We hired Mr. Francis last November 2012, to replace the roof on our house in Lawton, Oklahoma.  He 'completed' the job in mid January 2013.  We paid Mr. Francis half up front, and the remainder upon completion.  We live in Washington, so could not be on site to supervise the job.  

 

Mr. Francis installed the new shingles over old rotten decking; failed to put on any ridge cap at all.  in one area of the ridge the top row of shingles stop just short of the ridge, and are raising allowing wind and rain under.  Some of the shingles on the ridge are blowing off, already.  He didn't push the flashing down in the valley bottoms leaving up to three inch gaps at the lower end, allowing wind and rain under the shingles. [continued below]....

.....  None of the flashing (valleys, vents, side of house over porch) had been caulked.  Part of the drip edge had been left off.  There are many nail heads exposed and not sealed.  The turbine vents were not locked, so have turned from perpendicular. 

My wife and I came down to Oklahoma to check on our house in Lawton.  We observed the roof was leaking, so called several contractors requesting quotes.  Mr. Francis and one other actually showed up to complete bid request.  Mr. Francis was the only one to actually submit a written bid.  He located the a couple leaks and plugged them till it quit raining. 

Mr. Francis gave us his business card showing he was registered with the state of Oklahoma.  We asked about insurance and bonding, and he assured he was.  We didn't know at the time how to check any of this information  and took him at his word.  Since then we learned about the Oklahoma Construction Industry Board (CIB).  A search on their website revealed Mr. Francis' Registration had expired 30 June 2012.  Now, we have to wonder if he was insured or bonded.
