Reasons Why a New Roofing System Could Fail

When your roof is newly replaced, you expect it to perform well, especially in the initial months or years. A properly-installed roof is a good investment to keep any structure safe and secure. There are some cases, however, when a roofer fails to deliver good services or products. West Side Roofing Co., your premier roofing provider, discusses some of the reasons a new roof could fail.

Reasons Why a New Roofing System Could Fail | West Side Roofing

Improperly Installed

Your contractor may use the best shingles available, but if they are not correctly installed, the roof can end up failing before its time. Before hiring a roofing company to attend to your roofing needs, do your own research, and know their background. An experienced roofer like West Side Roofing Co. can guarantee that our highly-skilled and trained installers will replace your roof with great precision.

Poor-Quality Materials

Low-cost roofing won't help you save money in the long run. The inferior material can undermine your roof's performance, eventually leading to water leaks or shingle blow-off. Make sure to ask your roofers about the kind of roofing options they offer.

Cutting Corners

Some contractors see chimneys as a decorative piece in your home. They have a tendency to cut corners and just use caulk for sealing. The problem with this material is that it can break after a while, allowing water to enter through the flashing. The best technique that your roofers can use is the combination of step and counter flashing when dealing with a chimney, skylight or wall.

Improper Ventilation

Imbalanced attic ventilation can contribute to heat and moisture buildup. When hiring a roofing company, make sure to address this, and let them inspect your attic space. By doing so, you can help keep your roof healthy.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Leaking Chimney and Other Chimney Issues

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
