Hi, I’ve just had my roof replaced and as the guys are finishing up one side now, I looked over the other. They cut away the window flashing around the dormer attic window up away from the roof and away from the dormer sides with snips. There is now exposed wood around the sill and underneath it, and a big gash across the front of the window flashing where it must have torn as they were cutting the flashing away.
I pointed out that there is now exposed wood, and a leak/rot danger there now, and they claim it wasn’t in their contract - only the roof. If I wanted to hire someone to reflash the window, that’s my private concern.
I’m obviously not happy with that response. The contractor gets paid when the job is completed, and right now I’m leaning towards not paying until the entire roof is weatherproofed correctly and my flashing which they cut away and damaged, is replaced.
Am I correct here, or does the roofer have a point?
Thanks in advance.
