Many Dallas roofing companies do their very best to install roofs the right way, making sure it will last for a long time and it will be easy to maintain. However, there are some roofers who only rush to finish their job and get their money, so it is very important to know how to tell the difference between the two.
In case you are not sure, you can call on a certified home inspector, who can help you identify any weakness related to poor roofing installation.
For instance, a properly installed roof should have a drip edge flashing also. Many homeowners are unable to tell whether their roofs have this installed feature or not, but it is often related to roof leaks and moisture retain.
Another obvious sign of poor roof installation is the fact that your roof does not look uniform. In other words, shingles were unevenly applied to the roof’s structure, creating a less aesthetic appearance for your home.
At the same time, nailing techniques may also be wrongly applied, in case of improper roofing installation. Nails can either be in the wrong places or direction, or they can be overdriven. Using nails which are prone to rusting is another bad idea for roof installations.
