We offer a wide range of roof materials to suit various architectural styles and customer preferences. From traditional asphalt shingles to modern metal roofing, we have options that cater to different budgets and design aesthetics.

Prior to the installation, our team carefully inspects the roof’s structure, identifying any underlying issues that need to be addressed. We ensure that the surface is clean, smooth, and free of debris, providing a solid foundation for the installation process.

Step-by-Step Roofing Installation

Installing a new roof requires a systematic approach to ensure a sturdy, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing result. At McKinnis Roofing & Sheet Metal, our skilled professionals follow a comprehensive step-by-step process for installing any type of new roof, regardless of the material being used.

Assessment and Planning

Our experienced roofing team begins by assessing the existing roof or the roof structure of a new construction project. This evaluation helps us understand the roof’s dimensions, condition, and specific requirements. We take precise measurements and discuss your preferences and any customization or special requests you may have.

Roof Preparation

Before installing the new roof, it’s essential to prepare the surface. This includes removing any existing roofing materials, inspecting the roof deck for damage or deterioration, and addressing any underlying issues. We ensure that the roof deck is clean, smooth, and structurally sound.

Underlayment Installation

The next step involves installing a roofing underlayment. This layer acts as a moisture barrier, providing an extra layer of protection against water infiltration. The underlayment also helps to improve the roof’s overall durability and energy efficiency.

Installation of Roofing Material

Depending on the selected roofing material, such as asphalt shingles, metal roofing, or other options, our team installs the chosen material following the manufacturer’s guidelines and industry best practices. We start from the bottom edge of the roof and work our way up, ensuring each row is properly aligned and secured.

Flashing and Edge Installation

To protect vulnerable areas and prevent water penetration, we install flashing around roof penetrations (such as chimneys or vents) and at the intersection points of different roof planes. Additionally, we install a drip edge along the edges of the roof to redirect water away from the structure and prevent damage.

Ridge Cap Installation

Finally, we install ridge caps along the ridges or peaks of the roof. These specialized shingles or ridge vent systems provide a finished look while offering an extra layer of protection against water infiltration and weather elements.

Throughout the installation process, our skilled professionals use advanced techniques, precision measurements, and industry-approved tools to ensure a high-quality result. We pay attention to details such as proper ventilation, alignment, and flashing to enhance the roof’s performance and longevity.

The Importance of Professional Roof Installation

At McKinnis Roofing & Sheet Metal, we understand the significance of hiring skilled and knowledgeable professionals for the job. Our team consists of highly trained experts who have in-depth experience in the field. They are well-versed in the latest industry trends, techniques, and safety protocols.

Local Building Codes and Regulations

Professional roofers are familiar with the specific building codes and regulations in your area. They ensure that your roof installation complies with all the necessary guidelines, preventing any potential issues or complications.

Roofing installation involves working at heights, which can be dangerous without proper safety precautions. Professional roofers have the necessary training and equipment to ensure a safe working environment, minimizing the risk of accidents or injuries.
