Let's call out the elephant in the room: Pricing!

How Much Does A New Roof Cost with Daniel Humphries

Okay, Let’s Cut To the Chase. How Much Will I Really Be Paying?

Pricing talk in the roofing industry is oftentimes seen as taboo, but it doesn’t have to be. Roofing projects are expensive, you know this. So, wouldn’t you rather know how much you’ll be paying up front instead of tip-toeing around the subject?

Quality roofing projects are expensive. By knowing how much you’ll be paying out of pocket before the project begins, you can better understand what you can afford, and if you need financing or other assistance. Transparency is an all-around win!

What Influences the Cost of My Roofing Project?

Your roof is unique, and the total cost is going to depend on a lot of different factors. Below are the 3 main factors that impact the cost of your new roof.
