Page Roofing and Contracting Services was recently hired as the roofing contractor to perform a new roof installation for a residential roofing customer in Martinez, GA.
The existing roof on the two-story home was aging. There were a couple of leaks in the house and some of the shingles were missing. The homeowner knew it was time to have the roof replaced but was apprehensive about cost. He did a google search for affordable roofing companies nearby, found us and gave us a call for an estimate.
We arrived the next morning to look at his roof and discussed his concerns. He wondered how much it would cost to have his roof installed in Martinez. He was surprised at our quote because it was quite a bit more competitive than what another contractor bid on a neighboring house. We told him that several factors play into how much it will cost to replace a roof, including size of the roof, pitch, roofing materials and type of job performed (roof replacement, reroofing, etc.). We also explained that labor for a new roof should make up about 60 to 65 percent of the total cost with the remaining amount covering materials, disposal and any additional fees.
We broke down the roofing bid by each category for him and he was impressed and asked us to go ahead and do the job. He was surprised because he expected to have to pay much more.
The new roof installation took a day to complete and the new asphalt shingle roof looks great.
