Different roofing materials use different methods of installation. This is especially true in a tile roofing system, which takes vast knowledge and precise workmanship in order for it to deliver the superior weather performance you expect. For this reason, you’ll want to work with experienced roofers like Safe Harbor Roofing & Siding who can provide satisfactory results.
Here are some of the tile roofing mistakes a good roof installer shouldn’t make:
1. Overlooking building codes: There are many local building codes that provide prescriptive requirements for the proper installation of tile roofing and its related components, such as the decking, underlayment and flashing. The professional team at Safe Harbor Roofing & Siding are deeply familiar with these regulations and will always comply with them. When you work with us for your tile roofing installation, you’re sure the work will be up to code.
2. Not adhering to manufacturer specifications: Tile roofing systems should be installed according to local codes and regulations, sure, but an excellent roofing company will also adhere to specific requirements set by the manufacturer. This not only ensures proper roof installation, but ensures the solid warranty coverage included with your new tile roof remains intact.
3. Installing the roof on a wet day: This is basic – the trained and experienced team at Safe Harbor Roofing & Siding knows the adhesive used in installing this type of roof will need ample time to dry. That’s why we first check with dependable weather forecasting to make sure the weather for the next few days – when we begin the roof installation – remains warm and dry.
4. Not taking proper ventilation into account: Tile roofing can naturally insulate your home from unwanted solar heat gain, but it will still need sufficient ventilation to keep the roof “cool”. Proper ventilation prevents heat and moisture buildup in the attic, which can lead to mold and rot when overlooked. Not only that, it can help reduce your cooling bills while eliminating the possibility of ice dam formation during the winter.
