New Roof Prices
Replacing your roof can be a costly endeavor. Though, thankfully, it only has to be done every couple of decades or more. To make sure you’ve got enough of a budget saved up, we’ve created a guide to help you determine exactly how much that new roof is going to cost. Read on to start calculating and planning (contact us to get started!).
Overall, you can plan to spend at least $6,000 for a full roof replacement. Of course, that is an average cost so if you intend to use higher quality materials, have extensive damage to your roof structures, or have a larger home you will pay more. It’s always good to get a couple estimates and to compare prices between a few different kinds of materials before making your choice.
These are the most commonly used materials for roofs in the U.S. They are lightweight, relatively durable, and easy to install. For the DIY crowd, this tends to be their material of choice since it’s a pretty simple install. You’ll pay roughly $1,700 to nearly $9,000 for a new asphalt roof, depending on square feet and roof style.
Just about everyone loves the look of a wood shingled roof. It’s got that classic cottage look that’s irresistible. Unfortunately, it doesn’t tend to be as durable as other materials and requires a lot of maintenance. You can expect to pay around $6,800 to $20,000 or more for a wood shake roof.
Metals roofs are quite versatile in the options that are available today. You can choose various types of metals and either sheets of metal or metal tiles. These roofs are very durable, lightweight, and can be quite attractive if they are installed correctly. For a steel roof, you can expect to pay $8,000 to $25,000. For an aluminum roof, you’ll pay $10,000 to $27,000. And for an extra great look, you can install a copper roof for $18,000 to $42,000.
Many people prefer slate roofs for their extra durability and their natural, quality look. They tend to last many decades, which makes them a good investment. These roofs can run anywhere from $17,000 to over $100,000, depending on how large your home is and which types of tiles you select. You can also purchase a synthetic version of slate that is drastically less expensive.
A smart, long-lasting choice, ceramic tile is easy to replace one tile at a time. It’s not great for houses that don’t have very sturdy support structures, however. They will cost $7,000 to $21,000 or more.
