At Barnett Construction and Roofing, we believe in doing the job the right way every single time. Our Krebs construction and roofing team have years of experience tackling every kind of project imaginable. Many of the projects we have taken on over the years have been created as the result of some kind of oversight by a previous construction and roofing crew.
If you want to have greater peace of mind the next time you have a Krebs construction and roofing team working on your home, here are a few common mistakes to be on the lookout for.
Not Enough Ventilation
When it comes to the longevity of your roof, ventilation is very important! Attic spaces that don’t have any kind of ventilation system in place are prone to becoming incredibly hot during the warm Summer months. This heat can wreak havoc on the lifespan of your shingles, causing them to deteriorate at a much faster rate. In addition to the damage to your shingles, the heat in your attic seeps it’s way through the rest of your home, pushing energy bills much higher due to the extra work needed to keep your home cool.
Ask the Krebs construction and roofing team working on your home about the ventilation method they plan to use, and if they will provide all of the materials necessary.
Novice Summer Contractors
When the warmer months come around, many roofing businesses take on additional workers to help them manage the added workload. The majority of the contractors they take on are young and inexperienced and prone to mistakes and mishaps on the worksite. Make sure you do thorough research about the Krebs construction and roofing company that you are considering working with. Go online and do your best to find reviews from other people that they have worked with. If all else fails, try asking friends and family members if they have any experience working with the company to find out if they have a respectable reputation. If the majority of customers that they have worked with are happy with their services, then chances are, you will be too.
If like many others, you view your home as an investment that you might someday want to make a profit on, then it is important that the roof on your home is well maintained and aesthetically pleasing. Curb appeal can have a major impact on someone’s decision as to whether or not to purchase a home.
All this said, there are seemingly endless shades of shingles that you can select from for your home’s roof. Because of the abundance of options available, our Krebs construction and roofing team know it can be easy to mismatch shingle colors that look similar in certain types of light but viewed from a distance are very different from one another.
As you have a Krebs construction and roofing team working on your home, make sure you take a step back every now and then to get a good view of the roof. Make sure there aren’t any dark or light patches that stand apart from the rest of the roof. If you see these patches, chances are there was a mix up in the type of shingles being used.
