how Hometown Roofing Contractors works
Hometown Roofing Contractors is the #1 way for locals to find qualified roofing contractors in their area. Find out how easy it is to find the right roofer for your project.
roofing estimates
Roofing estimates for total roof repair can run anywhere from $100 per square all the way up to $1000 per square, depending on the size and pitch of the roof, materials selected, and the local costs to tear off and dispose of the old roof.  Free roofing estimates are offered by most roofers, so it's typically best to request estimates and compare.  When comparing roofing estimates from different contractors, it's important to make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Roofing estimates are calculated "per square." A square is equal to a 10 ft X 10 ft area or 100 sq. feet of roof. So, if you have a 3000 square foot roof, then you're roof would be "30 square."
