The state's Better Business Bureau noted that in Central Ohio alone, it logged more than 52,000 questions from consumers about roofing contractors. Note these were inquiries as to their records, not complaints. But this figure places inquiries for roofers--of which there are more than 200 contractors in Central Ohio alone--as the top inquiry for the regional bureau.

Unusual Roofs In Ohio
The state's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a roughly 160-foot tower attached to a triangular glass roof/structure overlooking Lake Erie as part of Cleveland's North Coast Harbor. Architect I.M. Pei used dramatic angular planes and cantilevered spaces in an attempt to convey music's dynamic nature. In Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is one of the most recognizable buildings in the state, if not the States. From the circular museum's roof protrudes a giant white half-football dome, with gold lines representing the ball's stitching.
