Just as the human body ages over the years, so do roofs. Everyone wants their roof to stand the test of time and last forever. It offers sturdy protection, especially if made from the best materials available. Even with excellent installation and thorough maintenance, however, roofs can still fail.
Incorrect calculations for wind uplift are typical examples of roof design errors that can result in a roof failure. This also includes selecting roofing system that is compatible with the existing structure conditions.
Improper installation of pipes and flashings may result in roof failure. Although there are some repetitive processes in installation, detail work can vary day to day. In particular, errors in nailing the shingles to the roof, incorrect nailing pattern, and poorly installed flashings can all cause the roof to leak and fail.
All roof materials have ambient temperature limitations. Application of roofing materials in conditions not suitable to the roofâ€™s limitations will lead to failure.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no maintenance-free roofing. All kinds of roofs require some level of maintenance. In fact, from the moment a contractor installs the roof, it undergoes continuous deterioration, making installation an important part of the equation. Apart from making roofs last longer, timely and comprehensive repairs also provide cost savings in the long run.
