REROOFING, Part 1: Removal of your old roof

J-Conn Roofing & Repair Service can evaluate whether your roof requires repair or reroofing. Reroofing will likely be necessary if you observe any of the following:

  • Shingles that are broken or curled or have shifted from their original installation positions
  • Large-scale loss of the outer layer of granules on the shingles
  • Exposed tar paper or plywood
  • Extensive damage from severe weather events
  • Evidence of rotten wood

First, our roofing professionals will prepare for disposal of old shingles and roofing paper by positioning a receptacle for removed materials. The first step of reroofing is the removal of your existing surface materials. Using special roofing tools, J-Conn removes successive rows of old shingles and tar paper. We also remove old nails that formerly held the tar paper in place, allowing for a cleaner installation of the new roofing materials.

After the underlying decking/plywood is exposed, we inspect for rotten wood. We then determine what needs to be replaced.

If your house has multiple layers of roofing material from past maintenance, extra time or labor may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Complete removal of old roof layers is recommended; covering up old layers will add to cost and weight load and may violate warranty conditions and municipal building codes.

Our skilled roofers can perform your reroofing process at any time of year, scheduling the work around good periods of stable weather and temperatures. Mild winter and early spring days, before Austin begins to be affected by summer weather patterns, may be an ideal time to contact J-Conn to accomplish your reroofing project.
