The Roof Doctor wants to make you aware of common roofing mistakes that you can look out for, mistakes that we will never make, but often have to fix. Here are 3 very common roofing mistakes that you can easily avoid by hiring a good roofer like The Roof Doctor.
1. Reusing Old Materials- This is something we see often and want to help you avoid. It is common for us to look at a roof and see 2-3 layers of old shingles because the previous roofers put the new shingles over the old ones. In the long run, removal of old layers will cost you more money. We want to give you a quality roof, so we will be sure to remove the old materials and start fresh.
We are sure you hear the term “go green” quite often these days. Here at The Roof Doctor, we are taking steps to go green! We’ve just began to eliminate paper in the office, so in light of this decision we decided to educate you on green roofing!
What is a Green Roof?
There are two types of green roofs, intensive and extensive. Intensive green roofs hold more weight (80-150 lbs per square foot), therefore they can support an entire rooftop garden, with trees, grass, flowers, shrubs, and so on. Extensive green roofs hold less weight (15-50 lbs per square foot), and generally only consist of grass or ground cover, therefore requiring less maintenance.
