Residential roofing projects are not easy. It can be back-breaking work outside under the hot sunshine. Most people prefer to get the job done as quickly as possible or hire someone else to do the job for them.
However, rushing the job can lead to additional difficulties. In this video, you will learn about some of the most common roofing difficulties.
Before nailing down shingles, it is important to check the package for defective shingles. Professionals know to only source the best materials, but consumers often end up with defective shingles. Sometimes a fraction of the shingles in a package will be discolored. Often, it is not noticeable until you see them side-by-side with other shingles nailed to the roof. At this point, it is already too late. You would have to rip these shingles out and replace them with new shingles.
Many homeowners also choose the wrong color on accident. This normally happens because small sample colors look great. However, an entire roof is a different story. That color that looked good on paper may not look great on your house. The best way to avoid this mistake is to use an app to visualize the shingles. You should also take a look at them on installation day as well.
