This is a good reason why you need to hire people who really know and care about roofing products and procedures. We recently had to tear-off a complete (fairly new) roof that had extensive wind damage. The shingles were a great product and shouldn’t have blown off. The original installers didn’t know (or possibly, didn't care about) what they were doing. The shingles were improperly installed. The nails were nailed at the very top of the shingle instead of the middle area of the nail strip. And, to make matters worse, the nails were overdriven so badly because of overpressure on the compressor, that this roof never had a chance.
How do you insure that this doesn't happen on your roof?
A couple questions to ask:
-Who will be installing the shingles?
-What is their experience?
-Are the nails the correct length for the shingle type?
-Is speed/completion valued more so than quality?
