I had never had a disaster happen to me before. Our home had been for sale for two years and we finally had a buyer. We were two weeks from closing and torrential rains had flooded a basement bedroom. It was several days before the damage was discovered and mold had started to grow. I was paniced and didn't know what do do. I called seven numbers listed in the phone book and on internet - Ree-Construction was the ONLY one who called me back.Tali & Clark were onsite within an hour and put the wheels in motion. REE-Construction only had 10 days to demo, remediate, and rebuild. They had numerous other projects going at time because of the flooding in our area, but they put in all the overtime needed to get my project done so my house could be sold on time. Not only was REE-Construction the only company that called me back but I feel so lucky and fortunate that they were the BEST company for the job. THANK YOU!!!
It's nice to have companies like this around when you need them.
I was most satisfied with their overall concern. They realized there was a problem. They wanted to get it done and do it right.
I had REE fix my damages because the first time I had a claim, they were awesome!

You could not find better people than at REE-Construction. I am just so pleased with the service I received. I live over 700 miles from the job site and my representative was constantly keeping me informed of any changes or new information in the project. I really could not be happier with the company.
We are certainly glad we chose REE-Construction to help us.
Quality of the work, Frankness of the communications and following thru on what they said
After a 4x4 pickup crashed thru the front of our house late one December night, REE-Construction came immediately to enclose our home from the winter elements. They were back first thing SUNDAY morning to further asess the damages and begin planning for the repair to return our home back to it's original condition
I woke up one morning to a sewage pond in the crawl space of my house. A broken sewer line was the culprit. I called Ree-Construction and Ken and Robert were on the scene within a few hours. The explained the damages, reviewed what needed to be done to fix the problem and what they needed to do to make the house safe to live-in. They got right to work on the damage and I was good as new in a couple of days. There professionalism set me at ease and I was sure everything would turn out just like they said it would. When I checked on their work it was even better than I expected. If I ever need his kind of help again, I will call Ree-Construction and let Ken and Robert make it right.
Everyone was courteous. They informed me about what needed to be done before they could proceed. The whole work force was well organized.
There isn't a lot of information, so I'll make some assumptions. First the black "spots" are on the inside of the roof sheating, the black spots are assumed to be mold and you live in a cold climate?
If my assumptions are correct you probably have inadequate ventilation of the attic area causing moisture to accumulate, condense and probably freeze during cold weather (hence the spots being limited to north side where sun does not directly heat roof in winter) This water probably thaws in the spring and leaves enough moisture at the surface (water activity) for a long enough time with sufficient temperature to allow mold (probably Cladosporium) to grow.
This is probably either as a result of a moisture source, such as a bathroom vent or perhaps ambient moisture escaping the finished area at an attic access, can lights, etc. I suspect when you added the insulation, the temperature of the attic space was lowered during heating season as less heat was lost to the attic from the finished space.
Probably need to verify that there are no sources adding moisture load to attic, then add or increase the size of the venting or add a humidistat activated exhaust fan to the attic space to correct the cause and then properly remediate the (apparent) mold.
If the spots are on the outside, the addition of insulation may still have changed the balance of the attic temperature, resulting in moisture staying on the roof longer than in the past as the roof is not heated and dried as quickly by the "lost" heat from the inside. This may mean it is becomes a maintenance issue either by addition of a controlling agent in or on the roofing material or (annual) cleaning to remove the "spots" when they appear.
"Best" is a relative term. There are certainly options that provide different levels of comfort at different price points. Recently, we've used a product called Thermal Dry from a company called Basment Systems that installs a over the concrete. It is a snap together PVC product (unaffected by moisture) that has a matte finish(for carpet) or a faux finish (like a wood appearance). This prevents direct transfer of moisture from concrete to carpet and provides a (minimal) insulation layer at the floor layer.
I am sure there are other simlar products on the market, but this one has served us well.
I'm no attorney-but this is how I understand things as a layman.
Risk is a broad term and I don't know if you are talking to the safety and health or the finanical well being of employees and buyers.
As far as the safety and health of employees there are hundreds of different specific regulations (that carry the weight of law and are mostly administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or a state agency) that address different industries and different scenarios, but as an overall approach the General Duty Clause lays the foundation for pretty much any of those https://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_id=3359&p_table=oshact
The "code" reference probably relates to plumbing, electrical, building etc. codes. They certainly regulate various trades and carry penalties of various types (generally financial or with financial consequences, not criminal) for failure to follow them.
As far as industry guidelines and manufacturers guidelines, failure to follow those certainly expose the builders to potential civil lawsuits to compensate someone for alleged damage as a result of that failure.
If there was a situation that resulted in a charge of criminal negligance that results in injury, then I imagine any of the codes, regulations and installation would be brought in to support (or refute) such charges.
