    (I vaguely remember a landlord complaining to tenant that he doesn't want roof penetration (was not related to HVAC installation).)

    might the landlord (the customer) object to roof penetration?

    if the HVAC tech is considering doing roof penetration, isn't it a good idea to check with the customer first to see if it's ok with them? let's say that the tech did contact the customer and gave the options and let's say the customer chose no roof penetration. then the job (as seen in the OP) was done right. right? or would you say that the tech should have explained things better and that would have resulted in the customer choosing roof penetration?
    Yes, we get it. You need consent before penetration. #roofslikeitrough

    Absolutely. They may spend a little more for me to do it right but I can sleep at night.

    It's not horrible. Does it cool and/or heat? Might not really want to go through that roof and put up with possible leaks. Plus it would have been somewhat more labor and the place may have been on a half a shoestring budget.

    I guess they could have drilled a hole through the roof and stuffed it through the ceiling, but then you have a roof penetration to worry about.

    How exactly should it have been done?
    Roof penetrations are not a big deal. Just ned the hole and a "Witch's Hat" and contact cement.. Never had a problem.

    Let's just say, I could not leave it that way. No wonder I keep getting out bid on these installs.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    Well, it strikes me as unprofessional to bring up dating and penetration with a customer anyway, but I guess to each their own
