The Roof Replacement Process

Roof Prep


Before starting the roof replacement, PITCH Roofing ensures that your property is well-prepared and protected. We safeguard plants, landscaping, and other delicate areas with protective coverings. Gutters and downspouts are shielded to prevent damage during the work. Additionally, any necessary measures are taken to protect windows, doors, and outdoor furniture. By preparing the site thoroughly, we minimize disruption and ensure a safe, clean working environment throughout the roof replacement process.

Roof Removal


During a roof replacement, our crews remove everything from the old underlayment and flashings to your old roofing material, leaving just your roof decking. By working through each individual layer of your roofing system, we give your new roof the best possible start. This thorough preparation is crucial for laying a solid foundation for the new roof installation, guaranteeing durability and top performance.

Plywood Inspection


Once the old roofing material is removed, the PITCH Roofing team conducts a meticulous inspection of your roof’s decking, which may consist of plywood or 1×6 hardboards. This step ensures that everything is up to current building codes and in suitable condition for the new installation. We identify and replace any weak or rotted wood, making necessary corrections to provide a strong, stable foundation for your new roof. This careful preparation helps extend the life of your roof and enhances its overall performance.

water barrier


PITCH Roofing utilizes a high-temperature rated, self-adhering water barrier, strategically installed at critical areas of your roof to ensure maximum protection. This superior product is capable of keeping your roof dry independently, but it primarily serves as a second line of defense against extreme weather conditions. Standard application includes placement in valleys and around roof penetrations. For enhanced resilience, there is an option to upgrade by installing the barrier over the entire roof, thereby creating an exceptionally durable roofing system.

Roof Underlayment


Underlayment is a crucial component of any roofing system, serving a dual purpose. It not only keeps the roof dry during construction but also acts as a long-lasting vapor barrier. At PITCH Roofing, we use a high-strength synthetic underlayment that is 40 times stronger than traditional felt paper. This advanced roofing technology lays flatter and maintains its integrity over time, unlike traditional underlayments, which can degrade. This ensures a more durable and reliable roof for your home.



The installation of the drip edge is a key step in constructing your new roof. This component not only strengthens but also protects the perimeter of the roof, laying the groundwork for the subsequent shingle installation. Our standard drip edge is made from 26 gauge metal and is available in five factory-painted colors: black, gray, white, brown, and beige. Additionally, we offer the option to custom fabricate the drip edge in any color you desire, ensuring it perfectly matches your home's aesthetic.

How to Find St. Petersburg Roofers You Can Trust


Your chosen roofing material is the main focal point of your roof, playing a crucial role in keeping your home dry and protected. At Pitch, we tailor our roof installation services to the material and ensure that your roof is properly installed for long-term safety and durability across all parts of your new roofing system. This careful approach helps ensure that your roof is as beautiful as it is functional.



Every home features a unique set of penetrations that emerge through the roof, such as vents and plumbing stacks. We understand that properly waterproofing these penetrations from the outset is crucial to preventing leaks and avoiding future repairs. Our team employs precise techniques and high-quality materials to ensure that each penetration is thoroughly sealed, safeguarding your home against water damage and contributing to the overall longevity of your roof. We also utilize rodent covers, installed over-top the plumbing penetrations. These guards protect against rodent damage and prevent debris and critters from entering the pipe. They are color-matched to the roof, providing a clean and uniform appearance.



Ridge ventilation is a critical feature installed along or near the peaks of the roof, designed to allow excess heat and moisture to escape from the attic space. This not only helps regulate the temperature within your home but also prevents moisture accumulation that can lead to structural damage. We also carefully calculate the specific ventilation needs of your attic space and employ the best methods to ensure optimal airflow. Our tailored solutions are designed to enhance the efficiency and longevity of your roof, safeguarding your home against potential issues related to poor ventilation.



Hip and ridge caps are essential components of a shingle roof, crafted from the same material as the field shingles but specifically designed for use along the peaks and hips. We use these specialized caps to effectively seal the joining sections of a roof, enhancing its overall structural integrity. Additionally, hip and ridge caps contribute to a sleek, finished appearance, ensuring that your roof not only performs excellently but also looks great from every angle.

Roof Replacement Cleanup


Our crews understand that the job isn't finished until the site is clean. After completing a roof replacement, our team conducts a thorough cleanup process to ensure your property looks its best. We meticulously remove all debris, nails, and materials from the work area, employing magnetic sweepers to catch any metal objects that might have fallen during the installation. This attention to detail means you can enjoy your new roof without the hassle of post-construction cleanup, ensuring your home and yard are safe and spotless.
