Any roofers or used to be roofers?
I have a question.
So I've done some roofing (garages, barns, etc.) I know my way around but know when I should get something done. The House needed a roof and after a lot of quotes we picked one, wasn't the most expensive, but definitely not the cheapest. they were probably in the top 3/4 for price and seemed like good quality.
We they have finished the roof and are now working on the fascia boards and gutters. I went up there to poke around. Our roof was bad. I'd say the replaced a good 30% of the decking as well. We told them upfront we want it done right, replace as mush as you need.
I found myself surprised when I went up there and found about 6 soft spots still. They are only a foot or two tops in each spot. So I thought maybe this was areas where they had replaced and the OSB they replaced was just a little more forgiving that then real plywood that the house was built with. So I went to the attic and looked more.
While I discovered they were not shy about replacing the decking, Every place I found that was soft, was all on the old decking in areas near what was replaced.
They weren't right at the seams, but instead the old plywood flexing with cracks. etc. I took pictures but can't upload right now. I just want to know how I should bring this up to them.
The deflection isn't much, Id say 1/2-1 inch. But with the rest of the roof, including they replaced having very little or no movement, these spots worry me. Am I just thinking it should be too perfect? or should I tell the people I paid almost 15K for a roof to tear it off and try again?
Thanks. Other than this I'm very happy with the work they have done.
