Default roofing price

Thinking of doing a new asphalt shingle roof. I know there have been many threads on this in past but prices so crazy now I am sure any numbers are far outdated. Simple gable form. No dormers, low pitch. Any one have a rough idea of price per square including removal of old shingles? Thats assuming I can even find someone who can do it in the next year.

With a son that is a roofer, it isn't so simple to compare price points. You may get varying price points. But you need to get into the nuts and bolts, beyond just removing the old roof, and installing the new roof.... Additional questions to be considered are as follows:

- Once the old roof is off, how much work is going to be needed for repairs
- how far up is ice and water shield going to be used
- beyond the ice and watershield what is going to be used as underlayment
- what shingles are going to be used.
- does any flashing need to be re-work/replaced

Considering it is the lake region, this is how much it is going to cost.

Most contractors are out straight now and if you can get one to respond are throwing out crazy numbers not expecting the job. I went clamming with a contractor friend yesterday and he told me things are insane now. He even said that no one should even be thinking about building a new home today with prices so inflated.

The problems is Lakes Region Contractors always operate in that mode. Three are so few of them.

As far as building a new home I agree with your friend. Contractors are getting a premium at this time....And they are going to whom ever is willing to pay the most.

A plumber, electrician, carpenter, landscaper, appliance repair person should not be making as much as a radiologist, attorney, engineer etc. then have the chutzpah to deny $15.00 min wage for the fast food workers.

Not saying I disagree with your radiologist analogy, but Much Much more skilled and education required along with licenses and insurance than a person at McDonalds that can't get a burger order right. And could be life or death with people's home and financial well being

Having completed or should I say payed for a complete roof job a few years back. I would advise you select a known one in the area and book it. Prices will vary, but not by that much. As others have written, things will be found that need repair as they remove the existing roof which will add to the final price. My estimate was 18k with a final price of 26k. Both metal and fiberglass. New drip edges and gutters. Cricket repair and skylight removal. Waited 6 months and happy with the results

What is involved with "cricket repair"?

The skylight leaked?

The cricket is the raised backside of your chimney. Small flashing leak caused rot. The skylight was 22 years old. Replace with new or remove all together. Was never a fan of where it was placed when original installed, but had no say at the time. Also, we added ice and shield over the entire roof not just 6 feet up. Also, new vent boots all round. Little added cost but worth it.

I had my roof done 5 years ago. I found Lakes region roofers to be very expensive. I got roofers from Ma to come up and do the roof, 10 guys, 1 day, done. I supplied the dumpster from Dumpster Depot. I was getting prices at that time of 12 to 14K, had it done for 8K.
They are all busy today so you probably couldn't get them to drive up for a job now.

Crazy high. Just received a quote for a 430 sq ft deck stain job (2 coats), 40% of it is new decking, but lots of 1x spindles, $2,200. I’ll take 3 weeks part time and do it myself.

Crazy high everywhere. We just blew $18k for an 8x10 full bathroom remodel and were quoted $8k to replace the decking and railings on a 14x16 deck.

Unless it's an emergency, I'd think it would make sense to hold off a bit. It's an unsustainable system right now.

At nearly $8 for a 2x4x8 it doesnít take long to add up, fortunately the government says thereís no inflation! I wonder how bad it will be when they do?

Very true and not only that when you consider the trades, there is a TON of overhead with tool and equipment costs that can easily reach in to the millions of dollars. Plus there are annual costs for licensing and code training and so forth. Never mind these blue collar jobs are not something just anyone can do either.

Some seem to forget that the cost of overhead is worked into the numbers and that the guy doing the work is paid a fraction of that.

Not to disparage a fast food worker, but lets be real - that is unskilled labor and anyone trying to make a career out of a job like that can look at themselves in the mirror as to why they are struggling in life. $15.00 an hour will do nothing to make their situation any better. Getting themselves educated or work themselves into an actual skilled career will. Even if that is working their way up into a higher position at a fast food joint.

Choose your shingle brand closely.
Keep all receipts.

I have had two premature failures with roof shingles in the past 3 decades.
Check the warranties.
Only the shingles are warranted. So money back is only for the shingles and not the labor.

All/most carpenters do roofs. Some better then others.

Also ask if the person that you are talking to is the actual person doing the work. Some will take a job and sub it out to someone else.

As to finding one. Stop into the local lumber yards/building supply and ask.

Note. Having a relative employed in a legal office. More than a few Certified Letters are sent to dedicated roofing companies.

The last roof I had done - I used ice/water shield for entire roof. I also used architectural shingles as opposed to 3 tab.

All of the organic shingles had that problem. And good luck trying to get some money back.

Shingles are very high now as is everything else and also hard to get.

Did get my money back as I had receipts.
Only the cost of the actual roof shingles.
They sent out an adjuster.

We had to go through so much crap, I said had I known I never would have bothered. Roof slopes, more roof slopes etc. The process took about a year before they finally had everything they wanted. Had I known when I began I wouldn't have bothered. My neighbors said the same thing.

Is it even possible to know one way or another during a pandemic?

Also, it's interesting how different products have different narratives. When people talk about the costs of docks/boats, etc. increasing, it's in terms of "supply and demand" capitalism, but when home products are discussed, it's inflation.

Knowing which is true is not in my skill set, but I'm confident enough to think these markets can't continue on the way they have been forever.
