1200 seemed fair to me. Another quote I had was 1500. They've done a fantastic job so far. I haggled a little and got the price down. They are replacing some wood, recaulked everything, and of course sanded. Paint itself was $224, and that's WITH a 40% employee discount. 7 gallons. They also painted my slightly faded storm doors. May have them go ahead and paint the rest of the storm windows.
Now, to try and get a new roof. These shingles look like shit. For reference, my brother paid $800 to have his house painted, didn't get to choose the color, and it took them a week to complete. This was 7 yrs ago. We had a contractor friend that wa just trying to keep his guys busy. They came and worked a littl here, and a little there between jobs. They worked mostly evenings.
Jesus man, and I thought we did a gut job on our house. Is there anything left in that place you HAVEN'T touched? When is the party?
