Typical Climate in Mississippi
Mississippi generally has a uniform climate throughout the state with long, warm, humid summers and comparatively brief winters. There is more rainfall in the south than in the north; snowfall occurs mainly in the north, though not on a large scale. Hurricanes can be a significant weather hazard in Mississippi throughout summer and most of autumn as Mississippi lies on the Gulf of Mexico.
Common Roofing Problems in Mississippi
Roofs in Mississippi are particularly vulnerable during the hurricane season in the summer months when strong winds buffet the gulf region. Shingles are made with different wind ratings; check with your roofing contractor about what you are getting. Beyond hurricanes, roofs in Mississippi need to be able to withstand humidity and keep interiors cool during the hot conditions that occur throughout most of the year.
Licensing in Mississippi
In Mississippi, a license is required to perform any kind of construction project. To qualify for residential projects, a contractor needs the Mississippi Roofing, Sheet Metal, and Siding Contractor license. The State reserves the right to determine a person's ability to apply for a license subject to a credit and background check. In addition, candidates need also to take and pass the Business and Law Management exam.
Legal Issues and Complaints
In case of shoddy workmanship, homeowners may claim compensation by filing a lawsuit against the roofing contractor. First, however, it is recommended that the owner notify the contractor of the issue and request they rectify the issue before beginning legal proceedings. If the contractor fails to take care of the matter in a satisfactory fashion, legal action is always an option.
