Roof replacement costs between $4,900 to $14,100 – this range depends on several factors.

What are roof replacement cost factors?

Roofing contractors look at several variables to determine the price of a new roof, including its size, pitch, accessibility and cost of materials. Because of this, prices for a new roof can range drastically.

  1. Roof size. Most roofers charge by “roofing square”. This is a 10ft x 10ft square area. For example, a 4,000 square foot roof would be equal to 40 “roofing squares”.
  2. The location also plays a role in cost difference.
  3. The pitch and slope of your roof also contribute to the cost of replacement. A complex roof may need additional materials or expertise.
  4. Roof material is a big contributor to the cost. Roof materials, like anything else, you get what you pay for. Roofing manufacturers offer different warranties based on your selection of material and the quality of the installation. That’s why many roofing material manufacturers have authorized or certified installers doing the installation to guarantee the quality and proper installation of their products. Comparing various companies and making decisions based not only on cost but also longevity is a wise decision when shopping for something as critical as your roof.
    1. There are four main types of roofing material:
      1. Asphalt $120 – $400 per 100 sq foot
      2. Slate $800 – $4000 per 100 sq foot
      3. Tile $600 – $4000 per 100 sq foot
      4. Metal $500 – $1800 per 100 sq foot
  5. Other factors that contribute to cost:
    1. Water damage – until a roof is removed, underlying damage to your home can add to the cost of repair. Those damaged have to be addressed in order to properly install a new roof.
    2. Repair of flashing – around chimneys and other structures on the roof will add to the overall repair.
    3. Removal of the existing roof – it is not wise or cost-effective to put another roof over an existing roof. This will affect the lifespan of your new roof, could void your new roof warranty and could create additional issues.
  6. Types of Shingles:
    1. Basic 3-Tab Shingles
    2. Dimensional Shingles
    3. Premium Shingles
  7. Installers: Are they licensed and insured?
