You’ve chosen the GC (general contractor) for your upcoming build. What part does the GC play in terms of the installation of the brand-new roof system?

A general contractor is a professional who oversees construction projects and is responsible for managing all aspects of the project, including hiring subcontractors, scheduling work, and ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget. They are typically licensed and have extensive knowledge and experience in the construction industry.

A commercial roofer is a specialized contractor who installs and repairs roofs on commercial buildings. They work with a variety of roofing materials and have expertise in the unique challenges associated with commercial roofing projects, such as large roof areas and complex drainage systems.

While a general contractor may have knowledge and experience in roofing, it is not their primary area of expertise. They will often hire a commercial roofer as a subcontractor for a construction project that involves roofing work, or may work in conjunction with a roofer to ensure that the roofing aspect of the project is completed properly.

The process to install a new construction roof may vary depending on the type of roofing material and the specific requirements of the project, but the following is a general overview of the process:

  • Preparation: The first step is to prepare the roof deck for installation. This may involve removing the existing roofing materials, repairing any damage, and ensuring that the deck is clean and free of debris.
  • Installation of underlayment: Next, an underlayment is installed over the roof deck to provide a waterproof barrier and protect the roof from moisture. The type of underlayment used may vary depending on the roofing material being installed.
  • Installation of flashing: Flashing is installed around any roof penetrations, such as vents or chimneys, to prevent water from seeping into the roof.
  • Installation of roofing material: The roofing material is then installed on top of the underlayment and flashing. This may involve nailing, screwing, or adhering the material to the roof deck.
  • Finishing touches: Once the roofing material is installed, any necessary finishing touches are completed. This may include installing ridge caps, sealing edges and seams, and ensuring that the roof is properly ventilated.
  • Inspection: A final inspection is conducted to ensure that the roof has been installed properly and meets all applicable building codes and regulations.
