About Kansas Roofing
There's no place like a home with a quality roof in Kansas. The famous tornado in The Wizard of Oz, and other harsh weather conditions in Kansas, means that homeowners must take extra care in selecting and maintaining a roof.
Residents of Kansas experience heavy snowfall in the winter months and high winds or tornados in the spring and summer months. Precipitation ranges from about 30 inches in the wettest parts of the state to 16 inches in the west. Snowfall ranges from 36 inches in the northwest, to 11 inches in the southeast. Kansas lays claim to being the windiest city in the United States, with an average wind speed of 14 mph. In all seasons, the climate in Kansas stands as a significant variable in maximizing the longevity of any roof.
Leaking is one of the most common problems homeowners in Kansas encounter. Usually, leaks are first detected inside the house through the appearance of moisture, peeling paint or wallpaper, and discoloring of walls and ceilings. Cupped, torn or curled shingles are the most usual culprits behind a leaky roof. If you suspect you have a leak, consult a roofing contractor to assess and advise on appropriate repairs.
The State of Kansas does not license construction professionals at the state level, with the exception of those conducting asbestos abatement and water well drilling. Regulations relating to general construction, including roofing contractors, vary within each city and county.
How to Avoid Hiring a Bad Contractor
Because construction licensing is not regulated on a state level, homeowners must take extra precaution when hiring a roofing contractor. Before contracting work, contact your city's inspection division to obtain information on locally licensed workers. In addition, check that the professionals you consider do not have negative activities reported through the Better Business Bureau. It is always wise to obtain several bids before securing a contract, as well as references from previous clients. Call and speak with your contractor's references to verify that the work was completed as contracted with good results.
