so have two roof quotes for a 48x52 (2500 sq ft ) root and both are around the same cost


How much are the quotes for materials and labor?

Dang, in rural MS, my mom's quote was roughly $1,000 more than that (45 sq) for TAMKO. Installing a ridge vent is an additional $650.

Yeah you aren’t getting anywhere near that with a 26 gauge galvalume panel. A good architectural shingle will get better service life. And stripping and leaving existing shingles is guaranteed to be a moisture problem in the future.

Get all that in writing, and save that paper.

re: Who wants to teach me about roof shingles...
now you workin him baw but you not done yet, go back and ask roofer to throw in IR (impact resistant) Certanteed Landmark, den call your insurance agent and ask for a discount on your policy, most insurance companies offer 10-20% ANNUAL discount on your entire policy for IR shingles, do a cost benefit analysis and determine your payback in years should roofer want to up charge you for IR, less than 5 year payback is your goal IF roofer upcharges for IR upgrade, most roofers offer the upgrade for free to close the deal, take it and save some insurance money baw and gettin a much better product on your roof than Atlas or Tamko...
And WATCH your roofer during the job to insure the old roof is removed so the deck can be inspected, and ALL roof metal, drip edge and fittings are NEW and not reused to make up the profit margin for the upgrade to CT Landmark IR...
