    I beleive you have to be able to show intent for it to be a crime...

    Unless you are talking about a Capitol offense...still intent and the degree is very important...

    Well, it is not a crime. But it certainly is a tort. One thing sure, some lawyers are going to make out.

    Common sense would say that they took the guys roof off, and have an absolute obligation to make it right. They are arguing that they took off a 20 year old roof, and will have to replace it with a brand new roof. Kind of like saying that if someone dents your fender, they should only have to put back an old, worn fender.

    I think the only argument is over who should pay the deductable...which could be hefty...

    Definately a tort...

    100% the roofing contractor's fault. They will likely pay for everything plus an inconvience fee to the owner.

    The homeowner should (rightfully so) make out on the deal.

    Do you need a permit if you do work by mistake?
