flat roof work roofing prices


Hey folks new to the site here. Just wondering what kinds of prices people are paying/getting for flat roof work? Service, leaks, repairs, even re-roofs. How much $/sq on re-roofs are people getting? Thanks for the info.

Bull,
My kid brother does the flat roofs. He's actually a union commercial roofer. Works for the big roofing companies. Just talking to him about it, there are many variables to a flat roof besides the different types of materials available. He doesn't price anything without looking at it.

Exactly. Do you want a Honda, A chevy, a Buick, or a Corvette? With or without heated seats? Power Windows? Performance Package? Extended warranty? The options are nearly endless. Same is true with roofing.

How tall? What's the access? WHat's actually being done? What materials are being used? How are they being applied?

Exactly. And the correct answer is "about $36k". Then they have to ask what kind of car you can expect to get for $36k, and THEN we get to the meat of the matter, and true communication happens.
