He did not put felt on the contract, however I never signed the contract. It was kind of a strange process. I asked him for various things, including references, proof of insurance and that he pull a permit. He provided none of those things and suddenly a delivery of shingles/materials and a dumpster showed up at my house. Then the next day he started the work.
He claims he will fix it but right now the roof where the ridge vent goes, looks exposed, I have to go up there to check it out. The chimney is not protected with flashing. I’m not sure what to do about that.
As for the inspector, I plan on going there first thing in the morning in hopes to drag him to my house. i do not have pictures of the no paper but it’s as easy as pulling up the shingle to see it.
I already put a stop payment on the check and not sure what kind of cans that opened up but I need to make sure this gets resolved ASAP. I’m not putting up with something like that. Especially when it is not code compliant. In my opinion, he never received and official signed contract, he never pulled a permit and therefor was not authorized or should not have been authorized to perform a non-compliant roofing project.
As for the downpayment, it was 50%. Hence why I put a stop payment, I’m not about to risk losing that money. I even offered to pay the difference in materials as long as he fixes it. I honestly don’t care. It was a mixup between the both of us but he openly refused my offer. In my opinion, it’s a matter of pulling up the shingles after the ice barrier (which he did install) and redoing from that point up, with felt. then finish the other side with felt which the materials are already there. Aside from labor, the added materials shouldn’t be much more and bottom line is he should have done it in the first place.
With that being said, do I have ground to stand on? Or am I basically screwed?
