Hi folks, As stated before I am a single female homeowner living in the New England area. My home is a small Cape Cod style home. It has the original roof along with the original wood shingles. My question is: Can someone provide me with a ballpark figure of what it would cost to install new vinyl siding and to install new roof shingles...this estimate would include removing both wood and roof shingles. note: some contractors dont want to remove wood and roof shingles but just go over the existing. . . . . . other contractors will remove wood shingles but not the roof shingles. From the replies I got yesterday it seems like the logical thing to do is to remove both the wood shingles and the roofing shingles. I would appreciate your responses.
