Hello, and thanks in advance for the help.
My knowledge and information is based on 5 roof quotes I’ve received over the last 9 months. When I purchased my home in the Los Angeles area, the inspector notified me that I needed to replace the roof. It’s been 12 months since then and we’ve had one decent sized leak. We’re ready to move ahead with replacing the roof.
Today I have a low pitch roof, a low enough pitch where it’s nearly impossible to have a roof with shingles. Total roof sqft is ~3,000 sqft (on a 2,100 sqft house + garage). Currently, I have an asphalt/gravel roof. 3 roofers suggested replacement with modified bitumen, 1 suggested TPO, 1 roofer suggested spray on. Bitumen prices were $22-26k, TPO is $21k, not sure what spray on was. You can’t see the roof well from the street, so while I don’t want it to be hideous, a little ugliness is not the end of the world.
Any suggestions on how to proceed (I’m sure it’s difficult without seeing the roof)? Thanks for your time either way.
