The day has finally arrived…the day of your new roof installation. You have selected your roofing material, chosen a color, and reviewed the scope of work to be performed. What can you do to prepare and what should you know about the roof installation process?

The process of installing a new roof creates a construction site at your home. There are several steps that should be taken to ensure that you, your family and your hope are prepared for the new installation.

Please keep in mind that everything used to perform the work on your roof needs to be as close to the house as possible, which requires access to the yard and driveway. All vehicles should be removed from the driveway and parked away from the structure. Also, anything around the perimeter of the property that would limit roof access should be removed.

All children and pets should be kept indoors in a safe place or off the job site.

Materials will be coming off the roof and may be present in the lawn prior to clean up. We will ensure that ALL debris will be removed when the roof is complete. In preparation, you may wish to cover all valuables in the attic and garage, as dust and debris could enter those spaces. Remember to cut off power to all roof attic fans.

Noise from nail guns, nails, hammers, etc. are used throughout the process. You should expect associated noise.

Satellite Dishes that are mounted on your roof may need to be moved to allow proper installation.

Your job will receive a final inspection from our field superintendent. He will ensure that any remaining debris or materials have been removed from the property and that the roof installation is complete.

Should you have any questions throughout the job process, feel free to contact our main office at 757-399-3066 for assistance.

TPO, or Thermoplastic Polyolefin, is a synthetic rubber compound that is one of the most popular roofing solutions for commercial buildings today.

There are many notable advantages to installing a TPO system on a commercial building. For one, TPO can be fused to create a highly reliable, long-lasting seam. In addition to its strength, it is a heat-reflective, energy efficient material that was created to withstand the effects of ozone, chemical, and ultraviolet exposure. The materials’ ability to endure these types of effects is what makes it such a cost effective option.

TPO comes in several different thicknesses and can be mechanically fastened, fully-adhered, or ballasted, depending on the existing structure. It is most commonly applied in a white color to maximize its efficiency. By reflecting heat and light, TPO guards the roof from absorbing and transmitting outside temperatures to the interior of the building.

Having a qualified roofer is essential when installing TPO. The estimator must assess the current condition of the roof and recommend the best system to install. Even the preparation to the surface of the existing roof is essential for proper installation.

Andrews Roofing has highly qualified, knowledgeable estimators and installation crews with several years of experience with TPO systems. If you are interested in inquiring about a new TPO roof for your commercial building, feel free to contact our office.
