Getting a new roof installed doesn’t always mean that it will be an effective replacement. Whether you get it for storm damage or roof leak repair, the new roofing system can keep you protected.
However, there are times when they fail prematurely. This happens because of several unfortunate reasons, all of which are avoidable. Here’s why new roofs can fail and how you can fix them:
Low Quality Materials- Manufacturers usually provide the best materials for the roofing companies and the residences that use them. This means any completed project should be made with high quality materials that won’t break easily. If your residential roof replacement has failed, check the materials you used for it. Sometimes, manufacturing defects can go unnoticed until they get installed.
Poor Ventilation- All roofs need proper ventilation to work. The air circulation throughout the year is affected by the weather. Without vents, your roof’s temperature drastically fluctuates from cold to hot as time goes by. This change causes moisture to build up and damages the structure. Because of this, always make sure to check for, or install, vents before you replace the roof.
The Contractor at Work- The worst cause of any roofing issue is a subpar contractor. Even with high-quality materials, equipment and resources, a poor job causes long-term problems. If they fail to measure the roof or properly secure each part of your home, you should change the contractor. Instead, look for reliable experts in roofing and storm damage construction.
