  • Shingles Delivered
    • Our supplier Roofline will deliver shingles and place them on your roof
    • Roofline’s trucks carry a heavy load so we will need written permission for them to drive on your driveway.If you do not want them to park in your driveway you can pay a fee based on the square footage of your roof.
    • Minor cracking may occur in your sheet rock due to the weight of the shingles, especially with older homes.

What do I Need to do to Prepare for my Roof Replacement?

Note: You do not have to be present during the roofing process

  1. Clear the areas under your eaves- such as flower pots, roof chimes, outdoor furniture etc. 5-6 feet from your eave and the space directly under the eave. We will lay tarps down along the eaves that will have a small impact on the landscaping. We do our best to protect your space but you will be able to tell we were there.
  2. Access to plug-ins outside- If you do not have external plugins at your home and will not be present during the roofing process please leave a garage open or run an extension cord out from your home or garage.
  3. Payment at final inspection- We accept check and cash but no credit cards. If you cannot pay at the time of final inspection your payment is due within two weeks of roofing completion(roofing completion, not clean-up). Please review your contract for additional information about billing.
  4. Flexibility in scheduling- due to weather and job fluctuations we ask for your patience and flexibility in scheduling.
