Every roof is different. In essence, each roofing system has varying needs. That’s why only expert roofers should perform a roof replacement. Professional roof contractors ensure the success of a roof replacement project.
Additionally, we can take care of the issues that an ordinary person may not know thoroughly. To help you understand how our experts in roofing in Columbus, OH, work, here are three common issues that we solve:
No Leak Barrier and Drip Edge
According to GAF, lack or inaccurate installation of drip edge can lead to untimely damage to your deck and fascia. It can also serve as the entrance to the attic for insects and small animals. On the other hand, incorrect installation of the leak barrier makes the valleys, eaves, vertical walls, and other parts vulnerable to leaks. A leak barrier gives extra protection to areas with punctures caused by fasteners or nails. A good roofer won’t miss adding a drip edge and a leak barrier, so choose a contractor wisely.
Lack of Ventilation
Another common blunder is not adding enough ventilation. Correct attic ventilation makes proper airflow possible. It keeps your attic cooler in warm months and drier during cold months. Adequate ventilation also cuts down on your monthly energy bills. Did you know that proper ventilation could extend the life of sheathing and roofing materials? Likewise, it reduces the chances of leaking. Given these many benefits, make sure you don’t skip on adding proper ventilation.
Some homeowners think that their responsibility to their roofs ends after its installation. The job is just starting, however.
