1. What is one thing you would like building owners to know about (making repairs to) their roof?
Have your roofs inspected; whether it’s on a monthly, every 6 months or yearly basis, to find any problems that need to be addressed which in return could save you and your roof from costly repairs.

2. What’s the most common problem you see?
People doing a temporary fix just trying to get by. In most cases, the longer you wait, the more damage you will find on your roofs.

Any and all rotten wood decking including your floor joist or trusses.

A lesson I learned from co-worker: Plug in an extra hand welder during winter months to warm your hands and face with!
