Go to the New Roof Waste Calculation Sheet thread. The new link is there.

Why don’t you simply look in the manufacturers installation guide and the best commercial roofer? Insurance isn’t responsible for best practices.[/quote]
I want to know which type of roofing is good for my house??
The kind that doesn’t leak.
I would love to have that Excel sheet with the calculations you percent in your chat.
what about asking insurance for 10% on drip edge?
Hi do you mind sending me your excel sheet? We are running in to multiple issues with Allstate in particular giving 6% waste and not separating out ridge and starter.
Holy crap most you guys figure tons of waste!!! I rarely have more that like half square of waste. If the square footage is 2013, I’ll order 21 square. If it is 2063, I’ll order 21.33.
So if you have a 60 square hip with 150 ft of valley and 250 ft of hip you’ll have half a square of waste? And your 20 square roof doesn’t have starter and cap? Most 20 square roofs don’t have much trim scrap because they’re so simple. Who cares about 5% on 20 squares anyway, it amounts to nothing. Try doing some real roofs and then come back and tell me about your 1/2 square crap.
I hope if you sell a 2023sq you don’t only charge for 21sq. It’s about calculating waste not how many shingles you use. If our guys do a 21 sq job and bring back 2 sq that means the estimator did a good job and the crew did a good job…a win win
I would greatly appreciate if you would share the excels sheet with me. Sir i have learned a great deal from your post and replies on this forum. Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
