A home’s roof is made up of many parts, all of which can cause problems if not installed or maintained properly. Here’s a look at some basic features and what can go wonky with the wrong roofing contractor.
The material around pipes, vents or other protrusions is a prime spot for damage or water leaks.
Gutters are susceptible to water buildup and ice damming.
The front board along your roof line is easily damaged by moisture.
Small animals and insects are attracted to the wood beneath the roof overhang, so pay close attention to cracks, holes and rotting.
