    Q: I currently have a pitched roof with rolled roofing (staightline 40 feet long). A contractor told me I would need a new roof soon and said I should have the old roof torn off and put a shingled roof on as a replacement (there are two layers on there already so a tear off is a must). Does this sound like good advice and what is an average price for a job of this size (I was told $8500-$9000 by the contractor)?
