Proposal Questions

It’s important when comparing Proposals to know what each company is offering and the materials they are using. Price is only one factor in the equation. A quote may be hirer in price, but providing more value per dollar than another. You should be making an educated decision and not one based solely on price.

Roof Tear-Off

During a re-roof project, tear-off refers to the removal and proper disposal of the old roof system down to the deck substrate. Our Proposal specifies the roofing material(s) to be removed during tear-off signified by a checkmark.

  • 1 Layer Shingles: One layer of shingles will be removed.
  • 2 Layer Shingles: Two layers of shingles will be removed. Roof systems consisting of two or more layers of shingles will be subject to an additional labor and disposal fee.
  • Gravel: A tar and gravel roof system will be removed.
  • Flat Roof: A rolled roof system, typically used in flat roof applications, will be removed.
  • Metal: A metal panel roof system will be removed.
  • Tile: A tile roof system will be removed.
  • Underlayment: The second water-barrier layer (underlayment) material will be removed.
  • Other: In special roof applications, other materials may be removed in the tear-off process. When applicable, the materials will be specified in this subsection.

Wood Repair

The tear-off of the old roof system exposes the deck substrate and other structural components. The roof system is inspected for wood rot, damage, and integral weaknesses. Pro Roofing is mandated by the Florida Building Code to repair and replace damaged roof components with new material of matching size and species.

The extent of wood repairs needed on your project cannot be determined or estimated until the old roof system is removed. As a result, wood repairs are not included in the price listed on our Proposal. Wood repairs are an additional cost that is billed separately.

  • Inspect Roof Deck for Damaged Sheathing: Wood sheets, called sheathing, are attached to roof trusses forming the roof deck. The roof deck, fascia board, and other components will be inspected for damage including rot, water damage, or other integrity compromises.
  • Re-Nail Entire Roof Deck Up-To Code: Florida Building Code mandates all roof systems be renailed up to the current building code. Effective October 1st, 2007, all roof replacements on existing site built single-family residences must comply with Section 507.2.2 of the Florida Building Code or be re-nailed utilizing 8D round-head ring shank nails spaced no greater than 6 inches on center.
  • Plywood Sheathing Replaced at $x.xx p/Sheet: The per 4′ x 8′ sheet price of sheathing replaced. Price includes material and labor costs per sheet. Your specific sheathing may be veneered plywood, oriented-strand board (OSB), or C-Class to D-Class exposed plywood (CDX).
  • Fascia and Wood Board Replace at $x.xx p/Ft.: The per foot price of dimensional lumber replaced. Price includes material and labor costs per linear foot. Your specific dimensional lumber may be 1″ x 6″, 2″ x 8″, or other nominal boards.
  • Specialty Wood Replaced at $x.xx p/Ft.: The per foot price of dimensional lumber replaced with specialty wood (ex. Cedar boards) Price includes material and labor costs per linear foot.
  • Other: In certain circumstances, other wood components need to be replaced and priced seperately. If applicable, the wood type and price will be listed here. Price includes material and labor costs, unless otherwise specifed in the Proposal Notes section.

Sloped Roof System

The Sloped Roof System section refers to the type of roof system Pro Roofing proposes to install to roof sections having a “slope” or a roof pitch typically 3/12 or greater. Roof pitch is identified by the number of inches of a horizontal run per 12 inches of vertical rise.

  • Shingle – Architectural: High-quality dimensional or laminated shingles made from a fiberglass mat base with ceramic coated minerals that are embedded in water-resistant asphalt. Several layers of shingles may be used to create the shingle. Standard wind-resistance is rated at 110-mph. Pro Roofing always uses manufacturer starter strips, and hip and ridge shingles, upgrading wind warranties to 130-mph! CertainTeed Landmark series is our most popular architectural shingle.
  • Shingle – 3-Tab: The 3-Tab asphalt shingle, also called a composition or fiberglass shingle, has single-layer construction. 3-Tab shingle re-roofs are out-dated and typically only used today in lower-quality properties, such as rental, or where the re-roof budget is extremely small. Wind-resistance is typically rated at 80mph. The value of architectural shingles is worth the small increase in financial investment.  Pro Roofing does not recommend installing 3-Tab shingles, whenever possible.
  • Metal: Metal roof panels are becoming increasingly popular for their longevity, impact, and fire resistance ratings. Metal roof panels are available in a variety of profiles, finish coatings, and featuring exposed or concealed fasteners. The costs for metal panels have a substantial cost increase versus shingles, however, with finish coating warranties available up to 45-Years, the value is realized by those customers who have the budget. Metal Sales Image II series is our most popular metal roof panel.
  • Tile: Popular in Spanish and Mediterranean architecture, and high-end residences, roof tile offer a classy aethetic that is unmatched by other roof materials. Roof tile is available in a wide range of profiles and typically are constructed of concrete or clay. Tile roofs also come with greater financial investment. Eagle Tile Capistrano is our most popular roof tile with a large color palette to complement any architectural styling.

Flat Roof System

Rolled roofing is the most common type of residential flat roof system. Modified Bitumen is an ashpalt-based product, rolled roofing product that is applied using either a “torch-down” or a self-adhering method.  The cap sheet feature granules, similar to those seen on shingles, and are available in shingle-matching colors.

  • Torch-Down / 75-lb. Glassbase Underlayment:  Torch-down, as the name implies, is adhered to the roof deck using a torch to melt the adhesive membrane to the substrate. Seventy-five-pound Glassbase is the standard base sheet, or underlayment, used in torch-down applications.
  • Peel-&-Stick Underlayment: When performance is a priority peel-&-stick underlayment outperforms Glassbase. Peel-&-Stick or self-adhering underlayment is applied to the roof deck by removing a protective film from a self-adhering membrane.
  • Self-Adhering Modified Bitumen: An ‘SA’ or self-adhering modified bitumen system features a self-adhering base sheet and cap sheet.

Tapered System

ISO Polyisocyanurate, or ‘PolyIso’ for short, is a type of insulation board used in flat roof applications when space is not available for conventional insulation methods. Using tapered PolyIso insulation boards pitch can be added to a very low slope roof that facilitates better water runoff. Pro Roofing recommends the use of tapered insulation boards when the roof slope is less than ¼ inch of horizontal run per 12 inches of vertical rise (.25/12).

  • Flat Roof Pitch Change: Install a PolyIso insulation board to increase a roof pitch or transition from one pitch to another.
  • ISO Cold Polyisocyanurate Roof Insulation: Install a PolyIso insulation board to increase insulating R-value. Common sizes are 1″ and 2″.

Roof Valleys

A roof valley is formed when two sloping roof sections meet, forming a V angle, where water collects and flows off the roof. Pro Roofing knows that roof valleys are one of the most problem-prone areas of your roof system. Roof valleys that are improperly installed become a high-risk factor for leaks.

Pro Roofing provides a 5-Layer Protection system to roof valleys that offers you peace-of-mind and increased performance. Ice & Water Sheild underlayment (Peel-&-Stick) is installed first. All seams are sealed using a roofing adhesive. Galvanized metal valley flashing is shaped and mechanically-fastened using power-driven nails. All seams are sealed a second time using a roofing adhesive. The finish roof material is installed completing the roof valley installation.

  • 16″ Flashing on Roof Valleys: Install ice and water shield underlayment and 16″ wide galvanized metal flashing to roof valleys
  • No Roof Valleys: The project does not incorporate valleys in the roof system.

Roof Ventilation

Certain building systems require airflow to operate properly and efficiently. The most common ventilation components are plumbing vents, exhaust vents, and attic vents.

Plumbing Boots, or lead boots, allows air to enter your plumbing system to help push wastewater through the pipes and prevent sewer gases from accumulating inside the building.

Gooseneck Vents are a type of static exhaust vent. Kitchen hood vents, bathroom exhaust fans, and clothes dryer vent exhaust air through the attic using Gooseneck vents.

Baffled Shingle-Over Ridge Vents is a type of attic vent that exhausts air from the roof’s ridgeline, as opposed to attic vents that are installed on a place of a roof section or at gable ends. Venting from the highest point of the roof system, ridge vents are more efficient than other static attic vent products. Shingle-Over ridge vents are installed with hip and ridge cap shingles over top of the vent and are manufactured from plastic materials.

Off-Ridge Vents is a type of attic vent that exhausts air and is installed “off-ridge” or on a plane of a roof section. Buildings that do not have a sufficient ridgeline to adequately vent the attic space, an off-ridge vent must be used.  Off-Ridge vents are constructed of galvanized metal and finished in 3 stock colors: white, black, and brown.

Boot Guards is an add-on PVC-based product that eliminates damage from critters that causes roof leaks that can go undetected. Squirrels and other animals are attracted to the lead in the plumbing boots. Overhanding trees can provide easy access to a buffet of boots for them to feast on.

Zipper Boot is a specialized plumbing boot required in certain applications. Zipper boots are customizable on-site and are typically used in metal roof applications because of its high-temperature resistance and ability to conform to any irregular roof surface.

  • Plumbing Vent Boots: Install the quantity listed for each size of lead plumbing boot: 1.5″, 2″, 3″ and 4″ diameters.
  • Gooseneck Vents: Install the quantity listed for each size of Gooseneck vent: 4″, 6″ and 10″. Standard stock colors are white, black, and brown.
  • Baffled Shingle-Over Ridge Vent: Install the linear feet listed of baffled shingle-over ridge vent and shingle-over using shingle manufacture’s specialty hip and ridge cap shingles.
  • Off-Ridge Vent: Install the quantity listed of galvanized metal off-ridge vent. Standard stock colors are white, black, and brown. Standard stock sizes are 4′ and 6′.
  • Boot Guard Color: Boot Guards are available in white, black, brown, tan, grey, terracotta, and hunter green. Boot Guards are available in two sizes: Small (for 1.5″ and 2″ diameter pipes) and Large (for 3″ and 4″ diameter pipes). Boot Guards are an additional cost and not included in our Proposal price.
  • Zipper Boots: Install the quantity listed of Zipper-style or split boot. Zipper Boots are an additional cost and not included in our Proposal price.

Galvanized Drip Edge

Drip edge is a metal flashing that is installed at the edges of the roof to help control the flow of water away from the fascia and to protect the underlying roofing components. Drip edge overhangs the sides of the roof and has a small metal flange that is bent away from the fascia. It is non-corrosive and non-staining so that your roof looks good but is structurally stable.

  • 2½” Face Installed Around Entire Perimeter of Roof: Remove existing drip edge and install new galvanized drip edge with a stock 2½ inch height around the entire perimeter of the roof. Seal edges with roofing adhesive. Standard stock colors are white, black, and brown.
  • 2½” Face Installed Where No Gutters: Remove existing drip edge and install new galvanized drip edge with a stock 2½ inch height around the sections of roof that do not have gutters installed. Seal edges with roofing adhesive. Standard stock colors are white, black, and brown.
  • Re-Use: Though uncommon for most projects, there are certain instances where the existing drip edge is in good condition, will not compromise system integrity, and can be reused. Reinstall existing drip edge and seal edges with roofing adhesive.

Chimney Area

A chimney is a vertical channel which is positioned above a fireplace and may protrude through a roof section. A chimney can be constructed from bricks, stainless steel, or concrete. A cricket or saddle is a ridge structure designed to divert water on a roof around the high side of a chimney. Chimney protrusions have special flashing requirements to prevent water leaks. A chimney cap is protective covering the go over the top of the chimney.

  • New Flashing: Install new galvanized flashing around the chimney’s perimeter and seal edges with roofing adhesive.
  • Replace Existing Flashing (If Needed): Remove existing chimney flashing and install new galvanized flashing around the chimney’s perimeter and seal edges with roofing adhesive if needed.
  • Chimney Cap: Remove existing chimney cap and install a new galvanized metal chimney cap, sized to meet the requirements of the chimney it will attach to.
  • Rebuild Chimney: Rebuild or make repairs to the chimney framing or sheathing.
  • Build Chimney Cricket: Build a new chimney cricket to facilitate better water runoff.
  • Remove Chimney: Demolition existing chimney and cover protraction hole with matching deck material.


Skylights and solar tubes provide natural lighting into a structure through penetrations in the roof. Skylights are available in stock sizes of 2′ x 2′ and 2′ x 4′. Custom skylights sizes are available to replace existing custom-sized skylights or to add new skylights of an unstocked size. Solar Tubes are a type of light-emitting tunnel and provide more focused light and with less expense than a skylight. Unless otherwise specified in the Proposal Notes section, skylights, and solar tubes are included in our Proposal price.
