3 Reasons a New Roof Could Fail

When you get a new roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, typically your expectation is that it will last for years and years. However, even if you get a new roof put on, there are circumstances where your new roof could fail long before it should. Read on to find out how a new roof could fail shortly after being put on.


1) Issues with the Manufacturing of the Roofing Material.

All asphalt shingles are not made alike. They come in a variety of different grades and levels of quality. Manufacturers could cut production costs by opting for a cheaper grade of asphalt. The chemical properties of asphalt are vital to the lifespan of the shingle, as it determines the ability to withstand the elements. If the asphalt is poor quality, if there's too much-powdered stone filler or if the manufacturing process is not great, the granules will come off the shingles must faster and in greater quantities than normal. Luckily, for this issue, you should have a manufacturer's warranty. Be sure to ask your roofer about the warranty before you have a new roof installed.

2) Improper Installation by the Roofing Contractor

No matter if you purchased the best shingles on the market, poor installation by the roofing contractor could lead to premature roof failure. Therefore, it's important you hire a well-experienced, knowledgeable roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks to do the job. Be sure to check their reviews and references, and see how long they've been in business. When you do have a new roof installed, be sure to ask the roofer if they offer any warranty for their installation work, as the manufacturer's warranty only covers defects with the material, not the installation.

3) Improper Ventilation of the Roof

Ventilation of the underside of the roof is directly related to the life expectancy of your shingles. Poorly ventilated roofs create an environment for moisture to build up in the attic spaces. Excess moisture under the roof shingles can cause the wood to move more than it's supposed to. This can lead to premature failure of your new roof. During the winter months, a build-up of heat in the attic can lead to ice dams. An attic ventilation system that's properly balanced helps keep your roof in optimal condition.
