How to Verify if Your Roofer Did a Good Job

by Legend Roofs OK Roofing contractor Norman OK

The most expensive aspect and the most crucial part of your home maintenance is your roof. Moreover, this is also the area where there is a shortage of companies that offer quality service. After spending a lot of money you always expect that the result is fantastic. However, if the roof is poorly repaired or replaced it will lead to expensive troubles shortly which will cost more money.  Let’s have a look at what must be verified once the roofers have done their work.

Your Roof Includes Drip Edge Flashing

This is one of the areas where the shady contractors come to play their role. Drip edge flashing is a material that needs to be installed at every edge of your roof as it will prevent the water from damaging your home and will guard it against different types of pest infestations in the attic.

This part of the roof is an essential requirement, but most homeowners lack the skill to tell whether their home has a drip edge attached or not. Usually, people get to know about the problem when the roof starts leaking or there are signs of moisture in the home.

Every side of the roof must have a drip edge, therefore when the work is done, you must look around all the sides to see whether the drip edges have been installed or not. It is metal flashing that is attached between the underlayment and shingles that will keep the water away from the roof to the gutters to avoid any kind of damage. 

Your Roof Looks Even and Uniform in Appearance

Your roof must look uniform when it is completed. If there is any uneven space on the roof, then you must check it right away or ask the roofing company to do a quick inspection of that area either to catch them right away or to be careful about it. Additionally, your roof should be done in the same materials from beginning to end.

They Use a Quality Underlayment

Your underlayment plays an important role in your roofing structure. You must check on time whether the roofing company is using an underlaying in your roof or not and get it done. The underlayment act as the first barrier from the inside to protect your home from moisture or water leaks. It can also extend the lifespan of the roof itself. It is a crucial aspect of any roofing project.

They Implement Effective Flashing Practices

The flashing system must be verified as it will prevent all kinds of water leaks on the roof. You will notice that a good roofing company in Norman OK will apply plenty of metal flashing around the leak-prone area which will help in preventing the water leaks. Additionally, chimneys require both step flashing and counter flashing. 

Some roofing companies do not have a good repute and if you have mistakenly chosen them, then you would see they have done a low-class work on the metal flashing and the sealants are also of low grade. Moreover, they cannot stand up to the weather and will break down quickly, leaving you to deal with potential leaks. 

They Leave the Job Area as They Found It

The best thing about the right roofing company is that they leave the roofing area and the area of your house as it is as they have found it. All the debris is sent to the scrape area and the whole area is cleaned to avoid any kind of inconvenience. Many will even bring their construction dumpster to tidy up the work site as they progress.
