Cost to put new roof on a !3 year old Central Texas house?

We have approximately 2300-3000sq ft of roof...

The next door neighbor had his roof put on two years ago for $1700 ...He has about the same size roof as ours..

We recently started getting roof estimates...The first company without insurance or bonding told us the cost would be $3800.. Then we learned it's NEVER wise to go with the contractors...

Yesterday the second company who has bonding and licensing told us they could replace our roof for $4800...

We have three more roof bids to get...We always get at least five bids on any project....We also know to make sure the company has insurance and workers comp on their employees...

Anyone know how they estimate the price of a roof and what the ball park figure to put a roof on would be???

Thanks All....

    Current rate is about 107 dollars per 100 square feet. That is for the 25 year three tab asphalt shingles.

    If you need other bids, check with your insurance company and see if they have a list of preferred installers. is an Internet based referral company that only uses insured and reputable contractors. They will send out your information and send you 3 contractors to bid on the project.

    I don't know if you still do his laundry, but tell him to wash his own clothes if they smell like that. And if your car ever smells like smoke then he does not get to use it plain and simple. He will probably still smoke but you as a parent need to make it clear it is not acceptable to you. You did not do the wrong thing, I would do the same. You cannot be afraid of your child rebelling or they will only get worse and walk all over you. If they rebel then deal with it, but do not back off on what you feel, he is 17 and is going to rebel on one issue or another, stand up for what you think is right.

    Those sound about right. We would charge 3150-4100(you give a big size range) That's without insurance or bonding.
