Default Quick Estimate for new CompShingle roof on a 1200 sf house?

I'm just doing a REO addendum, just wanna find out pretty quick how much should I charge for roof replacement on a 1200 sf house built in the 70s'. The roof is worn out and has black debris all over. Thanks~

I guess that depends on what kind of roof, the roof shape, and the square footage of the roof. Its a 1200 sf home but if its a two story the roof would be less than 1200sf. There's not enough info to answer the question properly. I suggest you consult a cost guide. If you don't have the standard Marshall & Swift, I suggest you to to Amazon.com and at least pick up their Home Remodel and Repair guide.

According to the MS Remodel & Repair guide, composition shingles are 1.55/sf (standard) But that won't include labor, felt paper, venting, etc.

Agreed. Cost will vary quite significantly.

RS Means 2007 = 8.73 s/f (includes labor and all other costs exept the location factor.)

Around here you would expect to pay $30 per square for average shingles and $100 per square for removal & installation.

It also depends on the area that you are in Cali-- SF will have a different cost then LA or San Degio. Just like different parts of the county. Your costs, profit, overhead, labor costs, are all going to be different. I would suggest the Marsh & Swift (they dont have profit), Local contractors, etc.
good luck...

Webb's interpretation of this question:

"Hi! I don't want to learn how to do anything for myself, I just want someone to tell me the answer to my question that lacks the information to answer it."


Damn, we sure show how professional we are, or are not, on this forum all the time. Don't we? Kinda like accepting an assignment for REO work when not even knowing how to estimate the cost to replace a roof.

I would have respected the question a lot more if it had of been for information on how to do this BEFORE the assignment was accepted!

Mr. Lopez,

So we provide meaningless costs per square foot as an answer back to someone asking that is completely out of our market area and may very well have completely different labor costs? Does not tell us the construction quality, or what the market demands for that house regarding quality of roofing? And gives us no idea of roofing pitch or materials being used in the quote?

You guess at all this and answer? Now my only question is what showed more irresponsibility? The question, or the answer?

Webbed.
