Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney.

Is the roof still under warranty with the manufacturer? In other words, is the manufacturer saying it is no longer under warranty?

Thank you for the additional information. So the three parties that could be responsible are the insurer due to some damage to it, the installer due to improper installing or the manufacturer due to bad material.

Since the installer and insurer are claiming they are not liable (usually this would be the case since no one wants to be liable), then let's see what the manufacturer says. Keep on the manufacturer. If it does not do anything, you may have to file a lawsuit against all three.

We can discuss this more if you want to do so.

If you have further questions or you need further assistance, just let me know.

If not, please remember to rate my answer between 3 to 5 stars without any additional costs to you. That is how I get credit for answering your question. Best regards.
