Here's proof of how screwguard works
OK, We get a job to go repair some soffit and fascia. dettached garage. roll roofing on a flat roof addition. once we get the soffit down we can see that the roof decking is also pretty rotten in spots. From above the roofing appeared in fair shape, no visible holes or damages.
So, we make the call back into the bid desk. tell them found hidden damage, need more money. I figure the new work to be $300. While I'm on hold I get a brain fart. When asked what I need I say $375. I'm put back on hold while they check the "estimator software". They come back with $325. But the rep is kinda tentative when saying the amount, like they are unsure that will fly. I ask "is that what the estimator came up with, you don't sound very sure of yourself." Am told, yeah that's all I can approve.
Since its still above my original estimate - I say, OK we'll do it for that. Send me an email confirming.
Get this, I get the email...it says your are approved for $380!!!
Which, I bet, is what the estimator spit out in the first place. Since I have the email, I'll be invoicing for the $380
