What is the average cost for roof replacement?

Replacing your home's roof is a serious financial investment and the costs of a new roof can vary greatly.  There are many factors that will be unique to your home. 

See below some of the must significant factors that may affect the cost of your new roof.

What impacts the cost of your new roof?

Where you are located, the pitch and size of your need roof and the roofing material that you choose will influence the quote that you receive from your area's roofing company.

Roof Size Affects Cost of New Roofing

Home Size

The biggest cost difference will come with the size of your roof.  To get your roofing square feet, divide the number of square feet of roof surface by 100.  Cost per square usually includes materials and installation.

Roof Materials Affects Cost of New Roofing

This is where you have a little control over costs.  Asphalt shingles are most typically cost less and are very popular.  Other roofing materials like metal, wood, slate, clay or solar will come at a higher cost.

Roof Slope and Pitch Affects Cost of New Roofing

Roof Slope and Pitch

Steeped roofs are more labor intensive. This may increase a roofing estimate.  Your roof may be more complex, which requires additional labor and may also influence the selection of materials.

Where You Live

The area you live in - its cost of living, climate, local building codes and permit requirements - are variables that also factor into the cost of your new roof. 

Roof Replacement Costs - An Understanding

You should know some of the elements that go into your average roofing estimate because a new roof is so much more than just replacing shingles.

Square Footage of Your Roof

A roofing contractor will need to get all of your roof measurements. The measurements include elements like facets, pitch, eaves, rakes and more. 

Roof's Condition

The scope of your roofing project makes it necessary for your roofers to get up on your roof to check shingle condition and other parts of your roof.

Roofing Materials

Shingles, underlayment and ventilation areas will be outlined by your roof contractor. 
The cost of these products will vary depending upon your choices.

Roofing Warranties

Eligible warranties may vary depending on the combination of products that are installed, as well as the certification of the contractor installing them. GAF Factory-Certified contractors can offer our strongest warranties for your roof replacement. It’s always a good idea to learn about all of your warranty options. If you think your roof was damaged by a storm, or may be at risk of future storm damage, see our storm resources.

Roof project labor costs

To complete the estimate, your contractor will add in labor costs, and any fees that may apply for services such as permitting and disposal.

Avoiding Hidden Roof Replacement Costs

Knowing a little bit about a roof replacement pays off.  Make sure that you understand the costs of roofing before you accept any quote or estimate.

Choose a trusted contractor

Any good roofing contractor will answer all of your questions.  They will recommend the best roofing materials for your home and budget.

Look for a cost breakdown

Your roofer should be able to provide and itemized breakdown of cost and answer any questions you may have about products and labor.

Missing warranty information

Your contractor should be able to give you a full, clear explanation of available warranties and coverage, and that information should be reflected in your cost estimate.

Ask about clean up costs

The cost to remove old roofing material and clean the work area during and after installation should be part of your estimate, not a surprise cost that pops up later. A reliable contractor will be able to provide you with a number on your estimate.

Be wary if the estimate looks too good to be true

Because if it does, it probably is. Be sure your cost estimate isn’t missing any roofing materials or expenses. A low cost is not always the best choice.
