Roofing Installation begins immediately after all the necessary materials have been selected for this. It is necessary to determine in advance the type of coating in order to calculate how many supplies will be needed and determine the durability of the roof. Thanks to preliminary preparation, you can accurately calculate the cost of materials and work.
The most difficult is the installation of the roof tiles, as it requires a more durable system. This is due to the large weight of the tile, for production of which the stove tile is used. Metal and slate are much easier, that is why the choice of roofing material plays an important role.
Once all materials have been purchased, contractors can begin installation of a curb plate around the perimeter of the upper edge of the walls. It is a thick bar that serves as a support and foundation for the rafter system. In order for the roof to be solid and sustainable, all fastenings must be reliable. When laying the curb plate it is worth using a level to prevent distortions.
It is important before the installation of the bar to mark and to drill the holes in accordance with the step of the anchor bolts, after which it is installed on the curb plate with a sledgehammer.
Installation of the roof is carried out in several stages:
- installation of curb plate;
- installation of a rafter system from thick boards or bars;
- roof sheeting.
There are cases when the replacement of roofing is required. Replacement is necessary if small cracks were found on the roof, or it lost its aesthetic look, has traces of moisture on the walls of the attic or attic room, serious damage to the rafter system, or the insulation layer and the hole in the roof covering were found.
If the above problems were found, then the roofing should be replaced as soon as possible. Initially, you need to dismantle the old roof, it can be partial or complete. If slate was used for the roof, then for its removal it is recommended to use a hammer and crowbar. When planning the use of slate for the secondary coating, it is necessary to remove it very carefully. If it is not reused, then you can remove it quickly and without worrying about its integrity.
