What is the cost for my shingle roof in Augusta, GA in 2022?

The exact cost of replacing your roof will vary depending on several factors.

3 main factors roofers use when calculating the cost of a shingle roof in Augusta.  

The first factor is the type of roof material you choose.

The second factor is the total square footage of the roof area that needs to be covered.

The third factor is the complexity of your roof project, how steep is your roof and will your local contractor in Augusta, GA be able to get their equipment close to your home.

The most economic and common roof materials used in the CSRA area are asphalt shingles. There are 4 different shingle types for you to choose from depending on the particular style you prefer, the duration of the warranty, and of course the cost or budget you have set aside. 

 The 4 shingle types are:

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 Augusta with one of the most popular shingles used in 2022.

One of the first steps in the roof replacement process is deciding which of the 4 different asphalt shingles is right for you. So understanding the average cost of each of the asphalt shingle roofs available in Augusta is the first step. 

The Average Cost for a 3-tab shingle in Augusta, GA

3-Tab asphalt shingles are the most economical shingles on the market, these shingles are often referred to as builder-grade shingles.

The 3-Tab shingles are typically installed on new construction homes and investment properties. Good choice, if you have an extremely tight budget. Not the best choice if you are looking for the best wind protection.

Aesthetics: They provide a slate shingle look

Lifespan: Typically lasts 12-15 years 

Protection: Being the lightest asphalt shingle they provide the least wind protection, during a major wind event the 3-tabs shingles are at a greater risk to blow off the roof.

The average cost to replace your roof in Augusta, Ga with an architectural shingle

Architectural asphalt shingles also known as dimensional shingles are heavier than the 3-tab shingles and will provide you a much better wind rating than the much 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 designed to look like real wood shingles. 

So, in my opinion,  the darker colors, especially the brown colors,  look more natural, because they resemble a real wood shake shingle roof more than the gray colors or lighter gray colors do. Hey, maybe it's because I know they were designed to look like wood shingles and wood shingles are brown…right?

Architectural shingles are also the most common of the asphalt shingles used today.

Aesthetics: These shingles provide a dimension that will provide more curb appeal

Lifespan: Most architectural roofs last 17 to 22 years with proper roof ventilation. Check out Bob Villa's how long shingle roofs last here.

Protection: With the correct installation methods they can provide wind coverage up to  130 mph depending on which manufacturer you go with.

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

The major difference is the curb appeal, side by side with its little brother the regular architectural shingle there is no comparison, this shingle is much heavier in weight which makes it a thicker shingle giving your roof much more definition, creating pop and beautiful curb appeal.

Aesthetics: The thickness of these shingles creates a very noticeable difference that provides an extra pop from the street.

Lifespan: Created with more asphalt in the shingle, these shingles typically last 25 to 30 years.
