Roof Cost

Who will buy the shingles?
What is your location?
A little more information would help the pros give you a better answer.

Ask a roofing company in your area. Labor rates vary from place to place.

sbfd...there's so many variables, (type and condition of roof, type of shingles, location, availability of work) its real difficult for someone to give an accurate number.

I know where I used to live in Norfolk VA, a company would ON AVERAGE charge about $100 a square for regular shingles. That could go up if they were the architectural shingles, or a lot of penetrations, valleys, flashing, etc.

I also know that there were lots of people who did it as side work or were retired and just working for cash, who would do it for half that number.

Those are Astrodome type ballpark numbers.

Easiest is to just call a few companies and ask what the standard rate is for just what you described. I would think most will give a rough figure over the phone.

a suggestion for a relatively small job. Drive around your neighborhood looking for a roofing job in progress and try to recruit some roofers who are putting on another roof to do it for you. You may be able to get it done for around $45 a square.
