Yesterday I had Home Depot come over to give me a quote on re-roofing my 15 square 6/12 pitch hipped gable roof. The quote included tear-off of three layers, permits, dumpster, gutters, 4 downspouts and choose of 3 different GAF Shingles. The house itself is 19’x44’. I have one chimney, two skylights and one dormer. For the slatelines they wanted $11,408.00, for 25-30yr shingle $11,600 something & for the life time architectual shingle they wanted $12,488.00. I wondered how they came up this quote, which was broken down for me: The Lifetime was
About $8,000.00+ for just the roof, enderlayment and a ridge vent
About $2,104.00 for seamless gutters
$1000.00+ for downspouts &
$1,200.00 for a dumpster.
I knew from the get they wouldn’t be cheap but $600.00 a square is pretty ridiculous in my opinion seeing that they get a huge discount on their bulk material orders and pay their subs nothing for doing all the work.
What do you think this job should cost?
