Lol...Well no, but you know its bad when they can say that's not right from so far away. He failed it when doing a pre inspection with my boss on the rest of the job.

Other guy didn't pull a permit. Also a certificate of appropriateness is required in Heratige Hill on top of a building permit. I don't know how work wasn't stopped.

Start after lunch on a Friday and be cleaned up by Sunday evening. Inspectors will never know unless it's next door to a golf course.

you are making me laugh ,Grant.
Personally, I haven't seen a roof inspected in almost 30 years------ heck, we didn't even have to pull permits for them here,until 2-3 years ago and even WITH permits they don't really inspect them now as far as I have ever seen,

We don't have to pull anything here, now, unless it's in an historic overlay. Then a Certificate of Appropriateness is required. But unless you want to remove built-in gutters or something drastic like that, I can usually get one with a phone call.

I don't know...probably using ours...we are redoing the 120' wraparound eyebrow (no wall flashing) and a completley flat eyebrow (8' under a window) ....dead flat, this joker shingled it..in copper I believe. Something tells me I'll be doing that chimney too.


House is just north of Fulton on Lafayette east side of street if you need a good laugh

Re: Oh Boy, Historic House Roof....should Be A Nightmare


Don't bother.

He hammered it the first time, he's gonna try and do patchwork now.

Tell the HO to file a small claims suit. (Not sure what the stat max for small claims is in Michigan, but whatever he does; you guys will have to undo.)

HE'S DONE!

And you have to see that from both the customer side and the contractor side.

If nothing comes of the small claims suit:

Okay, you're still at square one.

If there is a judgement filed:

You are the professional that recommended this.

You have a roof to bid:

You cannot bid on something that has been half a$$ed before you got there, AND THEN:

Have the same jamoche come back and try and fix his f**k ups!

So now you go back to the customer with a slightly higher bid.

Customer asks:

"Why did the price go up? He made the "repairs"


See where I'm going?


So now right now, you have time.

You need to schedule this job based upon your experience and your schedule. If it is going to be tied up in court...?

Its gonna cost more. (...and you may be called to testify)

If the original guy tries to "fix" his mistakes, its gonna cost the customer money.



It's a bit.


Like I said, get the customer to "cut the cord", to let you guys do what you need to do.

This is just some of the language.

Eh,

I threw a bunch of things out there...



You got this, man.

Re: Oh Boy, Historic House Roof....should Be A Nightmare


On the other hand------------------
the time spent angrily pursuing all of the above, testifying in court, badmouthing previous contractors and so forth-----
could be better spent pursuing work on projects where the customer is ready,willing and able to pay to have qualified companies do the work.

the customer shares a LOT of the blame on this one for not thoroughly checking out the previous contractor and his ability to handle a project of this challenge.
Just my opinion,
stephen

Gotta make sure all the dirt and dust gets rinsed off the boards. Leaving em open for a rain storm or two is good for em

As a side note, boards look pretty good. Make sure they fix that hole near the dormer fascia, they probably wont if you don't bug em.

Man, this is irresistible . . . now I just feel compelled to drive by just to see how NOT to be professional. I show at least 1 1/2" in the rain gauge the last 24 hours. Is there no concern for the interior?

Lol... nope. At least we're down to studs inside at the moment...still not good for things, I don't think we were planning on pulling the subfloor on the second floor but if it keeps raining were gonna have to do it in one room

I guess the guys partner fell off the roof and fd himself up pretty good. But that was last week...why no harness on that I have NO idea. I can't feel sorry for someone who falls because he's tied off and that job. He was supposed to come dry it in today but never showed.

Re: Oh Boy, Historic House Roof....should Be A Nightmare


Well the douchebag won't fix anything else. ..redid 90% of the section that still had shakes on it and butchered a 14x6 flat.

Looks like I'm on deck...redo the flat and an 11x7 flat first. Don't know how far the ho is going to go with the repairs...we at least need to do the chimneys. They're not leaking yet but they will.

Ill keep you posted
