I had a roof put on last week, but got a surprise when the invoice came.
I have attached a photo of the extra woodwork done. It is an L-shaped house, so there are 6 corners. Altogether, there is 60 feet of replaced fascia.
I don't have a problem with the $9200 for the shingle roof.
I also don't have a problem with the $55 per sheet of 4x8 plywood for the areas that needed new wood.
I DO have a problem with the 60 feet of fascia trim to replace the rotted corners. What do you think is a fair price for that?
I got 6 internet replies from tradespeople, 1 reply from a metal roofer down the block, and 1 reply from the Pinellas County inspector. All of them felt that the contractor obviously made a mistake in his billing for the fascia.
I dont' want to cheat anybody nor do I want to be cheated. If I had chosen the option to replace all the fascia instead of just the corners, the price of the job would have skyrocketed.
Again, what do you think is a fair price for the extra work done to replace the 60' of fascia? The materials used to replace the fascia were 60 feet
of plain 2x4 and 60 feet of painted 1x6 on top of the plain wood.
