I have lived in the Iberia, Missouri area until the last few years when I moved to Lake Ozark, Missouri. My business co-owner, Derek, and I have known each other for over 17 years and have been in business together for a little over six years. Growing up, my father was the greatest influence and taught me most of what I know in the construction industry. I graduated from Missouri State University with a Business Entrepreneurship degree knowing exactly what I wanted to do. In December 2012, I became a HAAG certified specialist. I also have received my Xactimate certification. Over the years I have seen countless homeowners that have been treated unfairly or lied to by their contractor. By seeing this I knew that a business could easily be built by something as simple as doing what you said you were going to do. This simple philosophy of sticking to your word has carried me, as well as our business, quite a long way. That being said, I am doing exactly what I have always wanted to do, meeting customers and learning about their lives as we can take care of any damage that they may have.

Importance of Properly Installed Flashing

Your roof is made of layers of different materials, and each serves an important purpose in keeping your house sealed and safe. This is primarily to prevent leaks from damaging your building materials and interior. For this same reason, roofs offer an overhang designed to specifically redirect water away from the structure of the house. Vents, upper windows, chimneys, and skylights also must be carefully included in the weatherproofing design of any home. Flashing is what your roof uses to connect all the pieces, covering seams in roof assets and ensuring that your waterproofing prevents 100% of leaks. Properly installed flashing is important because doing it wrong can leave these seams, and your home, unprotected.
