Type: Sq Ft of Roof: 40sq
I have a very high and steep roof. The estimates I got were all for about 40 sqare. I got est. for asphault shingles and complete tear off. ranged from 14,000 to 18,000. Is this accurate, and what would be the cost for a metal roof with no tear off?

Steep Roofing Prices
Amount: $8,100.00
Posted by: Mike Kern in Tewksbury, MA.Posted: January 31st, 2010 08:01AM
Type: Standard 12 pitchSq Ft of Roof: 1800
Contractor: Quinn's Construction
I shopped around quite a bit and I knew what the materials cost. I got the craziest estimates, and what it comes down to is this. How steep the roof is, and how many obstacles like dormers. Because my roof is steep and they needed staging, it slowed them down. Even though I didnt have any dormers, the pitch it seemed made a lot of contractors give a high price. I got a 30 year GAF Laminated shingle with Deck Armor, Grace Ice and water shield. Plus I had two layers that had to be removed. I would recommend mgkroofing. com

Rubber roof installed over existing asphalt roof
Amount: $2,500.00
Posted by: Bronx NY home owner in Bronx, NY.Posted: August 13th, 2009 11:08AM
Type: Sq Ft of Roof: 800
The contract does not mention removal of old roof but it does require use of a torch during installation. A friend said that you can't use a torch on asphalt, it will rapidly burn right through. Rubber roofs must be torched directly on to the ply wood. Few months later roof has many leaks. Walking on the roof is like walking on a waterbed. there is water between the old asphalt and new rubber roof. Was I swindled? Can I sue?Any Tips?

I don't know how costly the material itself is, but one guy did the whole thing in about four hours. He didn't remove the slate tiles that were down, he just put the Firestone roofing sheets over whatever was there. Was I ripped off?

Signed a contract for a new tear off roof to be done with 4tab shingles. They are also reinstalling gutters with new flashing becaus my flashing is shot! Somewhat concerned about the price but in the long run worth it because haven't had a roof in 25+ years.

Type: Spanish Tile roofSq Ft of Roof: 4000
Contractor: Hayven Roofing
I have 2300 sq ft house with gentle slope roof that you can walk on. I'm not sure whether 4000 square foot roof area is accurate. The estimate I got to replace paper under the tiles and putting old tiles back on is $12,000. It includes two layers of 40bls paper, metal flashings all around and replacing rotten wood. I only spotted one face board and one plank of leave that needed to be replaced. Only few tiles now are broken. Does this sound like a good deal?

Posted by: a user in spfld, MA.Posted: March 23rd, 2009 09:03PM
I do a lot of roofing on side. I am just guessin that if you have 15 sq roof supplies and disposal would run you about $1500-$2500 where I live depending on how many layers is on there. Then labor to strip and shingle the house would be about and $2000-$2500 depending on actual slope of roof. So I would probably charge $4000-$5000. for whole roof. so You tile roofer seems to be giving you high estimates. For $9500 I could fly out with a crew and have a few vacation days.

Contractor: All American Roofing
I was actually very happy with the estimate I received. The guy was on time with both appointments, the estimate was way under what I expected and the shingles have a 30 year warrantee on them. I haven't had the job completed yet but I do believe that "do I need this?" you should get more than one estimate.

Type: 26 tilesSq Ft of Roof: metal and asphalt
Contractor: Western Roofing
A company specializing in metal roofs was in the neighborhood giving estimates. First, one guy came and walked around the roof to measure everything and make a diagram; a few days later, a guy came and calculated the estimates. Our house is only 1,300 square feet with a medium slant to our roof, but it seems like they come up with a lot of square feet for our roof. He came up with about $15,000 for a metal roof, and said he'd take $800 off if we paid right now. He claimed asphalt shingle would cost $9,500-$13,000 depending on whether it was single sheet or 3-ply layered.
