My Roof Troubles
Photos started in 2000
Gary Snowden did the estimate.
He subcontracted the job to a crew out of Hampton. The lead man's name was Mr. Lyons.
They removed my old roof and half of the felt. They did not install new felt over the bare wood before installing the shingles. They said with architectural shingles it was not needed.
They were contracted to also install a roof vent along the ridge of my roof. They used hatchets and chopped out a space at the peak for the vent. I will post photos of the mess they left in my
attic. I do not believe the area chopped out is as wide as the specifications of the ridge vent call for.
The day after they completed the installation it rained and my carport roof leaked bad in several places. see photos below. I had to stop payment on my first check because they would not answer my
calls and I never would have paid them at all if I knew how bad they are at their job.
They replaced all the shingles over the carport after the original install because they said they should have installed a heavy "ice guard" felt first
They replaced the shingles over the carport again after it leaked because the installers forgot to remove the protective plastic film from the sticky side of the ice guard.
They replaced the shingles over the roof above the carport again after it leaked because they said it was installed with too much "lip" at the main roof causing it to leak again.
They replaced the seal around my chimney on the roof with a material they had to heat with a torch to seal it. (SEE NEXT ITEM!)
Then my dining room ceiling fell in while it was raining. It was leaking around the chimney that time. I covered the roof as much as I could while it was raining with a large blue tarp. It did not
They refused to repair the roof again or the ceiling. Gary Snowden told me to "SUE HIM". I could not afford to hire a lawyer, so I turned it in to my home owners insurance with Farm Bureau and they
sent a crew from Insurance Restoration Services to replace a sheet of drywall and paint my ceiling. I calked the chimney myself and it has remained leak free.
I would not recommend Snowden's Siding Roofing & Window Co to roof a doghouse.
