Hiring a Contractor in TN

Have you ever wondered, “Where do I start when I need to hire a contractor?”

One of your best resources is your state website.  Tennessee offers a free PDF specifically about Verifying and Selecting Home Contractors.  We have had quite a few nasty thunderstorms move through our area and with storms, come storm chasers.  TN.gov also has lists of contractors who have their licenses revoked, problem contractors, or are under disciplinary action. Additionally, you can search by contractor to find their license information (RD Herbert & Sons).

The Better Business Bureau of TN allows you to check out a business by category (roofing contractor) or by name (RD Herbert & Sons).  Business are not required to be accredited by the BBB, however they are still graded and complaints are tracked and listed.

Before hiring a roofing contractor, letting your fingers “walk” these sites on the internet will save you headaches down the road.

Buildings.com “The Top 10 Most Common Roof Problems”

Have you ever wondered about the most common roof problems? This list, compiled by Buildings.com, focus’ mostly on built-up roofs (BUR).

  1. Roof leaks and moisture
  2. Blow-offs, tenting, reduced wind uplift resistance, and billowing
  3. Poor installation and unsatisfactory workmanship
  4. Lack of maintenance
  5. Ponding water
  6. Punctures and the addition of penetrations post-installation
  7. Safety
  8. Improper repairs
  9. Shrinkage
  10. Blistering

Some of these seem obvious, when water is dripping into your building, there is a problem.  However, ponding water, shrinkage or blistering are not something that can be seen from the ground.  Having a proper and ongoing maintenance plan can catch these problems prior to a big storm saving building owners money.

Have you experienced any of these problems at your home or business? Give Matt Bogosian (615-627-0207) a call for all your roof maintenance and repairs.
