How much money do you make? Let's say you make $20 an hour. At Able's $6,000 quote, at $20 an hour that means it would cost you about 300 hours of work before you could pay for a new roof. 300 hours translates to about two months of work.<quoted text>

On the other hand, I was able to get my roof done for about $2,000 dollars. This means I would only have to work 100 hours or about two and a half weeks to pay for the roof.
Are you saying I should spin my wheels for another 5 1/2 weeks to put my money in an American pocket? How does that make my life better being away from my family and loved ones for an additional 5 1/2 weeks of work just to pay for the roof.
