4 Roof Replacement Mistakes To Avoid

Replacing your roof can be a big project. It's tricky and complex work for a non-professional, not to mention risky. It can become a daunting DIY project, and it's easy to make a mistake that can affect the performance of your new roofing system. West Side Roofing discusses four rookie roof replacement mistakes to avoid.

4 Roof Replacement Mistakes to Avoid | westside roofing

  1. Reusing Old Flashings
    Flashings are thin metal strips that protect your roof from water intrusion, and you'll usually find them in the roof's more vulnerable parts. Because it takes the brunt of water damage, it gets worn down easily and will eventually necessitate a replacement. Your old flashings may look salvageable, but our roofers do not suggest repurposing them and reinstalling them on your new roof. It's already worn down and it won't protect your roofing from water intrusion anymore. In fact, it may end up costing you more than a new flashing if the reused flashing unexpectedly fails on you.
     
  2. Mismatched Shingles
    Mismatched shingles is a design faux pas that you can bring down the value of your home and decrease your curb appeal. This usually happens when you the contractor you're working with isn't consistent with its suppliers. At West Side Roofing, our consistent supplier is GAF, which means you'll never experience mismatched shingles when we work with you for roof replacement.
     
  3. Forgetting the Attic Space
    Attic ventilation is an often forgettable part of roof replacement, but it's actually critical to the health of your new roofing. Proper ventilation ensures that your roof remains cool during summer and doesn't dry up during winter.
     
  4. Not Hiring a Professional
    Roof replacements are one roofing project you can't do alone, and it's always better and smarter to have a contractor work with you during your home improvement project. When you work with our roofers, we'll make sure that your new roof is properly ventilated and accurately installed so that it doesn't encounter problems and will look good protecting your home for a very long time.
