You’ve probably heard your share of horror stories about poor roof installation. Given how the project takes considerable time and money, it’s downright alarming to discover they have been wasted because the contractor took shortcuts. To determine whether your own roof is incorrectly installed, look for these telltale signs.
Incorrect Shingle Placement
Asphalt roof shingles should be layered the right way to prevent water from seeping through openings and ending up inside your home. It’s obvious if they’re not placed correctly because a row of shingles will appear raised and lopsided instead of uniform and seamless. You should also take note of any shingles that are the wrong color or size. It’s possible that the contractor has cut corners.
This won’t be an issue if you work with Roofer Chicks. We use only high-quality GAF asphalt shingles in every roof we install. Because we are certified by this trusted industry name, you can count on us to finish the job to stringent quality specifications.
Improper Shingle Nailing
Check your roof closely after a windstorm. Is there a large section of shingles missing from your roof? High winds can blow off shingles, sure, but this extent of damage doesn’t usually occur if your roof is properly installed and still fairly new. One possible reason is that the contractor didn’t nail the shingles correctly or used the wrong number of nails for the task. Shingles that aren’t attached to the roof are more prone to blow-offs and water intrusion.
