Default Cost for a new roof in SA?

Trying to get an idea as to the cost of replacing my roof. Needs new roof & some repair to eaves thanks to dryrot from previously incorrectly installed roof {they didn't do the metal on the edges to prevent leaks}.

I would like to replace with a metal roof if I can, but cost is a big factor. We will be paying in cash so maybe can get a cash discount.

Anyways - my house is around 34' by 50' {guesstimating} and is 1488 sw ft with attached 2 car garage.

Any ideas as to cost?

Hard to say how much a roof would cost. A lot will depend on who does it, what type of shingles you select or if you opt for metal - the most expensive. My parents just had a roof put on their house - they have a 12X12 pitch, single story, about 3,000 square feet (includes the garage) and it cost them about $18,000. But they went high end on the shingles and went with one of the better crews out there - Cloud Roofing.

On the metal drip edges - there are different schools of thought. If you have metal drip edges done incorrectly it can cause more rot than not having them at all. It is all in the installation. There are good and bad companies out there - and good companies that have just so-so crews. Make sure you are comfortable with the super. In my parents case - he is a family friend and was out there and up on the roof several times each day to make sure things were done perfectly.

A good roof is not cheap - even if you go with shingles.

I had to have my roof replaced last year and it was about $3000 for regular composition shingles on an approx. 30' x 30' pitched roof.

Do you know what pitch your roof is? Also how many valleys do you have? When pricing a roof - the more valleys and variation to a roof adds to the cost of installation.

We paid about $2900 two years ago. I cannot speak to the specifics. I just know what it cost me. No leaks. No problems.

Don't know the pitch offhand, but there's just one valley.

Bumping this thread to ask for recommendation on roof repair/replacement. Not sure what I need yet but my roof is old and need to have it evaluated. I have a ranch style home, 1200 sq ft with 2 car garage, nothing too fancy on the angles but it is sorta steep. I welcome your feedback...thanks in advance!

If you are looking for a roofing company that will be around when you need them, do a great job per manufacturers recommendations, been in the business probably longer than you've been alive, a family oriented business, you're looking to call Rolands Roofing. They are reasonable in price but not cheap. Cheap means the guy probably won't be around should you have any issues later. Most of the cheap guys do not have insurance and most of their crew is straight out of the Texas Penitentiary. The roofing industry seems to attract quite a number of those guys. Make sure whoever you hire that they have insurance and demand a copy of it. Should one of the workers fall off of the roof, guess who is going to get sued......YOU! Buyer beware.

The height and pitch of the roof will affect the new roof cost as well as the cutting required and flashing.

So between $5000.00 to $10,000.00.
