re: FYI for Ida victims: Roof-Tarp and Water Intrusion info for the next few days
True standing seam is a great option. We do a pretty good bit of it on commercial/ municipal jobs. There are a number of people that do it well in BR on houses. I would call a supplier and get a couple of names they know are good and get quotes from them. Also my personal opinion is I don’t like the standing seam that has the two roller marks in the flat section b/t the ribs. To me true standing seam is smooth b/t the ribs

Can you explain to me how this works? Insurance company is giving me $19,000 for new roof. I have Roofer A dealing directly with me who wants to do it for $11,000 (labor and materials, dumpster, synthetic underlay, Tamko shingles). Then I have Roofer B who laughed and said, “insurance is low-balling you. The synthetic underlay alone that our company will put on your roof is more than $11,000 just for the material. Pay us your hurricane deductible and we’ll take over your claim for you and get you covered for a 50-year Owens Corning roof plus all new soffit, fascia and gutters.”
Roofer A is some local licensed roofer from Metry. Roofer B Company is Fortune 500 company CMR

In a normal situation, the deductible should be all you owe to the contractor. What I have noticed with this storm, since there was so much damage with all parts of the home, the insurance is pulling deductible money out of everything that needs fixing/replacing. The roofer should not get the full deductible. What we are doing just taking the rcv for the roof and that’s it. Some of the deductible will be included in that.

To reference something earlier, we do ask to sign a contract and use the numbers the insurance gives. It’s honestly the easiest way for everyone. The only time we send in for a supplement/more money is if the insurance left something off the breakdown whether it be a mistake or intentional or if the insurance isn’t pay the avg or At least close to the avg per sq at the current market value. So for example, stout mentioned earlier the avg is around $383 so if the insurance comes back and is only paying $310 we are going to call them out on their bs and request a supplement to come closer to the avg

Lastly, IF you go with either of those companies, you don’t want Tamko or Owens Corning. You want Atlas. If they try and jack your price up because it’s atlas, hit me up. We only use atlas, synthetic felt, and ice and water in your valleys vs valley metal.

Eh, synthetic felt is average $2 more per square than 15# "tar paper".

Everyone as of right now should be using synthetic felt. As you can see, the cost is now in line with the old school stuff, so dont take it as an "upgrade".

Ice and water shield in the valleys....also not an "upgrade", just SOP these days. $75 for a 65ft roll vs. $35 for a 10ft piece of valley metal.....

All of the architectural shingles are damn near the same these days and everyone offers a 50 year or "lifetime" product warranty that you will never use. That is to cover defective material and that usually shows within the first 30 days of install.

These people will act like they have the new latest and greatest shite. They are all selling the same thing and all pimping the same labor crews back and forth to put it on your house.

couv, does your outfit do flat TPO roofing and clay tile?

One of these national companies, CMR Roofing & Construction, was canvassing my new orleans neighborhood after the storm. They offered to do a free inspection, so I took the guy up on it even though I was under the impression at that time my roof had weathered it just fine, as there was no frank water intrusion throughout the storm....

He did a relatively brief inspection but noted some soft spots on the TPO and some evidence of water intrusion into the attic. Quickly came to conclusion that I would qualify for a new roof, wanted their company to handle the claim, sign their contract etc etc. Not that the guy was dishonest, but it all came at me pretty quickly so wanted to take a step back and get another opinion.

I reached out to a local company that came highly recommended to come do an inspection, and they have not followed up with me and must be slammed. Now I'm thinking about circling back to the first guy, but still a little apprehensive about signing a contract with this non-local company and having them handle the claim.

Yes and no on the shingles. The real difference is in the warranty. Reason we put up Atlas vs the others, if something were to happen and shingles are defective, they will replace material and labor. I don’t know about some of the other but I know for sure that Owens Corning will not pay for the labor.
