There are many different types of roofs, and making sure yours is installed correctly is crucial to your peace of mind – and your bank account. Improperly-installed roofs not only have to be repaired; they can cause significant damage to the rest of your home. Once you find a roof contractor you trust, keep an eye on their work to ensure you get a roof that will stand the test of time.
In our last blog, we went over two common mistakes roofing contractors make, including improper shingle exposure and shingles badly suited to the roof’s slope. Today, we have two more things for you to watch for.
It’s easy to see when your contractor isn’t installing your shingles correctly, because they will look crooked. If you start to see shingles that aren’t perfectly aligned, take action immediately. If you don’t get it fixed, you may be spending a lot of money in the future. Rather than letting this happen, stop work and find someone new.
Valley Flashing Installed Wrong
Valley flashing plays a crucial role in protecting the seams of your roof from water. It should never be installed above the shingles. Instead, it should be under the shingles, nested into the seam. It will keep the water from getting into the your roof and damaging the structures beneath.
