How Much Is A Roof Replacement?
Perhaps it’s due to damage or maybe it’s from age, eventually, no matter what the cause, all roofs need replacing. Roof replacement can be one of the costliest maintenance repairs a home owner will have to make so it’s easy to see why it would be tempting to put off or cut corners on. However, the roof is one of the most important elements of your house and if it’s not properly cared for, cost cutting measures my end up costing more in the long run.
Roof Replacement Costs Vary
So how much does a new roof cost? Well, that depends. No two roofs are exactly the same and the cost of replacing a roof will vary, depending on a number of factors. At Taves Roofing, we are happy to offer you a free quote, and these are the things we consider when estimating the cost of roof repairs and replacements.
Things To Consider Before You Contact A Roofing Contractor
The first thing to consider is how big the roof is. It should probably go without saying that the bigger the roof, the larger the bill will be at the end of the day. You may not need to replace the whole roof, perhaps you only need one side or section of roof repaired.
Along with the size of the roof comes the pitch or slant of it. Usually depending on the climate and architectural style of where your home is located, your house may have a very angled roof or it might be nearly flat. The grade of the slope of your roof will determine whether contractors need extra harnesses and equipment and may affect the price of the quote. Our roofing professionals will also look to see what materials they will be working with. Shingles and asphalt are less expensive than clay tiles, which are less expensive than a metal roof.
We also take into consideration the overall condition of the roof. If the roof has been properly cared for and maintained over the years, chances are that the under layer has been kept in good shape, too. However, we will also need to assess the condition underneath the shingles, looking at whether there is structural damage or rot beneath the surface layer.
