Improper roof installation example

Every roofing manufacturer has strict and unique regulations regarding how their roofs are installed. This can include things like the number of nails per shingle, length of the nail, and more. How roofers perform the roof installation is incredibly important.

Unfortunately, many roofing contractors will install every roofing system the same way. They fail to adhere to manufacturer regulations. As a result, this voids your manufacturer’s warranty. Not only that, it also significantly decreases the lifespan of your roof.

Many roofers today STILL install architectural shingles the same way they installed 3-tab strip shingles. This leads to quicker roof failure as the shingles are not properly secured to the roof.

Installing shingles in the winter when they may have been stored at improper temperatures or installing them when they are wet can also lead to curling.

At Artisan, our shingles are stored in a temperature-controlled facility up until the morning of the installation when our supplier delivers the materials. Our crews are also certified installers for the top three shingle brands: CertainTeed, Owen’s Corning, and GAF. Consequently, with Artisan, you can have peace of mind that we will install your roof the right way.
