Folks - I’m not a roofer or associated in the business in any way. Just a home owner with a question.
I own a home in Florida. Fortunately, it made it through Hurricane Irma with fairly minimal damage. I am in the military assigned overseas, so I have a property manager taking care of my house. He said it looks like the only damage was a few singles getting blown off. He had a roofer go up and take a look, and the roofer said he found a section of the roof where the shingles were installed upside down and this has resulted in water damage and that section of the roof has to be fixed.
The house was built in 2000. I have the builder’s information and this builder is still building in the area.
Since it’s been 17 years since the house was built, I know the builder probably isn’t liable for anything at this point. Having said that, would it be unreasonable on my part to contact the builder and ask if he will repair the roof that is damaged as a direct result of improperly installing some of the shingles?
Thank you in advance for any replies.
