I had a new metal roof installed at the end of August and first of Sept. last year. I have a signed and dated five year workmanship warranty on the roof from the contractor. As the coverage was approaching one year, the contractor died. His wife has laid everyone off and closed the business. Is my warranty still covered?...Read More

I have a five year warranty on the workmanship of a metal roof. A few weeks after it was finished the new roof leaked around the chimney staining the ceiling in the house. I texted the contractor and told him about it. He said he had the flu but he would make sure it would be fixed when he got better. A few weeks later he sent one of his guys to fix it. The roof is gray and the flashing around the chimney is gray, everything is gray. It was repaired with black caulking. I texted the gentlemen again and asked why did he use black because the roof is gray. He texted me back saying that it was just temporary, it was done before the cold set in. He said they were going to refresh the flashing. I was satisfied that it would be done in the spring. Then covid came, I'm 64 with three underlying health conditions. I didn't want to be around any of them so I didn't rush the job. I eventually assumed that the guy had forgotten about it. I still waited hoping everything would get better. I finally decided in August to contact him because things were not going to get better and it had been long enough. Remember, I have a five year warranty, signed and dated by him and a text saying it was a temporary fix. I found out that the man who owned the company and who signed and dated the contract had died and his wife had layed off the workers and closed the business. There is a lot of other people besides me who had that warranty. His daughter, who worked in the office for him is refusing to help me. Again, the leak started a few weeks after the roof was installed. The leaking was stopped but I don't like it being repaired in black with everything else gray. Is the five year warranty still in affect if he died and the business is closed?...Read More
