Roofing Installation PROFESSIONAL RESIDENTIAL HOUSE ROOFING
What is roofing installation
Roofing installation, along with the siding, is used to protect the exterior of the house. The roof needs to be able to withstand the elements, ensure house durability and provide comfortable living. Structurally the roof consists of 3 elements:
This is the structure that provides the shape and structural rigidity of the roof. Typically consists of timber beams and rafters. The main role is passing the weight of the roof onto the walls.
Material is what most understand by “roofing installation”. This is the protective material covering the roof in order to withstand temperature, winds and precipitation.
An overlooked aspect of the roofing installation is a proper insulation that can cut the electricity bills, and the proper ventilation that prevents humidity, roof degradation and mold.
In order to build a good house roofing installation, many aspects need to be factored in:
Important aspects like temperatures, humidity, precipitations and wind speed need to be accounted for. A hot sunny climate may require a different roofing compared to the cold snowy climate or a windy and wet climate. Selecting the appropriate roofing may prolong the service life of the roofing, as well as the durability of the house.
Depending on the solution, the roof may place a significant weight on the structure. E.g. clay tiles are much heavier compared to rolled roofing. Adding solar panels to the existing roof may also add weight. Moreover, apart from the weight of the roof, you need to account for environmental load: snow, rain, wind.
Different roofing may require different maintenance. It is important to service the roof in a timely manner: making sure the water doesn’t sip through; ensuring good ventilation & insulation; replacing damaged tiles, shingles & sheets; replacing damaged beams & rafters. Proper maintenance can significantly prolong the service life.

When to replace the roofing
Resale value and curb appeal is a huge incentive to address the roofing installation and replacement. Apart from the aesthetics – good indicators are the constant leaks, mold, humidity issues, poor ventilation and thermal isolation. Moreover – a timely roofing replacement or repair can prevent serious damage to the house walls and the interior, saving plenty costs down the road. Normally a proper roofing can last many years, but you need to be aware of the current state of the roofing. For instance, the rolled roofing requires a more frequent maintenance. When it comes to shingles and clay tiles – strong winds can affect the roof integrity. Last, but not least – always monitor the state of the roof framing, since damaged beans and rafters may urgently need your attention.
