Bottom Line

The reroofing cost per roofing square of a standard asphalt shingle should be between "$1 and £1.90," according to TheCarpentersWorkshop.com. The cost of paying for professional labour, however, will exponentially increase the cost per square and can often account for "anywhere from 50 per cent to 75 per cent of the cost of a new roof."
