I hire home inspector to evaluate roof installation.
But my constructor saying that it has nothing to do with him and he will sue me if I do not pay him. And still refuse to show receipt that will show what kind of shingle he actually install (in contract it should be more expensive life time warranty)
If inspection show incorrect installation and invalid manufacturer warranty as result what are the odd that judge still will say to pay contructor
Does home (roof) inspections by certified inspector valid document for court or is it only for my personal use?
Are there any bright light for me?
I need to pay $250 for inspections, than if i loos court fees and still pay bad constructor $2500 and still have bad
If an inspector says the roof was installed improperly, and will testify on your behalf, you have a fairly good chance of succeeding in small claims case. The Court will not accept an affidavit or a letter from the inspection company.
You have to check your local small claims Court rules. Some small claims courts will accept TWO written estimates as proof of costs to remedy defective work. However, not all courts are the same so you really must check your local rules. If submission of written estimates is not sufficient, you will have to pay an expert to testify in court for you and this could quickly get expensive and cost prohibitive even if you are 100% right.
