In Central NJ, what might be a reasonable cost per foot for installing a copper roof ridge?

There is alot of varibles in estimating copper ridge work, like--does any of it (the ridge sections) come together (not on overlaps, this would be where you have like a 't' type roof system) where you need to make a sadle and uniformly fit the new ridge pieces together and solder? Does any of the ridge pieces join into valley's? Does any ridge sections butt up to chimney's or walls? How big (wide) does the ridge have to be in order to obtain the proper coverage on both sides of slate roof? Are they all long sections or broken up on small dormors? How is the access to the roof and how are you getting to the ridge. Are you wanting to use bought ridge say-ridge roll or are you fabricating your own ridge sections? Most are 10' in length. But usually (best case) $25.00ft. to (worst case) $50.00ft.

Thanks for the reply.

I was quoted $22 a foot (by a reputable slating company) which falls pretty much in line with your estimates.

It is a straight three part install.

1. Peak on entryway. 10-12 feet total.
2. Main peak of roof. Maybe 40-45 feet.
3. Peak on back entrance. 10-12 feet total.

There are no parts that come together, no valleys, or anything special. Just three straight runs.

Question...On overlaps (Where one section of ridge meets another to complete the length), are they just overlapped and nailed together with the same nails used to secure it to the roof?

Thanks again.

One more thing please, after all the trouble you went through to see if their bid was acceptable make sure, you have a TRUE PROFESSIONAL SLATE ROOFING COMPANY perform your work. Good luck and wish you the best with your slate roof. Slate roofs are truly the best roof known to man. Or anyone else for that matter.
