Our Roofing Process

24 Step Process for your Roofing Project:


  1. The crew walks around your home and moves any items that may be too close to the home that could get damaged.

  2. TARPS are placed on ground, around all shrubbery at tear-off sections. Tarps are also placed from eve hangings over shrubbery at tear-off sections to allow for them to breath to avoid damage from falling debris as well as burning from the heat.

  3. Toe Boards and 2x4’s are installed at the eve to maintain control of the tear-off debris, thus avoiding damage to your home and property.

  4. 100% tear-off of all existing roofing components to include shingles, felt, all pipe collars, all flashing details.

  5. Old nails are also removed to avoid them backing out and damaging your new roof system.

  6. Decking: All decking is inspected for damaged and is replaced as needed.


  1. Ice and Water Shield is installed in all valleys, around all pipes, at walls, around base of chimneys, skylights, all protrusions.

  2. Synthetic felt is used on all projects. Synthetic Underlayment is far superior then the standard felts on the market today.

  3. Drip Edge is installed on all rakes and eves. Note: Some decorative trim drip edge is not feasible.
    Nails: Roofing Service Specialists, LLC uses 1 1/4” nails and meets Miami Dade Specification by installing 6 nails per shingles, not the standard 4 that is required per shingle manufactures. Note: Some shingle specifications require 5 and 6 nails.

  4. Pipe collars: vents are always replaced with new and are set in plastic cement.

  5. International Building code as well as all shingle manufacturers require proper attic ventilation per per FHA Standards. RSS meets or exceeds those specifications.

  6. Chimney flashing is a key danger area. RSS installs Ice and Water at base and up chimney, use step flashing, cut a groove into the brick app 1” and install new counter flashing.

  7. Skylights are also have a high risk of leaking. RSS installs Ice and Water around frame and on to the deck. Install all flashing and caulk to form a water tight seal for years to come.

  8. Pipes and Vents are all panted to match the shingle color.

  9. At completion of installing your new roof, the crew foreman will do an inspection of all components, flashing details, no high nails, and over all appearance.

  10. Your entire roof will be cleaned to remove any debris with a broom or a blower.

  11. All gutters and downspouts will be cleaned of all debris to allow water to flow freely.
