    probably about right... I'd say most people would tear off and relay the roof for $100/sq. = $1200.. then you add $500 for a little framing and your in the ball park.. of course some guys would have nailed the homeowner for $2500 for the framing because they can, but I think you were fair

    Are you a licensed contractor with liability insurance and workers comp insurance.

    Or a unlicensed "handy man" who will show up in a pickup with no insurance.

    It makes a difference, locally I get someone to take off two layer of shingles for about 35 dollars a square and about 30 to 35 to replace with new ( depending on pitch) Never had anone take off shake for me.
    But it does sound about right for a one man operation,

    If this was a larger roofing company, it would be a higher bid
