Wouldn't fixing it be considered a new roof?

Hell it's got at least 6 more years before it really needs replaced anyway...


Tell them you would fix the situation but you can't fix stupid

Re: I Got Water Coming In My House...


If the shingles aren't too brittle that wont be too bad a patch job.
Huge waste of money since he'll be needing a new roof in a year anyway, but hey, his money to waste.
If you do wind up patching it, for the pipe you can just cut the base off another pipe collar and slide it on top, assuming its not all rotten around it.

Tell him after repair is completed and you get paid, as a bonus HO will get an umbrella just in case another part of the roof fail.

Re: I Got Water Coming In My House...


Some home owners are very involved and think they know it all. It is our job as roofers to recommend what is necessary to do and then leave it to the owner. What I have done in the past is give two prices. One with a repair and re-roof. Let them decide. I'm sure that you offer a different warranty on each one. Let them see the difference but do not loose the job.

Re: I Got Water Coming In My House...


thats the biggest problem,
A ho needs his roof redone. His roof was done 30 yrs. ago. before an asfault membrane was used. his roof has terracotto tiles (i think thats what you guys call them) that are 70% broken and he has water coming in everywhere. only he wants to replace the ones broken,
1500 my estimate of broke to replace, will never match size of old ones, walked away from the job
