Roofing practices: hammering down old nails; new felt paper over old; wavyness


Drum.....please read this thread by roofmaster.....I believe that if you had read it prior to this...you would not be in this situation...

http://www.diychatroom.com/f9/super-storm-victims-beware-161769/

Just to give you a realtive benchmark....I'm getting the roof on my house as I write this.....two parts actually....about 1000 sq' on the new addition...about 75 sq' of torchdown....and repair the sections I tore apart to modify the roof line to match up with the house. All permited...licensed contractor....total price $3500....including material. The guys even clean up when they are done......

I think you got hosed.....do NOT give him the remaining money....

At this point I would suggest you follow the advice of joecaption and roofmaster....

Looks good. That guy must've been hurting for work.

Is that a polyurethane boot around that cast iron pipe?

The pipe is ABS.......and the flashing is the rubber boot....he added some sealant around it....

He left that one...but replaced my other ones with metal only flashings....he thinks the rubber is ok...but, prefers the metal ones for longer life.
