Video: Danger Signals of an Improperly Installed Roof

Installed Roof

Working with the right contractor is important because your roof’s performance and life span depends on proper installation. Improper installation can lead to several problems including shingle damage, leaks, and stains on your interior. Arry’s Roofing, one of the most experienced Dunedin, FL, roofers, discusses the key danger signals of a poorly installed roof:

  • Roof Leaks – Leaking is a typical sign of a failing roof system. You can usually see this issue in your attic after a heavy rain. Common causes include inadequate underlayment, deteriorated flashing, or ice dams. Arry’s Roofing can fix your roof leaks by determining its source and recommending the proper solution.

  • Stains on Your Walls and Ceilings – This is also another sign of faulty shingle underlayment or ice dams. Poor ventilation can also cause excessive moisture and stains. If you leave stains unattended, these can lead to mold growth and poor indoor air quality. As a specialist in roofing in Palm Harbor, we can diagnose your roofing system and fix this problem.

  • Peeling or Blistering Interior or Exterior Paint – You don’t have to get up on your roof or check your attic to see signs of a failing roof system. If you see your blisters on your painted siding or wall, your home most likely has poor attic ventilation. A problem with the soffit or ridge vent can lead to excessive temperature or high humidity. We’ll examine your roof’s ventilation and prevent this from happening again.

  • Roof Shingle, Sheathing, or Siding Decay – Excess moisture can also lead to siding, shingles, or sheathing deterioration. You can see this sign when moisture builds up underneath your roof deck. A vapor barrier between your insulation and the inside of your home can combat this problem and reduce the amount of moisture going into a wall.
