Roofing cost
Whats the typical price per square for a top quality reroof. Ie tearoff and replacement on a steep two story house using 30-40 year shingles in Illinois.

Estimates are typically done for free or with a very small fee, applicable to the purchase if you go with that contractor.

There are too many unknowns for a realistic guess for you without seeing and verifying the measurements.

The prices could range from $ 9,500.00 on up, which depends on what necessary accessories are included in the proposal.

Balanced, or as close to possible, Intake and Exhaust Ventilation specifications need to be calculated, depending on what your existing situation is now.

And Ed is more homeowner-friendly than most pricewise.

Actually, there could be an additional $ 2,000 to $ 3,000 added on for all of the accessories, but that is pure speculation without looking at it and measuring it firsthand.

Also, by walking on the roof surface or if not walkable, then viewing it from the gutter eave edge, I could tell the condition of the existing decking too.

Estimates can vary in one region
Let alone across the US & Internet without a visual or any measurements

Material alone on my 864 sq ft addition will be over $1k
That's just roofing
If any rafters or plywood needs to be repairer/replaced then its more $$
