I'm looking at a 1925 Dutch Colonial that's a fixer upper. It has the original slate roof so it's 93 years old. Owner might do a roof certification during inspection process but I'm wondering what the cost estimate would be to remove the slate roof and put on a new asphalt shingle. Square footage of the home is 2500 but that's due to 3 floors, the roof size is probably a typical 2000 square foot or less since it's narrow.
I love the slate, but it's getting old and repairs seem exhorbitant. I'm trying to gauge whether this house is more than I can handle.
I'm in New Jersey.
