I apologize, but at this time, although Angie's List collects self-reported project cost information on member reviews, we don't tabulate or average these costs.

As with most home improvement projects (no matter the type of home), it's always recommended to get several estimates. Contractors' approaches, product quality and installation site considerations can all affect the cost of a project, so getting several estimates can give you a clearer picture of the cost range you might expect to pay (as well as give you the chance to interview the prospective contractor).

When you're signed in to, check the service categories of "roofing" and/or "mobile home remodeling" usnig the Search the List search box to find local contractors who may be able to help you complete your project.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional assistance or information - including providing you with Angie's List search results on contractors in this Q&A thread.

Depends a lot on the type of exiting roofing, and condition it is in. If no prep other than washing is needed, then about $2-5/SF would be in the normal range - the lower number for a spray-on, the higher for a membrane.

By the way, I presume you do not really mean "rubber" - which has a VERY short life when exposed to sun. I am sure you mean an elastomeric roofing membrane, such as is used on commercial building flat roofs. Because of the special issues with putting a membrane on a metal surface, be sure to get a contractor experienced with this, otherwise you are likely to get an installation that does not stay adhered, and bulges and eventually tears in the wind. There are also spray-on and brush-on coatings which, if done to very high standards, can also do the job and are more wind resistant, but also less durable and more of a tendency to thermal cracking.

Any coating/covering you get will hae to either have a very good UV (ultraviolet) light protectant, or be coated with a protective coating, because any membrane surfacing will tend to get brittle and crack upon sun exposure. You also need to consider your climate, as the cheapest and most resistant coatings are black, which can really heat up a trailer in the sun.

I would recommend getting contractor names from your local mobile home or travel trailer dealer.
