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.
