How much should I expect to pay to have a new roof put on a house located in Centreville? What are some reputable roofing companies?

Depends on the size of the roof and what materials you want used. Do you live in a SFH or a TH?

Go here and get a ballpark...

Atlas roofing has replaced half the roofs in Kings park and everyone is happy with them. The owner is Ed and he grew up here and went to Lake Braddock. You should call Ed.

Why pay? Tell your insurance company you have hail damage and get it done for free. How do you think all those in Virginia Run are getting their roof's replaced? Insurance Fraud, that's how.

For that price I'll just strap a blue tarp to the roof.

The most cheapest or most expensive doesn't mean they will do a good job, also check if they are certified to do business in Fairfax County, as well as bonded and insured incase they cause any damage other than the work they are contracted to do.

As a contractor that does roofing we typically charge $375-$450 per square (square is 100sqft). It does depend on the type of shingles, existing layers, pitch of roof and height off the ground. If the roof is more than about a 5/12 pitch, has more than one layer, or is more than 2 stories from the ground to the gutters there are additional charges.

Feel free to drop us a line if you like.

You are either a crook or the cost of roofing has gone up dramatically in the last 3 years when I left the insurance business.

$250/sq (labor & materials) was the norm back then for 3 tab asphalt shingles with 15% profit and 10% OH added. Also upcharge for steep pitch and 2 story but it would still never reach your prices, so I guess your just a crook.

With prices like yours you don't need to get many jobs do you?

I'm sorry if you feel that way. I assure you we are not "crooks" and that is very rude of you to say. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

We actually do a number of roofs each year. It is not our primary source of income but it is a service we offer. I have been using that pricing for many years without going up in price for the market. As a matter of fact, I was recently approached by a subcontractor that wanted to charge me $475 per square to handle my roofing. Talk about crazy pricing. I would have to charge $620 just to make your P and OH. Also, if you were in the insurance industry then you also know the constant back and forth between homeowners and the insurance company when they cannot get the work accomplished for the quote insurance companies provide.

I was providing my price to have transparency and allow someone to make their own decision on if they would like to call. I didn't want to waste someone's time with scheduling an estimate and then having them decide I was not within their budget. Meanwhile, they have taken time from their day or work to meet with me. I was not providing my pricing to have someone call me a crook or cause any issues.

I wish you the best of luck and health in whatever industry you have gone to now as well as in life. Thank you for your feedback.

I just had my roof done in Alexandria over the summer for around $200/sq. Not steep and one story. So if this Heinz dude is charging $375-$450 a square AND then adding for steep pitch or 2nd floor, yes, he is a crook.

There are plenty of guys in NOVA under $250 per square. I found this out while getting bids for my job. Roofing is a very competitive business.

Insurance companies always negotiate prices just like any intelligent, astute homeowner would do when dealing with contractors because most of them belong in jail.

While I appreciate everyone's input I still don't understand why fraud and crook are being thrown around. I would think if we look at the literal sense of what both of those terms mean that I do not fit either of those. I simply advertised a price. I fully expect people to look at other options. I encourage it. If I am not the cheapest that is ok. I am not taking advantage of anyone by providing information upfront on what services may cost. I guess I will not try to provide free information any longer if this is the kind of response I get. A simple "that seems high" or "I was able to find it cheaper" will do. Crooks take advantage of people. If I provide a quote and someone chooses me over someone else that is their choice.

I appreciate the opportunity to provide someone with an estimate and even more so the privilege to perform services for them if they choose us. I'm sorry for having caused some sort of problem in the thread if I did. Best of luck to everyone.

Like someone else said, this is NOT the place to advertise services. This forum is populated by nut jobs and wackos and trolls. Once you're tainted by FU, it's hard to remove. May be too late already for you. If I was you I would just deleted all your comments.

I know that this is already quite an old topic, but I have something to say about this.So I hope I can help you. I agree, this is a very interesting topic for discussion and I have a couple of tips for you. If you want to more accurately calculate the size of the roof, it will be much easier for you if you use a special roof pitch calculator. Here is a link to their website concalc.org This is a very good roof pitch calculator that will help you in this matter.

Really, every company has its own price range, and since the last time prices really changed. Frankly speaking, the best variant is to address directly to the roof company on the market to know the actual situation. Honestly, it is a costly investment requiring a responsible approach to business. So that's why I would advise you to make initially a reliable roof so that it will serve you for many years and forget about problems with this for at least 15 years. More than all, better choose a company not at the lowest price but based on work experience and customer reviews.

There are a lot of companies that can help you with fixing your roof, and the prices usually vary. You have to be careful while searching for a company to repair your roof, because, from my personal experience, you can pay 1000$ for a service that in reality costs 100$. At least that happened to me after some guys asked 3000$ for nothing, I found another company on the internet that asked 500$ for the same work. Interesting isn't it, guys from jacksoncontractingsite are doing a really good job, you can read about their company on the internet.

Fuck You Finkelstein NLHD was going to charge 4K+ 70 bucks a sheet for plywood replacement

Chris of https://www.colbertroofing.com/ did 17 square and replaced 21 sheet of plywood and new gutters and downspout for just under 10K. Jew Finkelstein wanted 17+ plywood for the same job. 2 Layers of shingles to demo also. Mama say you gotta shop around!

If you want a good roof, it will be expensive for you. This has been known for many years. And almost everyone expects the cost of a roof to be more than once they have paid for it. However, people are often unaware of the additional costs resulting from poor maintenance of their roofs. Or the various costs involved in dealing with ice dams or hail damage. Anyway, last month I installed a new one with the help of the guys from https://city2surfroofing.com.au/roof-repairs-sydney/. It's made of high-quality materials, and I am delighted with their work.
