Unveiling the Transformation: A Step-by-Step Guide to Replacing Your Asphalt Shingle Roof with Charlotte Ace Roofing

Embarking on the journey to replace your asphalt shingle roof can be both exciting and essential for the long-term integrity of your home. At Charlotte Ace Roofing, we specialize in turning this process into a seamless experience. Join us as we unveil the step-by-step guide to replacing your asphalt shingle roof, incorporating crucial elements such as roof felt paper, ice and water in eaves and valleys, metal flashing, and starter strips.

Step 1: Assessment and Preparation

Before any roofing project begins, Charlotte Ace Roofing conducts a thorough assessment of your existing roof. We inspect the condition of the shingles, identify any structural issues, and plan the replacement process accordingly. Once the assessment is complete, we prepare the site, ensuring a clean and organized workspace.

Step 2: Removal of Old Shingles

The first tangible step involves removing the old shingles. Charlotte Ace Roofing's skilled team carefully and efficiently removes the existing shingles, exposing the underlying structure for inspection. This step is crucial for identifying any potential issues that may have been concealed by the old roofing material.

Step 3: Inspection and Repairs

With the old shingles removed, Charlotte Ace Roofing conducts a detailed inspection of the roof deck. Any damaged or deteriorated sections are repaired to ensure a solid foundation for the new roofing system. This attention to detail is essential for the longevity and performance of your new asphalt shingle roof.

Step 4: Installation of Roof Felt Paper

The next step involves laying down roof felt paper, a critical element for protecting the roof deck from moisture. This water-resistant barrier acts as an additional layer of defense against the elements, enhancing the durability and lifespan of your new roof.

Step 5: Ice and Water Shield in Eaves and Valleys

To fortify vulnerable areas prone to water infiltration, Charlotte Ace Roofing installs ice and water shield in eaves and valleys. This self-adhering membrane provides an extra layer of protection, preventing water penetration in areas susceptible to ice dams and heavy rainfall.

Step 6: Metal Flashing Installation

Metal flashing is strategically placed around roof penetrations, such as chimneys, vents, and skylights, to create a watertight seal. Charlotte Ace Roofing ensures precision in flashing installation, preventing potential leaks and securing the integrity of your new asphalt shingle roof.

Step 7: Starter Strip Application

The foundation of a well-installed asphalt shingle roof begins with the starter strip. Charlotte Ace Roofing applies starter strips along the eaves, providing a secure base for the first row of shingles. This not only enhances the overall stability of the roof but also contributes to a clean and professional finish.

Step 8: Asphalt Shingle Installation

The final and transformative step involves the installation of asphalt shingles. Charlotte Ace Roofing utilizes industry-leading materials and precise installation techniques to ensure a visually appealing and resilient roof. The shingles are expertly laid in accordance with industry standards, creating a protective barrier that enhances the aesthetic and functionality of your home.

Step 9: Quality Assurance and Cleanup

Charlotte Ace Roofing takes pride in quality assurance. Our team conducts a thorough inspection to ensure the newly installed roof meets our rigorous standards. Once satisfied, we proceed with a meticulous cleanup, leaving your property as pristine as it was before the roofing project began.
