  1. billy (Edgewood,Texas) paid $ and Said,

    30 year “Architectural” or “High Definition” shingles are around $65.00 a square. Felt underlayment is a little less than $20.00 a roll, whether it’s the 15lb roll, that covers 400 sq. feet, or the 30lb felt that covers 200 sq. feet. Other things to consider are metal edging, valley flashing, roof vents. I pay about $65.00-$70.00 a square to have a square removed and disposed of, and replaced. This is a pretty good price, I live in NE Texas. So, not including any metal, I pay about $125.00-$130.00 for removal and replacement of each square, me furnishing shingles. My roofer disposes of the old shingles, leaves the job perfectly clean. Three-tab shingles are a bit cheaper, labor is the same. I use a very good crew of roofers, and use my local lumber yard for supplies. There are more expensive shingles, but, these are the most common and most used. brand is G.A.F. or Certainteed. Tamco Brand is a little higher, and I don’t think they are any better. As for “Warranty”….you might as well not even consider that. Nothing has ever happened that I can remember right now, that has justified claiming a warranty. They will just wear out, or get damaged by hail. This is the most common problem with shingles, the hail. At least around here, and most everywhere, I guess.
