HERE IS AN ESTIMATE I GOT FOR MY RESIDENT HOUSE:

The home Above Grade Living Area: 1,256 SF

I now apparently have Certainteed Horizon Shingles (roof installed 5/1998 by prior owner) that from my layperson inspection don't look worn out:

If there is anything about this that is incomplete, please advise.

A neighbor said that most quotes now are coming in inflated and I should negotiate. Do Mr Landlord folks agree on this point?

Cheaper than I have paid to have roofs replaced (did 3) right before Covid. Two in Howard Co. & 1 in Montgomery- townhouses. There were over $6000 before replacing rotten wood. I shopped around alot. Of course they were licensed and insured. --108.56.xxx.xx

I don't know about MD, but that would be a good price here.

But only IF they do it right!

Is it an established company with a good reputation? --68.229.xxx.xxx

Even if they gave you a copy of their license and insurance, call the state licensing board and call the insurance company to VERIFY that these are current and in good standing. (Trust but verify!)

Just to be sure. --24.180.xx.xx

That sounds low priced to me, a bargain rate. But then I haven't had roof work done for a couple of years. Materials costs have gone up tremendously. --136.34.xxx.xxx

Is your 1,256 SF figure the SF of the house or the SF of the roof. I'm guessing that it's probably the house & that the roof is more like 1,200 - 1,400 SF. If this is the case then IMO it's an unbelievable low price. Currently around here 1/2" CDX plywood costs about $60.00 a sheet & 3/4" is close to $80.00 a sheet. Unless his $45.00 & $50.00 prices are just to install & don't include removal of the old plywood & providing the new plywood. The rubbish disposal fees here would be close to $400.00 just for the tipping fee.

I don't understand why he would even mention replacing the chimney flashing unless it's obviously bad.

If they are truly insured for both WC & Liability, are properly licensed and appear to have done a decent job on the other roofs that you saw, I say sign up quick before he realizes that they should charge more. --71.184.xxx.xx

I just had quotes on a 1200 sq ft house to replace the roof with new deck and shingles. Old house with barnwood decking.

Prices ranged from $12,000 with a budget contractor and lowest priced shingles to $25,000 for the premium contractor who only uses premium materials and boasts about paying his employees premium wages.

The mid range guy wanted $11,000 plus decking at $90 to $100 per sheet of plywood and he estimated 55 to 65 sheets needed. All prices variable with current market price of materials.

Send your guy my way; I'll gladly pay half price so I can get this one sold. --98.229.xxx.xx

Just wondering - who gave you this estimate to get this work done.....was it a contractor or the insurance company's estimate to get this job done?

A 25 year shingle isn't top of the line - its actually towards the bottom --24.154.xx.x

Ray

No one is advising me on this in particular. I chose to get some estimates b/c I have read that this type of roof has typically 25 yrs life. I just had another roofer here today. He said roof likely has 2 more years left from him looking at it. This roofer did a replacement on house across the street about 2 yrs back, and my house is similar to neighbor's house.

He said I have 2,000 square feet of roof. My real property database record says I have -- home Above Grade Living Area: 1,256 SF. Does that make sense? I have travelers insurance. I called them a few yrs back and they told me a roof replacement is not covered on my policy. Should I up my policy to have this covered? Thanks --108.45.xxx.xxx

this is a summary,

A performance bond is issued to one party of a contract as a guarantee against the failure of the other party to meet obligations specified in the contract. ... A performance bond is usually provided by a bank or an insurance company to make sure a contractor completes designated projects.

BTW, I had a roofer look at a roof when I was buying a building and they said it had a few more years. Then I had them back 3 years later. My cashflow was tight and I couldn't do the roof then and five more years have gone by and I'm doing the roof now. If yours is not leaking, you can buy some time and save up for a better shingle.

And your insurance co. is not going to buy you a roof unless you have hail or damage from wind. --24.194.xxx.xxx

Small Potatoes NY: You write, "A performance bond is issued to one party of a contract as a guarantee against the failure of the other party to meet obligations specified in the contract."

It appears you are saying **I need to have this before I proceed?** Is it my obligation to get it or should the roofer get this and I sign it? Thanks --108.45.xxx.xxx

When we bought our first house in 1999, the inspector told us the roof was at the end of its useful life. We still have the same roof 22 years later. For some things, I don't put too much stock in life expectancy estimates. --100.34.x.xx

Alice - the only time your roof is covered by insurance is if there is some unfortunate event that damages the roof such as a tree falling on it or hurricane or something along those lines.

You are doing the right thing by actually doing the maintenance/replacement required of your home.

Those people that hire roofers to come out and manufacture some damage to the roof so that the insurance co will cover it are defrauding the insurance co. Don't go down that road.

By the way, I had a roof replaced a couple of years ago after much shopping and it was $11,200 for a house about 1800 sf living area (I don't know the number of roofing squares). Your price is exceptionally low - so low it sounds too good to be true. Make sure you are getting multiple quotes from local, trusted roofing contractors. Here you need to have a roof permit. Maybe check with your building department to see who is doing a lot of work in the area. --99.56.xx.xx
