Here are a couple of previous similar questions - the first one directing you to where you can find several hundred previous question with answers on roofing issues, some thoughts on specific brands and on economy versus architectural or specialty shingles, and some ballpark costs.

Condition of the roof fo course affects the price, as does the slope - if your roof slope is not over about 5:12 (5 inch rise in 12" horizontsal run, or about 23 degrees slope if checking with a protractor) then normal pricing would apply, steeper or a lot of gables or such and the price can go up - to as much as about 50% more on a 45 degree (12:12 slope) roof. Ditto if roof eave is over normal second story height (about 20 odd feet).

If you have more than one layer of shingles add another $1/SF or so per additional layer for removal and disposal, and if the sheathing needs replacement too add another couple of dollars / SF for the area needing that.

But generally - if you get multiple bids a "normal" reroof with apshalt composition shingles is likely to run about $4-6/SF, more like $5-8/SF with high-wind or snow country grade ones. Metal roofing commonly 50-100% higher.

And probably ballpark $500 or so for new ridge vent, assuming a say 40 foot ridge length - up to double that for higher-end snowguard types.

If you wanted to be real conservative in your budgeting, assuming not inordinately complex or extremely steep roof and sprotecting against possible sheathing rot needing replacement (but NOT damaged rafters or roof trusses), $10/SF would probably cover about 95% ro so of reroof jobs in your area with composition shingles.

Note - the cost per square foot applies to the surface area being reroofed - the actual roof surface area, not the house square footage - so will commonly be a significantly larger number than the foundation square footage - sometimes quite signfiicantly more with steep roofs and upper floors overhanging the foundation in many cases.
