4 Reasons Your New Roof Could Fail

When homeowners invest in a new roof, they do so confident that it will last for a long time. Not only does a new roof cost a lot of money, but installing it also takes time. However, there are still instances when even brand-new roofs could fail. West Side Roofing, your trusted roofing provider, shares four common reasons.

4 Reasons Your New Roof Could Fail

Poor Choice of Materials

Like many things, you get the roof for which you pay. Choosing the roofing contractor with the cheapest bid might be tempting, but keep in mind that they might have skimped on or cut costs on necessary materials to be able to come up with such an affordable price tag. Treat your roof as an investment, not just in your property, but also for your family. From this perspective, would you still want to skimp on quality just to save a few dollars? West Side Roofing only uses high-quality materials, so you're assured that every penny spent is worth it.

Poor Workmanship

The best roofing materials in the world could still fail if they were installed by an inexperienced contractor. Slipshod workmanship will force you to pay for repairs that could have been prevented. Established roofing contractors take the time to inspect and double check every application to ensure that not even a drop of water seeps into the finished product. West Side Roofing has provided roofing services to Ohio residents for 85 years, and we have never had a dissatisfied client.

Inadequate Ventilation

Installing a roof without inspecting the attic's airflow can result in moisture build-up in the summer and ice dams in the winter. Look for a roofer that's knowledgeable about ventilation technology and would actually take time to analyze your home's current ventilation situation. Improper Flashing Installation Flashings are more than just ornaments for your roof. If laid properly and with the right sealant, they add extra protection against leaks. Ask your contractor about the type of sealant they will use. If it's caulk, you're better off finding a more competent roofing company.
