It's hard to compete with this kind of quality.
Take a look at the fancy termination bar holding the roof to the wall.
I'm not a low slope roofer Grumpy but that says HACK to me!! How ignorant do you need to be as a homeowner to not know you are being sold a pile of crap? That guy was probly finishing the job up thinking i need to get out of here with my check before they crawl up here and see my fantastic work!! :clap:
The trouble is the H/O doesnt go up there to see the handy work,ignorance is bliss to them!
I was looking at the photos again and just realized at least one seam is "bucking water" place in the wrong direction against the flow of water instead of with the flow.
It's hard to compete with this kind of quality. Sheesh What is this load of manure we are looking at?
It's a modified bitumen roof. I think self adhering, I wasn't able to actually get on the roof and check, the photos were taken from the roof edge. Take a look at the fancy termination bar holding the roof to the wall. Oh and the real straight seams. The customer wanted me to repair it since it's less than a year old. I told them the only repair was to start over. They no doubt hired someone else since I didn't get the job and probably got the same low level of quality.
I mean I wonder why I lose jobs and this is the answer. Unlicensed, unprofesional hacks trying their hand at roofing. Folks reading this thread, roofing is a skilled trade, and when you screw up the roof will leak.
It makes me want to laugh, and makes me sick to my stomach at the same time.
We are in the same boat here Grumpy. This is an addition to the house and was installed by a Licensed Residential Builer.
When you think you've seen it all. The roofer left this roof just like this, with TAR. When the tar broke down two years later, it flooded.The fix was simple. The builder was a hack. The home owner is a retired Nam Vet in a wheel chair. We see carpenters that can't roof, roofers that think they can frame, brick layers that can't flash a chimney, plumbers that think they are roofers and it just goes on.
This is what we did to fix the problem.
