Investing in a new roofing system for your home requires is a big investment, and the last thing you want to happen is for it fail prematurely. Fortunately, you can easily avoid this by arming yourself with some basic knowledge about the common causes of early roof failure. Read on as Universal Roofing and Exteriors explains how new roofs can suddenly fail without warning.
You could purchase the best shingle system on the market, but if your new roof isn’t properly installed, it won’t perform well. An improper installation might be caused by failing to ventilate the attic properly, not installing enough leak barriers on the roof, or many other factors.
Even if poor installation doesn’t cause your roof to completely fail, it might require you to spend significant funds on roof repair each year.That’s cost you don’t want to accrue, so we recommend you always hire a trustworthy, professional roofer for your new roof installation project.
Poor Attic Ventilation
Again, lack of proper attic ventilation can spell the premature doom for your new roof. Ventilation is essentially what allows your roof to “breathe”—keeping it cool during the warm summer months and preventing it from drying up in winter. Poor attic ventilation during summer, for example, causes moisture build-up, which creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew in your attic, while also weakening your shingle system and underlayment from the inside.
Choosing Cheap, Poor-Quality Materials
As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” A roof replacement project is the last thing you want to skimp on; after all, your roofing is responsible for more than brightening up your façade—it protects your home, too.
