Not sure if this issue has come up…but I need a roof and one day a couple of guys were in the neighborhood representing a large roofing/siding/windows company. Asked if I wanted to set up a time for someone to give a bid.
Long story short…guy came out and presented the numbers last night to wife and I. If I signed the deal last night…best price was $535/sqaure. If I did not sign…price would go up to $945/square.
I don’t like this type of marketing…so I said…thanks for your time and showed him the door.
Two story colonial (15 squares)
Attached sunroom (5 sq)
Detached garage (8 sq)
Main has has two layers…sunroom and garage one.
Existing asphalt shingles
complete tear off
GAF Timberline 30 year
Drip edge venting and ridge
Some “red” flags other than the “tonight only” pitch. When giving prices…he quoted square foot…I wanted to speak in terms of squares and had to tell him what a square was. Could not tell me what company/manufacturer of drip edge venting they would use.
I have gathered a lot of good information at this site and will be contacting local roofing companies for bids in the next couple of months…this one just confirmed that you have to know what you are doing.
Thank goodness for the internet!
