Understanding The Facts To Determine A Price Range


There are a lot of factors that go into determining what exactly your new roof will cost, and so the actual number is quite subjective. However, we want to provide you with some solid information that will help act as a roofing cost calculator, helping you to gain a clearer picture of what kind of investment you are looking at.

Not only that, but we want to equip you with sound ideas for saving money on your new roof, and how you can approach this investment with confidence, knowing you are getting the best roof for your home for the best price. So here we go….


1. Factors Of New Roof Prices To Keep In Mind

It is not only the type of shingle you decide to go with that will affect the number you will be quoted from a roofing contractor. Things to consider are also the size of your roof and how steep it is, how many layers of old shingles (and what type) that need to be torn off, if any wood work underneath the shingles needs to be repaired, as well as the type of underlayment, decking, and ventilation to be installed. Even your choice of color can affect the price of a new roof if you choose to go with a specialty color.


2. “So, How Much Will This Cost Me?”

We understand that this information can come off as a little bit subjective, especially when you are looking for a price range. And so here is a scope of possible costs you can use as a foundation for understanding what your new roof might cost.

For a one-layer tear off, and the installation of one layer of asphalt shingles, pricing can range from $250 – $580 per “square”, or 100 square feet. The lower end of the price range reflects an uncomplicated, low-slope roof with a standard 30-year architectural laminated shingle. If your home has a steeper sloped roof, and/or you are looking at having a higher-end shingle installed, you will find yourself at the higher end of this price range.

Further, you will find yourself in a higher scope of prices if you currently have shake shingles on your roof, and are looking to replace them with asphalt shingles. This price range will find you spending between $410 – $710 per square (100 square feet).


3. “How Can I Save Money On My New Roof?”

Now that you have some numbers to work with, let’s delve into some techniques to keep in mind for saving money on your new roof.

First, always ask your roofing contractor if they are offering any coupons, discounts, or specials, or if they know of any rebates available from the product manufacturers. Asking this simple question could save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. For instance, we offer a coupon for $250 off of your new roof that you can print off right from our website!

Secondly, if you think you might have any hail damage to your roof, make sure you have your roof inspected to see if you qualify for an insurance claim. Choose a contractor who will be happy to work with your insurance, preferably a contractor trained in “Xactimate”, who will be able to provide you with an estimate on your new roof that will reflect exactly what your insurance owes you.
