A residential roof installation is a complex project and also a big and long term investment, because you will probably do it only once in your lifetime if you make an informed choice and choose to spend money on quality instead of making all sorts of compromises that will prove to be even costlier.
It is important to understand the costs of residential roof installations and consult with Parker roofing professionals to identify your best options.
There are different things to expect in terms of Parker roofing costs.
An asphalt shingle roof (which is the most common type of roof) for a 2,000 sq. ft. single-story house (which is the average house size in America) can cost you from $8,000 to $16,000, depending on the type of materials and other project specific variables. In general, that means about $4.00 to $7.00 per sq. ft. This price includes the materials, the old roof removal operations, professional installation of the new roof, disposal fees and permitting fees.
However, the more complex the roof, the higher the price, and this is only one of the factors that influences the costs of a residential roof installation. The actual estimates will vary according to the type of materials and the roofing system you choose, the location of your house as well as the contractor you hire.
Here are a few pricing estimations according to different roofing materials:
- Wood Shingles: $14,000 to $25,000
- Metal roofing (steel or aluminum): $14,000 to $28,500
- Standing Seam: $23,000 to $30,000
- Concrete Tiles: $25,000 to $45,000
- Slate: $25,000 to $55,000
- Clay Tiles: $25,000 to $50,000
- EPDM membrane: $8,000 to $15,500
- TPO or PVC Membrane: $10,000 to $17,000
Just remember that these represent only approximations, based on national average prices. If you want to estimate as accurately as possible the cost of your residential roof installation, you must answer a few basic questions and then you can dive into details specific to your situation:
- What is the roof’s total square footage?
- Where are you located?
- Does the climate in your area raises specific concerns?
- Do you need to replace the roof on your home? On your garage? On your shed?
- What materials are the most suitable to replace your roof?
- Are you on a budget or ready to make an investment for a lifetime?
- Do you plan a partial or full roof replacement?
- Do you prefer a certain style?
- Do you want to upgrade your roof to an eco-friendly level?
- Are you going to hire a roofing company or are you qualified to do the work on your own?
Additionally, like we mentioned before, there are other specific factors that will affect the costs of your Parker roofing project:
- Permitting costs (they depend on where you live)
- The pitch of your roof (flat roofs are cheaper than pitched roofs)
- Existing roof damages (structural damages or vulnerabilities must be fixed before installing a new roof)
- Removal costs
- The number of stories your home has
- Extras (chimneys, skylights, ridge-vents etc.)
