When you are about to install or replace your PVC roofing system, there are a couple of things that you can do to make it go easier on you and your contractor. Here are some helpful tips for a professional PVC roofing installation service.
Make sure you measure twice.
Measure both the roof and the door before the roof is installed. If you are installing a roof for a storm door or storm windows, or you are replacing one, make sure the roof is equal to or greater than the opening. If you are replacing the roof and want to keep the same door style that you already have, then measure the opening and make sure the roof is at least one inch bigger than it. Never assume anything when it comes to roof installations.
Have your roof inspected.
Before your roof is installed, you must have it inspected by a professional and certified roofing inspector. Inspections will help you determine if your roof is in good condition and if it can still be used. If the roof has been damaged by a severe storm, then it should be replaced. If the roof is only slightly damaged, then it may still be usable, however, you should have it inspected to be sure.
Have the installer verify.
Make sure that your contractor verifies the materials that they are using for the roof installation. PVC is a very durable material, however, it is not made to withstand a lifetime of harsh weather conditions. Before the installation, verify that the contractor is using the proper flashing and a compatible underlayment. It is all too common for contractors to incorrectly install the underlayment and not use the flashing that is needed with them.
