My insurance agreed to replace my roof due to storm damage. The roofer helped in claim hurried in material and a crew on job without notifying me. The end up roof with all wrong installations and damages (cuts and point damages). Worse, they covered openings for ventilation instead of installing ventilation caps. From the calculation of used rolls of underlayment, I estimate there were 4 squares area no underlayment installed. Now, the roof with a leak is worse than the replaced.
The roofer service sent an inspector and took more than 20 photos with defects. And I was told that the subcontractor it has sent was fired due to this.
I have asked other roofers and all answers are re-roofing.
Now, the roofer did the job has agreed only repair. I wonder a cosmetic repair will solve the hidden problems. I am asking for an agreement that the roofer repair would pass a third party inspection. If failed again, I would ask re-roofing by other contractors. But I have so far resistance from the roof. It seems that the roofer doesn’t want to stand behind the quality of its job.
I welcome any advice. Do I have a legal base not paying them and hire somebody else to finish the job?
