When to Replace
Replacing your roof is a major home improvement project that will significantly impact the value and energy-efficiency of your home. Roof replacements are more expensive than roof repairs, so many homeowners choose to continue with on-going repairs rather than investing in a new roof. However, opting for a replacement makes financial sense in some situations.
- If your home is 15 year old or older, your roof could be weathered to the point of developing constant leaks.
- If you are selling your home, a deteriorating roof can be a big turn-off for buyers, and the inspector will likely recommend replacement anyway.
- If your roof hasn’t been installed properly in the first place, you could be wasting money on roof repairs, which adds up over the years.
How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Roof?
Roof replacement can be a costly undertaking, no doubt about it. New roof installation is much more complicated than removing old shingles and laying new ones. Expect to pay anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000 or more for a new roof. The exact cost will depend on the following factors:
The type of roofing material
Asphalt shingles are relatively affordable in comparison to high-end slate roofing. And the amount of materials you would need will depend on the size of your home and the square footage of the roof.
The slope of the roof
f you have a steep roof, you may expect to pay slightly more for a replacement than you would with a regular-pitched roof. The reason is that steep roofs make it more difficult for our residential roofing team to do their job.
Enhancements and improvements
As the old roof is removed, now is the best time to make improvements to your current structure. You may choose to add a skylight, better seal your chimney or install brackets for solar panels. Just keep in mind that all of these are added costs.
