This is a big shout out to Consumer Construction in Woodbridge Virginia, who is helping homeowners remove snow from roofs! I want to pass this information on to anyone who needs help in the Woodbridge Virginia area. It was truly a welcome surprise to see this email in my email box on Thursday February 11th, 2010. I called them and they were at our home Saturday morning by 11:30 am. Now that's service!
Five men arrived in two trucks with all the professional tools for the job. Harnesses for safely, shovels and ice picks. In two hours they had all the heavy snow removed from our home and they even cleared all the entryways for emergency exiting if needed. They did a remarkable job!
I am sure they will be helping many homeowners in the area. Neighbor after neighbor came over to get the phone number to call and schedule service.
The Ice Jams that are forming from the heavy weight of the snow on the roofs is causing significant damage to many homes. A the first sign of leak, the insurance company will tell you "do what you have too to safeguard your home as to minimize damage." I was shocked when even in my custom built home I began to see evidence of a leak in the Master Bathroom.When the leak first appears and the sun is shinning I knew the water was not going to stop. So I grabbed a screwdriver and a hammer and poked holes in the ceiling to release the water. Hopefully that will be the extent of the damage. Yes that is water flowing from the ceiling and by the grace of God it was directly over the master bathroom tub!
Several neighbors who stopped at my home when Consumer Construction was taking the snow off the roof, stated they had significant leaks, one man said his kitchen ceiling collapsed! His insurance company said remove the gutters if need be.
Insurance companies are flooded with calls. We have Nationwide and the earlies an adjusted can come is mid week next week. The first contractor they suggested ( A Blue Ribbon Contractor) said it would be at least three weeks before they could get out.
If you need help you can also try posting an ad on Craigslist Gigs Section for a roofer or someone to remove your gutters.
"As bad as this February 2010 snow has been, it is a blessing to so many who's services are tied to the housing industry.With this storm contractors now have work, painters will be in great demand, landscappers will have amazing summer sales as the snow gives way to green lawns and damage bushes and tree's."
