The process of installing an asphalt shingle roof is actually quite complex. There are many steps. And we won’t skip a single one if you choose Gold Seal Roofing, LLC to install your asphalt shingle roof. We also repair asphalt roofs, when possible.

But, back to the installation process. Here are the steps we follow to ensure a top-quality residential roofing job and a stress-free roofing experience.

  • The entire site perimeter will be inspected for items that may get damaged in the roofing process — these will be moved away from the work area
  • Tarps will be spread around the perimeter of the home and over the shrub beds to protect any plants and to collect falling debris
  • A dump trailer will be placed in a convenient spot to receive demolition and waste material

  • Workers will wear appropriate protective clothing and shoes
  • Worker’s will fasten cleats at the eaves, put on safety harnesses, and fasten the harness to the cleats with approved lanyards

  • For general roofs, a woven synthetic underlayment will be used
  • For upgrade roofs, a self-adhering modified bitumen membrane will be installed at all eaves, valleys, penetrations, and other leak-prone areas
  • The woven synthetic underlayment will then be used in other areas, overlapping each horizontal run by 3 inches and each vertical seam by 18 inches — the underlayment will be fastened with plastic cap nails every 1 foot and within 1 inch of each edge
  • 10506-orange-grove-gaf-charcoalFor a further upgrade, a heavier woven synthetic underlayment can be specified and used
