It’s raining inside. How much is it going to cost me to get my roof fixed?

Roofers, like painters, quote their prices in terms of the area to be covered.

The standard measure for a roofer is a “square” — that is equivalent to 100 square feet.
When you are trying to compare on price, you can each roofer how much they charge per square, so that you are comparing apples to apples.

If you want to estimate the size of your roof yourself, check out this website to help you with your measurements.

Usually the roofer’s estimate comes in pretty close. When I had the roof on the beach house done, the estimate given was $250 a square (this is for a 30-year-shingle roof; the red Spanish tiles on my 1920s house were long gone) for $5,250. The job, which included a little bit of work on the garage, turned out to be $5,700.
