Underlayment Repair

Underlayment has a very important job and must be inspected when a new roof is installed. Here is the key point of underlayment and its purpose:

  • It protects the plywood decking from exterior elements
  • Shed moisture to help prevent mold and mildew
  • Prevents leaks from entering the home
  • Maintains a quality barrier between the actual roof and the decking

Disposal of old material

In most cases, the old roofing material must be removed and discarded before the new can be installed. Please make sure your roofing company places tarps around your landscape and property to ensure simple cleanup and protection of your home. Ask if there are additional fees for the removal and disposal of the old roofing material.

Gutter Inspection

Gutters are a key component of a quality working roofing system. The main purpose of a gutter system is to effectively collect rainwater from your roof, and channel it to the ground through a downspout. When the gutter system fails, the water will seep through holes and areas of rust, potentially creating complications with excess water near your foundation.
