Pipe Boot Repair/Replace


I have 2 pipe boots that have been quoted replacement at $339 each. This seems excessive to me and I'm wondering if there is an approximate cost that I should expect. The roof is standard pitch and accessible.

When we do repairs we charge a service fee & then hourly after that plus material costs.
We do not do estimates.
The problem is that this guy has to come out twice to do a minor repair & you may call 3 guys for "estimates"
He is trying to make money on estimating repairs that he may never get.
Not the way we work & you would probably be getting them both done for the price of 1(depending if shingles needed to be purchased/found)

Is this a shingle, tile, slate, wood shake, metal on a flat, steep, one story or two story roof?

When I base my pricing it is a direct indication of the cost of living in my area, in new york city my base price would be higher, in new orleans it would be lower.

No matter why your not feeling confident in this roofer get a second, third, fourth, etc., opinion.

I have a high pitched roof and was charged about $185 for a boot replacement.

If this was a slate roof, it would probably run ya about a grand.

This is DIY chatroom, therefore questions pertaining to the prices that contractors charge for work are strongly discouraged because they have nothing to do with DIY work. If you need help with how to replace the boots yourself, you've come to the right place.

Best advice is get a couple estimates so you can compare.
