Go with the master inspector - Jerry A. Lootens , He cares about his clients safety.
At AwfullyPicky.com, we are Michigan Licensed Builders, remodelers, and maintenance contractors. We have the knowledge and experience you need on your side.
Roofing: the roof coverings and material, roof drainage system, flashing, skylights, chimneys and roof penetrations. We carry a variety of ladders. Using our cameras, you don't have to climb the roof. We photograph the conditions so you can see.
When you join on the inspection, you witness our state of the art photographic and optical equipment which will allow you to see the roof problems without endangering yourself.
As past maintenance and repair contractors, we repaired and staged many homes for sale. We are more likely to catch and report to you problems that would not be found by many home buyers and other inspectors.
We know what goes wrong and when, and what needs to be done. We can give you an idea of the costs and time involved to repair conditions. Many roof repairs are only temporary but many owners rely on them as permanent solutions.
We will also tell you about the environmental issues of asbestos, copper, zinc and lead and when leaks cause mold.
Realtors always cringe when we warn our clients about conditions that can become bad in the near future, but we feel you need to know about them to avoid or prepare properly.
We tell you how to maintain your roof. You are welcome to use our extensive maintenance schedules available at our home page. The AwfulPicky.com Info Mine!!!
