What Can Add to the Total Cost of Your Roofing Project?

by | Oct 13, 2021 | Roofing | 0 comments

When getting a new roof or a major repair, it’s essential to obtain estimates from different contractors to get an idea about your project’s cost. You’ll notice that price estimates often vary by company. This is because they consider various factors when pricing the service you need.

A storm damage restoration expert shares things that can add to the overall cost of your roofing project.

The Size of Your Roof

Contractors obtain a roofing square by measuring your roof based on square footage and dividing it by 100. One roofing square is equivalent to 100 square feet. Manufacturers usually sell roofing materials by the square and not by square feet.

The Slope of Your Roof

Another factor that can affect your roof replacement cost is the roof slope. An extremely steep roof is anything beyond 6:12 pitch, which roofers don’t consider walkable and need more staging, labor and safety to do the job correctly. The roof pitch also determines the underlayment your system needs.

Tear-Offs and Shingle Layers

Removing your old roof also involves dump charges to dispose of the refuse material. This cost is usually determined by the material’s weight. The heavier your old roof is, the more time it will take to tear off, and the higher its disposal cost.

The New Roofing Material

The new roofing material you will choose will affect the appearance and protection of your home’s against weather events as well as your project’s cost. Asphalt composition shingles are extremely popular in homes in the U.S. due to its cost-effectiveness. Metal roofing may cost more but can improve your home’s defense against the elements. If you have a flat roof, some of your options include single-ply PVC systems, TPO products, and built-up roofs.
