Roofing: cost to replace roof OSB per sheet?

2 Replies

How much does it cost you your area to replace each sheet of OSB plywood by a roofing contractor in your area? I have a roofing company with solid 5 star reviews on every web site that everyone claims to be the best price and value in town who is asking for $55 a sheet replaced. OSB is $12.50 at Lowes, and I was a roofer 20+ years ago as a kid and know it takes a nail gun and about 60 seconds to install a sheet of OSB because I've done it. Am I being overcharged?

I run a roofing company and we have $2.35 sq.ft. in our contracts.  We often greatly discount that price for larger areas or if we know in advance plywood will be needed.  Sheets of 7/16" OSB around here have been around $17, and then you have removal, disposal, installation and quite possibly a trip to the store.  It's possible for us to loose money on replacing a sheet.
