How roof size and type affect your cost
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.
The average home in America is between 1,000 and 1,750 square feet. Average roof replacement costs are as follows:
|Asphalt||$6,000 - $12,000|
|Metal||$15,000 - $30,000|
|Cedar Shake||$18,000 - $36,000|
Steeply 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.
