$1200 for that repair or $12000 for a new roof on a 2000 sq.ft. house. I'm gunna go out on a limb and say (despite of this economy) that roofer has plenty of backlogged work to do. I would keep searching for a good roofer that needs the work right now.

It's a very common practice for contractors to quote based on their work load. Obviously if he doesn't need the work right now the quote is going to be higher.
