Additional Notes

Complaint: I signed a roofing contract with SJB Construction to tear off old roof and install new roof. The job was done 2 months ago and I paid SJB Construction company per the contract. I later hired a painter to paint outside of my house and the painter found out that the roof flashing was not installed correctly near the chimney and it leaves a 3 inches gap/hole on the roof. This will cause severe roof leaking during the rainy season. I have contacted SJB Construction company for correcting the issue 4 times. The onwer, Mr. Jerry ****** B*****, kept saying he would come in to fix the roof, but they never show up. This is bad business. They should have inspect their work before declaring job done. The contract states that SJB Construction warranties 15 year SJB craftsmanship. Well, they installed the roof 2 months ago and they do not want to come in to fix the error they made.

Desired Settlement: The owner of SJB Construction is aware of this issue and he intentional lie to me 3 times about repair schedules. I do not trust him any more. He need to pay back $300 for me to hire another roofer to inspect and to repair the issue.
