This summer we plan on getting a new roof for our home. We plan on getting a new roof put on our home because our roof now is severely damaged. The roof was severely damaged due to a hail storm. We have been talking with multiple roofing contractors to determine the pricing of our new roof. If you are looking to get a new roof put on your home then this article should help you determine how much it will cost. Many people want to know how much a new roof will be, and the truth is it varies from house to house. If you want to get an idea of how much your roof will be read the information below.
The Size of Your Roof
One thing that will significantly change the price of your roofing job will be the size of your roof. If you own a small home then your calculator for roofing price will most likely be around $1-$2000. If you have a larger home then your project can cost thousands of dollars depending on the square footage. I have seen homes that have very large roofs and it costs them around $10,000 to get their whole roof replaced. These houses were mansions so you may not have to pay that much money to get your roof replaced.
The Cost of Removal
If you plan on having the contractors remove your old shingles this will also increase the price of having a new roof on your home. You can try to remove the shingles your self to save money but it may not be worth it if you don’t know safety practices. The last thing you want to do is fall off a roof. It is best just to have a professional remove your old shingles and deal with extra cost. This way your life would not be in danger.
The type of roofing materials that you will choose while also significantly vary your price. Obviously, if you go with more expensive shingles your total cost will be more. You can choose to get cheaper shingles that will last just as long but they would not be as attractive. I decided to go with a mid-price shingle because they were both attractive and they will last a good amount of time.
The Style of Your Roof
Another thing that will significantly vary the price of your roofing quote will be the style of your roof. If you have a roof that is very steep, then your pricing will most likely be higher. Roofs with a lot of peaks will also raise the price of your quote.
These are just a few things that will determine the total cost of your roof. If you want to save some money be sure to use cheaper shingles. You can also attempt at removing the old shingles yourself. I do want to advise you though that some companies may not work with you if you try to remove your old shingles yourself.
