Roof Leak in Apex-Cary NC

A homeowner in the Apex- Cary area of Wake County called the other day regarding a roof leak. The homeowner said his roof has been leaking since he replaced it a year ago. He said he hired a roofing contractor from Raleigh to replace his roof. The homeowner said he called the roofing contractor several times regarding the leak but the roofer would not return his calls. So he called Cole Roofing & Construction. Once we arrived the homeowner pointed out the locations of the leaks, there were 3 leaks. Once on the roof the reason for the leaks were obvious. The roofing contractor had used the wrong material for the starter course and the water was entering the roof between the tabs of the first row of shingles. We informed the homeowner of the reason for the leak and made the repairs. It was very little the homeowner could have done to make certain the roofer used the correct material for the starter course. The house was two stories and the owner could not get on the roof to check the work. Like most homeowners he didn’t know anything about a starter course . This underscores the importance of hiring a roofing contractor with a good reputation not only for installing roofs but also for returning your calls and standing behind their work. If you are in the Apex-Cary area of Wake county or anywhere in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill give us a call for your roofing and home improvement needs. Cole Roofing & Construction has a 40 year history of doing the right thing.
