Pitch?, how many layers tear off?, dormers?, chimney(s)?, valleys? vent(s) type?

I'm coming up with right at 4600 bucks, not including disposal, for a simple 30 square ranch style.

I got around $5300 for the 30 year shingles at 30 square. That includes dumping, but not the vents, etc.

If you have questions regarding how much to estimate, I would recommend contacting several different insurance companies in the area and say you are a roofing trying to get the projected rates they use for apprasials (damage).

This is low compared to FL. My lowest bid for 22 sq. was $6700, 30 yr, architecturals.

Florida roofing :)
I was down in fort meyers on vacation recently. So much building to be done. Also so much damage from those damn hurricanes.

How difficult is it to get shingles down there right now?

Here, we are beginning to have roofers begging for work. Only 2-4 wks. out. I should have mine pretty soon after an 8 wk. wait but I'm going metal.

It makes a huge difference in the price.
I understand the extras make a huge difference in price. I'm looking for the price per square to charge for an easily walkable roof ripping off one layer, installing a 30yr architectual shingle. I will then add in the extra charge for cobra vents, chimney flashings, valleys, etc... All this is for jobs in central NJ

Gotcha...

Tear off one layer labor 35-37 a square
Install labor... 75-80 a square
felt and flet labor... 6 - 8 a square
30 year archi material ... 125 a square

That's for my local area, which is darned close to your local market.

Thank you mdshunk. When you say install labor 75-80 a square do you mean you would charge 125 a square + 75-80 a square to install a 30yr archi shingle.

Actually it's a guy who could work circles around you with plenty of years of experience who has recently started his own business and has never had to deal with pricing. So unless you could help me with pricing or you need help from me with a job your on, I would suggest remembering that there was a time that even you didn't know everything. Thank you.
Now back to business, the question from my last post still stands?

Yep, among many other tidbits. Felt, ice&water shield, hip and ridge shingles, drip edge, boots, etc.

Where's Grumpy at, anyhow? He's the roof guy.

I pulled this from an insurance quote I had copied from a client:

Remove Asphalt 3 tab composition: UC: $40
Replace Asphalt 3 tab composition: UC $107.75
Replace Ridge Vent for composition: UC $5.17
Dump Fee: $13
Ice Shield $3LF

The insurance company quoted the project at costing $3500, we bid and received at $4200. The insurance company was willing to payout upto $4500.

The dump fee was much to low for the costs (almost $100 to low).

So these numbers are a bit low. I am in the Midwest. Iowa to be specific.

Again, it would not hurt at all to get the figures from local insurance companies. I'm sure they are more than willing to hand out figures. Just remember they will give out lower figures than what they will ultimately pay out. Like I stated above, they estimated the job at $3500-4500. The figures above reflect the $3500 price.
