Got Roof bids, got questios
I am replacing my wood shake shingle roof with architectural shingle. I got four bid that range from $18,300 to $23,500. I need to examine them closely though some give more detaail than others. A few questions: Three of the four specidied 15lb felt and one 30 lb felt. What is the difference? should I have concern about using 15 lb? (I am in st. louis if that makes a difference)Is there much of a cost difference? I have copper valleys and like the look. One contractor said he should be able to reuse or, if not, replace at $30/ft. The others discouraged or said, given the difference in shake v. shingle thickness, probably wouldn't work. One specifies new drip edge and I don't think that is in the other or just not spelled out. I believe all would replace vents and new flashing. Anything I should pay attention to?
