Factors Influencing the Cost of Roof Replacement

August 1, 2018

The choice of material only comprises one part of the calculations for your roofing cost. The final cost will depend upon the size, pitch, type of application, complexity of the project, additional materials and meeting the building codes for your area. The larger your roof is, of course, the more material you will need and the more expensive it will be. Steeper roof installation can also be more expensive for a number of reasons. It’s one of the more difficult installations and require a great deal of safety measures. Roofers also can’t store materials on the roof itself and run higher insurance rates due to the riskiness of the job. Whether your roof is attached via nails, screws, or foam adhesive also has an impact on your price. Your price calculation also needs to include complexity, meaning you need to account for gables, skylights, and vents. Each of these extras can increase the price of your roof. Of course, the best way to figure out the exact price of your roof replacement is always to get the opinion of at least three roofers for their individual quotes.
