About Maine Roofing
Roofing contractors provide a number of services ranging from simple jobs like clearing gutters and doing small repairs to building roofs for new or existing structures. They also perform necessary inspections for homeowners who are trying to sell a home or have concerns about their roof's integrity. Nearly 150 roofing contractors are currently doing business in the state of Maine.
Maine is usually divided into three regions, according to climate: the northern interior, the southern interior, and the coastal area. The northern interior is colder and drier, generally, than the other two regions. The coastal area is the most temperate in the state. All areas experience four distinct seasons in the year.
Common Roof Problems in Maine
Leaking is a common problem of roofs in Maine. This can be caused by a number of factors, but most commonly is the result of age. Over the years, roof components expand and contract as a result of outdoor temperature changes. This eventually leads to cracking and disintegration, which in turn leads to leaks.
Licensing in Maine
Roofing contractors, like all other general building contractors, do not need to be licensed to operate in Maine. In order to ensure that a contractor is qualified for a job, you may want to check their references. Other resources, like the Better Business Bureau and the National Roofing Contractors Association, are helpful for finding information about specific roofers in your area.
