Follow these basic steps when replacing the roof on your home:

  1. Remove all the old roofing material and underlayment so the decking can be inspected for rot or other damage.
  2. Repair or replace any rotten or damaged sections of decking on the roof.
  3. Install new underlayment as recommended by the roofing manufacturer so it will meet the roof warranty guidelines.
  4. Install the new roofing, paying particular attention to valleys and flashing to prevent costly leaks.
