recent estimate

Just wanted to see what people thought of this roofing estimate I just got. Is it about right??

It is $3000 for approx 900 sq ft (on roof, not house dimensions), second story std colonial no dormers and 1 chimney, tear off, new #15 felt, pipe collar flashings, 25 year 3-tab tamko slate asphalt shingles. This includes set up of scaffolding and removal of trash. Says if sheathing needs replaced, will be $3.50/sq ft.

Thanks much!!

That is a pretty fair estimate. I would be right about the same price. If you are comfortable with the roofer, I would probably stop looking. Good Luck

What pitch? where are you from? It seems a little high of a price but depending on location and pitch it might be right on.

I am in Richmond, VA and the roof pitch is about 8/12 I believe. That's my rough calculation by measuring my attic height and 1/2 depth of house.

oh yeah...I forgot to say that the reason I wanted to look into this estimate is mainly because this estimate was done fairly recently after hurricane isabelle hit and I wasn't sure if people were giving high estimates b/c a lot of other jobs were being covered by insurance.

I guess that estimate is not too far off, I would be at $2420 for 1 layer or $2780 for 2 layers + wood replacement. I do a few in your area a year but my price is the same as in MD while others in VA charge a little more. I would still get 1 or 2 more estimates, jmo
