Everything You Need to Know
Are you considering a roof replacement project? If so, you’re likely wondering how much it will cost. If you want to re-roof your house we will breakdown the total cost of a roof replacement project, as well as provide some tips on how to keep costs down. Replacing your roof can be a big expense, but it is important to remember that it is an investment in your home. A new roof can add value to your property and help protect it from the elements for years to come.
The first thing you need to know about when estimating the cost of a roof replacement project is what kind of material will be used. Asphalt shingles are often times cheaper than other materials such as slate or clay tile, but they do not last as long and can require more maintenance over time. The average cost for asphalt shingle installation ranges between $500-800 per square foot (100 square feet) with labor costs adding another $200-$400 per hour depending on location and difficulty level; expect higher prices if there’s any steepness involved too!
The second thing that needs consideration is how much it’ll take out of your pocket in the first place – this would include materials along with all associated costs like labour charges etcetera so don’t forget this when calculating!
The third thing we’ll look at is what type of roof material you’re looking for. Asphalt shingles are generally less expensive than metal roofs or clay tiles, but they require more maintenance over time due to their tendency towards cracking and breaking if not properly maintained on an annual basis with proper repair as needed (i.e., caulking). Clay tile installations tend to cost more upfront because these types of roofs often have higher labor costs; however in some cases installing a metal roof instead might actually save money long term since there won’t be any need for future repairs down the road such as those associated with asphalt tile replacement projects which can run between $150-$300 per square foot depending on location and difficulty level!
