We Do It

How

The day or so before we begin, a few things to help the process go smoothly.

• Mow Your Yard. This will help our quality control managers with their lawn magnets to catch as many nails, staples, and other metallic debris after the work is completed.

• Remove Vehicles From the Garage And Driveway. The day before your job is scheduled to begin, we will drop off all the materials for your job usually in the driveway to give our crews easy access to load the materials onto the roof.

• Remove Or Cover Exterior Accessories. Protect your outdoor items from falling debris such as landscape lighting, small potted plants, etc.


• Remove Fragile Items Hanging On Your Walls. The vibrations from our crew on the roof can cause items to rattle and fall from your walls.



• Make Arrangements For Your Pets. The process is very loud and could cause your pets to get frightened. Make sure they are safely secure or boarded.

Our Setup

Roof materials are typically delivered the day before your job is scheduled to begin, so that when the crew arrives, they can get immediately get to work.


The day of your build, we protect your home exterior, landscape, and pool:

• Mesh Tarps And Tents. We aim to protect your landscaping, garage doors, AC units, and other sensitive areas of your home’s exterior to mitigate against any collateral damage from falling debris.

• Pool Tarp. If you have a pool, we completely tarp to ensure no nails or staples fall in, which could lead to serious and expensive contamination issues.

• Shaded Tent. Particularly during the hotter months, our crews will have a shaded tent somewhere nearby to have a cool spot to drink, eat, and take a quick break from the brutal Central Texas heat.

What To Expect

The tear-off stage is the messiest and loudest part of the process. But this is because we are stripping your roof down to the bare plywood decking.

Even with tarps laid out to catch debris, your yard is guaranteed to look a mess.
If you’re inside, it is going to be loud.

What We Do

During this stage, we remove:

Gutters – Removing the gutters system ensures that we can properly install your new roofing system according to industry and manufacturer standards.

Solar Panels – If you have solar panels, our team can safely remove and store your solar panels before installation, and then reinstall them according to their original orientation.

Additional Roof Components – Vents, attic fans, flashings, or any other component that will prevent proper installation will be safely removed and stored.

Existing Roofing System – Once all components have been removed, the next thing is to remove the existing roofing system.

Felt underlayment – Beneath your roofing system will be felt underlayment. Depending on prior roofing installations, there may be multiple layers of felt. We remove all layers down to the bare plywood decking.

Chances are we will find rotten plywood decking which is why we always plan to replace up to the three plywood sheets as a courtesy to you!

Owens Corning® WeatherLock® Mat Ice & Water Barrier – One of the most durable waterproof barriers on the market. We install at the most vulnerable parts of your roof to ensure maximum water-tightness, such as valleys and around flashings.

Owens Corning® ProArmor® Synthetic Roof Underlayment – As opposed to standard felt underlayment, our synthetic sheets are designed to provide greater moisture protection and are far more resistant to tearing.

Custom Fabricated Flashings And Drip Edge – Metal flashing around components and the drip edge are installed with the underlayment according to all manufacturer standards to ensure maximum protection against wind-driven rains.

Owens Corning® Starter Strip Plus Shingle (for shingle roofing systems) – Before we begin laying down the shingles, this starter strip is securely adhered along the edge of the roof with the bonded strength to withstand up to 110 mph winds.

New Roof System Installation – Once we have ensured that the base of your roofing system is fully secured, we can finally fully install your new roof!

Ridge Caps And Vents – The final step! For shingle roofing systems we cap your roof with your choice of Owens Corning® Hip & Ridge shingles. For metal systems, the roof is capped off with tailored hip and ridge flashings.

Solar Panel Resetting (if necessary) – If your roof required the detaching of any solar panels, we wait until the roof is 100% complete before re-installing.

What’s Left To Do

Although the new roof installation may be complete, there is still more to do before we call the job done.

Clean Up – Once off the roof, we take great care to pick up tarp-caught debris, remove all the additional tarps and nets, as well as to pick up as much smaller, yet visible, debris.

Leftover Materials And Pick-Up – Our crews will store any leftover materials, usually up the driveway. Within a day or so, one of our quality control managers, or your Ark roofing consultant, will be by to pick it all up.

Quality Control Inspection And Punchlist – Within a few days of the installation one of our quality control managers will return to your property to conduct a full post-job inspection to ensure that all components were installed correctly, determine if there are any outstanding issues, and to magnet sweep your yard again to catch any nails or staples that were missed or hidden during the initial clean-up. Our QC team will compile a punchlist for everything they find that needs to be remedied before we finalize out your project.

Final QC Inspection And Walkthrough – Once the punchlist items have been completed, we invite you to walk around your property with us for a final inspection.

What To Expect

Final Insurance Supplements And Depreciation – If your roof was replaced through a homeowner’s insurance claim, our estimations team will ensure that any supplements and depreciation payouts are closed.

Final Invoice – For any outstanding balances, our invoicing specialists will send you a convenient ACH link for final payments.

Warranty Registration – Next, we will set up all of your manufacturer warranties so that your new roof is set with long-term protection.

Certificate of Completion – At last, once the final invoice has been paid and your warranties have been registered, all that is left is to provide you with your official Ark Certificate of Completion.
