I called the owner of the roofing company and told them they had put the wrong tiles on the roof.
When we needed a new roof on our house, we knew exactly what we wanted. We had seen some roof tiles, and we had looked at metal roofs. Neither of these looked nice to me. My husband told me I was being picky, but I had seen some roofing materials I thought were nice. I just couldn’t remember what it was called. I remembered they were Shake tiles, but they made them from synthetic materials. I liked the looks of them, and I could pick different colors. I asked the roofers if they could purchase synthetic shake tiles in the deep grey, and they said they could. They were knocking on the door right before I was heading out for work. The roofer was saying they had the tiles on the truck, and wanted to know if it was okay to start on the roof when no one was home. When I got home that afternoon, the roofers were gone, but there was a problem. The synthetic Shake tiles I ordered were not what they put on the roof. They were a deep grey, but they looked like the tar paper style tiles my mom and dad had on their roof. I called the owner of the roofing company and told them they had put the wrong tiles on the roof. He said they were deep grey, and they were synthetic. I reminded him I had specifically asked for synthetic shake tiles, and not the tiles he had installed. I wanted the roofer to come to the house and remove these and put the others on the house. I knew it would be a loss for the roofer, but it wasn’t the roofing I paid for.
