Which would you recommend?

Thanks for your help.

Get bids from at least 3 competing contractors, it appears you took 2 bids from the same company.

Thanks. Yes, the two bids are from the same company. Will try to get more bids.

The question unanswered with those bids is How much will additional deck replacement cost? SQ/SF price…

Thanks for pointing this out. I will ask for this information.

I am also waiting for another quote to come soon.

You are the boss, if you have any questions, ask them. If you sign the contract, make sure everything is in writing. Once you sign the contract the roofer is in control.

If you don’t have the app called Nextdoor, I recommend you download it as it is free and you can get referrals from your neighbors that have used roofers on their own homes.

It has many other benefits besides this as well.

Thanks, I will get the Nextdoor app. The roofing company that gave me the quotes was referred to me by a friend who had good experience with them.
