Long time lurker, first time poster. Dare I say that I am an insurance adjuster located in Ohio. I see two layer tear off, ice shield, felt, 3 tab shingles, w/ ice guard and drip running between $210 and $220 per square including dump.
This assumes no steep or height, single story type ranch home with a standard chimney, a couple stacks and hat vents.
Costs are going to increase with more details such as metal work in valleys and around dormers. Hip roofs with ridge shingles or caps will increase costs as well.[/quote]
are you going to raise those prices by 12-15% with the nationwide industry increase announced from the manufactures effective feb. 1st 2008? or are those the same prices you have been giving for 3 years, while at the same time we have gotten 5 increases from our suppliers and insurance companies?
i dont want to sound like a dikk…but, i can just barely make a profit at $250/sq with a 1 layer tear straight ranch. ice & water and ridge caps are automatic in my price.
if i do a lay over (which i dont like to) i would be around your price.[/quote]
I would bet that being in NY that there would be a substantial difference in cost. East coast is just more expensive which drives labor rates and overhead costs higher.
We get pricing updates every 3 months that change too keep up with the market. Frankly, I’m in constant contact with the local roofing supply houses to ensure that material costs are current due to the constant flux and change in petroleum.
If a material cost is off, I change it and notate exactly where the price change came from.
No one in my company questions it if you sight your source. Unfortunately, you get some not so bright people in my industry who say “this is what the computer says” and leaves it at that.
