This is my first post! I'm looking forward to fixing up my house some. I've embarrassingly neglected it for some time. I'm blaming money, and divorce as the driving factors, but I digress..... Anyway. I think the first item that needs to be addressed is the roof. I bought this house in '97 and the shingles were who knows how old at that point. They are still on it. I don't know how much a job for this house would cost if someone was to do it for me, but I assume it's significant. If I can save on the labor cost, I would like to do so, hence this thread. I have relatively little home repair experience. I don't consider myself over confident in my abilities, but I do think most things I attempt end up being easier than I had imagined. It's the know-how that I lack. Hoping to fix that on this website. I guess I'll just lay out my materials list and go from there. I just picked a google search result for materials calculation. Please critique! Shingles needed: My roof is 55' long, and each side is 15.5'. So I took 55x31 and came up with 1705' square. Divided that by 100 and got 17.05 squares. At 3 bundles per square, I came up with 51.15 bundles. Adding 10% for loss and 2 extra bundles for a ridge cap, I came up with 58 bundles. Drip edge: Simple as measuring length? Need a drip edge for the sides of the house as well? Nails: The site I used mentioned 3 nails per shingle. That would put me at 5456 nails needed for job. 320/square X 17.05 squares- 5456. No idea how many I'd need for underlayment. Underlayment: 1 roll of #15 underlayment covers 4 squares. So I'd need 5 rolls. Flashing: I have 1 chimney that is 16"x16". Vent boots: I have 3 2" vents, and 1 3.5" vents. So, the very rough estimate so far(and missing some info) and using Lowes for pricing is: Shingles: $1111.28 Drip edge: $54.45 Nails: Hitachi 7200-Count 1.5-in Roofing Pneumatic Nails $46.98* Underlayment: $84.50 Flashing:TITE-SEAL Self-Adhesive (unsure, just picked one) $19.28 Boots:Oatey No-Calk 3-in x 14.5-in Galvanized Steel Vent ~$30 Roof sealant: $10.14 I expect to have to replace some decking, but have no idea how much. I didn't calculate nails needed for tar paper because I don't know how many, or what kind to get. I'm at $1357 for materials for what I've listed so far. I may decide on delivery which will increase cost and if Lowes(or w/e place I buy from) offers rooftop delivery, will likely pay for that as well. Also did not estimate nail gun and/or hammer. Just trying to get a rough estimate here to determine if it's worth doing myself or hiring a crew. Thousands of dollars saved is worth it. 1K or less probably isn't. I have NO idea how much roofers charge for labor. *I calculated nails for using a nail gun. I have a sufficient air compressor, and enough hose to reach. I do not have a nail gun so I would have to buy one(new or used). I figure it's worth it as I'm not used to swinging a hammer. I'm sure I've missed a bit. Hoping to get some guidance. I don't have much time left this year as it's starting to cool. I read 40-80 degrees is a good temp to install. Thanks in advance.
