Re-roofing is one the biggest home improvement projects you would tackle in your life. The complexity of the job requires specialists with a wealth of experience and proven proficiency to guarantee success. This is why choosing a not-so qualified roofer is a disaster waiting to happen.
Here are the problems you can avoid when you hire the right help:
A trustworthy roofer uses the same dealer consistently. On the other hand, an unreliable one sources products from multiple suppliers. Since asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured in sets, combining products from different batches would result in visual inconsistency. Mismatching shingles would make your roof look incongruous, ruining your home’s curb appeal.
Non-Compliance to Installation Guidelines
All manufacturers have specific procedures in place for proper installation. If you in the market for a GAF roof, hire a Master Elite™ roofing company, like Universal Roofing and Exteriors, to ensure faultless work. If you choose a non-certified contractor, he or she might deviate from GAF’s requirements, which might void your warranty.
All seasoned roofing contractors understand the value of proper attic ventilation and insulation. They help keep your attic cool in summer and dry in winter. They reduce the chances of shingle curling and condensation-related issues, such as rotten wood deck and mold growth.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about inexperienced roofers. Without putting a premium on attic climate, the chances of roof failure is high.
In any roof replacement, fresh flashing is a must. It must be in mint condition to waterproof your home’s most vulnerable areas, like valleys or penetrations. However, roof leaks usually happen due to premature flashing failure, affecting the structural integrity of your siding, windows, and other parts of your home.
Many dishonest roofers notoriously reuse old pieces of flashing to lower their operating costs at the expense of customers. To ensure nothing in your new roofing system was salvaged, investigate the qualifications of your prospective contractor.
