Within a month prices went from 2.46 to 4.97 and then back down to around $3/gallon.
That's not a shortage. That is price gouging. They all know it and they all knew it was coming.

The difference is that the Contractor is not insuring anything. The insurance company is insuring this roof for a fee (premium MADE by them). Maybe they should not have insured it.

We have redone roofs again within weeks because of hail damage.

The way most stormers will tell you, "just sign here, I'll get you a free roof".

If there was hail on it that is big enough to...

I would think if they force all companies to have employees, prices would ultimately go up. IMO, the sub sub game is what keeps these trades in the gutter. We cannot compete price wise with...

Wait till these companies get smart and sue for loss of business caused by entrapment. This entrapment is also being used to make money.

Says who? I don't think Hardie has even been out long enough to make a statement like that. I don't think it will last 30, 40 , or 50 years myself.
