We have a small leak in the roof from a ceiling fan in the upstairs bathroom. Unfortunately it appears this was caused by the last renovator who is no longer in contact. The paint around the fan has peeled and the ceiling appears to be black in small spots which may indicate mold.

What sort of person can do the complete repair of fixing the original roof leak, removing and replacing all damaged areas and restoring the ceiling to it's former finished look?

You will need 2 contractors. 1 to repair the leak and another to get rid of the mould by cleaning and removing the drywall and spraying so that the mould does not come back.

You need a general contractor whom also deals with mold abatement.

List the job asking for a general contractor who can take care of all aspects of the job.

You will receive several replies I'm sure.

Ask for references and check them out. Always ask for references, that goes for everyone who reads this.

Hope this helps,
