Looking to get an idea of what your next roof replacement will cost in Jacksonville?

Are you like me? Do you get frustrated when you are researching products and services here online and find that no one who actually does the roofing work has their prices listed on their websites?

From what I can see no one from the Jacksonville area wants to discuss it either. 

Even though EVERYONE is researching and shopping and buying all kinds of products and services right here online. 

I guess they want you to contact them so they can send a sales rep out to discuss it face-to-face.

But, honestly, we don’t want to waste that much of your if you're just looking to get a budget right now.

Here at RoofCrafters of Jacksonville, Florida, we have been doing residential and commercial roofing for almost 30 years. We started our family-run business in the early 1990s. Over the years we have grown and evolved and one of the things we are happy to do is share our experience estimating the cost of roof replacements here online.

So, In this article, I am going to cover the 3 main factors used to determine the roof replacement cost. I'll also show examples of the most popular roofing materials used on homes and businesses in Jacksonville. 

You'll also learn the average cost of the top 7 roof materials used. So that by the end of this article, you will know the fairest answer to,  “What is the average cost for my roof replacement in Jacksonville, Florida ?” 

The 3 Main Factors Considered When Calculating the Cost of a Roof Replacement in Jacksonville, Florida

 

The cost of replacing your roof in Jacksonville varies depending on several factors. The 3 main factors that are used in determining the price are:

  • The type of roof material you select to put on your home in Jacksonville.
  • The total square footage of your roof or the total area that needs to be replaced. 
  • The overall complexity or difficulty of your roof project, such as the steepness of your roof, or how high up is the roof.

The most economical and popular roof materials installed in Jacksonville are asphalt shingles. There are 4 different asphalt shingle types to choose from depending on the particular style or curb appeal you want, the warranty or lifespan of the shingle, and the cost or budget you have set aside for your roof replacement project. 

Here are the 4 different shingle types you have to choose from: 

  • 3-Tab shingles
  • Architectural Shingles
  • Upgraded Architectural Shingles
  • Designer Shingles

It would be impossible for me to give you an exact price without knowing all the factors that determine the final cost. So, I will provide you with the average cost of a typical home in Jacksonville, Florida with one of the most popular roof shingles.

architectural shingle roof with valleysMost homeowners in Jacksonville can expect the cost of their roof to average between $11,200 to $17,100. This price is based on a typical 3 to 4-bedroom home, with 2 to 3 baths and a standard 2-car garage. 

Of the 4 asphalt shingles types, the architectural asphalt shingles shown above are by far the most popular roofing shingles installed on residential homes in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Your price may be slightly less, but it could be a little higher, typically it'll fall somewhere in between depending on the different factors that go into calculating the exact cost of your roof. To get the exact cost for your roof, you would need to have a local roofing company in Jacksonville come out to your home and take exact measurements.

The Average Cost in Jacksonville, Florida for a Roof Replacement with a 3-Tab Shingle.

 

3-Tab asphalt shingles are the cheapest shingles on the market, these are often referred to as builder-grade shingles. 3-tab shingles are often installed on new construction homes and sometimes smaller investment properties. 3-tabs is good if you have an extremely tight budget and you are ok with less wind protection for your home.

Single story home with 3 tab shinglesFor a 3-tab shingle roof on a home in Jacksonville with 2 straight sides and no chimneys or skylights, the average cost is $7,300.

two story home with 3 tab shinglesFor a 3-tab shingle roof on a home with 2 stories that are a little more complex, the average cost is $8,950.

3 tab roof with complex valleysFor a 3-tab shingle roof on a home that is even more complex, with several valleys and gables, the average cost is $10,600.

The Average Cost for a Roof Replacement in Jacksonville with an Architectural Shingle

 

Architectural asphalt shingles are heavier than the 3-tab shingles and provide you with a much better wind rating than the lighter 3-tab shingles. 

Architectural shingles are sometimes referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles because during the production of the shingle, the manufacturer laminates shingle parts together. This laminated part creates depth or provides dimension. Fun fact, this shingle was first designed to look like real wood shake shingles. So, in my opinion, the brown tones look most natural on a roof.

Again, these are the most popular asphalt shingles used on homes for a new roof replacement in the Jacksonville, Florida area.

The Average Cost for Installing an Upgraded Architectural Shingle In Jacksonville, FL.

 

Upgraded architectural asphalt shingles will provide you with the same economic ease as the 3-tab or regular architectural shingles. 

The major difference is the curb appeal, side by side with its little brother the regular architectural shingle, there is no comparison. The upgraded shingle is much heavier in weight. The extra weight makes it a thicker shingle that will give your roof more definition. This extra definition creates pop and added curb appeal. It'll also increase your resale value in the Jacksonville market.
