Not sure if this it the right area, but here it goes. I am part owner of a 2 story house in Malasiqui. It has a metal roof with wood truss. There are a few leaky spots in the roof, possibly some rot. Wife concerned about it holding up to a typhoon as well as how it will potentially leak into the house and cause more damage. Any ballpark idea on  what it would cost to get a roof repaired or replaced? About 1000 sq ft. I mean, like somewhere between $1,000 and $10,000? I have no  idea.

Almost impossible to answer your question because the condition could be anywhere from a few pin holes causing leaks, to a roof that needs to be completely replaced.   Cost of corrugated metal commonl

Not much behind us.... or to the one 'open' side....(no neighbour)  the natural boundary to any squatters, being a small creek, and a lot of trees.    Next door to us is a beautiful house...home

Looks nice and peaceful.

Almost impossible to answer your question because the condition could be anywhere from a few pin holes causing leaks, to a roof that needs to be completely replaced.   Cost of corrugated metal commonly used here for roofing runs about 500 peso per square meter.  You should be aware that you will be taken advantage of it you try to take care of this remotely.  You could very well end up paying for a brand new roof and actually be buying a coat of paint. :Mad:

I'll I can say is that a guy a know here in Subic Bay Freeport had his entire metal roof replaced 6-7 years ago for less than $3000.  It was probably a similar size and everything is more expensive here in the freeport, so given inflation, etc., maybe you are looking at about the same, for just the roof part.  That is my wild guess.

Not a good idea to have wooden trusses, if they rot or get infected you are screwed. If it's that bad it's going to cost you more than a few thousand $$$s.

Get the roof inspected by qualified tradesmen. I'm saying qualified very lightly. Cost, get at least 3 estimates. Good luck.

We installed 2 new metal roofs about 9 months ago, with steel beams. Bother were about 200sq ft. and cost around $2,000  each - materials and labour.  We bought all materials so that helped keep the costs down.  There are always variables but that will give you a ballpark figure I think.  Repairs are fine but it may simply be  a case of papering over the cracks, especially if the trusses are wooden - maybe replacing will be the better long-term option.

Metres, feet - what does it matter!  :hystery:

Joking apart, It is 200 square feet.  They're smallish roofs over the front garden and upstairs terrace.

That seems quite expensive.  My neighbor on the other half of my duplex got theirs down a few months back.  What they did was leave the old roof (probably wood truss with plywood and hot ashalt rolled roofing) and built new metal trusses over it, then the long metal roofing sheets, what ever they are called.  The owner is not around much, but I will see if I can find out what that cost.  It is probably 140 SQM.

It wasn't particularly cheap, I agree.  The accurate price for the slightly bigger one was $1,800.  That included a hardi-flex ceiling and painting as well as the actual roof.  Of course, it could have been done cheaper with an alternative roof quality.

Are you there to see what wants doing or are you being told what wants doing.

Gets a few quotes by asking around then go and price everything they are saying you want yourself , it’s surprising how a couple of tins of paint plus the odd tin sheet can solve the problem .
