How a Roofing Company Installs Shingles
A roofing company can install a high-quality roofing system that protects your home from the elements and maintains insulation and airflow in your home. This video will show how a roofing company installs an asphalt roof, step by step.
The drip edge is installed on the edges of the roof. The drip edge helps to prevent pooling on the roof and leaks at the edges of your roof, where it’s most vulnerable. It’s installed before felt so water doesn’t get behind it.
Felt & Starter Strip
Felt is installed from the bottom of the roof to the top. It’s rolled out by one man and plastic caps are punched in eight to 16 inches. A starter strip is then installed at the edges of the roof. This helps against wind-driven rains.
Shingles & Ridge
Shingles are installed along the bottom of the roof. They are meticulously measured and installed to help with total overlap and roof coverage. Once they are placed down, they are expertly nailed in. The ridge is then installed at the very top and your roof is ready to go.
