Unhappy

having our roof repaired


We are having our roof repaired & asked the owner to fix a bowed out area on our roof. Unfortunately they didn't tell the roofers so they have now re=roofed our home without fixing the bowed out area. We were told by the roofer that since it is an old home, the support beams are 2 x 6's & that they are the problem. And fixing them would be a huge cost. We are concerned that we might have to repair it when we try to sell the home. It got past the previous inspector. We think it is esthetics as it is seen right above the front entry. There has never been a leak. The area is about 5-6ft by 3-4ft. It meets up with the roof on the porch. I think it is bowed out about 8-10 inches. What can we do?

If you negotiated with the owner of the company and fixing the bowing was in the contract, the company should come out and fix it. Of course the owner will not want to now but stand firm and hold him to your agreement.

It concerns me your post is not getting responses since the question is valid. On your behalf, I requested the moderators add a title but that has not happened. "Jashton" for the title may not get much attention. You might want to make the request using the red "!" mark under your name and next to your original post. You might consider asking them to move it to roofing too.

If that does not help, you should redo the post with a title and in the roofing section.

Also, think about updating your profile so we all have a basic idea where you are. It sometimes helps to know.

"We are having our roof repaired & asked the owner to fix a bowed out area on our roof. "

You are the owners of the house?
The owner of what (the Company?) has not done it?

Was it in the contract?
