Experienced and Certified Roof Replacement Experts in Kent
While roof replacements are one of the most expensive home remodeling projects a Kent resident can commission, the good news is they are only required every 15-25 years. Unfortunately, not all roofers install roofing systems correctly. When a roofer makes mistakes during this process, your roof will leak and costs mount as you are forced to repair faults and prevent more damage. You can avoid these problems when you work with a certified roofer with experience installing high-quality lifetime roofs.
How to Spot a Poorly Installed Roof Replacement
While certified roofing companies are skilled at what they do, unqualified roofers lack the expertise to get the job done right the first time. The outcome for the homeowner is always the same: premature leakage.
Here are two problems you might encounter if you fail to hire a certified roofer.
The first issue relates to nails and nailing techniques. Your contractor must use the right size, type, and grade of nail for the materials used. The nails need to be driven into the shingle at the proper depth. If they are too shallow, they will not penetrate the deck, resulting in leaks and missing shingles. If they are too deep, they risk cutting into the shingle and allowing water to seep in through the cracks.
The second issue to be aware of is the type of hardware used: items such as underlayment, vents, and flashing. A roof expert with knowledge of best practices, building codes, and installation specifications will ensure that this hardware works together to protect the roofing system from leakage.
