The Bottom Line: Roofing Repairs
ROTTERDAM -- Springtime roof repairs have already taken hold in the Capital Region.
The team at Rotterdam-based Pinnacle Roofing is hard at work getting the job done. But owner Chris LaVallee says he's heard from plenty of customers dealing with other roofers, who have not.
"Didn't get the work done properly, didn't get the work done on time, paid the guy and the guy disappeared," LaVallee says.
So how do you get the work done, and done well?
LaVallee tells CBS 6's Dori Marlin, you should know the codes - adding there are different codes, in different areas.
"Especially in the Northeast, you want to make sure you're getting the proper underlayments underneath the shingles that you're going to use," he explains. "Like some water shield is what you'll hear alot from the contractor, and typically it's six feet you need on your roof edges."
Also, ask a roofer about the type of shingle they use. LaVallee says there are lots of lesser manufacturers out there
