Roof areas measurements from roofing contractors

archyxJuly 30, 2011

So I need to replace my roof on my 50-year-old home. I have got 4 bids from different roof contractors. Just now I sat down and compared these 4 bids and found out that their measurement area are all over the places, from 2200 sf to 2900 sf. How can this be?

What is your experience with roofing contractors?

Pretty darn easy to find the sq footage of your roof. Go out and do it yourself and pick the company that came the closest

Probably from errors in roof pitch estimating from the ground.
