      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I need a new roof

Recommended Posts

I am thinking on having Certainteed Landmark shingles installed. But before I talk to contractors I would like to know if this an adequate 30 year, 264 lbs. shingle? This will be a tear off of a 25 year old roof, 2300 square feet on a 4/12 pitch. What can I expect to budget for labor and material? Any tips on selecting a contractor and what to ask when I visit with them? Thanks

I put 30yr Landmarks on my last house before i sold it. They are easy to put down, look nice. I used to work at a lumberyard and that was 85% of the shingles that we sold. I would guess you to have $3,500-$4,000 in materials. (that might be off considering how shingles have gone up and down lately, more up than down)

that inlcudes new underlayment and accessories. That will also vary due to hips/valleys/dormers ect.

Labor a few years back was around $100-$115/sq for tearoff & puton. you will have a disposal/dumpster fee. Ask if they pull the permit or if thats your responsibility.

Landmarks are all I put on. I like them a lot more than GAF Timberlines. Have done about 400 sq. already this spring. When I tear-off the Timberlines I notice that the laminate like to peel apart pretty easy on 5 yr old roofs. They just seem to be tougher than the Timberlines, but that's only my opinion.

Depending on the roof labor should be about 120 give or take a couple bucks a square. Roofing material is really high priced right now. If I could get in touch with you I could give you some advice over the phone for another FMer. Without seeing your place I would say it would be about 6800-7500 for a one layer tear off and all new accessories. (permit, dump, labor, material.)

We use a lot of Landmark 30 shingles when we reroof. We also use some of the Timberlines. Both are good and very comparable to each other. You should be OK with either one. Labor, materials and disposal should run you about $260 a square(100 sq ft.) right now depending on the roof pitch.

You guys are getting good labor prices. In the mankato area I've had to drop my labor prices to 75/sq for a 4/12 and materials are running 130/150/ sq

Certainteed landmark 30yr are $89/sq

raw materials spiked insanely for them. you take a fiberglass/asphalt shingle when 70% of the shingle is a petroleum product, and the barrel almost quadruples in price, you're bound to have a price increase. I would think now the prices should start tailing off.

Another thing i've heard is that the petroleum product used to make shingles is the bi-product of refineries. As the refineries become more efficient in re-using the bi-product there becomes less and less of it, thus driving up the price, and keeping it there even though the barrel price has dropped. Supply and Demand.

Thats the problem. When prices started to soar everyone

decided to buy shingles, thus creating a shortage in turn driving prices high. but now that prices are so high,less people are reshingleing their homes thus the supply of shingles should be caught up. On top of that a poor economy should help to lower prices, but still they have not dropped!!!!!!!!!!!

Still high prices because a lot of inventory from last year when prices were sky high. Not going to go down that much anytime soon. Insurance companies have really tightened up, which, isn't helping.

i know its bad to wish for,and can be a pain to homeowners, but a few decent hail storms will boost business, create jobs, move inventory !

st micheal, sartell, albertville in the last few years have been crazy for roofing after those storms.

98% of the shingles I sell/install are Landmark. I like the Premium and TL line but the 30 is a great shingle. IMO the 40 is a waste of money.

My company is a 5 Star Certainteed Sellect Shingle Company so we can offer a lot of perks when putting down a Certainteed shingle. For example with a 30 year shingle the wind warranty is bumped to 110 mph for 5 years and with a 50 year shingle 130mph for 10 years. The sure start warranty with a 50 year shingle is the full 50 years.

Just turned down a 370sq tear off because the owner insisted on GAF Timberlines. The owner also decided to go with the cheapest bid and it was an insurance job. Insurance fraud is something you don't want any part in!

Your weights are slightly off though with the Landmark 30.

The actual weights and warranties with a standard installation are,

Landmark 30,

245lbs per square

5-year 70mph

5-year sure start protection

10-year algea warranty

Landmark Plus 40,

265lbs per square

5-year 80mph

5-year sure start protection

10-year algea warranty

Landmark Premium 50,

300lbs per square

10-year 90mph

10-year sure start protection

10-year algea warranty

Landmark TL

340lbs per square

10-year 110mph

10-year sure start protection

15-year algea warranty

Only true three layer laminate on the market. The Shenandoah and Resawn Shake are two very nice looking shingles. New for 09 Max Def with the TL line.

So far this year have done more TL and Premium jobs than 30's. Average roofs have been 55-60 squares.

If you want to learn more about finding a roofing contractor do a google search on roofing forums and you'll find some of the brightest minds in the industry at your fingertips.

The labor prices you guys have mentioned sure are low. The very few contractors I sub from pay me $150 a square. Been getting a consistant $400-600 a square on insurance jobs. The job we are finishing tommorow a 35sq 8/12 paid $20,350. The crews from the south are getting $55 a square labor all day long. Right now booked deep into the Summer.

There are no heros in roofing...

The insurance companies are tightening up but they are still paying for damage that is of course if there's damage!

If you recall there was a shortage on Weathered Wood, Burnt Sienna, and Moire Black late last Summer. The high demand of shingles ate up all popular colors. Certainteed actually bought up a ton of raw products when crude oil went way down and even stopped producing and shipping shingles for over a month this past Winter. Figuring there was going to be a huge damage this Spring which there hasn't been yet they went full boar and leased 14 acreas from Canabery to stockpile shingles. A good friend of mine hauls granuals from the 3M plant in WI to the CT Shakopee plant and he made mention of getting laid off for 6 weeks in the very near future.

Just like a lot of cities learning that insurance companies paid for permit fee's decided they could double or even triple fee's the shingle manufacturers are doing the same thing.

Unlike most yards who saw an increase in shingle costs March 1 my yard actually broght prices down about 6-7% from late last Fall. Of course when ordering special order shingles you are stuck paying the price increases.

My guess is all the shingle manufacturers and hoping and wishing for another busy hail and wind season. There sure is no demand for shingles in the new construction segment.

    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
