My house needs a new roof, this is the largest co$t upgrade/ maintenance type work to be done that I haven't taken on myself. I've uninstalled and installed roofing before for other people, but I just don't wanna do it anymore and having the right people come out I can actually have a warranty. The first estimate so far blew me away, maybe I just didn't prepare enough I suppose. So get this, for 32,00ft/sq a complete tear off to the plywood and haul-away, up to 3 sheets (4'x8') included for any repairs needed, conversion to pitch vent, new silicon boots for vents, new flashing all around, fiber material barrier with 24" rubber liner around edge, 'W' steel valley treatments, seamless aluminum gutters with down spouts and addition of 12" sun tunnel....
Now that's including 35% worth of discounts applied, I'd push for more if I chose this company.
Looking online at what the average rates are for my area via www.homewyse.com the numbers work out, besides the cost of the house this will be the most expensive thing I've ever purchased. It has a true 100% cost covered warranty through the manufacturer, GAF and the installer is certified as their installer, using their own employees and no subcontractors so the risk of a lien due to shady practices and paying medical for an accident to a worker is zero. I have 3 more installers coming to bit, but question is; Have you replaced a roof before and is my first estimate total crack pipe?
