Feb 22, 2020 : When Should I Replace My NJ Roof and What can I expect?

Spring and early summer are generally cost-effective times to have your NJ roof repaired or replaced, as it is generally a slower time of year for roofing companies in our area, and materials and labor costs tend to be lower.

How long can I expect it to take?

you can expect a typical roof replacement on a 1,000-2,000 sq. ft. home to take anywhere from 1-3 days.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Roof Replacement?

A typical all-perils homeowners insurance policy covers the replacement of a roof, regardless of age, only if it is the result of an act of nature. Roofs that have exceeded their intended life span are not eligible for replacement because they fall under the general maintenance responsibility of the homeowner.

What are the expected steps to Residential Roof Replacement?

#1 – Property Protection. Magnolia Home Remodeling’s roofing team makes sure that your entire property is fully protected while roofing replacement is underway. This includes siding, walls, plants, bushes, etc. using tarps and protection plywood where needed.
#2 – Removal of Old Roofing Material. All old shingles will be completely removed in order to inspect the wood decking underneath.
#3 – Roofing Inspection. Each roof replacement project begins with a thorough inspection of the wood decking. Soft, wet or rotted wood needs to be replaced because only when you have a solid base for your roofing structure can your shingles stay intact. We also check for missing nails and take care of that or after several weeks you will see ‘bumps’ on your roof.
#4 – Preparing The Roof Surface For Shingles. Next, its time to install any roof flashing in place that isn’t already there. Then, install a drip edge, an ice and water barrier, and an underlayment.
#5 – New Roofing Material Installation. Once the base is ready, its time to start laying out the new roofing material, working from the bottom up,  followed by step and/or counter flashing, ridge vents, and ridge capping installation, as needed.
#6 – Site Cleanup. Magnolia Home Remodeling believes in leaving a job site cleaner than it had been before we came in.

#7 – Final Inspection. The Magnolia Home Remodeling roofing team will perform a post-roofing inspection. We want to make sure that your roof replacement is done correctly and that it meets with your complete satisfaction.
