Hail damage on 3-tab roof. Insurance is covering. I signed and said that I would use the company in exchange for them working with the insurance company to get the claim covered. 16.3 squares between the house (~13 squares) and the shed (~3 squares).
I was surprised how much the contractor wants for the upgrade to architectural shingles (GAF HDZ). I was expecting maybe $20/square extra.
They want $1900, which works out to $116/square. They said that it’s due to extras need to get the GAF “Golden Pledge” 50 warranty: applying 3 feet of Grace (instead of 1.5’ required by code), cutting and installing a Snow Country roof vent, using purpose-build starter and ridge shingles.
They said that the synthetic underlayment is $650, or another $40/square, which is also necessary to bump up from the 30 year to the 50 year warranty.
Am I getting taken for a ride? I’m fine with paying good money for good work, but these costs seem really high. Thanks.
