Tear-Off Roofing Jobs

Tear-Off Roofing Jobs can create a real mess. A Ranch Home with 2 layers of shingles can have up to 10,000 pounds of shingles on the roof. If a Contractor doesn't take precautions shingles carelessly shoved off the roof can damage siding, windows, wood decks, air conditioners, and landscaping.

Jarvis Builders takes special precautions to eliminate these problems. First the area below the roof is tarped off to catch all the shingles, nails, and debris. Then we lean up OSB Sheeting to keep shingles from hitting the siding, windows. We also cover landscaping & bushes. Finally, once the Tear-Off Process is done and the roof deck is swept clean the shingles and debris are cleaned up off the tarps and disposed of into a roll-off dumpster. The gutters are cleaned.

With a Jarvis Builders Roofing Job "Extra Precautions" to protect your home and landscaping ensure your Complete Satisfaction with the Whole Job.
