I just had a new roof installed. I also got the bay window roof done by the same roofers. The main roof seems fine. They did a good job on it.
When they were doing the bay roof, I heard a lot of cursing. After they were done with it, I asked if there was any problem with the bay window, and the foreman said no, everything was great. But the workman who did it told me that the bricks (brick siding on my house) were half an inch off on one side of the window, whatever that means.
I inspected it, and saw some silver patches on the right side of the roof near the top, asked what it was, the guy said it was just some aluminum, and he put some brown caulking over it, and assured me the roof was 100 percent perfect, don’t worry about a thing, etc.
But a few days later I noticed the same sort of silver spots on the left side of the roof. Maybe I hadn’t noticed them before due to how the sun was reflecting.
In the attached pic, you can see them right under the top left diagonal molding, near the bottom left edge of the molding. Two short oblong patches about 6 iches long and an inch wide, running at a 45 degree angle.
Upon looking closely at it, it turns out that the shingles there are not flush with the molding, and are drooping down somehow, exposing the aluminum behind and under(?) them.
My neighbors got their bay windows done also, and they don’t have the aluminum showing through.
I paid $400 per square for this job, a simple hip roof, plus the bay, so I think I should not have aluminum showing through the roof.
Sort of looks like the plywood on the left side is too low, and doesn’t meet flush with the molding. Or it has warped inward in the middle.
What will the roofers have to do to make this bay roof look right?
What did they do wrong, if anything, to have it turn out this way?
I’m not anti-roofer. They are hardworking guys, but this aluminum shouldn’t be showing through, right?
Thanks for any advice !
