Metal Roofing Supplies Tips to Consider
Whether you are a seasoned roofer or recently started in the industry, roof shingling is an easy job to complete. We learned in school and our employers remind us of how important it is to carefully do the job right the first time. If you haven’t experienced an injury or a sore thumb during a job, that day will eventually come. A commercial and residential job will always need safety which is the first priority from the beginning to the end while working on a roof. Although we specialize in metal roofing supplies, we know a thing or two about the right way to complete a shingling project without wasting money, time and putting your wellbeing in danger.

LAYERING SHINGLES OVER SHINGLES
Do you know the most popular rule for installing shingles? It has been said that layering new shingles over existing shingles is completely fine because the material has a lifespan of over 20 years. The truth is it can potentially develop problems that are not easily visible because the shingles are stacked on top of each other. As a company with 30 years of experience, we strongly recommend that you strip the roof first to find potential problems and use no more than 3 layers of shingles.
THE STRIPPING TOOL YOU NEED
It is typical to see a roofer with a crowbar in order to remove shingles from a roof. To give your customer a positive experience with this investment, use a Roofer’s Spade which is a tool that is specifically designed to make your job easier. Remember, a crowbar can accidentally slip out of your hand and fall on a customer, a car or their neighbor’s property. When you least expect it the crowbar can hit you and cause serious injury.
The Importance of Renting a Dumpster
Debris is a big part of working in the roofing industry. It not only comes from the roof but you will also notice that it peels off of the nails that you use to fix a roof. A better way than to throw shingles and old nails in the back of your truck is to rely on a local equipment rental company for a dumpster to rent. Our metal roofing supplies materials meet industry standards to ensure your customers get the best quality.
