Steps we take before we Roof

1. Estimate your Cost

Golden Group Roofing will come to your home and take all the measurements we need to properly quote your roof repair or roof replacement project.

2. Prepare for Installation

Once your contract is signed, we will pick a date that works best for your schedule to perform the work. Golden Group will then prepare all the permits, dumpster delivery, and material delivery for the roof installation.

3. Installation day arrives

We’ll remind you in the days before your installation of the project start date and time. We also provide our clients with a list of items to do before construction begins, so that you’re ready to go when installation day arrives.

4. Site safety inspection

We want to make sure that the workers and the homeowners are safe throughout the process and that everyone knows how to enter and exit the home safely while we roof.

5. Removal of your old roof

Before we begin installing the new roof, we make sure that the old roof is removed. This lets us ensure that the wood decking underneath is in good condition. If it needs any repairs or attention, we handle that at this stage.

6. Installation begins

We begin by installing the ice and water shield barrier. This helps prevent leaks caused by wind-driven rain and ice dams and is installed everywhere that we think the home may be vulnerable to leaks.

Safety is always our top priority.

Building a Roof to protect your home.

7. Synthetic Breathable Felt

After ice and water shield is installed, the remainder of your roof gets covered in synthetic breathable felt, providing an extra layer between the roofing shingles and the roofing deck.

8. Roof edges are secured

This is an important step in the roofing system installation. This step secures your roof’s edges from rain and wind damages. We install F8 Aluminum Drip Edge on all the edges of your roof, as well as GAF Pro Starter Strip Shingles to help guard against shingle blow-offs. 

9. Asphalt roof shingles installed

Picking the right shingles and asphalt roofing material is one thing, but the longevity of your new roof depends largely on the quality of the installation. Golden Group’s experienced roofing team holds all the top manufacturer’s certifications, including President’s Club GAF Master Elite, the highest distinction in the industry.

10. Roof Ventilation installed

After the asphalt shingles have been installed, we will then install the roof ridge vents to help exhaust heat and moisture from your attic and properly ventilate the new roofing system and your home. We install 12 inch filtered GAF Cobra Snow Country Advanced Ridge Vent using 3 inch hand roofing nails. We finish it off with GAF TimberTex Ridge Caps, which offer excellent protection at high-stress areas of your roof.

11. Skylights, Chimneys, and Pipe Boots are all checked and sealed

We don’t forget about your roof accessories like skylights, chimneys, and pipe boots. We repair and replace skylights, re-lead and re-seal chimney bricks, and we replace the aluminum flashing on all your roof exterior pipes. 

12. Permit closed and roof warranty registered for you

Golden Group closes out every project by ensuring that all permits are approved with your municipality and that your new roof warranty is registered with the manufacturer. These final steps ensure your peace of mind on your new roofing system.  

Finishing up a job well done. That’s the Golden Group promise.

90% of homeowners replacing a roof today will ask the following question; How much does a new roof cost? Let’s take a moment to break it down.

Before we begin to break down the price and do the math, let's first realize that the roofing price is reflective of three major components.

  1. The material; what roof shingle manufacturer brand will you choose? In our expert opinion. We recommend GAF Roofing products and Certainteed Roofing products as these two manufacturers come out on top with consumer reports.
  2. The craftsmanship: Lets face it, this is the pot of gold in roofing. The company that has the best and the most skilled and certified workers will demand more for their time. This is indeed the most important key to roofing. After all, you are buying the installation of a new roof, not just roofing shingles. It is the hands on roof that will determine the quality of the roof and lifespan of the roof.  A GAF Certified contractor and a Certainteed Shingle Master will be able to provide you with enhanced roof warranties that offer protection for 50 years on product, and 25 years on workmanship.
  3. The warranty: the final nail of the roofing system. Here is what you need to know. First; what is the company warranty?, what is the manufacturer warranty>, and what is the labor warranty? Yes, there are 3 different warranties that you need to have the information for. Most companies will try and make these warranties appear as one and only advertise the highest number, but it is your job to filter out each one. To go a step further, most warranties that are promised to a homeowner are never registered or applied for. For peace of mind, do not release all payments, until your registered warranties have been applied and paid for.

  

The average roof replacement cost for a new roofing system with architectural shingles in Massachusetts today is between $4.50 per square foot to $6.50 per square foot.

In the middle of these questions, we’re also navigating internal debates about “...Well, how important is this new roof  to me?” Then, we start deciding on a budget that will accomplish the end goal. 

Given that a roof is a primitive need of humans, it essentially is the piece of the home that protects what matters most. Your family, your pets, that beautiful kitchen where you make unforgettable memories, it holds the living room space that you enjoy with a cup of coffee in hand and a couple of laughs with friends and family. The roof protects your sleep, that room where you get ready to start every week on Monday morning. All these important aspects of life are all cherished under one: Your Roof. 

 

The average roof replacement cost for a new roofing system with architectural shingles in Massachusetts today is between $4.50 per square foot to $6.50 per square foot.

How do we determine these numbers?

The roof cost starts to be evaluated by researching the company that is educating you on what components make up the roofing system

The roof cost is reflective of the company’s experience in the field and the training that their team has accomplished. The biggest mistakes in roofing occur in the installation process. Problems can almost always be attributed to human error, by installing products incorrectly. Experience and impeccable craftsmanship is something that is reflected in the roof cost. 

 

What can drive the price up? 

In city homes or more complex homes, the price for an asphalt roof replacement is $5.50 per square foot to $7.50 per square foot.

Roof Complexity

How complex is the roof of your home?  The roof cost is reflective of the level of complexity of the roof. If your home is complex, having several cuts, and turns, your due diligence is to protect your home and to qualify roofing contractors that are experienced to deal with complexity. 

Not all Products are created equal.

The cost of a roof also demonstrates the grade of shingles you are looking to install. There is a wide variety of shingle series you can choose from. In addition to the shingles, there are also other components that make up the roofing system to protect your home as best as possible when confronting the elements of nature: rain storms, heavy snow, hot and cold temperatures. Making sure that your contractor does not skip on all appropriate and mandated materials that make up the roofing system,  is vital. Many contractors will avoid adding certain products to cut and avoid costs. However, this can come at a high price when fixing the big problem that skipping steps caused. The roof cost also includes the coverage of all permits associated with the project. A permit fee must be paid to the city or town building department. Many contractors willingly avoid this process altogether because it’s an inconvenience, and it can be “costly.” However, in the event something goes wrong, the building permit is a document that protects the homeowner from faulty contractors. Make sure that the roof cost of the project covers the permit application by the contractor.

Make sure to study the properties of the company first. Although the roof price plays an important role in decision making, so does your protection and your trust in the company that will be touching your home's roof.
