So you’ve decided you do need a roof and now you’re wondering about the roof cost. With any investment, it’s good to know what the budget and price range will look like for such an extensive project. The good news is that when the home is sold in the future you can recoup the cost of the investment up to 60%! Roof replacements can cost a pretty penny, but there are some factors that are incorporated into the cost that can help you understand so you do not experience sticker shock. Some of those factors include: square footage, materials, labor, where the home is located, the layers of the roof, the tear down, environmental conditions, the extent of roof damage, and finally roof design. The square footage, materials, labor, and roof design are all pretty self explanatory. We do charge based on the square footage of the roof so we know how much to charge for the material and if the design of the roof is more of a challenge, we also will be required to take extra safety precautions for our installation crew. Additionally, if your roof has any rotting wood, this also adds to the difficulty and safety of the project.
