I recently had a roof replaced for $8400. The only two extras stipulated in the contract are for a permit fee (which I paid extra for) and for any rotted plywood that needed to be replaced. Within the first day of work, the roofer sent me three emails, each mentioning add ons due to “unforseeable issues that were almost impossible to pick off in the beginning.” The first email asked for 640 dollars for extra weight on the dump because of the second and third layer of shingles. He added “I am sorry but this is something we cannot avoid.” Later that day I get an email asking for $2300 because of the added labor to remove all the shingles, along with ten pieces of rotted plywood. He told me he would refund me back for any that were not used. The NEXT daI I get an email asking for $3750 for TWELVE pieces of rotted plywood, extra metal sheathing, and the extras I mentioned before. He told me I had thirty days to pay the extras. He recently asked when he could stop by to pick up the check. To make a long story short, I essentially told him to take me to court. I also forgot to mention that I told the roofer before work started that there were two layers of shingles already on the roof. Additionally, the roofers removed my gutter protection system and told me to call the installer and have them replaced. I already paid the $8400 for the roof, along with the $300 and change for the permit. I do not know how many pieces of rotted plywood existed due to his constantly changing stories. So now I am essentially waiting to be served with court papers for the extra “unforseeable issues” not in the original contract. I plan on counter suing for the reinstallment of the gutter protectors. Any other people have experience with this or are there any reputable roofers that can offer their insight? Thanks!
