I need help with BASIC estimating for a new roof. The aprox. roof size is 75 x 40, low pitch, ranch style with no gables or frills and is located in northern California - Bay Area. Gutters and felting are in good shape, but the existing cedar shake is a total mess but I really like the look when it's new. Concrete tile seems too heavy so thats out. Composition shingle/shake seems good, natural cedar shake is beautiful but I don't like the maintenance, and stone coated steel is very interesting.
Is there anyway to figure a square foot price on all the above ? Anything within a couple thousand dollars would be OK. Manufacturers websites don't want to tell you.
Sometimes the savings that comes from doing it yourself can be blown away with one mistake.
