“Dear PoP,

I’m new to the DC area recently bought a small duplex/rowhouse in Brightwood/Manor Park with 3 small bedrooms. The house has a flat, sloped roof called “modified bitumen”. We recently noticed a water spot on the upstairs ceiling and have asked a contractor to take a look at either repair or replacement. The roof size is about 30 by 15 ft. My question is: What does it typically cost to replace this type of roof? I really have no idea what to expect in terms of estimates for these types of roofs. Any reader help would be greatly appreciated!”

Can anyone provide any guidance here. I know when I had my roof replaced it cost like $8,000 or so.
