What Are the Common Roofing Mistakes You Need to Avoid?

There's a saying that not all things should be viewed in black and white. When it comes to roofing, however, you can't risk being in a gray area. Going with reputable and highly experienced roofers is a surefire guarantee that you're getting the high-quality roof you deserve, but nevertheless, it's best to stay vigilant.

What are The Common Roofing Mistakes You Need to Avoid

What Common Issues Should You Be Wary Of?

First things first, make sure that your contractor carries insurance. Accidents are unavoidable, but unforeseen expenses definitely aren't. If something undesirable happens to one of your roofer's workers, you shouldn't be held liable for the fees and the damages.

Amateur roofers are often guilty of using low-quality materials during repairs and replacements. Not only does this compromise the quality of your roof, but it also deprives you of the hard-earned money that you invested.

Let's say that you've done your research, and your chosen roofers work with trusted names. The next thing you have to determine is if they're installing these materials correctly. Even the slightest mistake at nailing can end up ruining your roof in the future. Double-check the shingles and the flashings. Are they secure? Were they replaced properly?

Lastly, ask the contractor if they've inspected your attic. Any experienced roofer would know how the attic's ventilation can affect the entire roof system, so neglecting it can greatly affect the performance of your roof. Failing to do so can lead to a weaker insulation, which would ultimately result to higher utility bills.

How Can You Avoid Being a Victim?

All these could be avoided by doing a background check on your potential roofers. Find out the brands and names they work with and look for feedback from previous clients. If they're anything less than satisfied with the service they've received, it's best to steer clear.

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

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
