We would upcharge up to $50.00 per squares for anything non walkable. Say an 8 0r 9 pitch we would add another $25 per square.
Were from North Jersey and the roofing business has takena nose dive to say the least. It is the winter and we did just get hit with another storm but things better pick up in a hurry next month or well be out of business.
Hows it for you?
[quote]I base on a 7:12 and under for 30 year GAF right now at about $220-230, then charge for everything else. pipes, vents, drip edge, flashings, I&W if needed, chimney flashings, skylights, etc etc.
Can you go in more details on prices for these items please.
What about tear-off - 1 / 2 layers pricing? Or is tear off included in that $220-230? if it is included, you still have to charge more for 2nd / 3rd layer.
I always thought these were included in the square price… I mean you have to calculate this stuff every time you measure a roof.
This info is for the online roof calculator tool. it calculates roofing prices for different roofing materials, but since most people are interested in shingles, which we do not install, I want to know what you guys charge.
I want this roofing calculator to be more or less universal from state to state, yet pretty accurate.
That’s why I want pricing info from different states.
I’m still fine-tuning the algorithm, and it is work in progress.
I will be adding premium for steeper roofs soon, but also want it to be more in touch with reality of roofing world :mrgreen:
BTW, let me know what you think and what I can improve / add to this roofing calculator.
Cool. My base price is pretty much 225/square. I’m pretty much with agape on the markups for slope. I will also mark up about 25 bucks a square for a 2 story.
I lose a lot of jobs because of prices to replace flashing. We have a lot of old masonite siding around here and getting new flashing in can be a bear, if not sometimes downright impossible without ruining the siding. But a lot of folks don’t want to hear any of that. I will usually charge about 4-5 bucks a foot to replace steps where I have to fight the siding. 200-250 bucks to re-flash a reasonably sized chimney, copper is more.
All this being said I have done 1 story walkables for 200 a square (arcs) or 180 (3tabs) and still found them profitable. Only if the roof is wide open and no flashing other than boots or vents.
I price per square foot . I will not do any strip and reroof for under 4. I dont care if its a ranch or not. some can be 10. per sq foot or more if in the metro west suberbs. A lot of roofs there are 40 foot ladders and cut up victorians.south shore , cape cod and islands love cedar roofs. A roof is a roof, got to do it all or your not a real roofer.
That is cool that 4 is your minimum. I am not saying you charge too much. You charge what you need to charge and if your getting it, thats awesome. You have a long standing business and an excellent reputation. If I priced a 1 story suburban ranch at 400/square here, I would have 0 chance of getting it. And I like to roof. So I price competitively and keep my overhead as low as I can.

same here. nobody gets 4 on a single story anything here, unless its lifetime shingles. ive seen people selling 30 years for $150-160 installed.
i dont usually go below $200 unless its a buddy deal, or someone who just needs it bad.
I pay 73 bucks a square for timberlines right now. Best and Home depot are selling them for that. Plus felt and nails and ice shield I figure roughly 100 bucks for materials.
I would like to think I could regularly get 3 to 350, but I know I will lose even more jobs than I do already pricing at that. Perhaps I still haven’t broken into the appropriate customer base yet.
30 year shingles are around 100. per sq. and going up.
trash is 90. per ton if I truck it “a bargain” accessories have also all gone way up in price. A journeyman roofer gets 25 to 30 per hour. dont even get me started on insurance costs.
