How To Avoid Getting Suck With A Deteriorating Roof

Thursday, December 16th, 2021 by Alexis Smith


If you get a "cheap roof" you're probably in for a whole lot of surprises, and we aren't talking about good surprises. You see, putting a roof on your house is like picking out new tires for your car, are you getting the cheapest tires? No, you are getting the middle to high range so it lasts longer. Same thing goes for roofs. You pick a crummy contractor whole is willing to do everything dirt cheap, well, you will get what you paid for. This is not to scare you, but to be informational and open your eyes.

 

Roofs can in fact, be installed wrong. Taking shortcuts is not the only way your roof can end up costing you and your family more money, but so does cheap material. The truth is, a roof that is done cheap doesn't last as long. Frankly, you deserve better than that! But, just to give you an idea of all the things that could go wrong, here is a list below:

 

1. Flashing - could be installed wrong or sizing could be off, causing leaks to seep in through your chimney walls.

2. Rotting Shingles - talking about cutting corners, what if the contractor doesn't replace your plywood that is already rotting... yikes!

3. Missing Shingles - well these probably were put on your roof wrong or the material is dirt cheap and won't even get you through a snow storm


Unfortunately, this is a small list, but the wide variety of things that can go wrong is highly likely.
