A roof is only as good as the installers behind it. Even if you purchase the best roof money can buy, it will mean very little if it isn’t installed properly. You may think you’re saving money by hiring an inexperienced roofing contractor, but the job they end up doing will likely cost you more money in the long run. Here are three ways to tell if your roof has been installed poorly.
1. A Lack of Uniformity
When it comes to a roof, we love uniformity as it speaks to a job well done. An experienced and skilled roofing contractor will lay each tile or shingle down with care and precision, resulting in a uniform-looking roof. Amateurs lack this attention to detail and the result is a roof that looks inconsistent.
2. Improper Nailing Techniques
In the grand scheme of things, nails might seem unimportant when installing a roof but that couldn’t be further from the truth. A professional roofer understands that certain roofing materials call for specific types of nails. With the wrong type or amount of nails, you could be inviting a host of different problems including leaks and blown shingles.
3. Rainbow Roof
A rainbow roof is contractor lingo that refers to roofs that seem to have different colors. It could be a case where the shingles on one side are not aligned with those installed on another side resulting in an uneven appearance. While this is mostly an aesthetic issue, it does bring to question the workmanship of the company you hired to install your roof.
