A roofing installation is quite possibly one of the biggest home improvement projects you will ever undertake. However, with the right choice of materials and contractor, you probably will not need to have another replacement any time soon. With such significant amounts of time, money and effort that go into getting a new roof, you must choose a roofing company that you can trust will do the job completely and correctly.It’s not always easy to spot whether your roofer is doing a good job so it pays to be extra vigilant about certain red flags during a reroofing – including the following:
Insulation is an important part of any good roofing system, and reputable companies will always make sure to use the right type of product. One sure sign that your roofers might not be good is if they use phenolic foam insulation. This type of insulation has waned in popularity due to its poor reaction with water. Ask your roofers what kind of insulation they are using during a roofing installation.
Rooftop water pools sound like a luxurious add-on to any commercial property. In reality, it’s a symptom of uneven application of flat roofing materials. Pooling water increases your roof’s exposure to water and makes it more prone to penetration and rotting. If you notice water gathering in certain spots on your flat roof, your roofer might not have finished the work properly.
Gravel and pavers are sometimes used in some flat roofing systems to hold down the membranes and protect them against ultraviolet (UV) rays and general wear and tear. Roofers should make sure that ballast application is even throughout the whole roof.
