A well-designed and installed roof typically lasts for around twenty years. Getting a new roof can be a very huge investment. So, homeowners expect it to at least last that long.
But what if your new roof show signs of failing just right after it was installed? How does that happen?
In this blog, we will be going around the reasons why a new roof could fail. It is important for homeowners and property owners to understand this beforehand, so their resources, money, time and effort won’t be put to waste.
Here are some of the reasons why a new roof could fail.
1. The roofing contractor has poor workmanship.
Even the best shingles won’t matter if your roofers are not qualified or trained enough to install them. Imagine having improperly nailed shingles or flashing shortcuts in your new roof. It will just take a while before roofing problems to show up such as leaks and mold growth.
2. The roofers have used cheap and sub-standard roofing materials.
Some scam roofers cut down on cost as much as they can just to profit more. Beware of these roofers. They may offer a lower price, but it also comes with a price. In any roofing project, quality should always outweigh the price.
3. The roofers fail to plan for adequate ventilation.
The health of the roof highly depends on proper attic and roofing ventilation as it keeps it dry and away from all kinds of water damage. When having a roofing project, always check and ask for their ventilation strategies fit for your roof.
