Installing a new roof on your home is an important project. Your home needs a fully functioning roof to protect its interior from the natural elements.
A roof installation is an intricate and often expensive project to undertake, and naturally, you expect excellent service from your roofing contractor. However, lousy roofing jobs are common, and they often go unnoticed by an untrained eye.
Bad roofing jobs occur as a result of a poor roof contractor or a roofing contractor trying to cheat you out of a good roofing job.
Not sure if your roofing company did a good job? These are some of the signs that you should look out for.
Damaged or Missing Shingles
If your roof installation project has just been completed and you notice some damaged or missing shingles, your contractor may have tried to rush through the job and failed to install all the shingles on your roof correctly.
If your neighborhood is experiencing some bad weather and you already have some shingles that have come loose, you may need to have your contractor come and look at your roof because the roofing job is clearly incomplete.
Lack of Uniformity
It’s essential to check out your roof at all angles to ensure that your roofer manages to create uniformity with your roofing materials.
A lack of uniformity could mean that your roofing contractor used different types of shingles to complete your roof. Also, check that your shingles are running in a straight line and not forming weird shapes along your roof.
A leaking roof is an annoying problem, especially if you’ve just had a new roofing system installed.
Your leaking roof may result from your roofer failing to install an underlayment. The underlayment is the barrier between your shingles and your roofing deck. The underlayment protects the interior of your ceiling and your home from moisture and debris. Having no underlayment is sure to cause rapid deterioration of your roofing system.
Besides hearing the distant dripping of water in your home, leaks may present themselves in your home as stained ceilings and walls, stained roofing shingles as well as a significantly moist attic area.
Roof Decking Wasn’t Inspected
To inspect your roof decking, your old roofing shingles need to be torn-off to get a clear picture of the state of your roof decking. Without tearing off the old shingles, your roofer may miss any damage or deterioration that may be occurring on your roof deck.
