Most folks don’t think about reroofing when they start planning for home renovation projects. Yet, it is crucial as the roof is a critical system that keeps homes safe from the elements all year round. When it’s time to reroof, Pressure Point Roofing Eugene, LLC., can give you expert roofing advice.
You should consider these things.
The Whole System
Shingles are an important part of your roofing system – but only one part of it. Consider other components, such as the roof deck, underlayment type and starter type, ice and water shield, flashing, and other parts all make up the complete roofing system. They all need to be in proper condition.
Consider the Metal Valley
The valley is where two roof planes meet at a low section. It’s a place where lots of water can pool. The way it’s constructed can have a big impact on the effectiveness of the roof. The fewer joints valleys have, the better off you’ll be. Constructing them with metal and not shingles makes them more effective.
UV Resistant Pipe Flashing
You’re investing in a high-quality roof that you expect to last up to 50 years. Since that’s the case, don’t install flashing that will last only 10 to 15 years. Pipe flashing is a component that often fails and leaks long before the roof does. Ultraviolet (UV) resistant pipe flashing has a longer service life than rubber flashing.
Roof installation should have two covering warranties. One for manufacturing defects and another for workmanship issues. The workmanship warranty is only as good as the company that is giving it.
