Roofing Costs

Estimate To Roof A House

The average home (under 2000 square feet) with 30 year laminated roofing shingles should cost between $6500 to $9500. This cost depends on the pitch of the roof and if it is a roof tear off.

Also you will need to know how many "squares" your roof is, roofers price all roofs by the square. A square is 10'x10 area of the roof. You can go online and find out how many squares your roof is. There are many online systems that use Google satellite images to measure roofs. Just Google "online roof measurements". Once you are ready to hire a roofing company, use our search tool to find and compare roofers in your area.

  • You can expect to pay $105 - $450 per square for the roofing material. This varies on the material you choose. 30 year roofing material cost less than something like  metal roofing.
  • A roof tear-off will cost at least $100 per layer and per square.
  • You should expect to pay at least $100 per square for labor to install the roofing.
  • If you have any sheeting that needs replaced figure at least $75 per sheet.

I could say it will cost $350 per square (10'x10' area) to remove and install new shingles. But it does not work that way. You need to figure in the type of roof you are installing, metal roofing, presidential roofing or maybe you will go with the 30 year laminate roofing shingles. The estimate will also depend on the pitch of the roof surface and time of the year.

You may be able to get by with just a simple patch, a roofer will be able to tell you the best way to go forward. Don't through good money and your time at something you may not be able to fix.


I have contacted a roofer, what's next?

The roofer will give you a break down of the life left on your roof and give you a couple different options for repairing or doing a complete roof tear off and replacement. Yes it sounds bad, but this is what they do.


What are the best choices for roofing materials?

One of the beat and most affordable roofing materials is the 30 year laminate architectural roofing shingle. followed by the Presidential type shingle, these are a heavy duty high wind rated shingle for roofs with a pitch of 5/12 or greater.

Metal loc-seam roofing, is also a great roofing system. It can have a lifetime warranty on the product and can be in multiple colors. the only bad thing about metal roofing is it can be really loud in a rain storm...

Ceramic tile roofing, is a system that is not really for any home. It is best in a dryer climate and the home needs to be engineered to handle the weight of the roofing material. Ceramic Tile Roofing is very brittle.

Cedar shake roofing, Yes Cedar is a great looking roof, but it needs to be maintained often, like every 3 years at least. Some HOAs will make you replace your roof with cedar shake roofing or the Presidential roofing system. I would go with the Presidential roofing.

Flat roof material, TPO or PVC roofing material is the newest way to roof a flat roof structure. TPO style roofing material has taken the place of torch down roofing. But there is still a need for torch down and hot tar roofing companies.


Roofing Systems you should try to stay away from:

  • 3 Tab Roofing Shingles, a 30 year laminate architectural shingle is about the same price.
  • Re Roof - roofing over the top of an excising layer of roofing.
  • Roll Roofing has it's place but not on a normal house.

Hot Tar on a normal residential roof. Once you start you have to reseal every year.
