🏠Every structure with a roof will someday need a new roof.
Why it matters: Failing to plan for a re-roof, can cost you money or quality or both.
- Architects, builders and remodelers often fail to design or install with re-roofing in mind.
🔎 Zooming In: Some poor designs we see when re-roofing:
❌ A pergola with beams attached to the main house —> hard to seal from leaks
❌ 2nd story edition that creates a dead valley —> area that holds water
❌ A new roof vent with too many nails or screws and too much caulk —> can the vent be reused without damaging it?
For your Smart Homeowner list
✅ Your job is to ask the right questions.
Of your builder, remodeler, or handyman—>
❓Will that area shed water well?
❓How will a roofer re-roof that section?
P.S. Trust your gut and never be afraid to ask your contractor hard questions. The good ones embrace that.
