If you haven’t read Professional Roofer’s last riveting blog post about the most mysterious aspect of your roof (the soffit and fascia), we encourage you to go back and find it – we guarantee you’ll learn something! For our current blog series, we are writing about all the unique and interesting components of your roof, and the potential hazards or problems that might arise with them down the line. This time, we decided to discuss one of the better-known aspects of your roof: your eavestroughs and downpipes!
If you’re a new homeowner, or even if you’re not, you may not know all the technical terms for the components that make up your roof. And more importantly, if you don’t know what bits and pieces are there, you also won’t know what to look for when something goes wrong. For this reason, we have decided our next Professional Roofers blog series will describe the parts that make up your roof and the common problems associated with each. For our first post, we are going to kick things off with a couple of terms that seem to be known the least amongst homeowners we meet: ‘soffit and fascia’.
Over our past few blog posts we at Professional Roofers believe we’ve talked you through 90% of what you need to know regarding hiring a quality roofer. By now, you should be able to pick out a true professional roofing company and create a solid contract that ensures you receive the services you pay for; however, there is one final detail that we want to discuss with you before we close this topic. In hiring a roofing contractor, as well as for any business dealing, you need to know your rights. In the event that something doesn’t quite go as planned, or you find out that you have chosen the wrong roofing company, you need to know what you can and cannot do – what the government protects you from, and what it does not.
