I have a 2200 sq ft house in middle georgia. Just got a estimate to re roof for $18,500. This includes removing old shingles and felt and reroofing with 25 yr 3 tab shingles, reflashing around chimney, reflashing around sides of dormer,
The breakdown is as follows - remove shingles $48/sq, install shingles and felt $138/sq, steep pitch charge $38 sq., remove and install new ridge vent $650, reflash chimney $700, apply Hydro-stop sealant over brick above roof line at 3 sides $780. Various other up to $18,500.
I think this sound very high for a house this size. I would like to use this roofer because they are reputable but I can’t pay this.
I could probably apply the Hydro stop on the chimney as I imagine it is simply something applies with a pump up sprayer. Does any of you guys know what is involved in applying this sealant? Where do you buy it?
I have been able to determine that he roofer overestimated the # of square by about 18 squares because I have the original invoice for shingles when the house was originally build. If I factor this in I can reduce the estimate by about $3800 and if I could do the shdro-stop myself that would reduce it by another $780 which gets the cost of the roof down to about $14,000 which is still seems high to me?
What do you pros think?
