Replacing your roof is one of those projects with very little room for error, even marginal ones. Mistakes usually cost a great deal time and money to fix, and in some cases, may require another replacement.
The maxim, “A clever person solves a problem; a wise person avoids it,” will serve you well when it comes to roof installation in Surrey. With that in mind, let Crown Residential Roofing discuss four mistakes to look out for and explain how to avoid them:
1. Installing Mismatched Shingles
This is usually the result of obtaining your shingles from different dealers. What you get is a roofing system with mismatched colors or shades. That’s not a sight you’d want to live with for the entire life span of your new roof.
As you can imagine, fixing this mistake will set you back a great deal, so it’s best to avoid it altogether. This you can do by making sure to get all the roof shingles from a single dealer. As the New Westminster roofing expert, we offer a variety of options to match the architecture and exterior design of your home.
2. Neglecting Attic Ventilation
Proper ventilation is crucial to the service life of a roofing system. Without it, your home’s indoor can suffer from excess heat build-up, which will ruin the insulation, raise the energy bills, and diminish shingle quality.
3. Driving in the Nails at the Wrong Angles
This can damage your roofing by ripping the shingle mat, which then leads to leaks. You’ll need to replace the broken shingles right away to prevent further damage.
4. Hiring the Wrong Roofing Contractor
