The cost of replacing or repairing your roof can depend on the size of your home. Usually, a quality roofer will charge per square feet or a square-100 sq ft. Replacing asphalt shingles can cost between $3 and $5 per sq. ft., whereas most companies charge for site visits which may vary from company to company.
The state of your roof can affect the cost needed to repair or replace it. Repairs could be less expensive than replacement, but this will depend on what type of damage is done and how much work needs to be done for repairs. One common kind of roof repair is leaking due to worn out shingles; this costs between $150 -$1,100 depending on the materials required and how complicated the job may be in order to fix it adequately.
The following are the factors you should consider when estimating your roof size:
1. The pitch of the roof- how steep is it? Does a flat or shallow slope help reduce snow from piling up on your home in winter and making it slippery to walk across?
2. Cost of materials, including metal roofing and asphalt shingles- some types cost more but last longer so they may be worth considering if you’re planning on staying in this house for several years
3. Waste removal costs – will you have to pay someone else to take away all the old materials that were used during construction or do you have enough space at home with which to store them until they can be reused later one? Do not underestimate these expenses as there’s usually no way around them; also, never forget about disposal fees!
