If you are thinking about remodeling your home, you may be wondering whether you should start with the roofing or the siding. Many people are unsure which of these two installations should be completed first. The truth is that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to installation. You must consider a few factors in order to have a clear picture of the installation. Royal Roofing & Siding Bronx can guide and help you through this process.

Roof Demolition

Taking a roof off is a difficult task. The siding could be damaged at several points during the process. If your siding has already been replaced, the contractor must exercise extreme caution in order to avoid damaging it. This also applies to gutters and downspouts. Starting with the roof makes more sense in this case. When the project is finished, the siding and gutters will be in perfect condition.

Installing the Roof and Siding

Some roofing components, such as flashing, are easier to install when the siding is removed. Some siding parts, on the other hand, will need to be nailed down beneath the roof shingles. In this regard, it appears to be more practical to install the siding first. Otherwise, the siding installer will have to be extra cautious when installing the new roof.

If you want to change the style and color scheme of your exterior, or if both your siding and roof need to be replaced, consider doing both at the same time. Replacing both the siding and the roof at the same time will allow you to keep your home’s aesthetics.

Making a decision on whether to begin with a roof or siding installation can go either way. In some cases, it makes sense to start with the roof and then work your way down to the siding. In some cases, the inverse is more logical. Do not be concerned if you do not know where to begin. Your roofing contractor will assess the situation and advise you on the best course of action.
