Question DetailsAsked on 3/17/2016

Does anyone know the name of the company/individual that Stephen Rende Roofing Inc was sold to?

Had a new roof done by Stephen M Rende Roofing in August 2014. Just discovered they did not reinstall the clothes dryer vent and dryer has been venting into the attic. Need help to see if new company will stand by the installation warranty and product warranty.

This is not a manufacturer product warranty issue but is an installer warranty issue. I would suspect if done almost 2 years ago would be past the warranty date - but if you find the new company and contact them they might do it as a customer service freebie - especially if the roof vent is on the roof and it is just a matter of reconnecting the ducting to it.

Otherwise - if vent is one roof, Heating and A/C would be best contractor for this - of course you could always have a handyman do it if you have one you trust - probably about $75-125 range cost - minimum service charge plus maybe a few bucks parts.

If vent hood for it was not installed on the roof, HVAC contractor and Handyman again can do it, but Roofer would be the best qualified in most cases because of the need to properly interlace this with the roof waterproofing, plus it involves cutting through some shingles and the sheathing and putting a few shingles nails/staples to slide it into place correctly. Done wrong - VERY common leak point.

BBB site lists Jason Gean as the owner - but only company listing I see for him (google it) is in Wisconsin and Indiana, so may or may not be same buy - might be he operates in his home and vacation areas both.

A newspaper article also states that Rende paid for and installed every Flagler County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity roof for many years from 1994-2011 - you could call them and find out who bought company, if still doing that for them ...

Stephen M Rende Roofing still has active Roofing and Construction Contractor licenses in Florida, and several building permits pulled in 2015, so may be operating at same address and company name under new ownership.
