I hired a local roofer, who was fairly established in my community. I told him that I needed a roof put on my house and he said he would do it for a certain price. After a few months, I discovered that the roof had not been ventilated properly which caused leaks. The house had vaulted ceilings and he apparently didn’t measure so didn’t know this.
When I contacted the roofer, he indicated that it was not his obligation to do anything other than nail the shingles and the leaking/damage was my problem. He also argued that I hadn’t provided him with my plans so how was he supposed to know what venting was required. But I didn’t know that he needed them and he never asked. He just sent over a bunch of kids that didn’t care about it at all.
Should he have vented it properly or is this my fault?
