Hello, you may remember me from last year. I had the horrible installation problems. After trying to repair the problems, with no success. I have decided to have the entire roof replaced.
My question is that. A very reputable roofing company wants to tack on an extra $1400 to the price of the roof for the 30 year laminated shingles. Of all of the estimates, that I have received, the other contractors only charge for the added cost of the shingles which is $500. The added $1400 does not sound right.
They are insisting that the 30 year shingle is more difficult to install than the standard 20 year asphalt shingle. Other contractors have told me the opposite that the 30 year laminated shingle is easier to install. Who is telling the truth?
I am also concerned about the estimate that I received. My neighbor received an estimate from this same company which is $1200 less. How do I negotiate this contract? I like this company because they are the most reputable as for as warranty, license and quality in this city.
I think that because they know that I have been burned and they are trying to make a quick dollar. Comments welcome. Thank you.
