Do you think it it cheaper to find a roofer myself or go through Lowe's as a middle man? I mean, if the local stores do not have much control over the local contractors, why add Lowe's to the mix?

    I have no idea about how Lowe's and the suppliers agree on retail pricing.

    Main caution I have is, adding any middle man adds their profit to the cost.
    Take care - Steven

    Which has been a big bone of contention amongst the employee community.

    I went to BMI metals in Charlotte Hall, off Ryceville Road (Amish) The roofing metal is $2.50 a linier foot and the sheets are 3 feet wide, cut to any length you want. They have a list of "contractors" they use. I chose Eli Kurtz, he came out took the measurements and gave me the price. They used 1"x4" boards over the existing shingles then the roofing on top of that. They (4 guys) started at 8 and were done, cleaned up everything and gone by 2.

    Sam and his family found a nice little niche for themselves.
