If you are planning on installing a new roof, you can expect to pay anywhere between $4,600 and $9,400. These prices can fluctuate depending on the material used for the roof. If you have a roof with steep slopes, chimneys, and abstract angles, you can expect to pay significantly more for a roof replacement.
If you are having doubts about whether to fix the problems or change your roof completely, it is best to find a roof contractor to inspect the roof. They can guide you in the right direction and explain what the best method works for your roof.
If your roof has ran its course, it is probably time to replace it. With time, roofs decay and don’t protect your house as they should. If you are experiencing leaking from your roof, it is time to replace it. Your roof may be fairly new, yet wrong installation can lead to damages from storms that can’t be repaired.
Once you have decided to go on with your roof replacement, the next step is deciding on the material. Most people go with asphalt because it is the cheapest option and easiest to install. Asphalt roofs will last 20-25 years and will require maintenance. Metal is slowly becoming more popular due to its durability. Although it is more expensive than asphalt, it is the longest- lasting material for roofs. Tiles are more traditional and is more expensive than asphalt and metal. Tile roofs will last up to 40-50 years. Lastly, slate, it is the most expensive material. Slate is fire resistant and will last over 50 years.
