I'm buying this condo. The roof is composition. There is water leaking problem through the patio. The 2 windows are wood inside and vinyl outside. Both of their wood frames are rotten because of the moisture. There is ice around the roof edge. Maybe gutter is broken. I want to ask the seller to decrease the cost. Can someone tell me how much will those cost to repair roof, gutter and windows? Let me know the cost separately so that I can do better calculation. Roof and gutter are shared. Windows are owner’s responsibility. Thanks so much!

There is no way that anyone can give you estimate to do this work.

First of all cost very drastically around the country. I was recently looking at an estimatiing book and it showed labor multiiers of that ranged from 0.70 to 1.25.

Next without anyone inspecting it localy can even make a guess about the work that needs to be done.

And then there is the need to match existing materials.

And then there is the question of access, permits, and disposal.

You need to get some one local to inspect and estimate this.
