Moreover, you could consider repainting a chimney, resealing the skylights, or repairing the gutters, which are all operations that require qualified workmanship, like that of
There are several costs involved in the replacement of a roof, such as:

• Preparation for the replacement – This includes removing the existing shingles, which by the way is not the easiest thing to do, plus you have the cost of removal, assessing the condition of the plywood, flashing and seals, disposal of debris.
• Materials – For example, a roof covering between 1300 and 1500 square feet would require about 40 sheets of plywood, which would cost around $800, 13 to 15 squares of shingles totaling about $1500, galvanized roofing nails worth $65, and roofing cement costing about $22 per gallon.
• Labor. Roofing contractors usually charge about $3 per square foot, which means $3900 to $4500 in this case. The whole project could need 2 or 3 full working days to be completed.

Of course, there are slight differences for these prices, depending on the area and the particular roofing firm you are working with, but this is a rough estimation of what the replacement of your Chicago roofing could cost.
