Roofing Problems You Avoid When You Work With a Pro

Monday, 20 November 2017 16:16

It’s tempting to do a roofing project on your own. While it may seem like you’re saving money, several problems immediately become apparent, like sourcing equipment, materials and the learning curve associated with repairs and replacements. It’s also easy to commit potentially costly mistakes.

You can avoid several of these when you work with a professional roofing company. Ethos General Contractors discusses these head-scratchers below.

Aesthetics and Mismatched Shingles

Asphalt shingles are made in batches, which means the shingles you’ll find in the store will only be similar if they come from the same manufacturer. Since this type of roofing is arguably the most popular, it’s easy for a specific stock of shingles to run out. You could be forced to install mismatched shingles, which would make your home look ridiculous from the curb.

Improper Roofing Installation

Almost all roofing problems trace their origins back to improper roofing installation, and the danger here is that they tend to manifest only after a few years. At first, your newly replaced roof may seem like it's working as intended when in truth it’s already harboring the beginnings of a costly problem. You won’t encounter this problem when we work with you, you can count on our professional experience in all of our roofing services, from repairs to replacements.

Roofing and Attic

The attic might seem like a forgettable portion of the roof, but it actually plays a role in regulating the health of your entire roofing system. Attic ventilation keeps your roof from drying out during the colder months and prevents moisture buildup and damage in summer. Keeping your attic ventilated is tricky and complex work, and committing even a simple error can be costly. That’s why it’s always better to hire a professional for your roof.
