ballpark roof estimate


Roofers who claim to be insurance specialists are mostly scam artists. We in the industry call them storm chasers. The majority are complete manure.

Call out some "real" reputable local roofers who have been around before the storms and ask them for estimates. If they ask to see the insurance papers upfront, tell them no, that you will show them after. Feel free to show them as they may be able to get more money out of theinsurance company. In my experience the insurance companies never pay real world fair market value. LOL we'll do it for what ever the insurance is paying LOL. Those are some A holes!



Now that I read Copper's post that the thread is 3 years old LOL Oops. Silver just wanted to brag how great the GArbageF shingles were.

We recommend GAF products that have been reformulated over the last 3 years to offer the lifetime system plus on their formerly 30 yr shingle when you choose one of their certified or master elite contractors. You can find one by visiting www.GAF.com and put your zip code in. Dont get me wrong, we carry more than one MFG. but the other shingle MFGS. followed suit with the warranty but didn't do the research that GAF did. Anyway, if I were pricing your quote, considering multiple factors, such as pitch and stories, layers, and other minute issues it would be on the low side just above 14,000 and the high side of it would still be under 16,000. Hope this helps. Please! Do your research on companies. Call your state Department of Labor and Licensing, and your local Better Business Bureau, ask for references of work done in your area and ride by to see if you like the work. Do these things and choose local and you are sure to find all you need.

Haha , who told you that? And why would you believe that?

I want to point out that pricing is very regional. The prices silver pointed out between 14-16k are sickening. I would lost money doing a 69 square job with average details for $16k. Any prices you ever read on the internet should be taken with a grain of salt and should never mean anything to anyones decision making process.
