Removing Your Existing Roof(s)
Tearing off an existing roof can be a loud and
dangerous process. There is a lot of weight coming off of your home all removed by hand, about
10,000 lbs on average. All of the material has to come off and is placed either directly into a
dump trailer or into ground dumpster. It is important to understand that we do this every day, and
that many homeowners only have a roof done once or twice in their lives. So again, if there are any
questions or concerns please give us a call at 352 754-8600 and we will be able to
answer any questions you may have.

Removing Your Existing Roof(s) And
Finding Bad Wood
During the removal of your existing roof is the
first time where the original roof deck is exposed, and we are able to assess the type
and amount of wood that should be replaced if any at all. Many homes require little to no new
wood, while others could need large sections replaced, this mainly depends on the condition
of the old roof, as far as undetected leaks went unnoticed and over time you end up with
rotted wood. Not all leaks make it into your house. On average about 40% of our
customers need no new wood at all. In the contract we state how much we charge for
hidden wood damage.
Installing Your New Roof
After we have removed your old roof and replaced any
rotten wood. (if needed) It is time to get prepare the roof deck for the new roof. These are
the steps involved in preparing your roof deck.
