Why Use A BBB Accredited Roofer?

Choosing a roofer is the very important first step of the roof replacement process. It is always strongly recommended by insurance companies to use a professional and local roofer who has been in business for awhile. They should have a good reputation and references. Their BBB rating should be an A+ at minimum. The BBB explains:

“BBB ratings represent the BBB’s opinion of how the business is likely to interact with its customers. The BBB rating is based on information BBB is able to obtain about the business, including complaints received from the public. BBB seeks and uses information directly from businesses and from public data sources.

BBB assigns ratings from A+ (highest) to F (lowest). In some cases, BBB will not rate the business (indicated by an NR, or “No Rating”) for reasons that include insufficient information about a business or ongoing review/update of the business’s file.

BBB Business Profiles generally explain the most significant factors that raise or lower a business’s rating.

BBB ratings are not a guarantee of a business’s reliability or performance.  BBB recommends that consumers consider a business’s BBB rating in addition to all other available information about the business.”

Do I have a rotting roof?

Roofs can most definitely collect moisture and begin to rot. It can depend on the type of roof, your climate and installation. This is one of the many reasons why roof inspections are imperative.
We live in a humid region. Your roof could be holding moisture. There are ways to make sure your home is properly ventilated. Sometimes homes are not adequately ventilated, and other times there is too much!
You also want to check your radiant barriers. Poor installation can cause too much moisture. Insulation can also be the problem. Wet insulation is never a good thing.
rot - Do I have a rotting roof?
HomeAdvisor suggests “If you are experiencing moisture accumulation in your attic that has caused roof rot or other moisture associated problems, it’s important that you talk to a home inspector, roofing contractor, or general contractor, in order to assess damage, identify the source of your problem, and get everything back up to code. If your roof has experienced significant rot you may be in for some major repairs, including repairing or replacing the roof trusses, decking, and roofing material. Since it’s unlikely your radiant barriers caused your problem, this is a good time to address the source of your moisture problem as well (most likely poor ventilation). Installing gable vents, ridge vents, soffit vents, and attic fans are all effective strategies in eliminating poor attic ventilation. Remember, your roof is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Anything short of a roof in excellent condition isn’t worth risking in the long run.”
