Cost for new roof in Florida?

Hello all. I am about to refinance my house and need to get a new roof. I am just looking for a rough cost on a house that is 3000 sq.ft. I want to have the old one torn out completely, including the ceiling. The one we have now is completely destroyed by termites(thank God that's the only part of the house made of wood!). We don't have any use for an attic, all it's good for is collecting possums. We want a simple raised roof, nothing spectacular. I'm in Miami, in unincorporated South Miami Dade county, if that makes a difference...Thanks for any info :D

I recommend getting your three most trusted roofing companies out to see what they have to say.

Is the rest of your house concrete?

Yes. It prolly would have fallen down around us a long time ago had it not been.
I was just looking for a general figure. I am trying to get approximate amounts for certain things so I have a better idea of how much I will have left from the loan for other re-modeling projects around the house..

If I were replacing a roof there or here, It would be a mansard and meet the high velocity wind codes even if it wasn't required in my area. Just food for thought. I Ieft that area in '79 and have no idea what they are charging now.
