Our Roof Replacement Calculator Will Calculate Your EstimateBlogs
What Factors Add Up to The Roof Replacement Cost?
The materials you choose will define the durability and lifespan of your roof. The higher the quality of the materials the longer they will serve you. But it also affects the price of your roof replacement (use our roof cost calculator). Asphalt shingles may be the least expensive material than slate shingles but may be less durable.
Roof Size, Shape, and Pitch
The size of your roof is one of the major contributing factors. Manufacturers usually sell roofing materials by "squares". 100 square feet equals 1 square. Slope and pitch also contribute to the cost of your project. For example, roofers need to use special equipment to perform repairs on a steep roof which will result in a higher cost of repairs (use our roof cost calculator). And so do they for unique roof shapes.
The Materials and Equipment Used
Some damage might be discovered only when the layer of shingles is removed. Depending on the condition of your roof decking, some sections of wood might need to be replaced. This will require roofing contractors to use additional materials such as felt paper, or synthetic paper, ice & water shield, nails, drip-edge, ridge-vent, and caps to replace the plywood of your attic.
How to Use Our Roofing Calculator?
Our customers can use our new roof cost calculator to get an estimated cost for their roof replacement project. Here are some simple steps to get your estimate.
1. Residential or Commercial?
The type of property matters because the materials used for both types vary a lot. Architectural and asphalt shingles are the most popular options for the residential roofing project. Commercial property usually has a flat roof and might need other options - single-ply membranes (TPO, EPDM), metal roofing, etc.
2. Type in the area of your roof
If you are not sure how to do that on your own, you might want to get a consultation with a roofing contractor to measure your house and calculate the area for you.
3. Choose the material
The options we offer to our customers are architectural shingles, tile roofing, metal roofing, and single-ply membranes.
