01 Mar How Much Does a New Roof Cost?
One of the most popular questions that homeowners have is how much does it cost to replace a roof or install a new roof. There are many factors that come into play when trying to figure out this number. The roof material to be replaced, the type of roof to be installed and the size and style of the roof are just a few of the factors that go into determining how much it will cost to replace a roof. The more factors that go into the calculation the higher the final cost of the project becomes. This cost is typically determined by the type of material used in the construction of the roof, whether or not there are unseen problems such as loose shingles or other types of repairs required that add to the total cost of the project.
For example, when determining how much does a new roof cost, the total price is usually broken down into three categories: the square footage of the roof replacement, the total cost of all materials included in the project, and the labor costs associated with the project. Each category has its own individual and unique price range because it relates to the particular circumstances of the home’s location and construction. In general, the larger the square footage of the roof replacement, the higher the price per square foot. Likewise, the greater the amount of material that is required in the project, the higher the price per square foot. Finally, the larger the area of the replacement to be installed, the more money it will cost per square foot.
While figuring out how much does a new roof cost it is important to take into account all roofing materials and services that will be required for the installation of the roof. For example, if a home has existing insulation then the installation of new insulation may increase the total roof replacement cost. On the flip side, if the home is not insulated then venting and other roof repair services will be required that can add to the roofing total. Therefore, it is important to keep all roofing services cost estimates in mind when figuring out how much does a new roof cost.
A common roofing estimate provided to homeowners will help them figure out how much it will cost. Another commonly given estimate is that of a complete replacement of the roof. Although a complete roof replacement may seem like the best option, it is important to note that in many cases it is not. For instance, asphalt shingle roofs have a much shorter life span than shingle roofing does. This shorter life span can result in an unexpectedly high roof bill.
