Hiring an inexperienced roofing contractor could lead to mistakes that only roofers without much
experience would make. For example:

Installing Your New Shingles Over the Old Ones

A professional Houston roofing contractor will know exactly which attic ventilation system your roof needs and how to properly install it. The attic ventilation is just as important as the shingles, if not more. The purpose of attic ventilation is to create the proper in and out airflow for your attic. If you don't have attic ventilation or you have an attic ventilation system that doesn't work properly, it will cause your shingles to curl and wear out much sooner than they would otherwise. It could also ruin your attic's insulation and significantly increase your monthly energy bills.

Incorrectly Installed or Omitted Attic Ventilation

Installing an additional layer of shingles over the old roof shingles might save you money; however, this practice is illegal in some places. Additionally, adding another layer of shingles adds weight to your roof and walls. Your roof can only withstand a certain amount of PSI (pounds per square inch), so over time, that extra weight could damage your decking, walls, and the other components of your roof as well. The cost of replacing an entire roof versus just the shingles is extremely expensive, not to mention thedamage any extra weight could do to your walls.

Not Pulling a Permit

Some contractors try to save money and take shortcuts by not getting a permit before replacing your roof. Almost every jurisdiction requires a permit before replacing a roof. If your contractor didn't pull a permit to replace your roof, they are not the ones responsible—the homeowner is. This could cost you big. You could be forced to pay hefty fines, the county could make you remove your new roof and have a new permitted one installed. And, your homeowner's insurance company generally will not insure your roof and possibly deny other claims that in their opinion are related.

These are just a few of the ways inexperienced roofing contractors in Houston, Texas could cause serious problems for a homeowner.
