My roofer had a worker that accidently stepped through the roof of my cathedral ceiling living room. He had someone patch it and he retextured just the patch area. He then painted the whole ceiling and it still shows. Your eye goes straight to it when you walk in the door. The worker he had to patch it said it was where there was over spray with the texture. I feel he should retexture the whole ceiling. HEarlier he said he would not do it. I told him if it showed we would have a problem, but I was willing to try it. I have not paid him. I am just sick. Is he responsible to make it right? How do I make him make it look right? What is the code of conduct here? Please help!

Im sorry I just gotta be razzing you here.
He had a worker step thru your roof,why would anyone order a person to do this?LOL
Just kidding he is totally responsible unless of course this is what was in the work order to do.
Does he have insurance?Did he show you that he did?If he does then it should be done by anyone that can do this and insurance of his will pay.You can file a claim at your local court house to make him pay for this to be done,by way of going to court.
Did you call him about this?Did you already pay him?If not then you hold back the amount it would cost to be fixed,go get some estimates from someone who does this.It sounds like he tried to do good on this,without screwing you over.Some people will give you some money back for this or pay to get it fixed,in the long run it is basically up to him if you already paid him in full,courts take time and can't make him pay the damages but it will always say he owes it to you,they don't make him pay.Im sorry but this is the truth good luck maybe he will be a nice guy.
Ive spilled paint on someones roff once and I had to pay out $640.00 for it to re-done,but I am a nice guy.Hope things work out.
