Not All "Reputable Roofing Contractors" Are The Same In The Toledo, Ohio Area (or anywhere)
It's amazing how many roofs we tear off every year in Toledo and surrounding areas that our customers say were put on by "reputable contractors" only to be thrown in the dumpster weeks after having the roof installed. Many of the big-name roofing companies in the Toledo area are not what we would call "reputable" due to the way they handle thier businesses and more importantly, their customers, unbeknownst to them.
The problem with a vast majority of the roofing contractors in Toledo and surrounding areas is that they do not do their own work. They use sub-crews. Sub-crews are third-party groups of workers that do jobs for these larger companies. The problem is that these sub-crews are not properly trained, and more often than not, ruin your roof from day one. Not only do they not install the roof properly, but that improper installation voids your roof's warranty from day one as well.
Below is a gallery of images all FROM THE SAME JOB that we just tore off in the winter of 2016 that was installed by one of these "reputable contractors" and replaced by us THREE WEEKS later.
Can you afford to chance to have to replace your roof twice in the same month to save a little money? Sadly many of these roofs are done by companies their neighbors recommended and when our customers went after that "reputable contractor" to get the roof replaced again they couldn't get any money out of them. It really is sickening.... Unfortunately in these circumstances, the customer has to buy the roof again.
Improper Roof Installation By A Large Toledo Area Roofing Contractor We Had To Replace Three Weeks After Installation
This image shows how the installer nailed so low that water is able to run over from the seem between the two shingles and into the nail hold causing a leak
Again this shows the shingles not being properly installed. Without proper nailing your shingles will work loose and cause leaks.
The soil stack boot in this picture you can see was installed damaged so they tried to hold it down with more nails causing more hold for water to leak into.
As you can see in this image water running down the shingles behind the chimney dup under the rest of the roof. Also not properly flashed.
Obviously this wood should have been replaced when the new roof was installed.
Shingles nailed so low the nail holes are exposed to water.
In this image you can see where water had been leaking on to the bay sheet due to improperly installed shingles.
Counter flashing from under siding nailed through roof causing leaks at each nail.
Flashing was re-used in this area of the roof. Roof installed over the top of the flashing as well, not properly flashed.
Numerous sheets of plywood hard to be replaced on this job.
This is a sheet of plywood we pulled up that has mold growing all over it from the leaky roof.
This image shows how the installer shingled from both directions at once and was not sure what to do once they end up with a small gap between the two runs. They decided just to shove a small piece of shingle in to cover the gap...
Again no flashing at the siding walls. Any flashing this job did have was old and not installed properly.
This is a picture of the old vent hole that was just covered up by shingles causing the roof to slowly melt into the hole and leak like crazy.
Again you can see here they left the old flashing in place. You can also see that this area was leaking pretty badly.
Clearly this was bad long before the three week old roof was installed and should have been replaced.
You can see this old flashing was also not bent up under the siding nearly as far as it should have been.
You can see here not only did they not installed the vent from end to end like they should have, they didn't even bother to cut the top of the roof open so it actually vents.
In this image you can see how they nailed right in the seem where the shingles come together causing leaks at every single shingle seem.
Overlapping shingles is not correct.
Flashing is all under the new roof.
Soil Stack boot dumps under shingles.
No iceguard was used nor a starter row of shingles. Shingles edge just flapped in the wind since it was not sealed down.
