Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is one of the most desired places to live on the east coast. It’s also one of the wealthiest. “With great wealth comes great responsibility”, once exclaimed Bill Gates. That great responsibility he’s talking about is is being diligent about your roof replacements, people.

 

Okay, maybe that’s not really what he meant. However, the shoe still fits here, so let’s run with it. RoofCrafters has been repairing, replacing, and installing roofs since ‘94, and we’ve seen firsthand how important it is to replace your roof once its lifespan has come to a bitter end.

 

If you’re a resident of Hilton Head Island and you’re interested in a new roof but unsure of the costs associated with a replacement, you’re in the right place. In this article, you’ll learn about the 3 main factors that impact the final cost of your roof installation, and be given examples of seven of the most common roof materials used on homes in 2022, and their costs. Let’s jump right in!

 

 

The 3 Main Factors Considered When Calculating the Cost of Tear-Off and Installation

 

The cost of replacing your roof in Hilton Head Island South Carolina varies depending on many factors. The 3 main factors that are considered to determine your price are:

 

  1. The type of roof material you choose for your new roof
  2. The total square footage of your roof area that needs to be covered
  3. The complexity or difficulty of your roof project itself, such as, how steep is your roof, how high up or how many stories does your home has, and will your local roofing contractor be able to get their equipment close to your home.

 

The most economic and commonly used roof materials installed in Hilton Head are asphalt shingles. There are 4 different types of asphalt shingles to choose from depending on the particular style or curb appeal you prefer, the duration of the warranty for the materials, and of course the cost or budget you have. 

 

The 4 different shingle types are: 

 

  1. 3-tab shingles
