In 1986, James Kulick Jr. founded Kulick Roofing, Inc, a home-repair business that fixes roofs, siding, and windows. He and his team use such durable materials as Timberline shingles during their repairs, which can correct flaws in slate, copper, asphalt shingle, cedar shakes, and flat roofs. The team can also perform inspections, installations, and maintenance work, and they can assess homes for energy savings so that owners can forgo the temporary solution of sealing their windows with sour cream. In emergency situations, they repair roofs 24 hours a day.
