I am putting on a new roof, it is 1/2 way done and there are exposed areas. I need to complete it ASAP or my home will be ruined.
I found a replacement roofer to step in, But the New guy told me I could get in trouble with the county for hiring a replacement.
Is this accurate?
You should check with a local construction attorney or even call your local building department. I am not licensed in Florida so I cannot provide you with any specific information about Florida. However, most jurisdictions will allow the owner to change the name on the permit by fling the appropriate paperwork. Of course you generally cannot allow a new contractor to perform work without a proper permit except in certain emergency situations that a local attorney or the local building department will be able to identify for you.
