THank youI fear it is too late. There is a "3 day right to cancel" for the contract you are describing. So your spouse had the right to cancel this contract, without penalty, during that 3 day window. Since more than 3 days have passed? It is too late to cancel without recourse.If he signed the contract, the roofer can hold him to the contract. Now...if the roofer does not perform as required by the contract ? That could be a basis to cancel the contract. For example, if they promised to have the job done by the end of April and they have not yet started? That could be a basis to void the contract. But if you are asking if he can just cancel because he changed his mind? It is too late for thatThis is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that he can cancel this contract without recourse, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
