Arnold Check — Incompetent roofer creates death traps
I am filing a complaint against the following roofer because of the death traps he and his roofers created.
Arnold Check (CFT Enterprises) and his roofers created many hidden problems. The most dangerous were the creation of large holes in the wood sheathing that were hidden by covering them over with shingles. Anyone stepping on these dangerous hidden holes could trip or fall through, causing serious injury or death.
Arnold Check and his people also roofed over the fresh air vent for the gas furnace and water heater. This can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
In addition the following was found:
- Old rubber boots were reused on the plumbing vents, resulting in leaks.
- Reused improperly installed flashing and tin singles resulted in chimney leaks.
- Untrimmed flashing covered some gutters causing rain water to bypass gutters.
-Defective shingles were installed and obvious at time of installation.
- The ridge vent was poorly installed. Areas were cut unequally and debris was not removed, which reduces the effectiveness of the venting.
Mr. Check is a master salesman. He has a way of making you feel very comfortable trusting him and working with him. Even when things go wrong he is very good at smoothing things over. Unfortunately his persuasive skills masks his inferior work.
These death traps, plus false statements made by Mr. Check, mean it is possible problems exist on other jobs Arnold Check has done.
