Considering the investment that a new roof installation entails, it’s very important to look at the different things that influence the cost to replace a roof.
There’s a fairly big price range for the different types of roofs available — from asphalt shingles to metal, tile, and slate — and the type of material you choose will be the most important of the cost factors.
Nationwide, consumers spend an average of about $11,0000 to $12,000 to tear-off and replace an asphalt roof. A metal or tile roof installation averaged $15,000 to $17,000, and could be more depending on the materials chosen, while roof repairs for various leak issues, shingle or tile replacement, and minor fascia work cost consumers $700 to $900 on average.
The roof’s size and pitch also play a big factor in the estimate, as does the roof’s accessibility. Make sure you get at least three estimates for a new roof installation before hiring your contractor, and make sure those estimates take all of these factors into consideration so you’re comparing apples to apples and you aren’t surprised by any added expenses in the middle of the job.
