Not going to drag this blog out talking about getting estimates, pulling permits & architectural shingles. You guys know the drill already. If a contractor tells you more than $10k — tell him you’re no dummy. You read RandlettPark.com and everything on the ‘net is true.
Look gang — all of our homes are approximately the same size, which means our roofs are too. Replacing your roof is going to cost you about $7,500 and take 2-3 days. The job will cost a bit more if 2 layers of shingles have to be ripped off or if you decide to replace the flashing around the chimney or do any re-pointing. Make sure to pull a permit.
Also make sure the contractors clean up afterwards using a magnetic rake. You don’t want to have shingles in the yard or gutters. Or nails in the yard. A nail gets caught in the mower and Boom! you wind up looking like Mr. Larson from Happy Gilmore.
