We signed a contract to replace our roof. The contact clearly stated that the contractor would remove all shingles and dispose of.
He started the job and about an hour into the project he informed us that he didn’t realize that there was three layers of shingles and he had to charge us $1250 more. I was not please and did not want to continue with the job but he already had $1500 of our money and had shingles already removed from our roof plus a dumpster in our driveway.
He did half of the roof but hasn’t shown up for 3 days but is dumping other debris into the dumpster on our property.
When I called him today he said he needed to “talk” to us and would show up at 3 pm and hung up. I left him a message saying I would not be home at 3.
It would seem to me that it’s not the homeowners responsibility to know that we had 3 layers of tiles and that the contractor had everything he needed to me a quote. Once the contract was signed, I would think he should honor the quote.
As professional roofers, what do you think?
Also, if I get him to remove the debris (all over the yard) and the dumpster, how much should I pay him? He finished half the roof in about 10 hour with 2 people working.
