The success of your roofing project depends on the skill of your contractor of choice. Mistakes can occur during the re-roofing process that could prove costly down the road. That’s why it’s important to choose your roofer wisely. Here are four common roofing mistakes that inexperienced roofers make:

1. Low-Sloped Decks

Residential roofs are generally steep. However, there can still be times when this isn’t the case. Low slopes can make your home an easy prey for water infiltration during a particularly heavy downpour. When there are areas with little to no inclination, it’s up to the contractor to create one.

2. Lack of a Drip Edge

Incorrect installation or the total lack of a drip edge can cause serious roofing issues. Among these are deck or fascia damage and general aesthetic degradation. No metal roofing system would be complete without a metal drip edge covering its perimeter.

3. Improper Nailing

This is a common problem when inexperienced roofers tackle shingle installation. Most of them are at a loss regarding how many fasteners the system needs. This results in underdriven, overdriven, and high nails. Work with a reputable contractor to avoid this problem.

4. Absence of Leak Barriers

Leak barriers provide roofing systems with an extra layer of protection. This is especially true in vulnerable areas where perforations can occur due to fasteners and nails. Accessories, chimneys, eaves, skylights, valleys, and vertical walls are among the parts of the roof that need leak barriers.
