Is this suppose to be new?

I hired a contractor to re-roof the whole roof with new shingles, and to install all the kitchen exhaust vent, bath exhaust vent, and soil pipe flashing. But how come this thing on the photo doesn't seem new. I can see old screw hole with rusty mark. And there's new screw drilled into new screw holes.

OMG I reached my limit and can't upload any more photos. How do I delete some old photos?

https://imgur.com/a/vIraEQE On the exposed part at the bottom there are about 5 new screw on it. But there are also about 5 empty screw hole with rust on it, seems like old rusty screw have been removed.

Very hard to see detail thru a window screen.
If that is a ventilation fan..... it would be reused.

It all comes down to what you agreed on. We cant see your contract. And then some language can be confusing. "Remove and replace" can mean remove existing and replace existing. (Put it back on). Whereas most people would think it means remove existing and replace with NEW.

It does look like a fan. They typically get reused.

If it doesn't leak, and you can't see it. Forget It.

Well he check marked installation of kitchen and bath exhaust vents. But if it's already installed, that doesn't necessarily mean "replace with new". Also we still dont know exactly what's pictured.

As I said, it could simply mean remove and replace (put existing back in). Technically, the object is removed when shingles are torn off. Then installed as the roof is being shingled. If nothing specifically states "replace with new", I dont think you paid for new.

Usually just the vent covers are replaced as they are thin and hard to remove to re-use.
An exhaust fan would be an expensive device to replace. That would be something that if replacement was necessary..... you'd have a separate line item listed for it.

"it could simply mean remove and replace (put existing back in). If nothing specifically states "replace with new", I dont think you paid for new." -XSleeper

I'm not trying to troll u. But if It doesn't state "replace with NEW shingle", then does it mean the shingles can be old, and that he just remove old shingles and put existing back on?

Thing on picture is prolly a fan for kitchen and laundry room, but I could be wrong.

We aren't talking about shingles.

You asked us for our opinion and we've given it.
If you don't like what we are saying..... call the roofer and ask him why it wasn't replaced.
