I’ve been reading up on asphalt roof options to be sure I hire the right contractor and get good results without paying too much. Now that I’ve got a few quotes I have some questions.
One roofers quote includes two items I’m not sure about:
First he recommends re-wrapping the fascia boards which are currently wrapped in aluminum. No one else suggested this. Does that sound right?
Second, he says that since I have solid vinyl soffits there is a an excellent chance that there is some wood covering the soffit also and that would have to be removed when the vented soffit is put in. Does this sound right? It seems like no one is able to tell until they pull of the vinyl soffit.
His estimate is the highest and is about 18% higher than the next bid even after I called and asked him why at which point he lowered it by 8%
Another roofer suggested a vented drip edge as a lower cost alternative. Do these work well?
