Common Roofing Mistakes to Avoid

 In Blog

If you want to get the longest lifespan possible from your new roof in Denver, Co, you’ll need excellent materials and an equally excellent roofing company to get the job done. Not every roof is made equal, however. Roof installation teams with little experience and homeowners determined to do the job themselves can make costly mistakes. Just one wrong move could have long-lasting effects on your home. With a qualified roofing team, you can avoid these mistakes:

Roof Damage Colorado

Professional Roofers have the experience necessary to get the job done right on the first try.

Inadequate Contractor’s Insurance

A number of problems could occur during a roofing job. If an unqualified team handles your installation, your property could be damaged. Additionally, someone could be injured on your property. In the worst case, someone could be injured due to a poor roof installation after the completion of your new roof. If any of these problems occur, you could be held liable. A reputable roofing contractor can provide full documentation of their insurance policy in order to prove that they are properly insured. 

Forgetting About the Attic

Rookie installers don’t understand that a great roof is made up of more than just its shingles. It’s a whole system that requires a secure deck, ventilation, and proper insulation. Every one of these components is necessary for your roof to last.

Multiple Shingle Layers

Did you know that in most Colorado municipalities, it is unlawful to have more than two layers of shingles on your roof at a time? There’s a good reason; if you don’t uninstall your old shingles before installing new ones, it becomes harder to inspect your roof for weak spots or leaks later down the road. 

Mismatched Shingles

Colorado’s top roofing contractors know to double-check that the shingles they are provided all come from the same batch. Different batches of shingles can vary in color shades, and purchasing shingles from mixed batches can leave your roof looking unsatisfactory.
