SHINGLE TEAR DOWN
In the first process of the project, the old roofing materials gets teared down. From the shingle to the underlayment and all lead boots and Goosenecks. Once we reach the plywood roof deck of the house, the wood is inspected and any rotten plywood and facia board gets replaced. After the plywood has been inspected, the roof deck gets re-nailed and secured against the houses trusses.
ROOF DRY IN
Next step in the project is called the Dry In. In this step the roof underlayment gets installed as well as the Drip Edge. The Drip Edge can be picked in different colors including White, Brown, Bronze or Gray. Color of the Drip Edge is Usually selected during your free estimate. When it comes to Underlayment, there are different types, each with its pros and cons. At Gabisa Construction we use Polystick underlayment*. This type of underlayment offers the highest protection as well as the best Water Barrier credit with most Home Insurance Companies. Once this process has been completed a City Inspection is called for a "Dry In" Inspection.
*Some counties only allow #30 Felt Underlayment. Ask your Sales Rep. during your Free Estimate
The last step in the process of getting a new roof is the Shingle Installation. In this final step, the shingles get installed as well as all the accessories. This includes new Lead Boots, Goosenecks, Cobra or Off-Ridge Vents as well as any other accessories required in that particular roof. After the Shingles and remaining accessories have been installed a Final City inspection is scheduled.

To assist avoid shingle blow-off, Pro-Start® Eave/Rake Starter Strips are produced with a high-quality, appropriately positioned adhesive applied at the manufacturer.
