Roof shingles price climb ?

Recommended Posts

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

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
