Roofing Cost Estimate
The average price of a roof in Wisconsin on the median home is between $8,000 and $20,000 dollars. Materials, workmanship, and warranty are the big differentiators in cost and quality. The biggest factors affecting the price of a new roof in Milwaukee are:
- Size of your roof
- Type of roof
- Slope of your roof
- Time of year or season work is performed
How Your Size and Type of Roof Affects Your Costs
The size and type of roof on your home or building are the largest factors affecting cost. Asphalt shingles are a popular choice due to their appearance and lower cost. If you’re looking to upgrade your roofing to metal, it will on average cost 2.5 times more than asphalt. Fancier roofs such as composite or cedar shake can cost up to 3 times more. Most materials are priced by square footage, so larger roofs will cost more regardless of materials.
For the most common roof size between 1000 and 1750 square feet, you will pay:
- $6000 - $12000 for a traditional asphalt shingle roof
- $15,000 - $30,000 for a metal roof
- $18,000 - $36,000 for a cedar shake roof
Steep Sloped Roofing Costs
The slope of your roof and the time of year installation is performed affect the cost of new roofing. When steep slopes require the use of extra safety equipment, this increases the time, and subsequent price, of roofing installation. As an example, an average size open gable roof with steep slopes costs around $1250-2500 more than a flat, walkable roof of similar size.

Typically the best times for replacing your roof are in the spring, fall, or early winter. Summer is considered the busiest time for roofing replacement, with most roofing jobs increasing in price by 5-15%.

We have performed over 12,000 residential roofing and remodeling projects in Wisconsin and it’s incredibly common to have to rework a poorly installed roof in less than 10 years where better workmanship could’ve made the same materials last 30.
Fact: Roofing is not a commodity. If it were then we would not be replacing 5-10 year old roofing projects daily.
