Hiring non-professionals to work on your roofing may save you a little bit of money, but that could spell trouble for your Des Moines roofing in the long run. One reason is roofing mistakes that could be very costly to repair. Here are some of them.
- Mismatched Shingles — Non-professionals are likely to buy their roofing material from surplus outlets or warehouse sales. Even if you happened to hire skilled installers, your roof could end up with mismatched sections if they run out of the material halfway through. With specific colorations per manufacturer, it will be very difficult to find a perfect match. Fortunately, this has never happened with us professional and factory-certified roofers, as we always make sure there is enough roofing to complete the project.
- Improper Material Handling — Professional roofers have manufacturer training as an advantage and aren’t likely to commit amateur mistakes, which is especially critical when working on commercial roofing in Auburn. A common mistake is not breaking down asphalt kegs into smaller pieces before loading into an asphalt kettle, which runs the risk of starting asphalt fires and releasing toxic fumes.
- Using Damaged Equipment — From carabiners to nail guns, professional roofers always make sure their equipment are in good working condition.
- Using Defective Roofing Materials — This is especially critical when installing single-ply roofing membrane. An improper weld or a single puncture during installation could incur property damage resulting in costly repairs. Hiring professionals is your assurance that none of these would happen, and that substandard materials will never be used.
