You can find a bundle (pun intended - sorry, I could not resist) of responses to that question, answers about roofing issues, and some thoughts on specific brands of shingles in the Home > Roofing link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

In the cheapest parts of the country (labor cost-wise) and with economy shingles you can get down into the $3-4/SF range, with "normal" labor costs and materials typically more in the $4-5/SF range, and in high-cost areas or with unusually high or steep roof (over about 5:12 or 6:12 slope) or with special hurricane or hail-resistant or arctic or top-end shingles can get into the $6-8/SF range - rarely over that for competitive range bids (though I have seen wild bids over $20/SF where the contractor thought he had a sucker on the line) except on very steep "ski lodge" type roofs like 12:12 slopes - and even then generally would not go over about $8/SF unless combining the steep roof with great complexity (like lots of dormers) or specialty shingles and such.
