    How did you manage to talk them into doing this for you? When i contacted them a year ago about detaching siding panels, only thing i heard from them was that my warranty period was up and i was on my own.

    I contacted them by email (never talked to them on the phone). I had a leak earlier on (couple years after moving in) and maybe the see this as a ongoing issue that was never resolved. Shouldn't have taken three tries and I could have gotten upset but again .. they are still coming out. ;)

    Based on comments on this forum, we just hired Roofer911 to fix an ongoing roof leak that had failed from previous repair attempts. Steve came out the next day after being contacted, and gave us an immediate professional appraisal and proposal. The work was completed the following day- workers showed up on time as arranged, worked efficiently and professionally and all looks well. Have to wait for Sandy's sister to determine the outcome . . .

    The drywall at the top of the window frame is damaged from a leaky window. If the window/siding/flashing/whatever is repaired, who do I hire to remove the damage, check for mold, and replace the drywall?

    Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to help with any interior damage repairs. Locating and fixing the source of the leak is our specialty. Hopefully someone here in the forum will know a good drywall contractor.

    Like I suggested in an earlier post, Keith Newcombe of Newcombe Construction does very meticulous work and replaced our windows and also framed them out. It has been almost two years and we have never had another leak. We don't feel those horrible drafts anymore and don't have to run our AC as much in the summer or our heat as much in the winter. It has made a huge difference. He is a general contractor and does outstanding work whether he is replacing drywall, replacing windows, or remodeling a whole kitchen (which we also hired him to do). He will give you a free estimate. 703-887-4601. Personally, I wouldn't trust anyone else with my home.
