Our Process

The Roofing Process

Every roofing project requires different tools, materials and techniques, and we understand exactly what your building needs. We’ve completed thousands of projects using only the highest-quality materials and innovative techniques because we know that building or repairing a sturdy roof involves much more than nailing shingles in place. Performance Roofing uses a unique step-by-step process that includes a thorough inspection and an attention to detail that no other Florida roofing company can provide. Our roofing process is as follows:

1Creation of the Support Deck

The first step in the roofing process is the creation of a sturdy and solid support deck. Without the right support deck, the roofing structure can fall apart during and after construction, and the work surface can be too difficult to work with. The professionals at Performance Roofing have years of experience building structurally-sound support decks to support the roof covering. After that, we can conduct a thorough inspection of the substrate surface to ensure that there are no signs of deterioration, rotting or loose nails anywhere around the roof. If we find any problems, we can then create a repair plan immediately.

2Application of Felt Underlayment

The felt underlayment is important for creating the flat, even-surface roof. If we are working on an existing roof, we will make sure that the felt underlayment is intact. If it is not, we can go ahead and repair or replace this critical layer to ensure the shingles have a solid base to rest upon.

3Metal Work

The third part of the roofing process involves extensive metal work. The team at Performance Roofing has perfected the technique of installing metal drip edge around the perimeter of the roof and ensuring that each corner is properly mitered. This is very important for creating a sturdy and even roof, and we use the best methods in the industry to ensure that everything is lined properly. This reduces the risk o f leaks, cracks and dents caused by environmental effects and any pressure on the roof.

4Application of Shingles

Performance Roofing is known for its attention to detail and high-quality workmanship. Much of this is attributed to how we apply the shingles on the roof. We use several techniques to ensure that just the right number of shingles is used to create the roof, and that the nails are in the ideal position. This can only be accomplished by professionals in the industry, and we pride ourselves on using a winning formula to create the strongest, most attractive roof.

5Cleanup and Inspection

The final part of the roofing process involves the last inspection and cleanup. The team at Performance Roofing takes the time to make sure that the roof meets or high standards, and we will clean up the construction site after the work is complete. The final inspection ensures that we have not missed any critical details, and that we can stand behind our final product and our commitment to you.
