Roof repair per guidelines

When you guys are doing roof repairs, how picky are you on doing repairs under the allowable? If there is an active roof leak and it can be fixed under $600, that makes sense. Also, any missing shingles, replace on the spot. How about tar around chimney or vents that looks very old and cracked, but no noticeable leaks? How about improperly installed(or missing) drip edge? Do you guys still repair them if they aren't causing an active leak?

WIth discounts, liability, no roof repair should be done for $600.

You don't think you could get a professional roofing company to be on your roof for thirty min putting tar around a vent or two for $480?

Not here in CT... First I'd have to get one of the Prof. roofers to return a call. Then running the job thru my books... Gotta make a few bucks.
It's all in the pic's and bid it as over allowable.

You said professional roofing company in the same sentence as you said putting tar around a few vents.

So IMO, no, you can't get a professional roofing company for $480 to tar around some vents.

Some companies, like Safeguard, only pay per ft, the area that is being repaired. Try telling a professional roofer to chalk mark an outline over each shingle he replaced and the area that he tarred, then the price per foot that you can afford to pay. They don't pay $480 to tar and patch a chimney and some vents.

We always tarp first. 20X30 tarp is $600.00 then we bid repairs.

I just made $200 tarping a 8'x6' area ... In a few weeks once it goes up and down the ladder a few times they will send me back to remove it and bid to fix then retarp it again...

There you go! That is thinking like a business owner! A repair is a one time shot. Tarping will get you paid multiple times.
