Re-roofing your house is a loud and nasty job, but it can be done quick, efficiently, and is a great time to review energy saving options.
It is a labor intensive process to remove the old shingles, but at Acadian we believe in putting a large crew on the project to get the job done quickly. Special care is taken to project your homes landscaping, lawn furniture, pool, and other backyard decorations. Typically, several sheets of plywood and tarps are used to help keep debris out of the flowerbeds so it can be placed into a dump trailer and disposed of at a landfill. For an additional cost, Acadian can also separate the asphalt material so it can be recycled for you.
