How much does it cost to replace a roof on a ranch style house?
There is a wide array of costs concerning roof replacement, regardless of the area. The material used, size in square footage, labor costs, and so on. Sometimes a second layer… of shingles can be added, but use caution since you may just be covering up an underlying issue with the roof structure or mold and algae. In many cases, when the shingles are replaced, new plywood, tar-paper and flashings may also need replacement. If the roof is being completely redone, you may be able to add insulation in the roofing materials at that time. Due to these factors, obtain estimates from professional, licensed roofers who physically inspect the property. You can save a lot of money by doing it yourself which is not all that hard! To measure the roof.(if you can't get on the roof, measure from the ground like most roofers do.) measure length of building, then count how many shingles there are going up the roof. The exposed tab is approx. 6", now multiply by amt. of shingles and divide by 12 to give you the footage up the roof. Multiply length by height, every 100 sq. ft. equals a square. Ex. 30x15=450sq.ft. or 4 1/2 squares. measure back and front,and add 15 % for waste. Next, you will need to decide is what roof materials you will use. If you don't know, you should learn about the different roofing materials available and make sure that they are code where you live. Regardless of how many layers you have you should rip-off the old shingles and replace the underlayment materials with the new ones as needed. Go to a roofing supply and price out the shingle you want and the ice and water shield (prevents water leaks). You also should install a ridge vent. The price will vary depending on size, material, location, warranty, etc. I just did my roof and it cost $5500. I had estimates from $5500 to over $10,000. When you call a roofer, ask if he does subcontractor work. You should pay approximately $125 to $150 per square with you buying the material. There are websites to find contractors. You put in your project and several contractors will contact you. You then get to see their ratings. This may lead to calls from those companies, since the sites provide them with leads. Usually, 3 to 4 bids will do; additional ones are likely to be within 5% of each other and you won't have wasted a lot of people's time. Angie's List is also a good place to check for recommendations. Finally, feel free to negotiate. Tell them you cannot afford their price, and can they cut $XXXX.xx. Or ask for their best price. Make sure the cost includes protecting your landscaping around the home and any cleaning up of materials.
That depends That depends on a lot of stuff. How big is the roof? What quality shingle -- assuming it's shingles -- are you going to replace it with, 20-year, 3…0-year, or even better? Are you going to lay the new shingles right over the old or are going to rip up the old? If you tear up the old, what is the condition of the roof under the existing shingles? Does a lot of wood need to be replaced or repaired? Are you doing the work yourself or are you hiring a contractor?

You can get bids from roofers; this would be a good step. Roofing materials vary; the most common is asphalt shingles. Go for the 25 year rated instead of the 20 year.… Guarantees don't mean much but the higher guarantee indicates a heavier-duty product. Guess: $50-100 per square (100 square feet; covers 10'x10' area). This will depend a LOT on how complicated the roof is. If you need sheathing (like plywood) replaced, guess $75 for each 4x8 sheet, installed. This does not have to be done unless rotted or something. If needed, though, don't skimp here. Roofs take maintenance and you don't want to fall through the roof in the future. Tearoff: If an existing asphalt shingle roof has 3 layers of shingles, you need to tearoff the old shingles before putting new on. This bid should include taking away all materials to the dump. Guess: $40 per 100 square feet. If you need new sheathing, then you will have to have a tearoff regardless. Quality counts with roofing! Its expensive, but critical to get a good quality job.
The cost to build a 1000 sq ft ranch style house is dependent upon exactly where the it is to be built. The size of the lot, materials used and quality level are also all …factors in the cost.

The answer will depend on what you mean by 'green'. If you mean green, as in the color, then the cost will vary according to the quality and type of materials you wish to use,… and the square footage of the roof itself. If you mean green as in environmentally friendly, then the costs there will also vary. You should budget a bare minimum of $5,000.00 for the roofing material alone, labor and other expenses will add to this. A better budget would be $10,000 to $12,000, but you should still have some money in reserve for extra costs.
