A new roof can be a beautiful upgrade for your home. When thinking about a home improvement up-grade such as a new roof, there are a lot of things that you need to take into consideration, including what materials you are going to use, your color choice and your desired style. But one of the most important considerations of course, is the installation. Roofing installation is a big job and it is critical to have it done correctly. A qualified roofing contractor can help you with this investment and save you time and money.
A poorly installed roof replacement can have serious effects on the home. If a roof is not installed correctly, it can lead to leakage, water damage, stains, mold and even insect infestation! Also, roofing materials must be secure to withstand severe weather conditions.
Most installations are similar but can differ depending on the materials used. For example, slate tile roofs will require a solid roof that can hold excess weight and is installed by stacking one edge over another until the material reaches the top. Composition roofing is installed in layers, with the edges overlapping one another with a cap piece on top. Metal sheet roofing is fitted together vertically to make a water tight seal. If you have a low pitch or flat roof, a tar and pitch roofing will be applied with alternating layers of tar and felt rolled out to cover the area of the roof.
Roofing installation requires labor and materials. A roofing contractor will be your source for planning an installation that will work within your budget and be done in a professional and timely manor. Most contractors offer a guarantee with their product and installation.
Make sure you research the company you hire for your roofing job, check references and with BBB. The last thing you want is a cheap roof that starts leaking in the winter and the company that did the job no where to be found. This happens all to often, so do your research on the companies that contact you.
When you make the plans to invest in a new roof for your home, the actual installation is the most important part of the job. When it is finished and your home has a great new look, you can then appreciate the hard work and patience it took to improve your home.
