A Roofer’s Day at CML Roofing and Contracting

Morning Briefing

The day starts early at CML Roofing and Contracting, where the team gathers for a quick morning briefing at 7 AM sharp. The foreman goes over the day’s schedule, outlining the job sites and tasks for each crew. Safety is always the top priority, and reminders are given about proper equipment usage and fall protection.

On-site Preparations

  • The first stop is a residential roof replacement in South Portland, ME.
  • The crew unloads the necessary materials, including bundles of shingles, underlayment, nails, and safety gear.
  • After setting up the ladder and securing the work area, the team starts removing the old, worn-out shingles.

Roof Installation

With the old roofing system removed, the crew begins the installation process. They lay down the underlayment, ensuring proper overlap and secure fastening. Then, the shingles are carefully aligned and nailed into place, row by row, following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Quality Inspection

As the installation nears completion, the foreman conducts a thorough inspection, checking for proper nailing patterns, ventilation, and flashing details. Any issues are addressed immediately to ensure a high-quality, long-lasting roofing system.

Cleanup and Next Job

  • Once the inspection is complete and the homeowner is satisfied, the crew cleans up the job site, ensuring no nails or debris are left behind.
  • After a quick lunch break, it’s off to the next job in Westbrook, ME, where a commercial flat roof repair awaits.

At the end of the day, the crew returns to the office, debriefs with the foreman, and prepares for another productive day tomorrow, dedicated to providing top-notch roofing services to homeowners and businesses throughout the Portland, ME area.
