Signs of Poor Roofing Installation

Proper installation ensures your roof will work properly for a long time. Non-professional roofers may fail to install roofing according to the manufacturer's instructions due to their lack of training, leaving you with insufficient protection from the elements.

To help you detect shoddy work, here are the signs of poor roofing installation. Errors in Shingle Placement Manufacturers have a recommended spacing measurement for each asphalt shingle to accommodate the material's thermal expansion and contraction. Poor asphalt shingle spacing will increase the risk of leaks. If you work with a certified contractor like A1 Quality Roofing, Inc., trained experts will work on your project and ensure proper installation methods. Odd Appearance Proper roof installation has a uniform appearance. All the asphalt shingles are placed properly without any drab or gaudy spots. If your roof looks odd or the shingles look misaligned, your roof was installed poorly and needs to be redone. You can contact the original contractor to correct the issue or hire another qualified roofer to help you. Wrong Nails Sturdy asphalt shingles need long nails that go through the roofing material and sheathing. Unscrupulous roofing companies may swap it out for short, thin nails that wouldn't dig through the material and sheathing, leaving your roof vulnerable to damage during storms. Misaligned Gutters Gutters should be aligned towards downspouts. Poorly installed gutters may not have slopes and leave rainwater in the system. The remaining water will infiltrate your fascia and attic during heavy rainfall. If you see your gutters with plenty of water after heavy rain, hire a roofer to check and adjust them.
