This eliminates the contractors who are poor at their jobs and responsible for probably 75% of the horror stories you hear about.</em></u> <br/><br/>The age of the roof isn't relevant really to your question , it is the number of LAYERS you currently have on the roof. If you find that you have 2 layers then you have to have it stripped ( in buffalo NY where i live is code). Stripping a roof basically is much more expensive than adding a layer because you may or may not have to replace plywood, but you will have to buy granular Ice&amp;Water shield that's around 70-80$ a roll and have whoever does the roof take it from gutter at least # rows up. A major problem guys have is they only lay down the first row off gutter toward ridge board with the expensive rubber , but they don't seem to understand that they (on 90% of homes) are only covering the area that is above the soffits with the rubber and it is then pointless. Myself i have always just spent the extra few hundred bucks (500+) on rubber and take it up and over the ridge board ensuring no future leaks will take place. Since 1999 i have done a good number of roofs for our preferred customers and still after 15 years have only had one single ridge cap get blown off in a storm a few years back, never have had a leak before.&nbsp; Good luck if you have anymore questions feel free to email me. <br/>Regards,<br/><em><strong>Complete Home Improvements of Hamburg N.Y</strong></em> Sat, 08 Nov 2014 05:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-to-replace-new-roof-and-shingles-on-1600-sq-ft/379211/ 2014-11-08T05:18:00Z [Removed by Zillow moderator. ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-to-replace-new-roof-and-shingles-on-1600-sq-ft/379211/ [Removed by Zillow moderator.

On low pitch roofs torch downs can work well, but their lifespan is shorter overall. You can look into metal which is durable and comes in a variety of colors. If your pitch is not too low, you may also be able to do a dimensional composition roof.<br/><br/>Call a handful of licensed roofers in your area and start getting bids. Choose a company with a good rep and one that stands behind their work.

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 14:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-to-replace-new-roof-and-shingles-on-1600-sq-ft/379211/ 2014-08-27T14:09:00Z If you have leaking through ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-to-replace-new-roof-and-shingles-on-1600-sq-ft/379211/ If you have leaking through your roof, torn shingles, tabs broke lose, or hail damage. Contact your homeowners insurance and file a claim with them. They will set up an appointment for an adjuster to come out and evaluate your damage. If the adjuster finds enough damage they will pay for fair market value for the cost to repair your roof. They will subtract your policy deductable, usually between $500-$1500 some less and some more. But $500-$1000 out of pocket for a full roof replacement sure beats $4,000-1$10,000. Usually you can get a 3-demential upgrade also through the contractor.

This accounts for a 5.5" installation of leak barrier (ice &amp; water) with a 6" overlap, a hurricane nailing pattern being used (6 nails per 1 meter length of shingle) to get you into a 130 mph range wind rating, #30 lb felt or better underlayment, all dumpster and dump fees (as shingles are considered hazardous waste), the building permit may or may not be included - but ALWAYS have the contractor pull it for you on your behalf. &nbsp;Also know that height, higher pitch (over 10/12), better than #30 lb felt, a "designer" shingle, poor access, higher number of roof planes, and any chimney work are all going to increase your investment. &nbsp;Figure for a $300-$600 add-on for a chimney re-lead which should be done an any installation that the lead is over 5-10 years old. &nbsp;Re-pointing or rebuilding your chimney are easily going to increase your cost by a fair amount depending on severity. &nbsp;Last, always ask the most common questions 1) Are you Licensed? (they (roofers) purchase this w/o any testing or verification of any kind) and 2) Insured? - But then you NEED to find out HOW much are the terms of their Insurance policy, as your Homeowners Insurance does not cover a professional for hire. 3) Are they factory trained? &nbsp;If not, YOU WILL HAVE NO WARRANTY as the manufacturer doesn't just warranty a roof because "chuck in a truck" installs your roofing system, etc. &nbsp;Use your common sense.&nbsp; Fri, 02 May 2014 06:17:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Cost-to-replace-new-roof-and-shingles-on-1600-sq-ft/379211/ 2014-05-02T06:17:00Z 1600 sq.ft house!!!
