The Roofing Contractor Who vanishes

Before you sign the contract and write the check, it’s important to research the contractor. For such an important job, you want a professional and reliable contractor.
Worst Nightmare: Leaking Roof
A dripping roof can make your home sound scary. A leaky roof is something that you shouldn’t ignore, no matter how small or large. A leaky roof can lead to disastrous consequences such as:
- Wood-Decay Fungi
- Mold Growth
- Ruined belongings (Electronics and furniture, etc.
- Loss of Insulation
- And more
Wind and heavy rain can cause roof damage, causing shingles to fall off or even to be broken. Although it may seem like a minor problem, this can lead to serious problems if not dealt with immediately.
- Wood Rot
- Water Ruining Roofs
- Mold in Your Home
- Structural damage
Roofs that are damaged or neglected are an invitation for rodents and other insects. These pests will build a nest under loose shingles and crawl into your attic to chew wires and piping. These unwanted guests can cause damage to your roof or your home and can also expose you to other dangers like fires, water leaks, and mold.
Gutters are often not something homeowners think about. They can be quite a nuisance in the fall. Over time, leaves and other debris could build up in your gutters. You could quickly find yourself in a situation where your roof is not being maintained. If the gutters become blocked, water can sit on top of your roof as it has no other place to go. This will cause roof leakage if it is too heavy to lift.
