i hired a roofer to repair holes cut in the wrong places in my roof by the previous roofer. He is using small pieces of OSB, about 9" by 18" to patch the holes. I told him I understood that any patch must span at least 3 roof rafters. I told him not to proceed to put new roofing on my house until the roof decking is properly repaired. He did not follow my instructions and instead put my brand new roof right over the tiny patches he inserted. When I came home from work on a rainy day and saw him doing this I told him to leave my property. Now he refuses to finish the roof. He took away all the bundles of shingles not yet used and took away all the remaining materials and told me he would not return.
What do I do now? My roof is only half completed and there is new roofing over the patches that I do not believe are properly repaired.
Does the International Residential Code (IRC) 2018 require patches to be of a minimum size? Can anyone give me a recommendation? Or tell me what you would do? I do not have any relatives to go to for help and our municipal inspectors have been passing every roof without looking at the roof. They do not provide help. What can I do? 4 days of rain are forecast and I am very worried.
Thank you for any help you can give.
