Watching A Roof Installation From Above

 A few weeks ago we had a roof replacement so we could get to a settlement at

650 Military Ave. in Pikesville

 

The video below shows the process before during and after installation. 

You can see the condition of the roof before.

You can watch the removal of the old roof and the loading of the materials using a shingle pallet.

They figured around 63,000 nails were removed!

You can see a dozen contractors working in unison.

You can see the completion of the new roof and skylights. It was exciting to be a part of this transaction. 

Take a look at this video and understand this was all done in just TWO days!

 

 

 

 

 

  Have you witnessed a roof installation from above?

Hi Margaret.
I've never watched one from above but I had my roof replaced a couple years ago and watched much of the process. Pretty interesting.  I'm curious how much that cost because I know how much mine cost. Quite expensive, much of it thanks to the cost of industrial insurance for the crew.

Carol Williams Just left you a message. This was a team effort, with a bit of exchanging, bartering and good old working together to get it done.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland nice presentation on roof replacement.... I've never seen three layers on a roof.... that's a heavy load... many have double layers.... three IS allowed....

Kathy Streib With your creativity, I would love to see how you would use a drone.

Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland great video! We had our roof changed out a few years back and it was quite an interesting process. With skylights and 8 gables etc etc it was a lot of work for that team of guys. All in all it took about 5 complete days.  And sometimes I do run across roofs that have 3 or more layers of roofing......crazy!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  Putting a roof on a big deal...so much labor, so much material, so much time plus a deadline. Even more complicated with multiple layers.
