I’m new here but many years ago I put myself through college as a hot asphalt roofer up in the thumb area of Michigan. I worked on a crew of mostly Indians from the Kettlepoint reservation in Ontario, Canada - great bunch of guys.
Anyway, my question relates to shingle availability. We are about to re-roof our ten year old log home that has a low-end 3 tab on. I want to use GAF Grand Sequoia but cannot get them in Sage Green. Nobody stocks them, the distributors can’t seem to get me a reliable answer on when they would be delivered, and I’ve seen prices that range - no kidding - over 50% difference per square.
I wrote to GAF about availability…no answer. All I can say is this is not the way you sell shingles or win customers. I am very discouraged and, worse, can’t find another shingle that makes SWMBO happy.
Any ideas? Any reason for the months of waiting GAF seems to expect you to accept? I’m not a whiner, just a homeowner looking for a good product and a roof that will outlast me.
