Roof Replacement is needed when an entire roof needs to be fixed due to weather or other types of damage as we see often enough here in Jenks and the Tulsa surrounding areas. Where a roofing repair will no longer fix the damage. Roof replacement is determined by inspecting a "square", or 100 square foot area, for damages caused to the roof. If there is evidence of enough damage in a square on al sides of the house, then it will be necessary to conduct a full roof replacement instead of a roofing repair.
Roof replacement is much more complicated than a roofing repair and consists of 7 main steps to complete the job. First we remove all original shingles and make repairs to the wood in the roof, if it cannot be repaired, then it will be replaced. Then ice dam protection is installed to prevent backed up ice in the gutters during the winter, which can cause roof damage. Next a layer of asphalt paper is layed across the entire roof, followed by the shingles. Finally, flashing is applied to areas where leaks are likely to be prominent, such as around the chimney.
Replacing a roof takes around 2 to 4 days depending on factors like the weather. You may ask, "how much is all this going to cost?" The cost of the replacement is dependent on several factors - not just the type of material used. These factors include roof size (area), pitch, material, contractor and several other variable factors. In general you can expect to pay between $5,000 - $20,000 for a good roof replacement.
