One Shortcut Can Create a Huge Headache

This simple mistake on my roof repair had serious consequences. It just goes to show the importance of being able to trust a contractor.

I put a new roof on my home a few years ago and I thought I had hired a contractor that was going to do a great job. For the most part, they did. However, one person made a crucial mistake that is causing some big headaches now.

As you can see in the video above, somebody got lazy and didn’t mention that the flashing on the roof was about two inches short from the end of the trimboard. What happened is that this created a hole where water could freely move through. Now the roof, roof sheathing, and the rafter beneath it are rotted.

This contractor’s laziness had bad consequences.

What we have to do now is get back in there and replace everything just because one person didn’t do their job. We don’t want this to happen to you.

If you have any questions about what you should be doing when it comes to making improvements on your home, give us a call. We can recommend a number of contractors that we know will not cut corners like the one who replaced my roof did. I look forward to hearing from you.
