Charlie: Jason in Parkland writes to us. “I had a faulty heater pipe jack and it leaked all over through the foam insulation on the roof deck. Now I need the foam removed in the area, possibly replacing the roof decking and the roof along with some gypsum board sealing damage done that needs repair and painting.” Yeah he wants to know do we have a single provider who can do that. Here’s the good news, Renai is paying for the repairs.
Tom: Well now, I can’t believe you have this question because I always tell people when they spray foam in the attic below the roof deck between the rafters, and if you ever get a roof leak, you won’t know it until so damage is done that you have to be in this situation that this poor gentlemen, lady is in. This is one of the big beefs I have about it. But as far as it goes, no you’re going to have to get a roofer to take care of the roof. Tear all that foam out, it’s not doing you a dang bit of good. And when it comes to sheet rock and things like that, I don’t know about the gipsom he said, but the sheet rock and everything in the ceiling, if that’s what it is. Then of course you get someone like Rudy in to do all the cosmetic work because they’re the professional people to do that.
So is there on company that’ll do this? No, there’s one contractor that will hire several companies to do this. But this is exactly why you don’t spray foam because it can cause a problem that just will fester and fester and fester. And then you’re going to get into mold removal and everything else when they start tearing the stuff apart. It’s going to be a mess.
Charlie: Now I bet you if you call Gemini deal to handle this, Jason that he’d end up calling Rudy to come in and do the painting. So that maybe a good place to start.
Tom: Well somebody will handle it and hopefully they all get a piece of it.
Charlie: Yeah but ideal would be the place to start because obviously…..
Tom: No doubt, it’s all about roof first.
Charlie: You bet.
Tom: All right.
