How Much Does a New Roof Cost?

When it’s time for a new roof, the first question you’ll likely ask is “how much does a new roof cost?” Quite honestly … it depends. Many roofers will give you a ball-park estimate based solely on the size of your roof, but there are a lot of other factors that will impact the cost of your roof installation. The type of materials required, the shape of your roof, the pitch/slope, etc. all contribute to pricing. Before you get your heart and your head fixed on a number, let’s take a look at some of the things that might make an impact on that total price tag.

Roof Size Matters

The size of your roof is one of the main factors. Simply put: the bigger the roof, the bigger the cost. We’re just talking about the surface area here, which is why a 2,000 square foot single-story home could be much more expensive than a similar roof on a multi-story home of the same square footage.

Materials Choices Matter

The type of materials you choose will also play a role in cost. Asphalt shingles are perhaps one of the most common and affordable options and are available in quite a variety of colors and styles. Other types of material such as metal, wood, slate, tile or premium shingles have the benefit of a more unique look, and are considerably more expensive for both the material and the installation. A&A Services Home Improvement provides top-rated products from Owens Corning, a very well-respected brand, and are part of their “Preferred” network of contractors (they only provide this distinction to companies who meet strict standards for professionalism, reliability, and craftsmanship.)

Amount of Labor Necessary Matters

Removing the existing roof isn’t always necessary, but if you’re changing shingle types, have multiple layers or lots of damage to the existing layer, then you’ll likely need to have the whole thing removed in order to install your new one properly and keep your new warranty intact. If removing your old roof is required, you may find you have additional damages to the existing roofing system components like the ventilation, underlayment and decking, which means more money for repairs or replacements. The silver lining here: Although these additional features will add cost to your overall installation, they will generally cost less than if you have them done separately.

Your Roof’s Structure Matters

The last main factor to consider in costing out a new roof is the pitch, slope, peaks, and valleys. If it’s more dangerous to walk on or has lots of areas that require two planes to join (like peaks, skylights, chimneys, etc.), there will be more time, labor, and equipment needed to do the job safely and properly. These added features often make your home’s exterior more beautiful and unique, but they also drive up costs when it comes to roof repairs and replacements.

A&A Services Home Improvement knows that your roof is a significant investment. Our installers are masters at their professions so you can be sure that your roof will be installed correctly and backed up with our guarantee. After we are done, you join the A&A family and will receive lifelong service.
