Sun, rain, snow and wind all play havoc with mobile home roofing, particularly with flat or low-pitch styled roofs that may collect moisture. Replacement roofing costs vary by size of unit, and type of roofing material including rubber, metal or composition shingle.

Typical costs:

  • Rubber mobile home roofs are created by stretching a thick blanket-like membrane over an existing roof at a cost of about $1,175-$2,295 in materials for a single-wide and $1,595-$3,610 for a double-wide, depending on size, manufacturer, shipping distance, pitch of roof and number of vents. For example a 16' x 75' single-wide unit using the RoofWrap[1] system will cost about $2,100 plus shipping. This roofing style is popular with many DIYers because installation can be completed in less than a day.
  • Metal roofing materials cost about $1,000-$2,000 for a single-wide or $1,800-$3,000 for a double-wide, depending on size of unit and manufacturer and are designed to last a lifetime. Metal roofs may be installed over an existing roof with or without a DIYer adding insulation in between. Insulated metal products cost about $3,000-$4,000 for a single-wide unit or about $7,000-$8,000 for a double-wide, including installation, depending on size and manufacturer. For example, Roof Over.com[2] offers a white insulated metal roof with polystyrene backing for about $3,545 for a 14'x70'single-wide with a lifetime warranty.
  • Composition shingle roofing is typically added to a pitched roof that repels water better than its flat counterparts and costs about $650-$2,175 for materials for a single-wide or $1,290-$4,250 for a double-wide, depending on size of unit, thickness or quality of shingle and location. The new roof may either be placed directly over the old roof or after the old roof has been removed.
  • Liquid roofing[3] is rolled onto a clean and prepared rooftop with a paint roller at a cost of about $600-$900 for a single-wide mobile home or $1,400-$1,800 for a double-wide unit and is designed to last about 10 years. The liquid rubber must be installed on a mild, dry day and allowed to dry for several hours. Other liquid products are available for spot leaks and should be reapplied each year. Leaks may also be stopped with Peal and Seal[4] at about $1.25-$2 per sq. ft.
  • Roofing installation costs vary by type of roof. An experienced handyman will be able to install a rubber or metal roof, while a roofing contractor should be consulted for a composition shingle roof where installation prices vary from $675-$2,500 for a single wide to $1,300-$5,000 for a double wide, depending on size of unit, location and shingle quality.

What should be included:
  • For professional roof replacements, costs should include materials, labor and site cleanup at completion.
  • During rubber roof installations, the membrane is fitted over the top, and then secured at the top edges with a trim.
  • Insulated metal roofs may be installed directly over existing metal or shingle roofs. However, before installing over a rubber roof, the rubber and underlayment must be removed.
Additional costs:
  • If polystyrene insulation is to be used under rubber membrane, expect to pay an extra $500-$700 for a single-wide mobile home or $1,400-$1,800 for a double-wide unit, depending on size.
  • DIYers will need a variety of tools for the different roofing projects. With rubber roofing a hammer ($20-$30), and scissors or box knife are needed. Metal roofing tools[5] would include an electric screwdriver ($30-$80) and a metal cutter ($90-$200). A hammer and a shingle cutter ($120-$180) are also needed for composition roofing installations, while liquid rubber roofers would need paint rollers and covers ($10-$15), paint trays ($2-$7), and an extension pole ($15-$40).
Shopping for mobile home roofing:
  • Before buying a rubber roof, use an online calculator[6] to determine size and receive a price estimate.
  • Check with family and neighbors for recommendations on roofing installers, and consider checking a prospective installer's Better Business Bureau[7] rating.
  • Home improvement chains like Lowe's[8] offer roofing materials, tools and installation options.
  • Locate a roofing contractor through the National Roofing Contractors Association[9] .

Had these men for another job, and rehired since they did good work. Not cheap, of course. Utilizing 2 5-gallon buckets of roof coating (the black stuff, not tar) opting for the 3-year kind, versus the silver kind that lasts 5yrs. Ran around $90/bucket. Took 2 men a half a day.
