What is a roof installation?

An installation of a roof is in essence a roof replacement, unless you are building your home from the ground up, which in that case would be a brand-new roof added to protect your home. This is an essential process to expand the life and the safety of your home. When done well a new roof can last you from 30-50 years. But what goes into replacing a roof?

How much does a Roof Installation Cost?

The price of a roof can vary depending on the size and shape of your roof as well as the type of roof you have and the type of roof you desire. Most times a roof installation can range from $8,000- $40,000 . Although it is important to note that the exact price can only be determined once a thorough roof inspection is done by a professional.

What Happens During A Roof Installation?

The installation process of a roof varies depending on the type of home you have and the type of roof you are looking for. Nonetheless, there are some basics to the process that we can go over.


  1. Roof Inspection: This requires a run through of a home’s roof. Many times, requiring one to pull out a ladder to do a walk around on the roof.
  2. Old Roof Removal: This is possibly the messiest part of the project. After all the old parts of the roof are removed the roofers can get a better look at what is happening underneath the surface allowing them to give the home a thorough inspection.
  3. Underlayment Installation: Now that the roof is cleared the base process begins. A layer of protection is added to the deck of the roof giving the home an added layer of protection against natural threats such as water, ice, and mold.
  4. Shingle Install: Once the base is set up the roofers begin laying down your shingles of choice. Today there are plenty of options to fit any taste a homeowner may have. There are also many options with certain benefits depending on the region in which a homeowner resides.
  5. Vent Installation: A small but completely necessary part of the roof installation is the installment of vents. The ventilation system allows airflow to go through your roof preventing your shingles from bubbling up.
  6. Final Sweep: The last step would be to leave the home clean and ready for the homeowner to enjoy. Due to all the tools used throughout the process, it is necessary to do a final sweep of any debris or nails that are on the roof or have fallen to the ground.
