Hiring The Wrong Contractor
When people think of roof repairs or siding repairs they tend to picture a small patch job or quick fix. Repairs come in all sizes and are necessary for a variety of reasons.
Featured is a recent job done by ABC Roofing Company Inc. It's the perfect example of how hiring the wrong contractor can cost you.
Repairs required for this home include the following:
* Removal of old lap siding
* Removal of all rotten wood
* Removal of window unit and interior trim
* Replace window
* Install new plywood
* Apply sufficient flashing
* Replace Siding
* Install new interior trim and repair interior drywall
The issue with this home was a lack of flashing. When the siding was originally installed, proper flashing was not applied, allowing water to penetrate the wood around the perimeter of the window. As you can see, overlooking this small yet important step caused a great deal of damage.
Mistakes happen with any company but all too often many crews are not properly trained or cut corners to get the job done quickly and cheap. It's vital that you hire a contractor who values quality and has knowledgable crews. In doing so, you can ensure you're getting the best value by trained staff to avoid these costly mistakes.
