When you’re installing a new roof on your home, there are a couple big points to consider. Ultimately, you want the project to result in a long-lasting roof that protects your home for a couple of decades. Even as asphalt shingle roof should give you about 20 years if installed correctly, but it needs to be installed correctly.
A bad installer could ruin a great roof, costing you money to redo your roof again and compromise your home.
Signs of a Bad Roofing Job
There are a lot of signs that your roof might not have been done correctly. Here are a couple:
Your roof starts losing shingles
Allows leaks to form
Wears down too quickly
Doesn’t have an underlayment
These problems could naturally occur over time but they shouldn’t start shortly after installing a new roof, and they could definitely lead to costly fixes down the line.
You should watch out for contractors who don’t thoroughly examine the home, the roof, and attic. If they skip over properly flashing your chimney or valleys, these vulnerable points will take tons of water damage and be the first to fail. At the same time, if they miss water damage in the attic, they won’t know where the problem is occurring and how to actually prevent it from happening again.
We installed a new roof for a homeowner who’s asphalt roof failed after just one year because of a poor installation. The roof has terrible leaks and caused tons of water damage to the ceilings. This why it’s crucial to choose a reputable company with expert installers.
