Here is the scenario/case.
We had a few leaks in our roof last year. But we had a guy fix them. We decided we might need a new roof so we have asked 4 roofers to come give us their opinion on the state of our roof. Repair? or Replace?
1. We had one roofer tell us he would not touch our roof to fix it, but that it needs complete replacement. ($8k)
2. Second roofer came out and said we need an entire new roof , decking and all
3. Third roofer came out and said, "oh no, you do not need new decking just new roofing materials ( shingles ). ($7,800)
4. Fourth roofer came out and got up on the roof with me and said " dave, i'm a roofer, i do 400 rooves a year, and you do not need a new roof." He said the decking is fine, the shingles are ok, with at least 4 more good years left. Possibly some hail damage but he needed to come back to check.
so, here we are at in impasse. what the hell do we do? I say, if a roofer tells you you do not need a roof, then you don't. but does he know what he is talking about?
it is the slow season. roofers are notorious liars, so i have no idea what to do.
