These two before photos show how worn out the existing roof is, meaning it is clearly time for it to be replaced.
While the rubber roof clearly needed to be replaced, there can often be hidden damage underneath as well. The rotted wood in this roof is a prime example of this.
This image shows how severe the damage to the wooden foundation of the roof really was, as there is significant rot and deterioration throughout the roof.
After removing the damaged wood a new frame has been installed which will create a strong foundation for the new roof.
With the new wooden framework properly installed, the next step is laying out the plywood which will act as the first layer of the new roof.
With all of the wood properly installed, the crew begins to lay out and bolt down the new insulation boards for the new roof.
With all of the underlayments properly installed, the crew has finished this section of the roof by making sure that the rubber layer is properly wrapped around the edge of the roof to prevent any water from leaking in.
After completing a few finishing touches, the front entry to this home has been repaired and there will be no more issues stemming from the rotten wood issues.
At this property we rebuilt the front entry way to the house, with the largest focus being on replacing the worn out flat roof above the entry. We not only replaced that roof, but repaired a few areas around the trim as well. Call today for a free estimate on your roofing project!
