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, 30-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

It is very hard to give an exact answer to this because there

are some variables. You would have to know what kind of shingles

you need and if there is any existing damge to wood underneath,

just to name two, A ballpark figure would be around $5000.00 if

nothing but the shingles needed to be replaced.
