About Virginia Roofing
Virginia's milder climate may not cause as many snow and ice problems as seen in neighboring states, but a waterproof covering remains important to protect homes from external damage. Homeowners may want to partner with a roofer to ensure preventative maintenance is carried out early in order to save time and money.
Virginia has a mild, humid coastal climate with temperatures increasingly cooler as you move west and into higher altitudes. In Richmond, the state capital, temperatures range from just above freezing (36 degrees) in January to the high 70s in July. Precipitation is fairly consistent, with Richmond averaging around 44 inches a year and Norfolk a few inches more. Snowfall is also lighter in Norfolk (8 inches) compared to Richmond's 15 inches.
Virginia Licensing Of Roofing Contractors
The state of Virginia requires contractors to have one of three types of licenses, depending on the value of the contracts they fulfill. To get a license, one employee or manager of the company must pass an exam. Virginia offers a website to verify whether a contractor is licensed by the state, or consumers may call (804) 367-8511.
Legal Issues And Complaints
Consumer complaints should be addressed to the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, Compliance and Investigations Division. Its mission is "to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public by licensing qualified individuals and businesses and enforcing standards of professional conduct for professions and occupations as designated by statute." The department provides a series of brochures on its website including: What You Should Know Before Hiring A Contractor, What Seniors Should Know Before Hiring a Contractor and Ten Tips for Making Sure a Contractor Measures Up.
