CertainTeed Roofing Install Process


A roofing installation is typically a one-day process that broken up into three parts: current roof removal, preparation and underlayment, nailing new shingles. The job typically takes 1 to 2 days, depending on the size of your roof. 


First the crew will remove all the shingles on your roof, and then they'll inspect the roof deck (the plywood boards) for damage. If all looks good, they'll move on to adding ice and water shield, synthetic underlayment, starter strips, and more to prep the roof for the next phase.


The last piece of the project, which typically is the most rewarding for the homeowner, is watching the crew nail all of the new shingles onto the prepped deck. The change is immediate and quite striking! 


It sounds simple, but the roofing crew takes great pains to make sure the project goes smoothly and the product is installed perfectly so the warranty can be given by the manufacturer.
