Putting your roof in the hands of a contractor can be a stressful journey. The roof of your business or home is its first defense against all the elements, and without it, you will pay a high price. The good news is, Planet Roofing is here to give you some signs you should watch for to make sure whoever is working on your roof is giving you the best work possible.
In our last blog, we looked at the risks of incorrectly-installed shingles and flashing. In today’s blog, we are going to look at two last things to watch for.
Failure to Secure Valley Flashing
We talked about valley flashing in our last blog, and we’re bringing it up again, because it handles the largest volume of runoff. It has to be sealed and and secured properly, or you will be pestered with water problems in your attic.
Incorrect Shingle Overhang
Take the time to look at the overhang of your new shingles. They should extend past the edge of the roof about an inch to an inch and a half. If they hang over too far, strong winds will catch them and rip them off. If the shingles don’t hang over enough, they won’t be able to keep the water out of your roof’s inner structure.
