When it’s time to install a new roof, you may only consider installation costs. However, even if you get a good deal on an installation, you will end up spending more in the long run without considering other factors besides the estimate. At Paradigm Roofing, we pride ourselves on our quality service and work, and want to share with you, three tips to protect your roof. We hope we can help extend the life of your new roof with this important advice.
Make Sure Your Attic Is Properly Ventilated
Your attic traps air that becomes much hotter than outside temperatures during the summer. This can cause premature aging of your roof and warping or cracking of the wood framing. Protect your roof by making sure you have the correct attic ventilation. Proper ventilation will also keep the rooms of your house cooler.
Check for Quality Materials Appropriate for Your Roof
A common problem we find when examining damaged roofs is poor quality materials. It may seem less costly to use a lesser standard of supplies, but it ends up costing in repair fees in the years to come. Make sure that the materials are good quality and are the proper type for the kind of roof you are having installed.
Ask Questions About the People Installing Your New Roof
There is a reason why some roofers are better at their jobs than others. Good roofing personnel are trained and skilled at their specific tasks. One of the most important tips for protecting your roof is to find out if the people who are going to install your new roof are trained to do it. No matter how good your ventilation or materials are, if your roof is installed with poor craftsmanship, you will face premature repairs and replacement.
