When hiring a roofing contractor, you will want to make sure that whoever you are hiring knows the codes for your city, and abides by them, before replacing your roof. Getting in trouble with the city inspector is the last thing that you want to have happen. Here are some of the codes that your contractor should know.
- How they need to deal with existing roof layers.
- Underlayment codes
- Flashing requirements
- Type and length of fasteners to use for code.
- Attic ventilation
- Permits & Inspections required
Hiring a well qualified roofing contractor will save you headaches down the road.
