Average roofing cost

For a detached double car garage, my garage is done roofing in 2014 but seems one side need replace, the other side is perfect.
Is 2000for this little double car garage OK? Seems quite more than before, I have seen like 3000$for entire house.

Another thing why the south facing shingle get all beat up and the north part are all OK. Anything we can do to improve the south part to make it last longer.

The lighter the shade of shingles, the longer the roof will last. Black is the worst color you could get because it absorbs the suns rays very well.

Get shingle something like this.

South, sun, heat, black shingles. Enough said. A lighter colour will help, but the south side will almost always age a little less gracefully.

Shingles are priced out per sq ft, but there's a minimum cost required to make the sale, get the crew out, set the equipment up, etc. So small jobs cost far more per sqft than large ones.

This one looks like a DIY to me, personally...

Is it a shared roof with the other garage? Best to speak to your neighbour to get the whole roof done at the same time. Having seams in the middle of it is a bad idea. It was done in 2014? What kind of shingles were used? Even the crappiest type of shingles should last more than 5 years.

My house was $5k 5 years ago. I would expect to pay more for a smaller job.

The sun always bakes the South side first in Canada. That window shows a lot of UV damage as well, considering the taped on divisions have half fallen off.
