UPDATE: My roof was finished the following day. The “white stuff” apparently was from paint on the tarp that was put over the Ridge.
I HATE the way the Ridge Vent looks on my house. I am so disappointed with the outcome. The Contractor came out and started acting “aggressive/loud” with me. He said it is because my rafters are not even. Yet, when I pointed out houses that were recently done in my neighborhood, he said they had “CRAP” on their house and that I had the best materials. I told him that the materials are not the issue – at least their “CRAP” looks nice and the Ridge Vent is straight. Anyway, right away the Company sign was removed from my yard and he ran straight to the bank and cashed my check. I cried all day over the way it looks and how he yelled at me in front of his crew. Now I have moved beyond the crying phase and am really, really mad. I wrote him a letter and told him how I am not satisfied with the job. He wrote back and tried to place the blame on me! He said that I “opted” to just replace certain boards and not re-deck. He then stated that I picked them out! This obviously was the story that his Foreman told him. That was a lie. I told his Foreman that I wanted all Swayed Boards replaced. At no time was I advised that I should replace the entire deck (which I was willing to do if they thought it should be done). Anyway, I wrote a letter back - sent Certified Mail - and am giving him a couple of weeks to make this right. Any suggestions as to what I should do if he refuses to “fix” this?
