Shingle roof in Plano TX

In 2020 the average cost of the shingle roof in Plano TX ranges between $6,262.00 and $7,963.00. This estimate really depends on a lot of factors such as the size, pitch, materials and other supplies needed, the job the contractor needs to perform (e.g. Do they need to replace the underlayment of the shingles? Do they need to remove the layers of old shingle), and the structure of your roof (does your roof have skylights, chimneys, plumbing pipes or other features?)

A lot of contractors have a calculator on their websites to help you get the estimate of your project. And so do we! In this article, we are going to give you more information on how the estimate is calculated and how to use our roof replacement calculator.

Step 1. Choose between residential and commercial roofing.

One of the main differences between the two types is the materials available. Architectural and asphalt shingles are preferred for residential roofing. Commercial roofing installations usually go for flat roofing and there are other materials preferred: single-ply (TPO, EPDM), metal roofing, and many others.

Step 2. Calculate the area of your roof.

Just measure your house’s base area and the pitch, then multiply the area by a corresponding correction factor (you can use the materials given to help you calculate it). For your convenience, we use square feet.

Step 3. Choose the material

Architectural Shingle (1 square foot costs $2.69)

Architectural shingles are thicker than asphalt shingle types and can create the appearance of natural roofing like slate, cedar, or clay tiles. Their extra thickness and contouring make them cost more than traditional asphalt shingles, but last longer and have longer warranties. Other great characteristics are fire, wind, algae, and mold growth resistance.
