I believe that re-estimate would include the hyphen. I am old enough to remember reading library books published in the 1920s and earlier (even some schoolbooks) that used to put a hyphen between to and day, thus spelling the word "to-day". Likewise, no one was spelled "no-one", and "to-morrow", "every-man", "help-mate", and hundreds of other word pairs included hyphens. Some of those hyphens are gone and the two words are now just one word, and some have replaced the hyphen with a space, and still other word pairs aren't even common pairs anymore and seem amusingly archaic. I suppose that's just the way English evolves.
