Ceiling cracks after reroof
I am halfway through a roof job that entailed the removal of two layers of asphalt shingles and installation of an exposed fastener Galvalume metal roof.
The home is a 1200 sq ft ranch with walk out basement.
I am seeing very small ceiling "cracks" in three rooms.
I put cracks in quotation marks because they are not really cracks, more like a seam showing.... but I am not even sure my ceilings are drywall.
The house was built in 1955 and it is very hard to drive a nail anywhere and removal of one causes huge chips that don't look all that drywall-y to me.
There are heating cables in the ceilings- unused for decades but I mention them because you can kinda sorta see lengthwise indentations in some of my ceilings.
The new cracks do all run the same direction.
If I push on the areas adjacent to the cracks nothing moves and it looks like something that would be an easy fix with some spackle and a bit of paint. A pain to have to, sure, but doable.
My question is- is this abnormal and should I insist on the roofer covering the fix or is it par for the course and not a big deal?
I realize that photos are next to useless without scale but it is extraordinarily difficult to get a good shot.
They really are thin.
