Roofing Contractor Accused of Inadequate Work After Roof Fails a Village Inspection Test — A roofing contractor was hired to put a new roof on a residential home, which entailed tearing off two layers of shingles from the old roof, replacing rotting plywood, and installing new shingles. When a village inspector came to inspect the roof, he walked on it and claimed that it did not feel firm but instead felt “soft and springy.” The inspector erroneously concluded that the roofing contractor did not correctly nail the new plywood to the beams, and the roof failed the village inspection. This caused the homeowner to file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), and we represented the roofing contractor at an informal disciplinary conference. We explained to the IDFPR that the materials and span of the plywood used in the installation of the roof are what caused it to feel “soft and springy” when the inspector walked across it, due to the fact that the plywood was only 3/8 inches thick and the trusses were 24 inches wide. The village inspector came back a second time, and the roof passed the inspection. We were able to prove that the roofing contractor’s work met all professional standards, and the IDFPR closed the file with no discipline imposed on the roofing contractor.
