I posted about a year ago regarding my leaky roof. It's leaking along the side of my house, behind the fascia boards for about 20 feet (only 4-5 areas are dripping, but I understand that it could be coming from anywhere at this point). Here is the post from last year:
Drip Edge Leak -- Bad installation? Something else?
I have three bids, and two different methods that the roofers want to do:
1) Bid #1 and #2 were similar in price (~$3500). These two contractors want to remove a few inches from the top of my fascia boards (25 feet on both sides of the house), remove the dutch gutter and install a new traditional gutter system (no more dutch gutter) along with new hardware (downspouts).
2) Bid #3 was for $1500, and sounded like he was going to try and pinpoint the exact location of the leak. He was going to replace 5 rows of shingles along one side of my house along with the felt, and replace the dutch gutter material with new modified bitumen.
They all utilize union workers and the estimators had 20+ years of experience under their belts. I'm leaning towards bid #1/2 because it sounds like a long-term solution, but I'm weary that they may not fix the leak, whereas bid #3 was attacking the leak directly.
