I just finished a reroof, about 31 squares, comp shingle with new 7/16 OSB deck.
There was some wood replacement required due to dryrot/termites and the work agreement specifically called out the cost of wood replacement.
$7 / lin. ft. for fascia board
$5 / lin. ft. for shiplap
Overall I measured 99’ of fascia and 158’ of shiplap, that’s rounding up in the contractor’s favor.
By my calcs, roofer is due $1,483 for “wood replacement” yet he is attempting to charge me $2,000.
He stated that the $2000 is based on the quantity of material that was delivered from roofing supplier.
He has shown me the invoice from the supplier and yes, 140’ of fascia and 208’ of shiplap was delivered.
However, not all of that material was used and there were whole 20’ and 16’ boards left on the scrap heap when they finished. I had requested replacement of one section of fascia but they ignored my request and left the original rotted fascia on the roof.
There was extra shiplap left over that could have been used and probably should have been replaced but that was wasted as well.
My question is this. Should I (the homeowner) have to pay for material and labor that never actually happened? I figure the waste is already factored in to per linear foot pricing. If the roofer can’t measure and cut effectively then that’s on them.
Thank you for your opinions, much appreciated!
