A roofer wants to charge me $3900 to replace 800 square feet of architectural shingle on my roof. It is a simple flat section and is nothing complicated. I'm awaiting other estimates, but would appreciate reactions on whether this is a fair price. Thanks!

I paid $6600 for 3300 sq ft 3 years ago. That included ripping 2 old layers.

Is it flat or sloped? Confused by your question. You said, "simple flat section" but then said, "architectural shingle". Flat roofs don't usually get architectural shingles? They usually get EPDM or Liberty Roll Roof. Is this a flat roof or typical sloped roof?

Paid $4000 including tip a few years ago - ripping off two layers from 3200 sqft roof , plus replacing one 6x8 wood panel. Member of the local fire department did it for me.

Thanks to all for your responses and sorry for any confusion. It's a regular section of a sloped roof without any turns or other complicated work.
