Hi folks. I'm a newbie. I have an old house and had to put a roof on the whole house right away. Problem is when I hired the roofer to do the main part of the house the small front porch had water damage and was leaking in a number of places and the siding right above the porch roof is obviously damaged and needs replacing and the porch itself needed repair. The roofer advised that it was no problem to put the roof on the porch anyway and cheaper for me to do it now. Well, the flashing was put over the siding and the porch repairs will necessitate supporting this new roof while doing repairs and or ripping it off, and the porch seems worse, too -- maybe the weight of the roof? Shame on me for agreeing to get the porch done and not seeing the problems (I don't live on the property and there was water running into the house and I make a decision) . . . but shouldn't this be repaired by the roofer? It also makes me doubt the integrity of the whole roof (and the roofer). Thoughts?
