How can I assess damage done to my house through builder's admitted poor workmanship? They removed roof over existing house before a weekend of torrential rain (2 weeks ago). Rain poured into attic, through new Andersen windows which were not yet finished, onto drywall and hard wood in nearly all rooms. (these were furnished existing rooms, not the rooms being added). Will I have mold, mildew problems forever? Structural damage?

I hope your builder has good insurance. Either way, maybe you could get your own insurance adjuster to look at it.

Yes, he does and promises to make good. My problem is getting someone to come out and assess the damage. Everyone seems to be too busy. Any ideas? Also worried about long term effects.

No ideas, other than take lots of photos and make notes of EVERYTHING.
