reasonable cost for roof repair
hi all. . help, please!! a roof was recently put on my dad's house in connecticut, and i fear he was over-charged. i plan to get an official estimate, but just wanted to gauge if my gut feeling is on target.
basically, it's a 1,100 SF house with a simple cross-gable roof. there are no dormers. very straightforward. the pitch is not very steep -- just typical of what you might find on a new england cape. i know that the roofer had to remove old shingles and do some "repair" or replacement to some rafters because of roof damage. he also had to pull out (and i'm assuming replace) at least some of the wet/damaged insulation. i have no idea what type of shingles were put on, but i'm guessing they must have been pretty good quality, given that my dad was charged $30,000. i feel, given the size and simple structure of the roof, that this seems a bit steep (pardon the pun!). thoughts. . .?? thanks all!
