One class covered ten common residential roofing errors. We feel like it is important for the homeowner to understand what these errors are, and that Roof, Rinse & Run knows about and addresses these issues. (1) Installing Shingles on Low-Slope Roofs. When a roof’s pitch is 2:12 or lower, shingles simply can’t function right. (2) Neglecting to Install Drip Edge. While drip edge is only “required” on the eaves of a home, it is still recommended on the rakes as well, and Roof, Rinse & Run always requires its use at both places. Keep insects & squirrels out of the attic.Prevent wind-driven rain from entering under the edge of the roof.Provide a “drip point” for water to drip off of (which helps prevent fascia rot).Keep shingles from “sagging” as they extend past the edge of the roof.
