To give a proper roof estimate, a reputable roofing contractor will have to physically visit the property and do some measurement as well as inspect the condition of the roof system.
Below are several factors that are taken into account when estimating the roof replacement cost.
The larger your roof is, the more it will cost you for a new one. Roofs are measured in squares. Larger surface areas require more materials and more labor.
The roof type will not only affect your roofing cost but also your roofing timeline. The steeper the roof, the harder it is to install. Therefore, all else being equal, you can expect any pitched roof to cost more than a flat roof.
If your roof has a pitch over 2/12, it’s considered pitched (and not flat). Roof pitch is defined by rise over run. A roof's pitch is determined by how much it rises for every foot it runs.
The roof material you choose plays the biggest role in your final roofing estimate. Nowadays, most homeowners prefer laminated architectural shingles due to its affordability, durability, and warranty. Even so, the prices still vary depending on the brand and the quality of shingles that you choose.
No two roofing companies are alike. The input of labor depends on the size of a project, and labor plays a key role in the overall roofing estimate. Every contractor has a right to value their own work; nevertheless, You Get What You Pay For.
Removing roof shingles, metal roofing or any other roofing material is not easy task. Roofers have to remove pieces and sections one at a time with a lot of elbow grease and precision to ensure no damage to your gutters or flashing. In addition, how many layers are currently on the roof to be removed affects the final price of your new roof.
With so many factors affecting the roofing cost, it becomes clear that a roof estimate cannot be easily given online.
