The cheapest roofing material: asphalt shingles

The cheapest roofing material is asphalt, averaging approximately $6.54 per square foot. However, price is not always an indicator of quality or roof longevity. The choice of both shingle brand and roofing installer significantly influences the overall quality of your roof.

The most expensive roofing material: metal roofing

Despite its higher cost, opting for metal roofing offers a host of advantages, including extended durability, enhanced aesthetic appeal, and a potential increase in property appraisal value. Material choice isn't the sole indicator of roof quality; the brand and installation precision of the metal roofing are key for long-term performance.

How has the cost of roofing changed over time?

Since the early 1980s, the cost of roof materials have increased an average of $10 per square foot due to inflation. The largest increase in roof material costs occurred in 2008-2009 when prices increased by approximately 37.2%

How much does a roof repair cost in Wisconsin

The cost of a roof repair in Wisconsin will depend on the size and type of repair, along with the area of the roof and the material needing to be fixed. The average roof repair in Wisconsin can cost as little as $200 or more than $3,000. The longer roof damage goes without being addressed, the worse the damage will be - causing the repair cost to increase over time.

What goes into quoting a roof repair?
