Roof patching

SG is trying to tell me that I should be able to replace 60 SF of shingles(which are on rotten sheeting), replace a cap shingle, and repair a leak around a chimney for the allowable($480 after discount).

Still formulating my response. I didn't call bid desk from site, so they said to go back and call from site with bid. I informed them that they already had my bid, then the response was it was only 60 SF and it should be able to be done within the allowable.

Am I being unreasonable? Home is also about 2 hrs from me. Although the territory that I cover for SG is 1-3 hrs away from me currently. I figure after I send two guys up, materials, mileage, I'll break even at $480.

I'll do it for $480 with your guys and then not pay you. I think I'll make a profit.

I wouldn't go up on a roof for anything less than $1k.

I'll go up, but my margins go up. If it was a good customer I might do it. Otherwise my ladder isn't long enough.

Remind them again that they have your bid and to call you back if that's what they decide to go with.

SG's company song is the hook in Ludacris's "Low."
