Cerberus is in Houston, I’m in Austin. Cerb knows the labor rates in Texas just as much as I do, even though he’s not so much into residential…
For a “retail” total re-roofing, 1 story, walkable, no deck repair, no reglet work or anything out of the ordinary, a reasonable price range should be:
Top end, 33 squares, including 2 bundles of “TRUE” starter.
Price range: 4,500.00 to 5,000.00. & This would include around 40 ft. of ridge vent, Cobra III.
I’m sure this post will get a lot of “You’re crazy! How can you make money??” responses from the Northern roofers, however you have to remember two things:
–We’ve been down this road A LOT here on this forum
–Texas does not require licensure or workman’s comp for roofing.
Bottom line: You’ve spent way too much money on parts & will probably end up spending way too much money on labor.
A resonable cost for a “sub crew” to do the installation only portion of your roof is 25.00 per square, with trash haul for another 200.00 tops.
Looks to me like you just spent about $ 1,000.00 too much (maybe even more).
