    Okay, here's an update:

    Another technician came, from a reputable company, and at first I let him do his thing without mentioning the other contractor's qualms about the roof. When he came down,...

    I have to admit that this crossed my mind. I just trust the other guys more, but I guess you are correct, that the contractor is just trying to be thorough and not put himself in legal danger. Any...

    Beenthere,

    Thank you for the answer. I did notice that the house was one or two degrees cooler. Does this mean that in the hot season it will heat the air, causing the AC to come on sooner too?...
