Part of planning a roof replacement is creating a budget. Several factors can affect the cost of your project, including material, size and contractor. Getting estimates from multiple companies will give you an idea of how much it would cost to replace your roof.
Here are five factors that usually influence residential roofing costs.
Expect higher quality materials to come at higher prices than standard-grade counterparts. It always pays to invest in the best quality products within your budget. Doing so ensures your new roof lasts longer and can protect your home against weather extremes.
The design of your roof can affect the cost of your project. Workers might find it more difficult to access if it has a complex structure. The process might take longer or require them to use more safety equipment, increasing installation costs.
Permits & Regulations
Some roof repair and replacement jobs require you to obtain permits before any work starts. Ask your contractor if you need these documents, and get them as early as possible. Be sure to fulfill all requirements to avoid fines and delays later in your project.
Labor costs usually depend on the size of your roof and accessibility. Some companies might charge a little higher because they have more experience or use. Also, some roofers charge hourly, while others provide a flat rate, given upfront during the initial consultation.
Do you live in a place prone to extreme weather conditions, such as hail and heavy rain? If so, you will benefit from installing more durable materials like metal roofing. Keep in mind that the cost of installing a metal roof would be different from asphalt shingles.
