Here’s What Drives Your Roof Replacement Cost.
Getting to the heart of your roof replacement cost helps you understand the process and investment you’re making in your home or business. Most people only replace a roof every 15-25 years which means they don’t have a ton of experience to help guide their decisions. Here’s our easy-to-digest guide to the three main factors that affect your roof replacement cost:
- Size: The overall size of your roof is going to drive the price up or down. Large roofs with many pitches will cost more than smaller roofs that are mostly one level.
- Material: The roofing material you choose can drive the price up or down. Traditional asphalt shingles tend to be less expensive while a standing seam metal roof is often the most expensive. Keep in mind that a standing seam metal roof can last up to 100 years while a shingle roof typically lasts half that long. If you’re planning on staying in your home and passing it down to your kids, consider longevity when making your decision.
- Contractor: Not all contractors charge the same for installing a roof. Keep in mind that a significant percentage of the cost to install your roof is insurance that keeps you and your contractor safe. Consider the importance of your investment and evaluate each proposal based on the expertise of the contractor – not just the price.
Don’t Wait To Schedule Your Project.
People often put off replacing their roof until they’re starting to experience significant problems. Keep in mind that qualified roofers are often busy and book out installations as far as three months. If you start seeing problems and warning signs, contact your contractor to begin the process so you can have a new roof when you need it.
