The roof in this particular video is made of PVC membrane. The first step is to remove the old roof. This is done with a tool that can get under the roofing material and pry it up so it can be pulled away. The debris then needs to get cleared away so nothing gets trapped under the new roof. Before the new roof is installed, insulation will be laid down and stapled in place. The new PVC membrane will then be rolled out onto the roof on top of the insulation. You will get to see every step of the process.
