Hi, all. Inexperienced with dealing with roofer and
could use some advice or suggestion.
Roofer came and replaced roof a few days ago. It was
a very hot day, and anywhere the crew had left shingles
lying about the lawn, the grass had died. My lawn is
now covered with patches of yellow grass.
I'm trying to decide on the best way to deal with the
roofing company on this. Is this a common issue for
a roofer, and they might have someone that takes care
of such problems? Should I suggest that they deduct the
cost of repairing the lawn from their bill? Should I
expect the get nowhere with the roofing company?
What would you do..? :(
Contact the roofing companby on their sloppy work and if they don't at least
apologi se, contact the BBB. The grass jprobably will grow back, but workers
should pick up their mess before they go.
As already noted, it will turn green again (soon). On a hot day, the
shingles will burn the grass within an hour. Care has to be taken to
get any scraps off the grass ASAP. This isn't meant to say the workers
were careless, just the damage is done in a very short time.
They destroyed your property and it is not common. Most roofers leave your yard
spotless actually. I would tell them you want reimbursed for the damage and if
they give you crap you can file a lean waiver and do not pay them becasue of
breech of contract. or you can go to the BBB or you can check with the city and
see if they are even licsnced which will give you great power..a lot of roofers
are fly by night.
It is people like you
what is wrong with society today.
grass seeds cost pennies.
take a chill pill.
and how do you know it is a breech of contract to the OP?
have you seen this contract?
you can shut up now!
somewhere in Ca.
Better Business Bureau? The city will give you great power?
Chuckle, snort, wheeze!
Please, make them stop!
Now, that is just too funny. It is far easier to nail Jell-O to a tree than
to get any relief from shoddy workers.
There are two things every child needs to learn by the age of five years
old. There is no justice in the world, and life is not fair. We are
trained to go to authority figures when Johnny hits us or Mary takes our
doll. We go through life thinking this is the way of things. It seriously
handicaps many adults. You can be right. You can have proof. You can have
a slam-dunk in court. You can get a judgement. Now try to collect.
Life ain't fair, and there is no justice in the world. Deal with it. It
will free up a LOT of time.

the guys that did mine did not know what they were doing and messed up
big time.. i had to get the boss to come out with one of his regular
workes to fix the problems in the roof(alot of people in my area had
problems--hail storm came to town and the flyby night subs followed the
storm and worked for regular companies)....they did not leave anything
on the lawn.. the 7 guys who were working on the roof, each one of them
wanted to be the trash guy(on the ground picking up trash and putting it
in the dumpster...alot cooler than being on the roof working)........
just call up the company and get them to send someone out to pick up the
trash, the lawn will come back in about one week or two......
