So, your roof isn’t looking so great: who do you call? Although you may be tempted to contact the general contractor that remodeled your kitchen or bathroom, you may want to think twice. Chances are, they’re not a roofing specialist.
To put it another way, you wouldn’t see your dentist for a root canal. You need to see an endodontist – a root canal specialist. If your child broke his leg and needed a cast, his primary doctor wouldn’t be able to help. Your son would go see an orthopedic technician.
When your house needs a new roof, a roofing specialist is your best bet.
Case in point: a friend recently told me her ‘roof disaster’ story. She had paid a general contractor twice to install a new roof. Unbeknownst to the client on both occasions, the contractor put a new roof on without inspecting what was underneath. So, the new roof turned out to be a temporary fix, because the underlying problem (rotted wood) wasn’t addressed. Since the contractor wasn’t a roofing specialist, he didn’t know all of the potentially problematic issues to look for. If the client had hired a roofing specialist from the start, the outcome would have had a better chance of success the first time.
