Roofing replacement will require significant expenditures, so you’ll want to make sure you’re hiring the right people for a successful project. When looking for a roofing contractor, make sure that they have the necessary experience and training to help them avoid these mistakes.

Roofing Errors

Mismatched Shingles

Non-professional roofers tend to get their supplies from more than one manufacturer. This may result in a roof of uneven quality and appearance. As an Owens Corning® Platinum Preferred contractor, however, we get all our roofing supplies from the brand itself. This means that the look and performance of your roof will stay consistent.

Installing New Roof Over an Old Roof

Covering an old roof with a new one can put your home’s overall structure at risk. While there are exceptional cases, it’s generally not recommended as the weight of the old roof can compromise the performance of the new one. When you hire us to install your new roofing, however, we’ll implement the proper safety installation practices so that your home stays safe.

Poor Roof Installation

Every roofing manufacturer provides installation instructions for different kinds of roofing for long-lasting performance. Even the slightest difference in the number of nails used per shingle can have adverse effects on the entire roofing system. At Tittle Brothers Construction, we are trained to follow manufacturer instructions to the letter so that your roof will perform as it should.

Poor Attic Ventilation

Adequate attic ventilation helps prolong your roofing system’s service life. Without it, the area can suffer from too much heat and moisture, which can wear down your shingles fast and lead to an increase in energy costs. Rest assured that a complete roofing system from Owens Corning includes proper attic ventilation to get rid of excessive heat and moisture.

When you hire Tittle Brothers Construction, we’ll exercise diligence to avoid these roofing errors and more. We serve Ann Arbor, MI, and other areas in Michigan. Call us today at (877) 228-5658 to learn more about our roofing solutions.
