A roof is expensive, because it is necessary. And many claims in the construction stem from roof defects.  There are many steps a property owner can take to reduce these defects, This includes regular inspections, exploiting your roofing warranties, and using insured, licensed roofing contractors.

 

Regular Inspections

Having a roofing inspection performed twice a year is a sound investment. It is an excellent way to catch minor problems before they become major problems, such as a roof replacement. Not catching these issues can be costly.

But, some of the most common defects are caused by roofing contractors, due to improper installation, poor workmanship, or defective materials. This can lead to blistering, billowing, and water intrusion.

Consider your choices for a roofing contractor carefully.

 

Hiring your EXPERIENCED roofer

Roofing can SEEM simple, many is the roofer’s helper that decided to put up their own shingle and decide they know what they’re doing. But lack of roofing experience has played a big role in the roofing defects. Additionally, if

these amateurs are injured on your property you can be liable for their injuriees and property damage.
