OK, So How Much is My New Roof Going to Cost Me?

Being open and honest when it comes to pricing is critical, no matter what line of work you are in. This is especially true in the roofing business. Roofing projects can be a major investment, and property owners deserve to know what the entire job will cost before they fully commit to a bid from a roofing company.

Discussing the final cost of the project is often discouraged in the roofing industry, but that shouldn’t be the case. Investing in roofing repairs or a new roof involves making big financial decisions. As a customer, you need to know how large of a financial commitment you’ll be making. If you want to know the final cost of a roofing project, it shows a lack of honesty and openness if the roofing company will not provide a price. Knowing how much you’ll need to pay upfront and out of pocket will give you a better idea of what you can afford. This gives you the chance to reach out to lenders or banks if you are in need of financial assistance.

Overall, open and honest pricing is a win for everyone!

  • Reduced Anxiety: Roofing projects are major investments, and knowing the cost upfront reduces anxiety and uncertainty associated with the project.

  • Clear Expectations: Transparent pricing sets clear expectations for both parties involved, minimizing the likelihood of disputes later on.

What Influences Cost

Every roof is unique and there is no cookie cooker solution to them. Below are the top 7 factors that impact the cost of your new roof.

  • What style of roof structure do you have? The more transitions and elevations the roof has the more material the roof job will require.
  • How high Is your roof? A higher roof will result in increased risk and liability along with more labor hours going up and down ladders.
  • How steep is your roof? The steeper your roof the slower the roof installers will be at doing their job since the difficulty of maneuvering roof materials will be high and resulting in higher labor cost.
  • Ease of access. The harder it is the get around your house the more time it will take to get it done.
  • Existing roof layers and decking. The more layers of shingles your currently has the more labor and dumpsters will be needed to remove them. If the decking is not adequate for a new roof install it might need to be partially or fully replaced.
  • Type of material. On the more economical side is asphalt shingles while clay or slate tile roofing will be on the higher end side.
