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.:laughing:

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.

My estimator is coming up at $458.70. This does not include drip edge, ice guard, vents, steep pitch surcharge, braces, harness usage OR discounts, mileage and other P&P BS issues.

That does not include any chimney leaks neither....just the repairs with the shingles.

Not sure about your area, but for me 250-300 of that would go towards getting the permit and inspection fees covered (depending on the city).

Couple of questions.

Will you be working over 16' above ground?

What is the pitch of the roof?

What type of shingles are needed? 3 tab, architectural, wood shake etc...

How big is the rotted sheathing area? WHat type of sheathing is currently there and how thick?

Is it only the sheathing that's rotted or is there other possible damage to the rafter(s) / truss(es)?

Are they asking you to replace a single cap shingle? I'm assuming you mean ridge cap.

What are they expecting for the chimney repair? Slap on some roofing mesh and cement, flashing replacement, etc?

Obviously, drive time????????????

All these things effect the cost.

It is a specific trade that most states require licensing to complete. Also you need, depending on your state, specific insurance as well.

For me, I've roofed four or five roofs back when I did residential construction and I feel the risk is not worth the reward. For me, if a national wants me to go on a roof then I will need $1k just to pull my ladder out.

I also am not a fan of heights.

My workers comp DOES NOT cover roofing. Seriously it don't.

Thats what I tell the nats. And that they need to get a licensed and insured for roofing contractor.
