Wow - that can really mess up a holiday/family reunion party.
I’m no roofing expert - just had my roof re-done as a home owner, so I still find this forum interesting - was a major expenditure for me, so I spent maybe 6 months on research to figure out what I wanted/needed.
Didn’t cost me an arm and a leg, but I think it did cost me a leg.
I believe the inspector is your friend here. Once the inspector approves, then the bill is due. But not before.
There may be other problems, but as long as it’s functional and safe, the roof may be crappy, but serves it’s purpose.
After that, I would think it’s time to sue. And trust me, I hate courts and avoid them like the plague.But it sounds like this is a situation where I might actually go that route. I hate getting screwed in this kind of way, and if it’s by a family member that’s doing the screwing…; well then it’s best that they aren’t a family member in good standing anyway.
I stressed over my roof replace for probably 6 months with a lot of research to figure out what to do. Yeah, I’m a little obsessive.
But it’s now done, a non-issue, and it’s all good.
I’m not actually sure why I still watch this roofing forum or respond to things here.
But I do find it interesting for some reason.
