I'm in Florida, my mother in law lives on the DE PA border. She's thinking she needs a new roof before the winter hits. Her house is 40 plus years with 2 layers of shingles that need to come off. I'm looking for a quality job, nothing cheap but don't rip her off. Does anyone have any idea's of what it cost's per square ( approximately ) to remove and replace shingles. looking for dimensional, 30 year or better. I know we can't get exact costs here but approx. price per square these dayz. Any suggestions on roofers who did a great job on your house? Thanks

wow, no good roofers in the northern DE/PA area????? Maybe this will help. Mom for some reason called a large reputable roofer up there and ended up signing a contract for, ok, sit down, $ 23,000 plus some change. That's for a friggin shingle job with new osb wood sheets. HELP! Do you think their over charging her a little? Her roof has no leaks, I have no idea why she called, maybe she wanted to talk to someone??? He talked ok, right into a big bonus pay check.

While we have not had our roof done, we did have a roofer come out and my husband thinks he will use him when we are ready: Scott Hurlock at 302-654-2783. His estimate on our 4k sq ft home was about 10K. Scott has a website--hurlockroofing.com. I looked at Yellowpages.com and there is one 5-star rating for Lane Roofing: 302-652-7663. Of course, you do not know who wrote the glowing review but it could be legitimate. Another company to look at is PJ Fitzpatrick and they always have some type of special going. 302-482-4041, P.J. Fitzpatrick Vinyl Replacement Window Installation and Repair. Good luck and let us know who you use and how good a job they did. You also might want to DM Armx, who is a licensed realtor. Realtors usually know many contractors.

Depending on how old your mom is, you might contact a lawyer and see if you can get out of that contract.

We renovated several properties and always went with a company called American Roofing and Waterproofing. Reasonable prices & reliable guys who always cleaned up after themselves.

I would steer clear of P.J.Fitzpatrick, they have had major quality control problems,and disgruntled employees, Trust me I know. I've heard of Hurlock. Also that price sounds absolutely ridiculously HIGH. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how contractors take advantage of seniors, becuase most don't know, and are either desperate to get the work done, or are too trusting. HOPEFULLY your mom DID NOT pay that much to have her roof done. Fedale roofing comes to mind, when I think of roofs, because their signs are everywhere in peoples yards. They do a lot of work, especially on hi-end homes and estates, but again they are VERY high priced. Definitely shop around, get free estimates, references, and make sure they are licensed, insured, and are in good standing with the bestter business bureau

Boyles Roofing and Contracting are our family's favorite 'go to' for a roof. Company has a Clayton, DE address, but they work throughout the state. As a family, we tend to stick together for any roofing/contracting services needed. We had a roof installed by them, and so did both of our sons, 3 neighbors, and us again on another house. Work was well done, quick, and reasonable. It pays to support local contractors, and when the good word gets around, they don't need to advertise.
