When getting a new roof, one of the first things you need to do is determine how much it would cost. One thing that can help is to get multiple quotes from different residential roofing companies. However, after getting estimates, you may notice that there may be slight to significant differences in the prices.
Here are factors that play a major role in how much your roof replacement project would cost.
A larger roofing system would cost more to replace than a smaller one. However, if you have a more expansive roof, your contractor may give you a discount on the total square foot price.
Roof Pitch or Slope
It can cost more to replace steeper roofs because they are more challenging to access. Your roofing company may need to use more staging and safety equipment if you have a steep system. It will also take them more time to replace, which can increase labor costs.
Is your home surrounded by trees or has obstructions that can make it difficult for installers to access your roof? If so, it can have an impact on the cost of your project. This is because it would take them more effort to walk on your roof and load materials.
Another factor that makes a significant impact on the cost of your project is the materials. Make sure to choose a roofing material that is durable and long lasting. Moreover, roofing options come with their own sets of benefits. For instance, asphalt shingles come in a wide selection of options and are cost-effective. Meanwhile, metal roofs are known for their energy efficiency and can last for up to 50 years when maintained properly.
