Re: Who gets the leftover roofing materials?


There would have been no need for the confusion and the question as to who should keep the leftovers, if the contract does not say so. The homeowners are too dumb to sign the contract which does not spell out the material cost and labor cost separately. Contracts should include the number of shingle pallets and felts (even if extra) that the homeowner is paying for so that there is no confusion at the end who owns them.

My customers aren't dumb, they're smart enough to realize they're paying for an installed roof not a pile of materials. Thanks though, I guess.

Gotta love when a new guy comes in guns blazing and resurrects a 7 year old thread.

Re: Who gets the leftover roofing materials?


Waste is calculated into the job cost, so roofing left over would be the owners. Underlayment and such can be reused but not the roofing, and I wouldn't lug the back breaker with me back home. But that's if the owner asks, otherwise, leave the site clean.

Gotta love drive by posters.

Re: Who gets the leftover roofing materials?


So, how does one determine a "drive-by" poster? I've answered 5 year old threads before because this forum doesn't close them to prevent that... just last week in fact.

amerigo, thanks for your input (answered within hours of becoming a member) even though you were ridiculed for your very first ever post with us... must be a little discouraging to other readers (DIY home owners and pros alike), thinking of becoming a new member. I am sorry to see you treated this way- ---I hope you are not one of the Owners husband or relative... ironic. A Mod should should be along soon to remove a few posts here- including mine- as leaving them is disrespectful to the forum and against forum rules. Don't feel badly, there are a few years worth of threads I answered in the "Insulation" forum when I erroneously thought foam board was the "only" way to insulate interior basements.

Gary,

Feel free to show me where "amerigo" was "ridiculed" here. If you consider the term "drive by" to be a real insult, I am sorry for you. I fail to see the insult in a term that is commonly referred to describe the bumping up of a nearly 8 year old thread that was answered.
@craig11152 pointed out that this was a resolved and answered question that was nearly 8 years old.

Seeing as you are so concerned about the words and feelings that might be trampled, are you going to take issue with amerigo's own words?

I am guessing you are going to chastise him in a follow up post for his "ridiculing" words that he chose.

Clearly if "drive-by poster" is ridicule...calling a homeowner "dumb" must also be...right. Please...do tell me Gary...how do you feel about amerigo's comments?

Are you really confused as to what side of the industry amerigo is on? I am guessing he is a contractor in this case and for the record, I don't find anything he said here offensive.

What I do take issue with is your "selective outrage" when someone makes a joke about an 8 year old thread being bumped up with zero new information be added to the post.

Completely ridiculous.

Re: Who gets the leftover roofing materials?


Are you posting that for Amerigo's benefit?

Where is the:
  • name calling
  • personal attack
  • inappropriate behavior
  • discriminatory remarks
Feel free to demonstrate where any of the remarks, with the exception of someone calling homeowners dumb (same person who's defense you rushed to), meet any of those criteria.



Just wondering, honestly, what you are seeing that is "offensive".
