One of the things Connie brought up was that the local guys are
usually know in certain neighborhoods and that is true. You can
gets names in a lot of ways.

One thing that, when reading her post, brought back a memory from
the past is that when employment starts to take a dive you will see a
lot a guys who are not contractors out there doing 'cut rate' work.
At very low prices.

Don't be to drawn in by a low bid, there is a reason it is low. Chances
are it is from someone who is not use to doing the work and don't know
how to price the job or do the job correctly.
Yeah you'll get a good price but you probably wont find them after the
job is finished or if something happens afterwards, you have to check
references from "Job Sites" Former Clients !

Why people do this is beyond me...It is your House!  The largest Investment you'll probably ever make and one that will pay you back
if done correctly.

So many folks worried about having a 50K car or 2-3 for that matter
but when it comes to renovations they want to pitch pennies or worry
about 'over renovating??
Then complain later because of the work the guy they hired done or they
took their money an ran or didnt finish the job.
Well who did you hire?

There are to many ways out there to check somone out , too many ways
to get references and too many ways to assure your job will be done
correctly and professionally... not to use them.

Roof cost varies by the size, pitch and type of shingle. Whether or not your decking needs to be replaced, how many objects are on your roof (vents, attic fans, sola tubes, chimeys etc).

Good roofing contractors can give you an estimate.  Compare estimates, ask for references.   how I found a GREAT roofer in the past was by calling an insurance agent and asking her for names.  Since then the same roofer has replaced a roof on 3 houses for me, I've recommended him multiple times for clients that needed to replace their roof before selling their home, I've had to hire him to do minor repairs in order to close a deal.  I've also discovered a few other Realtors have recommended him more than once becase of the quality, price and professionalism- getting the job done on the schedule he promised. etc.

I don't know if this guy goes as far as Tulsa (doubtful).  but I would expect that you can find similar reccommendations around there too.   Call your insurance agent and ask them if they have some names (doesn't matter if the insurance is paying for the roof, the agent often will have known of roofers and who has been around, does a good job etc).

You should get a roof est. from a local contractor, references is a must!

Your quotes will be given in squares, not to be confused with sq. ft.
You start will reg. measured sq. ft of your roof but then that is divided
by 100 to come up with the sq. count.
Example; if you have 2000sq ft of roof, you would need 20 sq. of shingles.

If you have one layer you can cover it again but if you have 2 already you
will need to strip it , which will be an added cost.
Hand nailed usually cost more also.

Metal roofs have the draw back of being hard to distinguish should the
house catch on fire, that's probably what the other poster was talking
about with them being hard to insure....that nugget of news is from a
fire fighter friend of mine, so I would say it makes sense.

But if you do put a metal roof on...please make sure that if you have 3
vent pipes sticking up out of your old roof, you still have 3 sticking up on
the new metal roof, I have seen them banged in and coverd up on half
the installs I go behind...no joke.

I think you should call local roofing companies and get a quote.

Roofing material costs have gone up about 80% in the last 5 years. In my opinion, you should go with a major name in your town.  Getting a real quote is totally free. They will also let you know if there is any roof damage that might be covered by an insurance claim.

Make sure you contact your insurance company to find out what kind of discount is available for impact resistant roofs. It pays for itself in my area (DFW Metroplex) in about 5-8 years.  

And DO NOT get a metal roof. Get an impact resistant roof that looks like a regular roof.  There is a trend starting within the insurance industry that makes it difficult for new home buyers to get insurance on existing houses with metal roofs. Insurance companies are not having good claims results from metal roofs.  So they are getting tight on letting new ones on the books.  Any bumps in roof due to hail are considered "pre-existing damage."  I've seen it be a nightmare for a few clients in the last year.  Its just not worth the risk that you'll lose a sale in the final days before closing. Plus, buyers do not like metal roofs.  

The cost of your roof will depend on the size of the roof, of course. This is counted in "squares" or square feet.  And there is some geometry involved. Also, those different vents and pipes on your roof will add about $150 each to your price.  If your decking is solid, you won't need to replace it.  But if you have any sagging... plan on replacing it.  
 
Hope that helps!
