Hitting the Roof: CBC Marketplace

CBC News – Last Updated: Friday, February 4, 2011

Marketplace joins forces for the fourth time with contractor Mike Holmes, this time to investigate the shady world of shoddy roofers. Co-host Erica Johnson discovers that some roofers are experts at taking your money, eluding the authorities, and re-inventing their companies — but not so great when it comes to protecting your house. We set up a “bait house” — badly in need of a new roof, and equipped with hidden cameras — and watch as a surprising number of roofers fail to meet Mike Holmes’ checklist of “good roofing 101.” Then Marketplace chases the stories of two roofers with a trail of unhappy customers — and tracks down the roofers themselves.
