When getting a roof repair or replacement, hiring a reliable contractor is essential. Even if you invest in high-quality materials, they can still fail early when not installed properly. However, it could be quite difficult to discern a good roofing job from a poor one.
Read on to learn the common signs of a bad roofing job.
Many poor roofing jobs are easy to spot and you can even see some from the ground. Most times, the visual signs of improper roof installation can develop years after the job. Usually, they become apparent after a severe storm. If these signs showed up not long after the installation and even without major storms, it is a strong indication of a poor roofing job.
Stains on the Roof’s Surface
Roofs that are leaking usually have black stains on the surface. When you see these spots on your roof, immediately check your attic. You’ll know water has entered your interior spaces if the humidity levels are high and there are water stains on the walls and ceilings or the presence of mold. Moreover, it’s still best to get a professional roof inspection to determine and address the source of leaks.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
After an extreme weather event, you may notice your roof is missing shingles. However, if most homes in your neighborhood were unscathed by the storm and you are the only one dealing with a damaged roof, the damage could be due to poor installation. Fortunately, this kind of damage can be repaired without needing to replace the entire roof. Make sure to get your roof inspected following a weather event because not all signs of storm damage are apparent until they have affected other parts of your home.
