New roof versus cover up old
I bought my house in 2008. It was built in 1984 with a 2 floor in-law addition in 1993. Early this year we had ice dams causing leakage into the 2nd floor of the in-law addition area. In spring I had my roof contractor come out to give me an estimate. He quoted $6900.00 for reshingling over 1 layer of roofing and the other estimate was for $9300.00 for removal and disposal . The toal removal included removing an old ghost stack and repairing plywood decking. Also ice and water barrier along eave edges and installing new flanges on all vent pipes. I have used this contractor with my other house and he did a good job. Are these good estimates? I think I will go with him but was wondering if I should get other estimates. My house is approx. 2200 sq. ft. Thanks for any advise you can give.
