Roofing installation is essentially the process of adding a brand new roofing system to existing commercial or residential structures. The term is generally used in the context of new buildings, which are built from scratch and of course require an adequate roof but can also be used in the context of a rebuild or replacement scenario. Proper installation is extremely crucial for any building as it ensures the building and inhabitants’ health and longevity. It is therefore essential to find experienced and professional contractors who can perform the task.

Installation involves a number of methods, which are largely similar yet vary on the basis of factors such as the type, size, location, climate and/or purpose of the building. The process typically starts with selecting the material (which may include one or more of substances such as single-ply membranes, bitumen, metals, wood, slate, clay or asphalt). Then comes an examination of the roof deck to see if there are any defects or incompatibilities. This is followed by installing underlayment, flashing and ventilation systems - which function as barriers against intruders (like pests), prevent water damage and control moisture levels. Finally, the roofing materials gets installed, and finishing details on the edges are made. The last steps include a final inspection to ensure all areas are properly sealed.
