to Legally Protect Yourself,
Why You Never Hear About Them,
And The Consequences of Ignoring Them.
Wauwatosa homeowner, Meg, was looking for a contractor to replace her nearly 30-year-old roof. It was leaking intermittently for multiple years to the point where they had removed sections of drywall to allow it to dry and breathe.
Mike and Maryanne’s home was looking tired. The shakes were falling, cracking and dirty. Without the equipment needed to repair and clean the siding themselves, the duo set out to find a contractor who could. The problem was finding a company who would work with what existed on the house, rather than push to replace the old with completely new siding, since the majority of the cedar shakes truly just needed to be restored to its former glory.
The FAA Building at Mitchell International Airport was to install new, larger, air conditioning units on their roof. Due to the size of the new units, the roof needed additional support installed while keeping the integrity of the TPO roofing system.
Racine homeowners, Pam and Pete, were in need of a full siding replacement as their home’s cedar siding was extremely deteriorated. Furthermore, the back addition had fiberboard siding that was also failing. They wanted to update their exterior with new siding that was low maintenance and did not require painting.
Waukesha homeowner, Gerry, had a leaking chimney and needed the problem permanently fixed. The leak was a recurring problem. Over the years, several contractors came to repair the leak, but none of them were successful at completely stopping the leak.
Percy and Vonn purchased their Milwaukee home a couple years ago: “One of the reasons we purchased our home just two years ago was because the asphalt shingle roof had just been replaced. (Important note: Guardian did NOT install the roof at the property). The realtor used this as a selling point. We hired Guardian right after purchasing our home to replace the small flat rubber roof on the breezeway of our home last year with a TPO system. That project went off without a hitch. However, the real trouble came this past winter, when we arrived home from work and found a large portion of our asphalt roof gone. We called the Guardian office and they responded as if it was a 911 emergency.”
Marissa had been working on an interior remodeling project when her roof began to leak unexpectedly. Her roof was old, buckling, and was leaking around the skylights. As a result of the leak, she had to place the remodeling project temporarily on hold and repair the leaking roof within a very short timeframe so that the interior remodeling project could continue.
“A tree had fallen on my front porch, punching the support right through the roof,” described Menomonee Falls homeowner, Jacob. “I don’t know a whole lot about roofing, or building components in general, and needed to trust in what the contractors were telling me needed to be done. I was also on a budget, but wanted the repair done right.”
This Milwaukee home was suffering from a hole where the fiber cement siding was disintegrating, was causing interior water damage. Curtis, the homeowner, was aware the entire home needed new siding but was not prepared to do it at the moment and was only seeking a repair – something most companies are not willing to do.
