Scope of Project
New Roof Plus was contacted by the homeowner to get a second opinion on their roof replacement. The home is located in The Meadows in Castle Rock, Colorado. This is a master-planned community located west of Highway 285.
The homeowner first met with a contractor who discovered the hail damage. The contractor’s recommendations did not agree with the homeowner’s research. So the homeowner contacted another contractor, New Roof Plus.
Shingles were in high demand and hard to procure for many contractors. New Roof Plus was able to secure a highly-rated Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingle that the homeowner approved.
Funding had been secured with approval from the insurance company. New Roof Plus was able to work with the homeowner to get them a much better shingle than others were able to provide.
The project came together quickly and was completed not long after.
Permits and Licensing
All permits and licensing were secured by the contractor. City of Castle Rock inspection services approved the roof installation.
“Great family to work with! Our connections and relationships with suppliers allowed us to source a high-end shingle to replace the old builder-grade shingles originally installed on the roof. This Project came together quickly and the client loves the new upgraded look of their home.”

3-Phase Roof Installation Process
PHASE 1: EXISTING ROOF/TEAR-OFF
- Remove and dispose of existing shingles. This is by far the messiest part of the project and the loudest.
- Once the shingles are removed, any existing nails left behind will be hammered down into the decking.
- If any bad or rotten decking is discovered it will be replaced
- Once the roof surface is clean and clear, we can move to Phase 2
- Installation of the new synthetic underlayment, ice, and water shield in the valleys.
- Install new drip edge around the eaves (2″x 4″) and along the rake edges (2′ x 2″)
- Install new pipe jack and flashing
- Install new roof vents and shingles
- Install a starter strip along the eaves and the rakes for maximum wind protection
- The final step in this phase is the painting of flashing, pipe jacks, etc. along with sealing any exposed nail heads.
- Install shingles
Phase 3: CLEANUP
- The cleanup is the final step.
- Includes all remaining debris thrown in a dump trailer
- blowers are used to clean any sidewalks, walkways, etc.
