Myrtle Beach SC Roof Replacement: The Lenox Process
The process of your new roof installation starts with the delivery of roofing material. A Lenox Roofing project manager will thoroughly examine your new roof material, and make sure that you receive everything correctly before your roofing work begins. Here are a few steps we follow to ensure proper installation for long-lasting protection of your new residential roofing system.
1. Tear off Existing Roofing Material
This is the first and a very important step for any Myrtle Beach SC roof replacement. Our roofers will safely remove your old existing roof with minimal disruption to your schedule. This step usually takes between a few hours and even a full day, depending on the size, complexity, and pitch of your roof, and as well as the number of existing shingle layers and old roof felt. In serving Myrtle Beach, SC, re-roofing or roof-over is not an accepted practice for our customers, and for a good reason.
Once we have torn off your roofing felt, our expert crews will do a roof inspection of your roof decking for any rotten wood, which will be replaced with CDX or OSB depending on the existing material your roof is built with.
2. Installation of Drip Edge and Flashing
To prevent any rot in the future, eave flashing or commonly called drip edge is installed for optimum protection against having to repair water damage on any Lenox Roofing residential roofing project.
3. Installation of New Felt
A well-established roofing contractor serving Myrtle Beach like Lenox Roofing only uses the most advanced and durable roof products to deliver their clients far superior and long-lasting residential roofing systems to those relying on outdated materials. Synthetic felt is far stronger, tougher, water-resistant, and tear-resistant than ordinary materials.
4. Starter shingles
In a flawlessly done Myrtle Beach SC roof replacement, a starter shingle plays a vital role. It comes with an adhesive strip to make your home’s eave more water-resistant and secure during rains and strong winds assuming you against future repair. That’s why we don’t recommend installing a three-tab shingle in place of a starter as it has no adhesive for protection against water damage.
After the starter shingles are installed, we install a water and ice shield. These should be installed at all penetration points like around chimneys, roof valleys, and around every penetration such as wind turbines and roofing plumbing pipe jacks.
5. Roofing Shingles
Now comes the most visible part of your roof – the new roofing shingles. The best way to install high-quality residential roofing shingles for long-lasting results is to install them in a course instead of racking them up. For most residential roofing shingles, you’ll need six nails for every shingle.
If you’re looking for a new roof, our roofing experts will help you choose the best roofing material to suit your needs, budget, and style preferences. We specialize in installing almost all types of roofing materials such as asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and modified bitumen, for a flat roof among others.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Is My Home Cleaned Up After My Roof Installation?
Once we have finished installing your new roof, our professionals will clean up the leftover materials, such as broken shingles, loose nails, sharp objects, and other debris.

What Does My Roof Warranty Cover?
It is vital to properly understand all the details of your roofing warranty. First, determine who will be responsible for registering your warranty. Roofing materials from trusted manufacturers like Owens Corning are the best choice for your roof if you’re looking for the best warranties. Your roofing company will register your roof warranty.

Alternatively, you can access all the information related to your shingle warranty online.
What type of ventilation do I need?
This is an important question that you should ask your roofing contractor. For instance, a ridge vent is an excellent product for long-term and efficient attic ventilation. Today’s ridge vents come with many features that will keep wind-driven rain issues at bay. However, if your home can’t have enough ridge vents to achieve optimum ventilation in your attic, you can go for other options like power attic vents and wind turbines.
