Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Brand new roof installed leaks behind and in front of fascia. One inch over lap was not left on outer edge of roof resulting leaking. There attempts to fix the problem resulted in water puddling on roof edge and Sharpe metal to cut hands on when cleaning gutters and roof still leaks.
Desired Settlement: According to other contractors to repair this issue would require five courses of roofing torn off and brought down to a one inch over lap. If Allied refuses to repair correctly we would like a refund to hire another contractor to have it done correctly.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/08/12) */ Roof installed in Feb of 2013. 4/12 pitch. Dimensional laminated comp roof. Recieved call few months later that water was running over gutter. Gutter is the old 4" style Leaf Guard with metal cap to whih the water is to stick to cap and go into gutter while leafs go over edge of gutter. Owner concerned that water may go behind gutter due to 1/2" roof overhang. We agreed to install a starter metal around eaves of roof to seal back of gutter. In Feb or March of 2014 recieved call that water still running over gutter by back door. We went and checked area. Made some adjustments and asked homeowner to call us if still running over gutter. WE heard nothing until June of 2014 when we recieved phone message from owners son that water was running over gutter and he made several threats. When I got back to office there was a second message demanding that we stay off the property. I called son of owner to discuss the problem. I was informed that since we refused to address the problem ( how can we address problem when we were not notified immediately when our 2nd visit did not stop overflow) We were informed that the roof was incorectly overhung at eave and not exactly ending where old roof had ended. I requested a meeting at the house with owner and son.We met in June. Son berated us on how lousy the roof edge was installed. He would not give me a chance to rreply until owner asked him to listen to me. I suggested that we water test the area. All agreed. We ran water on section of eave and it poured over gutter. I inspected gutter closely and found it covered with algea and dirt 1/8 to 1/4" deep. (there was no metal exposed metal to catch the water as explained above). I cleaned gutter. we ran water again. Water went into gutter as designed. Son still wanted a 1" overhang, so we tested putting metal extension at different exposures. Son liked when 1" out from fascia. Checked cupping complaint. Found gutter was 1/4" above roof deck in some ares and then went down to 1+" below deck near drains. I installed a filler in small cupped area and it leveled roof.Owner and son agreed that we should put a metal extension hanging 1/2" past edge of comp, around house. We agreed to do this. History Gutter overhang question. On many of roofs we have installed that were going to switch to Leaf Guard guttere the gutter people told us to hold back the roofing way less that usuall (1.5") That is why we used the short overhang. After talking to owner and son, I contacted the gutter company we use alot. They said the gutter works best with short overhang that exposes more metal to catch water. I contacted a company that install Leaf Guard gutters. They toild me that the 1/2" overhang was good. They said longer overhangs may hamper gutters effectiveness. I calle the maion Leaf Guard office and talked to their technition. She said eave as installed should work fine. Said 1' overhang was pushing the maximum exposure that would work. I contacted second son and gave him all the info I had. I told him Leaf Guard would send out their head technition to evaluate the question. This son informed me that the owner would not allow the Leaf Gurad peopl to his house as he had a major disagreement with them several years ago. We installed 1 side of metal extensions. I recieved call from first son to terminate all work and stay away. I contacted 2nd son . He met with owner and fisrt son and friend. They decided they wanted 2-4 rows of roofing removed and extended to give 1" overhang. We were informed they did not want us to do job. They wanted to hire anoither company to do extension. We calculated cost for us to do extension would be $747. We informed owners 2nd son that we would pay $1,900 for the work. They could hire whoever they wanted and do the edge however they wanted. We paid them the $1,900 3.5 weeks ago.
