Replacing your roof is a significant investment and an essential part of maintaining your home’s structural integrity. It’s important to start the project off right and there are several common mistakes that homeowners can make during the roof replacement process. Avoiding these mistakes can help ensure a successful and long-lasting roof replacement. 

  • Choosing the Wrong Contractor 

Hiring an inexperienced or unqualified contractor can lead to problems such as poor workmanship and potential problems down the road. 

  • Opting for the Cheapest Option

While cost is an important factor, choosing the cheapest roofing contractor may result in subpar quality. Investing in a contractor that will provide long-term durability is a must. 

  • Not Addressing Underlying Issues  

Before installing a new roof, it’s essential to address any underlying issues such as rotten wood, structural damage, and more. Ignoring these issues can compromise the new roof’s integrity. 

  • Incorrect Installation of Flashing

Flashing is an essential part of preventing leaks around chimneys, skylights, vents, and other roof penetrations. Improperly installing flashing can lead to damage.
