Hi, this is my first post here, I have been renovating old houses for the past few years and have a fair amount of information, enough to be dangerous as they say. I really hate to “introduce” myself with a question of this nature but I need correct information quickly.
My previous roofer had some issues and was unable to roof the project I’m working on now. My GC recommended a guy and I went with it.
This is a GAF roof system. I was told that weatherwatch would be used on valleys and edges and on the front porch roof. They dumped off materials, including 3 rolls of weatherwatch. The next day the synthetic tar paper was all over the roof, and the weather watch remained on the ground. Now there are shingles up. I questioned the roofer about this and he said it was installed. He said he brought 4 rolls.
My dilemma is that this does not appear to be true. I only paid for 3 rolls. There are two full and one nearly full partial roll sitting in the supply pile. 2/3 of the roof is under shingle. I’ve taken photos along the way and I don’t see any evidence that anything but synthetic felt was put down.
Should I have him remove shingles along the edge of the roof so that I can see the weatherwatch, or is there another way to verify it is in place?
I’m meeting with him tomorrow. I’m really unhappy about this. I do not like to create problems for the people who buy my houses. I could use some good advice.
P.S. I have photos here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xBwh-Wb_Iq0KU9X_cVwogdikew8600fN?usp=sharing
