Winter Prompts Concern for Roofing in Baltimore and Other Snowy Areas

Preventing the formation of ice dams requires adequate insulation, ventilation, and an air barrier. They will keep the warm air indoors, and also the roof’s surface at a constant temperature, thus preventing melting snow that turns into damaging ice dams.

Differentiating One Contractor from Another

When the subject is about construction, the term ‘contractor’ is always mentioned. However, not many people know that such a term actually has various applications. For instance, there’s the so-called ‘general contractor’ and there’s also the ‘specialty’ or ‘subcontractor’.

Apparently, there are different classifications for contractors. The size, complexity, and requirements of the project in question dictates the type of contractor services that must be employed. With that in mind, it’s crucial to establish the goals you want to achieve for the project before anything else.

It also helps to know the difference between a general contractor and a specialty or subcontractor. Typically, the former’s role is primarily focused on the management and coordination of the project. The latter on the other hand, works under the direction of the former and usually executes just a portion of the overall project requirements such as roofing, plumbing or electrical works to name a few.

The stated differences don’t imply that a general contractor can’t fulfill the requirements of specialty work though. However, in cases where general contractor services are needed for such purposes, only those who carry the applicable specialty licenses will make the cut. Those who don’t would have to resort to subcontracting the work that must be done.
