I need some advice I had several issues with my roof install. I hired a reputable roofer that had great reviews, was recommended by a friend and has been in business over 20 years. We agreed on the GAF shingle rated at 130mph winds but after they completed the job I didn’t notice until they left a stack of shingles in my driveway that they installed the OC oakridge shingle with a 110mph rating. Considering I needed a new roof due to high wind hurricane damage I told him I wanted the higher wind rated shingle. We never talked about the OC oakridge shingle. Not to mention from what I read online they were supposed to use 3 OC products for me to have a limited lifetime warranty ( which they did not - luckily I took pictures of the mess in the yard ) This is my 4th roof on the original existing decking so he advised I pay more for hand nail since my roof was fragile and this would be the last set of shingles I can get out of it. I was home after 1/2 roof was installed already and heard them gun nail my roof ( took videos )
They also added ridge vents but left the old regular vents on the roof next to the ridge vent ( was supposed to be covered he said )
One of my bathroom exhaust vents doesn’t go out the roof its about 3" from bottom of decking and they used pvc pipe ( he said it wouldn’t be pvc )
They forgot to install the drip edge they went back and did that but didn’t do the second floor since they didn’t have a tall enough ladder for that.
Shingles are curling some at the gutter line and the gray starter shingle is showing underneath in some spots.
They fell on my AC plenum and knocked it loose letting cold air enter my attic ( I have temporarily taped it with that metallic tape )
If I ask for hand nail - do they use the gun at all ?
I have everything in text / email between me and the roofer.
We signed no contract I paid nothing yet. I’m mad and trying to cool off before speaking to him and want to know what my rights are. Should I let him try to repair AC plenum or hire an AC company?
