Top Reasons Why Your New Roof Could Fail !


The replacement of a roof is a major undertaking that most homeowners will need to walk through at some point during their time in a home. The roof on a home is designed to provide a homeowner with several decades of reliable protection from the elements. A quality roof also has energy efficiency benefits, protects the home from pest infestation and more. It is clear that you need a quality roof on your structure for many reasons. However, the unfortunate reality is that many homeowners have gone through the time and expense of having a new roof installed only to soon discover that their new roof has failed in some way. There are several primary reasons why a new roof could fail, and understanding these causes can help you to make a better hiring decision when selecting a roofer.


Low-Quality Installation Work One of the most significant factors that will affect the quality of your home’s new roof is the quality of the installation work being completed. Improper techniques or shoddy craftsmanship can cause roof failure when even the highest quality materials are used.


Low-Quality Materials or Poor Use of Materials Many homeowners understandably want to get the best price possible on the installation of their new roof. Roofers who offer low-ball quotes, however, often have the practice of using low-grade materials. Some who use higherend materials may skimp on the quantity of materials used to save money on the installation. Remember that you get what you pay for with a roof installation project.


Poor Use of Flashing Flashing is a critical component of any roof installation project. It is generally installed around corners and edges to create a waterproof enclosure. For example, in areas near the chimney, skylights and other areas, there may be natural gaps between the roofing material and the built-in features. Flashing covers these gaps beautifully. However, some roofers will use caulk rather than flashing. Caulk has a very limited lifespan, and you will generally find that your roof has leaks quickly after installation when caulk was used rather than flashing.


Improper Ventilation Your new roof must be properly ventilated in order to prevent damaging heat and moisture build-up in the summer months and ice dams on the roof during the winter months. The roof system should be installed so that intake features bring fresh air into the attic while exhaust features draw warm, moist air out of the attic. When you are interviewing roofers and reviewing written estimates, pay close attention to this feature. Ask questions about ventilation techniques used to make a more educated decision about which roofer to hire.
