What would you charge?

Here is a roof repair we completed. What would you have charged? And I'm not asking for critiques of the workmanship. Just an estimate of what you would have charged to complete this repair.

I tell private party customers missing shingles start at $325 and if it is a valley or chimney, $500. That's on the initial phone call.

I do not warranty any repairs, other than the exact shingles I install. Most people treat roofing like plumbing, the last to touch it is responsible. I make it very clear that I'm not responsible.

I also leave with cash in hand when the repair is complete.

For a national or regional, I'd be upwards of $800.

What I bid doesn't mean that it gets approved...

I've only repaired roofs when a city violation is posted. Otherwise it was typically tarp jobs.

For the future homeowner, you would have been better off to just tar that thing and not touch the shingles. You did more damage than good.

150 bucks, 5 minutes on the roof with a gallon of roofing tar - no warranty.
