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.
Type of roofing material
Size of your roof
Complexity of your 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.
Choose Your Roofing Material
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.
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.
Select Your Roof Type
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.
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!
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.
