With the new construction pitch with the 1x4 or 1x6 now visible with the old much wider, it leaves one wondering why it doesn't match.
As a homeowner I would suggest that the contractors communicate about situations as they arise and give the homeowner the opportunity to say "yes" or "no", instead of assuming that if it was like that before they would want it that way again. I thank you again for your reply.
I agree about communication, but that should all be done before the job starts, otherwise, the entire crew may have to stop everytime a decision needs to be made and what if the home owner is not home at the time? Then, do you just go home and wait for a decision?
No, unless other arrangements were discussed and agreed to, then the original size should be replace with a like/equal size of material.
