If you own a house, garage, shed, or commercial building, it is likely that your roof will need to be replaced at some point in time.

A little-known fact about roofing companies is that they are very selective about the roofs they will demolish. For example, an old and deteriorating flat roof will need to be fully demolished before a new one can be installed. Most roofing companies are unable to handle a demolition project such as this, and the experts such as A+ Enterprises are called in to assist.

The first part of roof demolition is establishing where the damage is, and the best way to disassemble the roof. One advantage to hiring a demolition company to demolish your old roof is they have heavy equipment to assist in getting the job done quicker and more efficient compared to a dedicated roofing company.

Once you begin demolishing the roof structure, it is rinse and repeat! One thing to keep in mind during this process is to be on the lookout for any existing damage to the roof trusses. They are the backbone to your roof, and it is important to keep them in as good of shape as possible. In this scenario, the trusses were so old that they did not have cross bracing. This means they were able to flex & bend very easily so extra precautions had to be made.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when doing a roof demolition project is underestimating the weight of old roofing. Typically, roofing in a building such as the one in this example should weigh roughly 13-20 tons depending on construction. When we removed all the old roofing it weighed over 40 tons! Because of the variables in construction of old roofing, it is important to always plan for the worst when budgeting for a project such as this.

    review rating 5  EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.

    review rating 5  These guys are awesome! They came here when promised, were really nice and friendly, and they did what they were supposed to do in a timely fashion. The price quoted was changed because I had more “stuff” to get rid of. However, they quoted the difference before getting the rest of the things out and we agreed. I will certainly call them next time. Thanks, A+!
