If your roof only leaks during winter months, I doubt anything wrong with it.

After a full inspection of the attic insulation, assessed significance of the intake Soffit as well as the exhaust roof ventilation, we have determined that roof shingles are in good working order.

Having heat loss due to poor Insulation dept in the attic in most cases why the roof seems to leak. Before spending thousands on a new roof, have a professional evaluation to identify permanent solutions.

Also having poor ventilation in the attic is another no brainer. Stop spending thousands and address the source of all the problems. Bandaid can only last for a short period of time.

Flat roofs may or may not have ventilation. Commercial applications have no attic space and insulation is right under the roofing membrane. As long as 2.5 inch insulation with vapor barrier is valid, type of membrane can be modified Bitumen, epdm or tar/gravel. Residential flat roofs do have a small crawl space for the Insulation.

Poor Workmanship

It is a hard question to answer when there is no measurements in hand or blueprints to look at. It will depend on the house if it’s a single home, detached or a condo unit. Also the most important part of all is the pitch of the roof.

Proper way of determining an exact cost for a roof is to getting a free estimate from a local roofing company. If they actually get up on the roof and measure the sqf, how many vents, valleys are needed to determine the exact cost. Never believe a guesstimator who gives you a quote just by looking at it and telling you that he’s done it all. To replace a roof on a basic single family home can be anywhere from 4500 to 6000$ depending on the pitch and details. Detached homes are normally between 3000 to 4500$ since they have less sqf.
These are just the simple numbers according to whats available in the market as affordable housing. If we are talking about a custom home that has been designed to give roofers a challenge may cost you up to 10000$

Now days to replace a square of roof can start from 220$ and up depending on how much ice and water shield, how many vents, valleys or the slope. There isn’t a set price for re-roofing and it varies from company to company. There are also flyby roofing companies that offer tail-light warranty for 150 a square who you want to stay away from.
