You know that your roof is important, but do you know why it’s so important to have it installed correctly? A poorly installed roof can lead to a host of issues and problems. And the worst part is, these issues may not show up until they’ve caused some major damage. So let’s take a look at what happens when you don't get your roof installed right.
The Short-Term Consequences of Poorly Installed Roofs
If you think that having an improperly installed roof won’t cause any immediate problems, think again! As soon as the shingles start to come unstuck or flapping in the wind, they lose their ability to protect your home from water damage. This means that even if it hasn’t rained yet, those gaps are letting moisture get in where it shouldn’t be. And because moisture equals mold and mildew, that means you could be facing an indoor air quality issue sooner than later.
The Long-Term Consequences of Poorly Installed Roofs
A poorly installed roof can also mean serious consequences down the road—literally. The weight of snow and ice is no joke on our roofs—especially in places with harsh winters like Canada—so if your shingles aren’t secured properly, all that winter weather can cause them to buckle and break under the pressure.
Not only will this leave your home vulnerable to further water damage during the spring thaw, but it will also cost you a lot more money in repairs than it would have cost to simply do the job right the first time around.
At the end of the day, when it comes to protecting one of your most valuable investments—your home—you really can’t afford to skimp on quality materials or installation techniques for your roofing project. Taking care of small problems now will save you time and money down the road by preventing larger issues from happening.
