The Size of the Roof
The cost of labor to tear off and install the shingles is calculated by the overall size of your roof. Roofer refers to the size of a project in square feet. For example, a home with 2000 square feet of living space under the roof would need approximately 28 squares of roofing. This is calculated by multiplying a pitch factor or the slope of your roof.
We typically determine this one of two ways:
Field measure onsite
Order a satellite report
Roof measurements generated from a satelitte report
Your roofer should know how to use both methods. Because often time heavy tree coverage will not allow a satellite report. Both methods are useful to know to calculate an exact cost and accurate.
The Slope of the Roof
What is the slope of a roof? The slope of your roof is how many inches of rise the roof has for every foot. The greater the number of rises the steeper the roof will be. A roof with a steep slope will cost more because it’s dangerous. Roofers must slow down so they don’t get injured while performing the work. Slower install times will increase the cost of the labor, impacting the cost of a project.
