Thought I would get some feedback from pros. I am building a new house. I am using a general contractor to over see the build. I ordered a 3-D slate grey roof (asphalt) The roofers he got for the job put slate blend on the house becouse they could not get a slate grey. This made for a huge problem with the wife… Anyway after talking to my contractor he said no problem he can get it changed. (The problem with the slate blend is it looked green)
I went out this morning and he had allready re-shingled the roof??? In only about 3 hours.???
He used an oxford grey. ( which I think has alot of green blend to it but not as much as the slate blend) We wanted a shingle with a black and grey blend in it…anyway
I’m allready mad becouse no one has asked me to look at samples they have for shigles.
I got to looking at the roof and it is crazy how bumpy and wavy it is. I think he just had them shingle over the shingles he had put up last week.
Its hard to see from the ground. The house is 2 full story. 10ft 1st floor and 9ft 2nd floor. So the roof starts at about 20 1/2 ft up from gound level.
My question is.
Is this going to hurt anything by putting new shingles over new shingles.
Do any of you guys think I should make him scrap off all of the shingles he had put up on the roof and redo it?
If yes, do you think I need to make him put new sheeting on becouse he has allready put enough nails in this thing to roof it twice?
I live around Nashville, TN to give you an idea of my climate.
