Signs of a Poorly Installed Roof


No matter what material your roof is made of, you can expect the roofer who installed it to do a good job. Unfortunately, not all Tampa roofing contractors have the skills to complete the job correctly. They lack the integrity and skill to care. Here are signs that your roof was not properly installed if you are concerned.

Roof Leakage

There are many reasons roofs can leak. However, new roofs should not leak unless there is storm damage or another logical reason. Most roof leaks are located in the valleys and along the flashing.

Missing or misaligned Shingles

Although a tropical storm force wind is capable of ripping off any roof, it’s not necessary for your roof to have missing or misaligned shingles due to a rainstorm. Tampa roofing companies that do not properly adjust their nail gun pressure frequently drive the nail too hard, leading to loosening of shingles.

Bubbling or Wavy Roof Surface

Roof shingles should be laid flat across the roof. Bad installation can lead to shingles looking wavy or with bubbles. It could be a sign of water trapped between the shingles or it could indicate that the shingles have not been properly attached.
