Is this job a repair or a complete re roof. As I see it this job is not a repair it is a re roof completely.

You need to tell us the area before we can comment really but I would go for EPDM not Tecnitorch nowadays , re-advertise under the roofing section & get alternative prices & specification , dont just go with this spec.
