What to Expect When Replacing Your Roof

Hey there, dear friends and homeowners! 👋 I’m thrilled to share some valuable insights about roof replacements, straight from the seasoned perspective of a third-generation roofing contractor, yours truly! I’m proud to represent Ernie’s Roofing, a trusted roofing contractor in Denver since 1978. With our vast experience, we’ve learned the ins and outs of roof replacements, and I’m here to walk you through the process, step by step.

Understanding the Roof Replacement Journey

Before the Work Begins: Preparation is Key

Before your trusted roofer in Denver embarks on the replacement journey, a few things happen behind the scenes. First and foremost, materials are carefully selected and delivered to your doorstep. It’s like prepping for a grand home makeover! The crew will expertly place these materials on your roof or nearby, ensuring a seamless start to the project.

Bright and Early: The Early Bird Gets the Roof

Picture this: the sun is just rising, and your roofing crew arrives bright and early at 7:00 a.m. Why the early start, you ask? Well, starting early helps us beat the heat, ensuring that we can work efficiently and safely. You’ll notice our work trucks lined up, a sign of the dedication we bring to every project.

A Messy Affair: Embracing the Chaos

Now, I won’t sugarcoat it – a work site can be a bit chaotic. But worry not! Expect to see tools, materials, and even some trash scattered around. It’s a sign that your roof is undergoing a transformation, becoming even stronger and more reliable. We take care to protect your property, moving items like chairs and tables away from the action and covering surfaces with tarps.

The Symphony of Noise: Nails, Hammers, and Progress

Ah, the sweet sounds of progress! Brace yourself for the symphony of nail guns and hammers. It might get a bit noisy, especially if you’re indoors, but that’s music to our ears. It means your new roof is taking shape, ensuring your home stays cozy and leak-free.

Power Up: Access to Energy

Our crew might need access to power for their tools. Fear not, we’ll handle it seamlessly. We’ll either plug into your house or bring our trusty generator along. We’re all about efficiency and making sure your home life continues uninterrupted.

The Wait: Patience is a Virtue

Roof replacements are a blend of art and science. While many projects are completed in a day, some larger homes might take 2-3 days for perfection. It’s worth the wait, I promise. Your patience will be rewarded with a roof that not only protects but also enhances your home’s curb appeal.

The Grand Finale: Cleanup Galore

Once the roofing magic is done, it’s cleanup time! Our dedicated crew will tirelessly run around your house, picking up every last piece of trash. We even use a magnet to ensure no pesky nails are left behind, protecting your yard from any debris. Your home will be left spotless, ready to impress.
