Return to Installation
Return to Forum
During the course of having new metal roofing installed, the contractor removed vinyl siding around the roof perimeter. I understand that this was done so that new flashing could be installed.
However, the contractor is refusing to reinstall the siding. He said that it was industry standard for the homeowner to have to pay an additional contractor that specializes in siding to reinstall it.
He also stated that installing siding was beyond his crews scope of knowledge. So, is it current industry standard for a roofing contractor to remove siding and not reinstall it? I might also add that the siding is less than 6 months old.
This really comes down to contract law and what the contract specified.
From my perspective, though, re-installing or re-attaching the siding is not unusual.
