About West Virginia Roofing
Homeowners in West Virginia may want to hire a roofing contractor to maintain, repair and replace the roofs on their homes. Regular maintenance by a contractor might include checking the roof to identify curling, shrinking, broken or missing shingles that may lead to leaks. Addressing these issues early will avoid costly repairs later.
Typical Climate In West Virginia
The West Virginia climate is humid and temperate with lower temperatures experienced along the Potomac River. In higher areas of the state, along the Allegheny Mountains, rainfall averages more than 50 inches but is substantially less in the lower sections. While the Allegheny Highland area can average 15 feet of snow, other parts of the state-- including Charleston--will only get 34 inches of snow on average.
Licensing In West Virginia
The state of West Virginia requires all construction contractors to be licensed, but the licensing board doesn't have a specific classification for roofers -- the roofing exams are under the General Construction classification. Contractors in West Virginia must pass business and law exams as well as a trade exam.
State Handling Of Complaints
Complaints against contractors must be filed through the state Attorney General's office. Staff will decide whether the matter can be resolved through voluntary mediation. If this doesn't resolve the issue and lawyers have determined that the company has violated the consumer protection law, the Attorney General's office may start an official investigation. If the law hasn't been violated, the state won't pursue the issue further, but may assist consumers in handling the complaints on their own.
