Welcome to the forums!!

What is the square footage of the house?
= ¿Cuál es el área en pies (cuadrados) de la casa?

Is there a fire hydrant within a 1000 feet?
= ¿Hay una boca de incendio a 1000 (mil) pies de la casa?

Welcome to the forums!

Another option for "within 1000 feet of the house" could be "dentro de mil pies de la casa".

Question Presupuesto o Cotización - Roof replaced

Wich would be better Persupuesto de las casas. Or Cotización de lasa casas?

How would I say In what year was the roof replaced? I keep confusing my self.

The word presupuesto would be more popular, I would think, for estimates of repair to a home. I would use cotización to ask about the value of a home.

¿En qué año se repuso el techo?

Ladytime, I bid you welcome, although I did't understand anything of that you said in your post.
