    Good video. I would like to comment on the ventilation portion of your video. What you said is true, that a roof won't last very long if it is not properly ventilated. However, more ventilation is not better. In ventilation, you should have it divided into 50% intake and 50% exhaust. Gable louver vents, whirly birds, power fans, and ridge vents are all exhaust. No need to have more than one kind of exhaust, BUT you must have the proper amount of intake venting to help with the flow pressure. So, make sure that 50% of your venting is soffit vents, fascia vents, etc. Use a roof ventilation calculator, and it will take care of itself by explaining exactly how many of each type of vent you would need to vent the attic.?

    How much profit should I go for? Obviously I'd estimate how many hours the roof would take before negotiating a price, but is there a certain % range for profit based on how much money was spent on materials? Thanks for the vid.?

    Thanks Chris. You have made roof estimating very easy, especially when intersecting roof lines are present with valleys and hips. Nice simple method you have devised here. Nice job and thanks.. :-)?

    Couldn't find "roofrepairzone" web site… what do you think of doing the main home in shingles and the attached flat top garage as a tar roof? Your video was extremely helpful!

  • Chris Cosens 1 year ago

    Thanks for your comment. If you watch the video I explain that 2500 square feet is just a number I came up with. The point is to teach you have to estimate the roof yourself. I just said lets say the roof is 2,500 square feet for the sake of example. 2,500 sq ft is 25 square which is equal to about 75 bundles I added 5 bundles for waste equalling 80 bundles.
