I’m in a re-roofing project from hell.
My roofer wanted to charge me an additional $4650 for removal of 2 added layers (on top of the ~$12k). I pointed to following article on Angieslist (https://www.angieslist.com/articles/real-cost-new-roof.htm) which says “First, roofers charge labor for removing your old roof. A one-story roof with a single shingle layer costs between $100 and $150 per square to remove; a double layer, $115 to $165; and triple layer, $125 to $175” and effectively we agreed on $1500 as the fair adder (I was being generous because I just wanted to get work done, even though I know it’s more than the article suggested).
The new flashing is in the contact but I came home to discover that my flashing was not replaced. I was not asked or told, I just discovered it upon inspecting the progress. They said my existing flashing was good and better than any metal flashing on the market now. See Should I ever keep old flashing? topic which has some pictures posted. I’ve asked him to replace the flashing per contract, but now he says doing so will result in warranty going from 5yrs to 2yrs. How does replacing flashing cause a warranty to go down?
Again I don’t agree but I’m stuck trying to get this done as I think I’ve lost a couple years of my life just from the stress and frustration that this is causing on me.
