Roof Repair
We had skylights leaking. Other contractors came over, looked at the outside and gave a quote for replacing or repairing the skylight--a generic fix. same thing for all skylights. Steve, however, of Roofer911 looked at the skylights from the inside, the outside, went on the roof, and used an infrared camera to locate any water inside the walls. He diagnosed two different problems for two different skylights and noted that one problem was being caused by a gutter that was not sloped properly which sent all the water down inside the siding of the house. NOT a generic fix! He was very thorough and explained everything that he was going to do and why it should be done to protect the structure of the house. His workers were efficient and professional and friendly. Great job all around!

Roof Leaks Covered by Insurance

insurance coverageRoof leaks covered by insurance are not the ones that worry residential property owners, so much. Water coming into your home through anything but the PVC and water mains that installed for that job is always worrisome. Holes in your roof from golf ball sized hale or the collapse of your roof from a hundred year old oak tree falling on it are situations that, although drastic, traumatic, and downright annoying, are hopefully covered by your insurance. That is a good thing - roofs carried off by unseasonable flooding can also qualify in this area of roof repair and leaks.

The not so good thing is the roof leak caused by bad roofing jobs. A lot of leaks and roof issues occur either from aging - a two hundred year old roof is a two hundred year old roof and timbers do eventually rot - or storms. Far too much of the water that gets into your house is because of faulty roofing materials and just plain bad work. Here is how you can tell if you have a bad roofing job before your ceiling collapses in on you.

Look up and see how they are navigating the roof. If they have nailed 2x4s to keep from falling off the roof, then you have a bunch of amateurs. Get them off your roof and tell them that they are no longer on your job. Every hole that you put in a roof is a potential leak. Shingles are laid so that the nails used to put your roof together and keep your roofing paper on are covered. Sticking a nail in that will rip on the way out when removing a 2x4 is the first sign that you have a problem. Do your best to stick to roof leaks covered by insurance.

Gutter Installation
Steve of "Roofer 911" is an outstanding person. His honesty, punctuality, knowledge, customer service and fairness is truly unique. His diagnosis was just perfect, but the degree of his certainty was astounding!! I called him for the roof leackage. He checked out and within five minutes said " I guarantee the leakage is 99.9% from your gutters. I'll repair your gutters, you wait for a couple of heavy rains and you'll see." He then repaired the gutters for a fraction of the cost of roof repair. He did this on a Sunday, since I was in a rush to deliver the house to my tenants. Later he proved to be 100% right. It has been four months since then and the leakage stopped there and then. No other roofer got even close to this. It was like everyone's eyes could only see the roof and not the gutters. He saved me time, money and hassel. I wish every contractor was like Steve. To me he acted like a symbol contractor.
