First off this site is fantastic! I’ve been reading through alot of old topics and learned alot the last couple months. Thank you to everyone that actively contributes here!
I’m somewhat used to building roofing supplements now, however I need to include some damaged chimney siding and trim in an estimate to send in on a State Farm claim. What are the line items you guys typically use for siding replacement, as well as trim, and paint? Do I request detach and reset only on the siding that must be removed before the damaged pieces can be replaced? I believe it’s fiber cement board with wood trim.
Also we have a dead valley in an awkward section of roof that is currently shingled with step flashing at the sidewall. 1.7:12 I want to request code upgrade to replace it properly. I understand that rolled roofing would be a downgrade. What should I be attempting to install here? EPDM? What should I cite specifically to get this paid for and properly flashed and installed? The siding in this section is rotted wood fiber board and had zero clearance in this dead valley. Removal will also mean it needs replacing, which the homeowner would prefer to have done but at minimal out of pocket expense.
Can anyone give me a rundown on the best way to get this installed and paid for?
