Topic: Regarding Pitched Roof costing

Hi, My name is RN Murthy and I am a senior banker working for a NBFC based out of Bangalore. I am in deep distress after I started construction of my house with a contractor. I had to chose full material contract as I had no time to provide. I met one of my friend who is an Architect and based on his advise he suggested me a contractor and started construction work in Jan 13.

The disputes started around Sept 13 due to non disclosure of rates and not being transparent in pricing. We arrived at a agreement value of 128000/- per 10 sq(i.e. 1280/- per sft), this was a non negotiated price and basic material cost was specified and any differential would be paid by the owner. To this extent I felt they are transparent and moved ahead.

As per the elevation drawing there are pitched roof and pergolas constructed and the contractor demanded 1280/- per sqft for the pitched roof and pergolas apart from the regular constructed area. I argued with him was he was charging too much for just concrete and met the architect to settlement the matter. Even the architect said it costs the price of the area and I have to pay for it.
I did consult some of my other friends to confirm and everybody side he was taking me for a ride or cheating me. He has placed a bill of 900sft of extra which works to 12L.

This cost has led my budget go out of gear and not knowing what do to do. Please help me understand if these rates are genuine and will it cost 1280/- per sft for a pitched roof.

The roof is constructed on 2nd floor. Appreciate you advise and help to handle this better. I have attached a picture for your reference and you can spot the pitched roof on both side of the building.

Regards
RN Murthy - 7829112266.

Hi Murthy,

Said to know all this, I m also a civil contractor, Always do paperwork.

The costing can be measured by the measuring the concrete roof for which he is asking extra. If there is no wall constructed then he has to give you discount but that is very minimum.

Dear Mr. Murthy, hello..! For such type of problem ,start from the cost of construction of each floor i.e. Rs 1280/- per SqFf. and what are the "ITEMS" included in it. for upper floors mainly these are  1.walls up to 10' height ,2 casting of lintel band at 7', 3.Roof slab casting  4. Plastering in side and out side 5.fixing of Door & windows,6 Flooring 7. Painting work 8. Electrification work and 9.sanitary & Water supply work according to plan....for Pitched roof  and Pergola ...it requires a less no. of these "items" ...so  include cost of the Items ,that are actually constructed, especially the height of walls..these are less than 7' ,on 3rd floor...Kindly consult your Architect to make it correct or take help of other qualified Engineer or Architect...I am sure it will solve your problem...Regards..
