Roof costs can vary greatly depending on the pitch of the roof, type of materials used, cost of materials, and more. Typically, you would call a few roof companies for quotes and the costs may vary from contractor to contractor for the exact same roof repair.
We at House Buyers Direct rely on a few different contractors and in most cases we are able to get a competitive price based on the fact that we give our contractors repeat business as a professional real estate developer and renovator. On average we are spending anywhere from $3,500-$8,500 a roof (size of house and pitch of roof vary).
As a homeowner who is a one time customer may, in most cases, be charged 125%-200% more than we would pay. But, this is not always the case and if you shop around enough you will be able to get a price you can afford. However, be aware that there are companies out there that will offer you in-house financing. In our opinion, you will not get the best deal with this option. They often have short terms, high interest rates, and also charge you full retail price for your roof job.
In summary, a new roof will cost thousands of dollars and the costs will depend on the type of materials used, size, and pitch of your roof, number of roofs you will buy from the contractor in a year, and more. Please feel free to contact us for a referral to one of our contractors if you would like to repair it yourself. Otherwise, give us a call and we will make you an offer to buy your property in the condition it is right now. Our roof costs will likely be much lower than if your cost and the savings we get may allow us to buy your house for a reasonable price that we both can live with.
