All our replacement proposals come standard with a wide variety of different colors and styles of asphalt shingles – all of them manufactured with the highest quality material available.
As a Malarkey Certified Contractor, we have the relationship to provide strong support
after the project if warranty issues occur.
Roof Replacement Process
Prepare Aerial Imagery Proposal
Using specialized roofing software that allows us to measure your roof via aerial imagery (satellite and airplane images), we determine the size of your roof. We also conduct a risk and scenario analysis. We combine the risk, scenario, and measurement data to generate a proposal of what it would cost you to do a basic roof and we also provide pricing for any anticipated scenarios we may encounter.
Acceptance, Review, and Planning Stage
Upon your acceptance of our proposal and receipt of down payment or approval of project financing, we will conduct what we call a “contingency inspection.” This inspection is conducted by a foreman who will be responsible for execution of your project.
The purpose of this visit is for the foreman to complete an in depth analysis of the entire project and determine which, if any, of the proposed scenarios apply to this project. They also plan the details of the execution of the project, which many of our competitors may or may not do until day of the project or ever.
These details include:
dumpster and ground tarp placement, a project safety plan, a property protection plan, and a building code evaluation. This step helps ensure your project is ready to begin the roofing process and prevent delays during the project.
Roof Removal (Tear-off)
For the best results we’ll completely remove the old layers to ensure that the decking is sound. During the removal, the entire team is looking for defective decking and determining, if any, needs to be replaced. Any decking that is not capable of providing support of the weight of the roofing or capable of holding the nails, will be replaced prior to install.
Prepare the roof for new shingles
We’ll install drip edge along your roof’s edges, as required by building code, to prevent long term damage to fascia and wood around the perimeter of your roof. Roofing felt will then be installed to provide the first layer of moisture protection.
Next, new shingles are installed from the bottom up, including starter strip for enhanced wind protection, flashing, ridge vents and ridge capping, as necessary. One thing that differentiates us from the guy with a ladder and a truck is that we always use the manufacturer’s recommended materials to ensure a 130 mph wind warranty.
While we spend time every day cleaning up our mess, we do a final clean-up when we’re done. Our goal is to leave your property cleaner than before our project.
Wrap-up and final inspection
Once the job is completed, the same foreman who did the upfront inspection of the project, does a thorough inspection to make sure the roof replacement meets our internal quality standards and every part of the project was completed as requested. By having this completed by the same person that set up the project, we ensure the project was executed as agreed. If any issues occurred during the project, this process cannot
be closed until all issues are resolved.
