Question DetailsAsked on 2/24/2017

What is the general cost of replacing 23 squares of asphalt shingles in Savannah, GA?

I know that homeowners are being taken advantage of due to hurricane Matthew in my area. What should I expect as the average cost of the above referenced job. My roof was damaged by a tree and approximately 23-25 squares need replacing. Should I expect this repair to cost upwards of $5000?

Assuming your insurance covered hurricane caused damage like this, your insurance deductible - with the insurance company covering the rest. Most roofing contractors will accept what the insurance company adjusts (figures) the damage at - plus your deductible amount. Though I will ahve to say - if just getting bids now you may have problems with the insurance company because of the late claim.


Must have been one heck of a tree - because 23 squares is 2300 square feet of roof - most or all of a normal size roof. And if that much area was damaged - likely to have sheathing and maybe framing damage as well, which of course ups the price depending on how much needs replacement. As well as the tree removal cost too of course.


You can find a lot of previous questions about reroofing prices in the Home > Roofing category under browse Projects, at lower left. Generally speaking, since you are in a pretty cheap area, likely around $2.50-4.00/SF for the asphalt shingle (with water barrier and flashings) reroofing itself - without sheathing or framing or gutter repairs.
