Signs of a failing roof

Rotted deck boards of Sherri Watkins’ roof.

Once we started Sherri’s roofing project we were given surprises of our own! We discovered her roof was covered wGAF Timberline HD Roofing New Bedford, MAith three layers of shingles (building code only permits 2 layers) and a jumbo jet’s worth of rotted deck boards! Yikes! This is one of the many reasons why we encourage homeowners to only do business with a certified, insured, and licensed roofing contractor. People often focus on price alone and overlook contractor credentials, experience, warranties, and installation methods. This typically leads to more costs down the road. Improperly installed roofs often fail within a short period of time leaving homeowners with a pile of problems and their “contractor” long gone. Fortunately for Sherri, her new GAF Timberline HD roofing system, featured here in Weathered Wood, was installed by Care Free Homes, a GAF MasterElite contractor!  Her new roof is finally ready to take on the harsh, New England weather!

We are happy to have Sherri as a new customer and she’s happy to be part of our Care Free family! She even shared her experience during a recent radio interview! Watch the video filmed in the WBSM studio below!
