I was under the impression its okay to have family members/close friends re-roof my house and I was told I didn't need a permit ... these guys turned out to be something other than friends though! They requested the last payment for materials then left without finishing the work- they even left their equipment on my roof and its been over a year! I've called and written and get no response. I got estimates from other roofers who were shocked at the quality of work & said it will cost between 2 and $3,000 to fix and finish the mess they left behind. And these guys are still doing roofs all over town! Thing is it all looks okay from the ground but NOT so much when you get up top,. Do I have any recourse? .I dont have the money to pay for the job twice! Help! -and thank you.
