Roofing, despite beliefs to the contrary, is a complex project that requires skill, dedication, and an uncompromising attention to detail. Even the smallest oversight can result in roof that is not “perfect.”

For example, ALL manufacturers have a set requirement for how their roofing material MUST be installed. If a roofer fails to follow those requirements and the roof fails, your warranty is useless. Take this one home we had to go to in order to repair what someone else had done.

In short, the manufacturer required that the underlayment had to be nailed (not stapled):

“Secure underlayment with 3/4" galvanized roofing nails at 9" on center along all laps and 12" on center down the center.”

One way that other roofers cut corners is to increase the spacing and sometimes even the type of nail used… it saves them money on labor and materials.

Then there was the issue of how many nails need to be used per shingle and how the shingles should be laid out and spaced. Again, corners were cut in spacing and the number of nails used was less than the requirement.

End result: an imperfect roof that failed under heavy Maryland wind and rain. Sadly, the homeowner had to pay TWICE for her roof because the faulty installation voided her warranty.

But just how bad is the problem? In a recent investigative bulletin published by Clemson University, in partnership with the National Roofing Contractors Association, the problem is a lot more widespread than originally thought:

Maintaining a watertight roofing system is critical to preventing damage in high wind and heavy rain events [or snow]… The most common roofing material for houses in many areas of the country is the “three-tab” asphalt shingle. Even though winds [during storms] were well below expected design speeds, shingle damage was widespread and frequently severe, resulting in interior water damage.

Field investigations concluded that the damage was caused by inadequate workmanship, standards and design. Some shingles were not installed properly, according to the manufacturers’ recommendations. For example, often shingles were attached with too few and/or improperly positioned nails.

Bottom Line: At Energy Wizard if the manufacturer says to use five nails then we are going to use five nails…PERIOD; We install all of our roofs to meet or exceed the manufacturers requirements. It is one of the reasons why we are one of only a few contractors in all of Maryland that can offer a 20 year IRON CLAD warranty backed by our roof shingle manufacturer.

At Energy Wizard, we strive to be one of the best residential roofer in the industry.

Let us help you with all of your roofing projects. We will build you a roofing system that works best for you, your home, and your wallet.
