Faulty roof installation is one of the major roofing problems that occurs all the time.
When customers contact us for a quote for roofing works and we attend to quote, the majority of the time this is down to faulty roofing installation carried out from another contractors.
Faulty Roof Installation
Missing or damaged shingles, roof leaks, and other roofing problems are indications that your roof is starting to fail or has already failed.
Roof failure can be caused by many factors.
Continuous exposure to varying weather conditions can be one reason your roof is starting to fail. However, there is one issue that can make everything worse; faulty roof installation.
As experts in Roofing, we at LC Joinery Roofing and Building Work know how to help you detect signs of faulty installation so that you can solve the problem immediately.
If you suspect that your roof was poorly installed, here are some signs that you need to look out for
The 4 Faulty Roof Installation Signs
#1 Poor Shingle Placement
Rows of shingles or individual shingles that are placed incorrectly can allow water to seep into your interior.
This can cause water damage, mould growth, deterioration, and other roof problems.
#2 Incorrect Shingle Nailing
Nails are supposed to keep shingles in place.
However, if the nails were placed incorrectly or if there were too few used, this may cause shingles to be blown off by strong winds.
#3 Improper Gutter Installation
Your gutters are supposed to be able to direct water away from the roof and foundation of your home.
If the gutters were not installed correctly, water might not be redirected properly, which may cause it to get into your interior or damage your house’s foundation.
#4 Inadequate Flashing Application
Flashing is supposed to protect the protrusions on your roof, including the vents, pipes, chimney, and valleys (where two segments of the roof join).
Without the proper application of flashing, water can once again become a problem and cause damage to your interior.
