Being told you need a roofing replacement can be hard to hear. Obviously, the concern over the cost is uppermost in your mind, but you’ve also heard the horror stories of the bad things that can happen. The good news is that you do not have to become a statistic. It is possible to enjoy an exceptional roofing replacement experience – provided you avoid a few of the mistakes that can make it otherwise. Here are a few things that can go wrong, and how to avoid them.
- Takes Forever to Complete – The last thing you need is your old roofing shingles to be torn off and then wait days for the contractor to return to complete your roofing replacement. If it were to rain, you could experience a lot of interior water damage. The best way to avoid this scenario is to hire a roofing replacement specialist who puts all their energy and time into one job at a time.
- Voided Warranty – A warranty isn’t worth the paper it is written on if the installer does not comply with the installation requirements of the shingle manufacturer. You can avoid this by knowing what is being installed and maintaining communication with the roofing replacement professional to be certain they are adhering to proper methods and techniques.
- Poor Workmanship – Even the best quality shingles cannot perform properly or look right if they are installed poorly. To avoid this scenario, be leery of the lowest quote and choose a professional with years of experience instead. You can get a competitive price from a reputable roofer, but a really low price should make you wonder.
