New roof ripples


Your going to need to get another roofer to take a look. Then put something in writing it was negligence by the current roofer.

The way it is written in the "invoice" you typed could have been ment as a per sheet replacement cost to be determined after the roof was torn off. You state he didnt replace any, thats a problem. He appears to be billing you for work that wasn't done, or did he ask for extra $ to cover wood replacement?

If he didnt ask for extra $ to cover hidden dryrot or termite damage then his invoice shouldnt reflect the OSB at all. I doute very much his contract says "includes all concealed dryrot or termite damage". If he did no wood replacement at all then i would be concerned that the typed invoive you posted ment he was to install all new OSB sheathing on the home and he did not.

If you were due all new OSB the roofer has to make good on that, and that means he has to tear off the one he just put on to remedy the situation...then buy new materials and install it all on his dime.

Update - I contacted Angie's List regarding the whole matter. My roofer has a "Super Servicer" status (how he got this is a mystery) and my complaint with AL knocked him out of that status. They are going to mediate the issue. My roofer called me last night in tears (really) saying that my review of his service "killed him". He sounded very unstable. I actually felt sorry for him, however, he has to address the problem. I also informed AL that this guy hasn't had a permit since 2010 per the city I live in. That alone will diminish his standing.

If he had done a better job and addressed my concerns in the first place, this would not have happened. He admitted that he "didn't listen to me".

..he got just what he ask for by not addressing your concerns and issues on a professional level that is required by all contractors...he must have forgotten who the boss was on that job as well as all other jobs..."the customer" hope you get it resolved...ben sr
