Just wanted to have someone take a look at the numbers I have and just confirm whether it is a fair deal.
house is a 2 story colonial.
The guy measured it to be 28 squares with 0% waste. He is GAF Master Elite.
Going with the Timberline 30 year shingle, Deck Armor, 6ft ice guard all around, Snow Country Ridge Vent (148 ft), new gutters all the way around.
Quote comes to $9180
I then wanted to do maybe a lifetime shingle as I dont plan on moving and i am 30, so I figure do it right now.
He quoted that I would need 32 squares which is 12% waste:
Timberline lifetime: additional $1300
Slateline: additional 1252
Capston: additional $1780
I have no idea if these numbers are good or bad. Based on some other quotes it was one of the lower ones, but that doesnt mean anything these days.
I have done a bit of reading on here and many say the GAF Mater Elite doesnt mean much, but I guess it gets me some assurance for 20 years…? Going all GAF I feel I should be covered. The guy seems pretty no nonsense. He tells me the prices are pretty firm as he makes about 10% but he does not monkey around as not giving the best price up front would not be honest. I have no idea if he is just blowing smoke, but I did kind of like him the best. When compared to another master elite quote I got, he was less and the other company actually told me with that price I should go with him. He said the guys does good work…
I have been making myself crazy, lurking here looking for information as well as the rest of the internet. I was planning on finalizing with this guy tomorrow night, but thought to ask for some confirmation on my price before I did. I am in the North East, so we get some sweet weather from snow to rain to hot and humid.
I want to do this right the first time around and I dont want to feel taken, so what do you guys think. If you need any more details, please let me know.
Thanks a lot in advance
