SUBJECT: Purchase Recommendation for a New Roof
The purpose of this report is to recommend which kind of shingles the Youth Center should purchase. The old roof leaks and is currently ruining the floors in The Youth Center. I have selected two different types of shingles: GAF, 25 year 3-Tab Shingle White-Bundle and the Owens Corning, AR Estate Gray Oak Asphalt Shingles-Bundle. To determine which shingles to recommend, I have developed the following criteria.
I recommend The Youth Center purchase the GAF, 25 Year 3-Tab Shingle White-Bundle. First, it would provide the quality roofing that the center needs. Second, the GAF, shingles are within the allocated budget. Third, these shingles perfectly match the outside of the Youth Center’s building.
The Center directors have suggested that we rank cost as the first criterion. Due to the lack of funds that the Center has, we must be cost conscious. The directors have allocated $10,000 for the new roof.
Quality is our second criterion. The last roofer that came to fix a leak said that the shingles we currently have are poor in quality and is no longer sold in the state. We would like to have shingles that would last longer, so the children would not have to miss time from the center due leaks from the roof.
To make sure that the roof matches the current colors we have on the outside of the building, we have ranked appearance third.
The remainder of this report will compare both set of shingles to the three criteria.
The cost of the roof shingles must not exceed $10,000.
GAF 25 Year 3-Tab Shingle White-Bundle. Sedric Anderson, roofing representative for Home Depot, said the total cost of the GAF, 25 Year 3-Tab Shingles White-Bundle is $8,975.00. The cost breakdown follows:
