How We Keep Our Roof Replacement

Keeping the work area free of debris during roofing replacement is not often discussed, but as professional roofers, we believe it's a topic worth mentioning. Ill-prepared roofers often neglect the surrounding work areas and end up with anything from loose nails to damaged landscaping that result in untimely landscaping expenses.

How We Keep Our Roof Replacement Projects Debris Free

At West Side Roofing, however, we are aware of and are prepared for such contingencies. Here's how.

Issues With Roofing Teardown

The real work begins with a complete teardown. The old roofing – nails and all – is pushed off the roof deck using special shovels, and then pushed off the roof's edge straight onto the back of a dump truck, space permitting. In other areas, debris is pushed straight to the ground. While canvas, tarpaulin, or some other protective sheet typically protects the work area, it's often insufficient to protect the landscaping. Sometimes even uncovered windows would get damaged.

Professional Roofing Debris Disposal

Preventing that kind of damage during roofing installation is a challenge. Some would suggest that the solution is to catch the debris before it hits the ground using a catch-all safety net, but it presents three problems: one, it wouldn't catch smaller items like roofing nails. Two, moving debris from the net to the dump truck would be difficult and time-consuming. And three, not every home would have a tree or a post that these nets can be tied to.

Our solution is the Equipter RB4000 Roofers Buggy, or simply, The Equipter. It is a specially-designed buggy equipped with a containment box similar to dump trucks. The attached hydraulic arm allows the operator to raised the box as close to the roof's edge as needed, catching all the debris from the source. The Equipter is small enough to be maneuvered in spaces where dump trucks can't get into, which means no matter how tight the space is, your flowerbeds, shrubbery, and landscaping is unharmed.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Leaking Chimney and Other Chimney Issues

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
