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!
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.
Use the RoofCrafters pricing tool to calculate a rough estimate of the costs surrounding your roof replacement with merely the press of a few buttons.
The material you choose for your new roof is one of the most exciting parts of your journey. The most popular roofing material choices on the market include standing seam metal, screw-down metal, Spanish tile, and asphalt shingles.
Each one has the ability to add a unique aesthetic flare to your home, but it’s important to note that each of these roofing materials will differ in price depending on your region, and the size of your home.
Check out this pricing calculator to help you decide which material is the best fit for your home and budget requirements.
Consisting of a concealed fastener system that showcases vertical or diamond-shaped legs with flat space in between, a standing seam metal roof is a sleek choice for any home.
A fluted metal roof that’s held together by exposed screws, you’ll be getting your bang for your buck with this classic choice.
You can’t go wrong with this single-piece, barrel-designed, sustainable roofing material that’s made of clay or terracotta.
Made up of a base mat, a layer of asphalt, and topped with ceramic granules, your color and style options are endless. Choose between 3-tab, architectural, and designer.
There are several different roof types, some of which include Mansard, Gable, Hip, Gambrel, and Dormer. However, for the sake of simplicity and convenience, let’s stick with the general simple, standard, and complex roof lines. If you don’t see an option that matches your roof type, don’t panic! Choose the option that resembles your roof the closest, and be aware that prices will vary between the different roof types.
A one-story house with a basic up and over roof with no penetrations and no valleys.
A one-story or split level home that has a few hips or valleys and perhaps a dormer or two.
A one, two, or three-story home that has a steep roof pitch, several hips and valleys, as well as penetrations such as chimneys, skylights, and pipes.
Next, input the dimensions of your home. For this section, you’ll need to find the length and width of your home’s exterior walls; the tool will do the rest. Simply stretch your tape measurer along your walls from one end to the other in both directions. Record your measurements, and place them into the calculator. Voilà!
Total Roof Area:
Wasn’t that fun? In your estimate, you’ll see the material you chose, the type of roof you have, your home footprint, and your total roof area are the factors that will determine the final cost of your roof replacement.
*Please note that this is a rough estimate, and upon having a professional inspection, this number may vary*
