You can build extras into a contract before you tear off a roof. Like, if joists need to be replaced, this much per joist, wood replacement, this much per sheet of ply that needs to be replaced, etc. Never sign a contract with an open clause.

Yeah this was the problem. Even if they don't know the extent of a houses specific damage they have a pretty good idea of potential costs. And I can't imagine any situation (outside of adding in masonry work) where the cost doubles because of plywood and joists.
