The local roofing company owner came out and checked my roof leak and said he can’t give a price till he tears it apart. That did not take long.
Tile roof. The leak was in a tile valley, totaling maybe a square or so in area. He sends out his 2 workers the next week. They work for just under 6 hours, including a l o n g lunch and then a long break. The next day they came back to cement the tiles. That was for 1 hour and 5 minutes. Materials used were tar paper and tile cement.
I believe in paying a fair wage, paying for material and all overhead, and a profit for the owner. The bill I was sent was for “$4,935.00 Repair Tile Valley on Roof as Proposed.”
My question is how do I say to the owner that the price is outrageous, and help him figure a fairer price?
Thanks for any help.
