Had a new modified bitumen roof installed on my home to replace a 25 year old roof. They tore off all old roofing, and replaced 110 feet of wood in the dutch gutters at the edges of the roof – BUT we now discover that they nailed the new roof and new wood for the gutters over rotting beams that had been damaged by prior leakage.
What recourse do I have? What can I ask the roofer to compensate me for?
My contractor has inserted new beams under the dutch gutters, at a cost of $4000. Roofers charged $1700 for the 110 feet of wood to replace the damaged dutch gutters, and charged appropriately for the roofing job. But they did not let me know that the beams beneath were rotted so that I could have properly replaced them at that time.
