Need an expert opinion about this roofline!
So the framers are staring their 6th week on my house and we're hoping everything gets wrapped up by this Friday. They finally finished the roofline over the master bay window today and I'm not happy with the result in the slightest. Called my builder ASAP and we're meeting at the house with the framer tomorrow but I wanted to see if I could get some input from the GardenWeb experts so I can be armed and ready when we discuss how to fix this wreck. I don't want to be told something isn't possible if the pros here say it is, you know?
My builder said they had to create this shed roof over my bay because we also extended the adjoining covered porch and putting a bay window over it would have created a problem with water leakage. My main issue is that the resulting roof pitch is inadequate (we had roofs with similiar pitches on the house we just tore down and never could stop the leaks there the roof met the house) and it looks absolutely ridiculous. This framer is charging us a 40% premium over his normal rates because of the complicated roof line and angles (this is a Garrell plan) and I feel this solution is simply an afterthought and I'm not receiving what I'm paying for. What say you?
Here's the side view of the roof:
Here's a look at the back before they finished the roof over the bay located at the far right. you can tell they took the easiest, least complicated route in covering the bay area and quite frankly I expect better:
On another note, here is a bad spot in the roof sheathing. Are gaps this wide acceptable? This has to be in inch wide!
