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.

As one of the oldest and most prominent names in the roofing industry, we assure you that your roof is in good hands with us. Call West Side Roofing at (216) 245-1050 to learn more about our services. We serve homeowners in Cleveland, Parma and Akron, OH.
