Taking a shortcut is fine in other situations – but not when it comes to roofing projects. This is especially true during a roof replacement, which will require complete focus and precise workmanship. That’s why it always pays to work with a reputable contractor since the pros won’t make the following mistakes:
- Installing a new layer of shingles over the old one: This is called a layover, a quick and cheap way of installing a new roofing system. But the fact is that this method brings more harm than good. It doesn’t give you the opportunity to have the roof deck and structure inspected for possible damage, meaning any issues it may have will remain unresolved. A layover can also compromise the attic ventilation and put unnecessary stress on the existing roof structure, weakening it. Not only that – a layover can also void the warranty on your new shingles.
At TopTier Roofing, we make sure to do a complete tear-off before installing a new roofing system on your home. This allows us to deal with any problems in the deck and structure, and update the venting and insulation as necessary. And by ensuring a “blank slate” prior to the new roof installation, we can better guarantee that the new system can provide the superior weather performance you expect.
- Improperly nailing the shingles: The shadier type of roofer just nails the roof shingles willy-nilly, not checking whether the material will adhere properly to the roof deck. Some even skimp on the nails! This will never be an issue when you choose TopTier Roofing for your roof replacement. As an Owens Corning® Platinum Preferred Contractor, we always install our shingles the right way through SureNail® Technology. It allows for consistent, quality installation while providing the shingles outstanding gripping power.
- Using subpar roofing materials: The fact is that, for shady roofers, cutting corners by using low-quality materials allows them to pocket more money. You will never have to worry about this with TopTier Roofing. We represent only the most trusted brands in the industry. These include Owens Corning, the premier source of some of the highest quality shingle roofing systems available today. You’ll benefit not only from their excellent weather protection, but from their solid warranty coverage, as well.
