HA, ha....now that's a funny story...
Yes, once again ... Big Dave is right.
We have a Drywall division within our company, and it ALWAYS ruffles our nerves when customers, with little or no experience, tell us what materials they want us to use (even tho we started 22 years ago). It's not a pride thing at all, it's that we know what works, and what doesn't work, also what things are not worth the extra time and money to spend on and try to use, etc.
We just dumped a roofing job because the HO, who's only experience with roofing products is what he has researched on the internet, gave us a list of what he wants us to use and HOW HE WANTS US TO INSTALL IT.
Nice enough guy, but, we know how to install a quality roof with various manufacture's products....
Red flags = we would rather not do the job.
- with the price of copper going through the roof, that's my 82 cents -
