Roof shingles price climb ?

13 posts in this topic

I am getting quotes for roof replacement, some told me the price of shingles went from $ 70s/bundle to over $ 90/bundle, is this true ?

Yes, they are at about $80 as of now. If you have a good contractor and insurance company, you won't have to worry about it. Your only expense will be your deductible. The insurance company will pay the difference if shingle prices continue to rise. I'm pretty sure they will top out at $95-$100.

Any questions valv, don't hesitate to ask.

I know you are just relaying info from the news, but please don't spread bad info. That is on Horizon shangles, not all certainteed shingles. Those shingles were made in the past and not made anymore. We knew they were bad back then and never used them on our jobs. Although we use Certainteed Landmark's on all of our jobs and sell them with confidence over any other brand (for the last 20 years). If you need more info, I can post it.

BTW, we are working on a warranty claim from Certainteed right now for some siding. They supplied all of the materials and paid all of the labor. We haven't had GAF or any other company pay for full replacement on warranty like that.

Makes sense, coating your roof in oil has got to be more expensive these days.

Certainteed gets my vote. Siding faded and they replaced both my house and shed. Paid for all labor. Sucks the siding faded, but they back it up.

First off, I misread the original post. They are $80 a square, not per bundle.

As for the lawsuit, it has been going on for years. It is for the old organic shingles, and those haven't been made for over 5 years.

Show me a shingle company, or better yet, any big materials company that hasn't had a lawsuit. You can google GAF, Tamko, etc. They have all had lawsuits in the past.

Joe....ehemm...what's the difference ? I don't know how many bundles in a square foot or how many square feet a bundle will cover.

A square is 100 square ft. With most shingles, 3 bundles cover a square. Roughly 22 shingles per bundle, if they are metric.

Aside from shingle prices on the rise, so are the underlayments. You have to figure almost $140 per square for materials. That puts most prices at almost $300 per square with labor and material, not including any valleys, step flashings, etc. This should give you a good idea.

When it comes to insurance work, most prices should be within a few dollars. The ins. adjusters and roofers know exactly what they cost is. The pricing software is zip code specific, so prices are very close.

I urge everyone to go to Westurn Roofing's HSOforum, go to multimedia tab and go to the bottom of the page. Listen to the interview at the bottom. It is about 15 minutes long, but there is a ton of info on it for storm damage.

Ok, I still don't get an answer from my question. Is over $ 90/bundle a ripoff price or is it a current estimate ?

Val if they indeed quated that per bundle, yes rip off, but if it is per square then that is the going rate

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
