This reminds me of when I first started doing this 16 years ago. We were doing plenty of new houses then and some were high pitches and 40+ square. I thought....just wait till these homeowners need a new roof. I bet it will be $25K or more.
Wait till demand for quality work comes back and wages increase. These houses will cost double that for a new roof.
Then when the houses got done, the only thing that increased was materials.
theres a lot of things that go into a bid. Do you know for a fact it is the same sq foot on the roof? Same pitch? Same valleys? skylights? Maybe they can't back the truck next to the building for easy tear off. Maybe his best hand quit and now he only has slow retards working. Theres a million reasons for 2 different houses to have 2 different prices in 2 different decades
only thing you can do at this point is shop around and compare prices.
