Huge roof misunderstanding issues
Well I want it to point this one out there for everyone, because I have a feeling something is not right when roof replacements come out. A typical roof replacement (tile,shingle, flat) can cost between depending on measurements 10 - 30 k. here is the issue we are been forced to run the entire decking on CE, then the roofers they never replace all decking, because it makes sense they will only replace what's rotten up to 100 sf or so. the hardest part and the point of all this is. if you only replace 5 sheets of decking by the time you run your CE, You will no have enough to cover for the cost of the replacement. Then nationals want you to run the entire thing, then to cut you when everything is completed and inspection is pass. because you did not replace all decking. I have spoken to many roofers and replacement of all decking is an option but it will cost a lot more than a regular replacement were only up to 5 sheets are included. So this means Cost estimator is not a useful tool to run roof replacements because by only running 5 sheets even with the rest of components you will not have enough to complete the repair, unless you run the entire roof decking replace only what's is rotten and get paid for the entire bid the way you originally submitted.
I want opinions here.
thank you .
