I feel comfortable that with the books purchased from this site, and this forum combined with three-five bids from each subcontractor, that I can do okay.

Not really a free roof, but a funny experience. We are ready for a roof and I have been finalizing estimates for two weeks or so while the framers finish up. Today I had a 10 o'clock meeting for a retaining wall estimate and to my surprise there was a team of roofers working away. They had the felt almost complete. I asked them who they worked for and let them know I did not know they were coming today. There was a language barrier but I got the name of the company from one of the workers shirts, or so I thought. I dialed the number, but it was disconnected. I called information and got the new number but the person in the office indicated that it wasn't their crew: "don't have anyone out that way today."

I went ahead and talked with the retaining wall guy and let the crew work away. When they got to a part of the roof that I had planned on installing metal, I stopped them and asked that they get down from the roof so we could figure this out. 

They pulled from the truck a wrinkled Mapquest page with a handwritten address and directions. The numbers were close to mine -- but no match, and the street was 30 blocks away. They were roofing the wrong house. What did they do, get lost and just drive around until they found something that looked ready to roof?

Anyway, I called the office back with the new address, the reply: "We've been wondering where that crew was." How can they stay in business?! So in the end, I got the felt installed for free, still need the roofing materials installed, the materials had not been delivered to the incorrect address or I probably would have let them keep working -- well, only if I liked the product they were installing.
