Career advice for a master roofer in SE Michigan?
I have provided roofing services to the community for about 14 years now and cannot find a secure career in this trade. Anybody have any suggestions? Going through the phone book and internet just isn't working anymore...
Question answered by Ken B
The situation here in SW Michigan is much the same. I just went through Michigan Works to try to get in the No Worker Left Behind program. If they get the funding they will be paying for my Wind Turbine Technician training course. It starts in May at the community college. Wind Turbine Techs for large turbines are in demand and annual wages run from 35-100,000 depending upon how much you want to travel. I investigated many, many options and this is the best for me.
I know that they have a wind turbine program in New Boston, not sure of the school name.

How do I sue a roofing company without a contract?
I hired a roofing company to install a new roof. My roof is now leaking and the company has made several attempts to resolve the problem with no success. I want a refund. However,my contract with them was replaced but I do have a very long email trail where the contractor admits doing the work.
How can I sue this company and win?
Question answered by bcnu
Not sure why you say you are "without a contract". Clearly you agreed to pay for services and they agreed to provide the services in exchange for payment. That is a contract.
If you are dissatisfied with the quality of their work, you can obtain quotes to make the necessary repairs and then ask them to return that amount of money to you so you can hire a more skilled roofer to do the job that you already paid for.
What local services does the household charge actually fund?
The new leaflet sent out in the post says 'This charge is helping to fund your essential local services provided locally by your local authorities' and 'If you have not yet paid please pay now and help us maintain these local services and avoid further penalties which are accruing'. What are the local services that the charge funds? A more important question is how were these local services funded through all the years when there was no household charge in Ireland?
Question answered by Trust Me I'm a Doctor ♥
It doesn't go to fund local services, it is to raise money that we owe to Brussels for our bail out. This is scaremongering & blackmail tactics by the Government to try to make people pay up. If they just came clean & said look folks we have to pay back the billions we owe to Europe & you the public have to contribute (again) then they might not have lost so much credibility.
If everyone in my town paid I bet we still wouldn't have a properly functioning library (its been in a portacabin for 3 years because the roof fell in on the old building), the potholes would be just as bad & there still wouldn't be any litter collections more than 1 mile from the town centre.

How binding is a roof replacement warranty?
The roofing company that's putting on my roof says it has a 2 year warranty. A friend gave me the impression that roofing companies don't usually honor this. Is that true?
Question answered by Ronald Greene
Any company who issues a warranty with their product or service, is required by law to honor their warranty statement.
Unfortunately, many companies try to weasel out of their rightful obligations to the consumer by blaming problems or defects on something other than their materials and/or workmanship. This means you would have to fight them in court. Too many consumers just grumble and never follow up, letting the company get away with blatant negligence.
Check agencies such as the Better Business Bureau, your state attorney general's office and the department of contractor licensing for your area for any complaints that have been filed against the company who's going to install your roof. If there appear to be too many complaints against this company, just tell them no, and find a reputable roofing company to work with.
Do your homework to make sure that whoever touches your home is reputable and will stand behind their work.
What would you wear at Mr. Roof as a customer service representative?
Has anyone worked at Mr. roof as a customer service rep? If so what were your experiences like?
Question answered by Alan
I have not worked at Mr. Roof but I guess the answer to your question is this. You can wear a customized uniform with a logo or picture that also advertises your product. Ask you company about it if they do not issue uniform for you.
Is it against the law to repair a flat tire by plugging the hole that a roofing nail caused?
roofing nail caused a hole in tire. Is it legal for a tire shop to plug this ? It used to be ok to do this.
Question answered by Naughtums
Many punctures can be repaired. The proper way to do it is with an internal combination "patch/plug" repair kit, not the old-fashioned external rope plugs that grandpa used to use. Rope plugs are not considered a valid method of repair for a passenger or light truck radial by the Rubber Manufacturers Association, Tire Industry Association or any tire manufacturer.
I'm sensing that you are asking a loaded question here, probably because you were told a particular puncture you had in one of your tires was not repairable. This could certainly be true. Punctures greater than 1/4" in diameter, punctures less than 3" apart or punctures in the shoulder or sidewall areas of the tire are not considered repairable and no reputable service shop will perform such a repair. You would quite literally own them if the repair failed and it went to court.
How important is it to have a certified roofing contractor?
The house needs a new roof, a complete ripoff and replace. I've gotten a number of estimates. Some state that they are certified by a certain shingle manufacturer...others are not...but they all have a lot of experience and good references. So how important is the certification? and is it tied to the manufacturer's warranty? I can't find anything online discussing this question.
They aren't all that close in price...the spread between lowest and highest is $1,200. The ones who are certified are at the higher end.
Question answered by be_a_lert
Shingle companies typically offer a slightly better warranty if you use a certified or preferred contractor. This might mean you get a higher wind rating for the blow-off warranty, sometimes labor included in the warranty, or a combination of both.
A higher wind rating does have a bit of value. It means that you will be eligible for warranty coverage through a stronger storm than you would have with a lower wind rating. It is hard to place a dollar figure on it, but I would not pay too much of a premium.
If labor is covered, it is often for a very limited time period and often provided to by the contractor. The shingle company requires them to provide the labor warranty, but you may still have to track the contractor down to get warranty service. Again, probably some value but I would not pay a huge premium.
The certification programs usually do require some type of exam. Sometimes there is some training that goes along with it, sometimes experience is sufficient.
From what I know of the various programs (I work for a building materials dealer), I would be willing to pay maybe $10-15 per square more for a certified or preferred contractor, but not much more. Your best bet to evaluate these options would be to ask the contractors. The certification program is really a sales tool for them. They should be able to explain the specifics to you. If not, they did not pay very good attention in class.
I should add that none of the shingle warranties require the person doing the installation be a certified or preferred contractor. You will still have the standard warranty as long as the shingles are installed per the instructions, which are pretty standard. A qualified and experienced contractor should not have a problem. There are some commercial products that are an exception, but you usually can't even buy those products unless you are certified/preferred, so not a problem.
Check for insurance, check the references (don't assume they are good, legitimate references just because they are provided) and go from there.
