This is a residential fire loss where the majority of the OSB Sheathing and Truss framing was completely compromised prior to the fire being extinguished. Thus, the roof was considered a total loss in the broadest sense i.e., it was not practical to retain roof vents or the associated hardware. The original estimate incorporated roof windows (skylights) and saddle/cricket framing concessions. The AI Board ultimately determined that these nuances added too much complexity to this Insight Sheet© and those concepts will be captured in a future Insight Sheet© slated for publication in 2018.

This Insight Sheet© exists to clarify how one might invoice for a roof comprised of 3-tab shingles. This does not seek to include or make concessions for all equipment and/or activities as it relates to a loss of this nature.

Manufacturer Warranty. I wouldn't want to void it.

Manufacturer also gives option of using cut shingles. So the way around it is this. You must supply the actual math for actual waste without starter or ridge. Then ask for it that way. Or the final way is take picture showing it is actual starter on the roof and like kind and quality

When changed from DMO to RFG the price triples, this should be interesting.
