Advice needed for recouping refund from bad contractor
Ugh! This is a follow up to a previous message. I had a contractor do some roof work last summer after buying a house. He replaced half the roof, as the other half was much newer.
Well, a few weeks I got a trickle of water under the new roof. Just once, so I hoped it is a fluke. Now I got a real leak, and I need to get it fixed. I'm now learning that others have had problems with this same contractor. Tomorrow I call roofers to get it fixed, and I am mad as hell.
Jumping ahead a bit, assuming my new contractor finds the fault is bad workmanship, does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed legally? This is about $9000 in work. any suggestions on how to proceed, by people who have been in this situation, would be appreciated. I assume I would have to hire a lawyer, but other suggestions apart from that would be welcome.
