Cost Factors of Roof Replacement

Much like any other costly home modifications, a roof replacement is an investment that comes with upfront and backend costs. In addition to the obvious price of the roof itself, you must also consider the time and labor required with a replacement service. To earn the highest possible return on this investment, you must factor in three aspects to the cost of your roof replacement service.


Roof Replacement Material

The single greatest expense is the material used. Typically, asphalt is the most affordable roofing material that costs anywhere from $50 to $150 per 100 square feet. Aside from asphalt, other materials used include metal, wood, or concrete tiles that starts from $100 per 100 square feet. At the upper end, materials include ceramic, clay, and slate tiles that may cost anywhere from $300 to $600 per square 100 feet.

Roof Replacement Labor

It may seem as though replacing your roof yourself is the least expensive option. However, hiring a professional contractor will save you energy and time, which has economic value as well. Unless you are extremely competent in roof repairs, you may end up costing yourself more money with a repair and replacement. To get the best deal, seek out multiple quotes and request individual quotes for material and labor.

Roof Replacement Durability

As mentioned previously, there are backend costs to a replacement service. When replacing your roof, you need to consider the longevity of the service. Will your roof last ten years? Twenty? Fifty? The better materials and craftsmanship that you in invest in, the longer you can go without another roof replacement.
