When you need to completely replace your roof, your head may be spinning. Talking to roofers, getting price quotes, and balancing your normal day-to-day may want you to throw your hands up in the air and settle for anything that covers your head! Wait: don’t make any rash decisions before talking to the experts at Peak Roofing & Construction. We take every detail into consideration when calculating roof replacement. Here are just a few things you should think about when deciding how much to pay when replacing your roof.
By far the biggest factor that will decide how much your roof will cost is the roofing material you choose. The least expensive, asphalt shingles, range from about $100-$200 per square foot, depending on the brand and quality. More expensive roofing materials, like tile and slate, you can expect to pay several hundred dollars more per square foot for a new roof. A knowledgeable roofing contractor can assist you in providing a price estimate based on the material you choose.
Labor costs to remove your old roof and place your new roof on top may also vary depending on where you live. It is important that you realize that cheaper labor is not always the way to go. Roofing contractors who invest a lot in training and education may charge a bit more, but they produce a much higher quality product. When it comes to roofing, you don’t want someone to cut corners. A roofing company will be able to provide a labor and time estimate adequately so you can plan when to replace your roof.
