Roofing Installation Process 1

Crew Arrives, Team Leaders Inspect Site | 7:30 am

When the crew arrives they immediately start preparing the site for the job, using tarps and wooden barriers to protect your home AND yard from debris. Meanwhile, the team leaders inspect the site to make sure everything is covered and find the best spots to place ladders. Materials show up at the same time as the crew via our delivery truck and are placed in a safe location without damaging your lawn.
