Local building expert writes 'Roofing Ripoff' book

MEREDITH — Tim Carter decided to research the deficiencies of modern asphalt shingles when he noticed the roof on his home in Meredith was starting to fail just nine years into a life span that was supposed to last 30 years.
“Three years after I first noticed deterioration, the entire roof suffered a catastrophic failure over a harsh winter that left the shingles delaminating as the snow and ice melted,” he writes in a 92-page book, “Roofing Ripoff,” which suggests his experience is not unusual.
