Flat Roof Replacement Quote Questions
I have a 600sq ft flat roof, which has a black asphalt top and is leaking, needs replacement. I live in South Louisiana where it is hot, but it is winter now and now is when the job will be done.
I have a couple quotes from contractors, when I looked into it, they were quoting different ways of putting on the roof. I will list them here.
1. Remove/replace roof with a new SBS modified granual surface built up roofing system with new aluminum perimeter trim. Remove debris, no woodwork is included (No mention of any guarantee!) I believe this is the roll down kind of bitumen roof, it does not state it. $4,925
2. Remove/replace roof roof, instal 20 year type modified bitumen grandule surface roof ,black or white, nerw aluminum gravel guard glashing. Materials and labor guaranteed 2 years ====> upon questioning this guy, it is not the roll down bitumen roof. It includes nail base sheet, 2 ply mop type Fiberglass felt, hot tar, mud bit, hot tar (I think in that order from bottom up). $1,875
3. Similar to #2: remove/replace, stallin roof with organic base with membrane which are 2ply fiberglass felt mop down, modified bitumen mop down, gravel guards. This is a 20 year roof, guaranteed 12 years labor and materials $2,575
The guys in #2 and #3, say that roll down multiply bitumen doesn't work in this south louisiana climate, and they don't want to torch anything it appears. #1 is on vacation so I can't call him.
Do you guys know what I should do? I clearly have 2 different types of roofs being quoted it seems, I don't know where to go.
