Yesterday I posted about a roof I had inspected here in Connecticut that had been assaulted by a fool with a power washer. What I did not discuss was the additional damage done by another contractor over this past winter.
Connecticut experienced a record setting snowfall over the course of the 2010 - 2011 winter. January was the snowiest on record. Roof collapses were occurring with alarming regularity. As a result roof clearing became an in demand business as frighten folks sought relief from snow anxiety. As what usually happens when a huge and unexpected demand for a service arises, the hacks and charlatans come out of the wood work to take advantage.
My client had obviously hired someone to clear his roof. He had ice damming related leaks and was in a bind.
I believe he hired the firm of Larry, Curly and Moe.
I have inspected a fair number of roofs this late winter. I have seen the occasional scraps and gouges from roof clearing, but have not happened across any roof that has been so brutally beaten.
The marks in the first photo are clearly from someone using a shovel or spade and chopping at the snow or ice. The broken shingles in the second photo are from shoveling up the roof, catching the blade under the shingle.
It never ceases to amaze me how some "companies" perform their "services". With this particular roof insult has now been added to injury.
