Yeah they got that right. I was more than double their estimate but HO came out of pocket to get it done right. He was by far one of the nicest guys I've ever done work for.

At least it came out nicely.

Isn't it a treat when you get those customers.

Oh well ! I got up this morning, drank my coffee, and actually went out and did some work, funny how you have had all day to talk about me. Lets see, where do I start. No. 1 I can load up a truck of guys for 10.00 per hour at the local convenient store, same as you can, let them do all the work go home and fuss at everyone else on the internet all day and then have the nerve to go take the homeowners check. How do you sleep at night?

Most Contractors are that way, but I, for one do all my own work.

Reroofing over old shingles


When I work on a customer's house I do it the same way I would do my own, No to be quite honest, I do it better, I check everything and if they tell me they have a leak, I know immediately they probably have wood damage, neither plywood, nor OSB can take very much water, before it at least buckles. I don't charge them all that much to replace either sheeting nor even to replace a rafter if needed and when I am done their roof is perfect and most times when I am done it is better than it was originally built, cause most builders hire guys like you. I sleep very, very well at night.

And I will also add, I never, ever have a shortage of work. Certainly no unemployment lines for me. I get up every morning, drink my coffee, and go fix what needs fixing. I don't advertise, but I guess word gets around that I am the best and it's amazing how quick customers will somehow find you when they know you are good. I was at work today, not here on the internet.

Hope your WC is paid up to pay for that fracture you just incurred patting yourself on the back

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Dude, start your own thread on how great you are. No one here really cares and it has nothing to do with the topic.

God where are all these new freaks coming from on these forums? Is it a full moon or something?

So, now you are a roofer?

IMO, all credibility just went out the window.

Stinks that you don't charge enough for a sheet of plywood that you can't work a normal Monday through Friday work week or at least have all your employees do it do you can take the day off.
