Outrageous Roofing Quote From Home Depot
GEORGIA -- We have a small house with a very simple shingle roof. A reputable contractor who has done a good bit of work in our neighborhood gave us a quote to re-roof our house for $3,800. I told him that quote sounded high and I would like to have a quote for identical shingles, GAF Architectural, from Home Depot. The Home Depot salesman came by on April 7th and read me page after page from his sales flip charts, measured our roof and prepared a quote. After even more sales efforts he finally gave me the price, $7,600.00 for the exact same work. When I told him that Home Depot was twice as much as the last contractor, he offered to drop the price by 10%. We were astonished at the quote and can only assume there are too many sales people to be paid commissions to have a reasonable quote.
