McGarry's House in Milton, Wisconsin showing the new roof repair produced simultaneously with the neighbors house

McGarry’s house re-roofed simultaneously with the neighbor’s.

Reduced costs from the consolidation of roofing materials for two houses produced a savings by purchasing materials for both projects at the same time. The neighbor returned from vacation with a new roof to realize a substantial savings on roofing materials. And, to enjoy the July 4th Independence Day Celebration with a freshly renovated house.

Material decisions are important aspects to consider when estimating a roof repair. Many items exhibit a cost-per-unit decrease when the quantity of items purchased increases. Imagine that the price to replace the gray asphalt shingles on your house is $0.05 each, a nickel a piece. Not bad right! That fits your budget.

Now imagine the neighbor next door, or across the street, talks with you and wants to explore hiring the same roofing company. They want to examine if the estimate decreases by consolidating two projects combining the roofing material purchases. For example, you purchase gray shingles and the neighbor purchases red shingles. The roofing company can place an order for five thousand shingles; fifty percent or two thousand five hundred in gray, and another fifty percent – two thousand five hundred shingles in red. Brilliant! The cost per shingle reduces from $0.5 cents each for one roof repair, to $0.25 cents each for two roof repairs ordered at the same time. You save 50% on material costs by consolidating orders for re-roofing two homes together… hypothetically that is. Call for a no cost estimate to compare the costs.
