Keep in mind that a higher price doesn't always mean the best quality, especially if the contractor you hire uses subcontractors to do the actual work. Subcontractors usually don't get paid that much, so they often focus on volume, meaning they may sometimes have to cut back on expenses. Please note that this must be done during the installation of the new roof, not after. Make sure it is done in a way that does not void the shingle manufacturer's warranty.
For a 1,400 square foot house, we can estimate the roof size to range between 1,600 and 1,800 square meters. The price per square can often be higher when a roof has many complex features, such as side walls, multiple chimneys, and skylights or attics. Will the contractor also install new plywood after removing the old cedar slats? Some wooden shaking ceilings have a dashboard covering, which means there are spaces on the roof terrace, so it's a little worrisome, your quote didn't mention installing plywood instead of wall cladding. This is about 3,000 square meters of good size.
Or a 30-square reroofing job, which means there are a lot of advantages for the installer doing the job. Step covers and any other previous covers should only be reused if they are in good condition and there is no damage to the roof cover. Old fences with drip edges and gables are often damaged when removing the old roof, so it is preferable to install new covers and completely repair the roof cover, as needed, during a roofing job.

Any recommendations regarding prices in this pandemic? And what are my options, since this house could be demolished in 10 or 15 years? My house has 810 square meters. The roof is 20 years old. There are some leaks around the chimney, and the water enters the attic. Dear Roof uncle, are the square feet of the roof always bigger than those of the house? I have a 2,350 square foot house, but the roof price is 2,800 square meters.
Does this seem correct in terms of the difference in square footage between the house and the roof? Yes, the actual roof area is always greater than the square footage of the house's floor plan, because there are often two-foot overhangs on each side of the roof, in addition to the roof slope to take into account. Some roofs may also have peaks, attics, and valleys that can add square footage to the roof topology. According to the quote, the total square footage of your roof, including the garage, is 3,700 square feet. As the contractor responsible for this work, I would add another 300 square feet.
Of materials to take into account the cutting of the tiles and the waste of materials, which brings us to a total of 40 squares of materials needed for the work. That said, the price difference is usually not due so much to the difference in the cost of the materials, but rather to the best warranty you can get from the asphalt shingle manufacturer when a certified contractor installs the roof. How many squares (squares) %3D 100 square feet. From the real surface of the roof) is it the ceiling? Know the area of the roof, or at least the area of the floor plan, and the amount of work involved (level of difficulty, number of attics and valleys, number of layers of old tiles to remove, etc.).
I need to have my roof changed. I live on a plot of 1,750 square meters. The current roof is about 20 years old. You're right to assume that Home Depot has a huge profit margin on its home services, while contractors who ultimately install the roof are paid a fixed amount per square meter.
Rhino did an exceptional job cleaning what he had done, and made a magnet work to attract stray roof nails and pick up all the garbage and various debris.

If these are modern sheets, if it is a roof made of asphalt shingles, then you should replace it with 30-year-old tiles, as they will provide better protection against wind rise than 3-tab tiles. I imagine your roof had 3-tab tiles before the wind damaged your house.
In addition, as a homeowner, I must understand that I can be held responsible for anything that happens on my property during installation. Therefore, I prefer to pay more for a quality product and reliable service. I want to deal with a company that employs a well-trained team and offers workers' compensation. There are too many contractors running a shady operation, employing illegal workers without rights or workers' compensation.
These are the companies that tend to cut costs, do careless work, have low safety standards, and are nowhere to be found when warranty claims begin to arrive. Our view is that it is possible that the roofing contractor may stop being in business in 30 years. Therefore, it seems that the contractor is using the long warranty to justify the high price, which is not right. From the northeast, of the Massachusetts area, and I've been looking for quotes to re-roof a roof of 840 square feet in total, which I rounded to 900 square feet to be generous.
However, the important thing I see here is that you acted as your own general contractor and the roofers you hired were basically contract workers. So, if you live in Florida, you might want to know how much it costs to replace the roof and get the best possible deal to spend your hard-earned money. That makes a lot of sense, with the threat of storms and hurricanes hitting the Florida coast, that roof must be well installed, which is not cheap. It includes replacing all the valleys, the metal on the edges, the ventilation covers, the roof to the wall covers and the covers around the chimney.
In short, this quote seems like a very reasonable offer, assuming that contractors are properly licensed and insured and provide a minimum 5-year labor guarantee for their roofing work. No two roofs are exactly the same, and if you've ever had to cover towers and transitions, such as in Victorian houses, you'll surely understand why it costs more to work on some roofs than others. One thing to keep in mind as a homeowner is that almost NO composite tile roof will last 50 years. Also note that when you obtain most roofing components from Owens Corning, you will get an extended material warranty from the manufacturer.
