7 STEPS TO YOUR NEW ROOF
Myrtle Beach Roofer Blog
Step One: Make the Decision
Making the decision to replace your roof is the first step. We say the best time to get a new roof is always up to the customer but we can make professional recommendations based on the age of your roofing system, the condition, and expected lifetime of your existing roofing system!
Step Two: Choose Your Roofing Materials
The second step is choosing the right materials to be used. Replacing existing materials with more of the same is not necessarily the best choice, particularly if the exterior of your home has changed!

Tile protects your home from fire, high winds and blistering heat and is environmentally friendly. Tile is available in standard and light weight with a 50-year transferable warranty.
Although used less than other products, slate roofing not only provides a long term high end solution, it's also available at a reasonable cost when certain products are used.
Single Ply Systems (Alternative Roofing Material Option)
Single layer roofing material is a very clean process without flaming torches, smoking kettles and strong odors. The advantages of using this system are:
PVC and TPO membranes reinforced with polyester scrim are used more often because of their "Cool Roof" properties and superior seam strength
EDPM rubber is also used as a long term solution with unmatched durability
Low maintenance costs
Excellent resistance to environmental stresses including ozone and UV exposure, extreme weather conditions, chemicals and fire
Reflective surface color reduces energy costs

Step 5: Choose a Roofing System
Not every new roof needs every available roofing component to create a bullet-proof roofing system. Once you've chosen your shingle type, shingle color, and a company you trust to install your roof, we can discuss your options on what it will take to create a brilliant roofing system for your home.
Roof Deck Protection: due to the advanced quality of workmanship and products we use we will recommend that you either use 15 lb. felt paper, 30 lb. felt paper, or an alternative GAF solution.
Leak Barrier: because it is common that old roofs fail at the rakes and eves, we typically install WeatherWatch® leak barrier on all rakes and eves to provide extra protection for the more vulnerable areas of your roofing system.
Starter Strip Shingles: Pro-Start® pre-cut starter strip shingles help prevent shingle blow-offs because of their factory-applied adhesive strips. They are a great alternative to what many other roofing contractors do... Cut a shingle in half and nail it down for the starter shingle.
Cobra Attic Ventilation: Cobra® Ridge Vent 3™ helps remove excess heat and moisture from your attic that can raise your energy bills, cause premature peeling of interior paint and wallpaper, and even affect your health. This is a superior attic ventilation product! We will let you know if we recommend this product depending on the existing accessories on your roof currently.
Ridge Cap Shingles: the Ridge Cap Shingles that we install provide extra beauty and value to your home while guarding against leaks at the hips and ridges.
Step 6: Let Us Know When You Want Your New Roof Installed
We are flexible with our scheduling. Due to our busy schedule and seasonality, we try our absolute best to optimize our roof installation scheduling system to accomodate your scheduling requests.
All roofs that we schedule to install are subject to change depending on the weather but we still always try our best to work in a timeframe that suits you.
Step 7: Stop Worrying About Your Old Roof and Enjoy Your Beautiful Home
A consultation with our roofing professionals can help you decide which materials are best suited to achieving the results you want for your home.
