It goes without saying that your roof is an essential part of your home. It protects your home’s interior from exterior elements while improving your home’s curb appeal.
Keeping your roof in the best shape possible is important to avoid unbelievably expensive roof repairs. However, even with proper care and maintenance, every roof will eventually need to be replaced.
A roof replacement is a big investment that requires a big decision. Planning a roof replacement project involves setting a budget and understanding the factors that influence the cost of your new roof.
The total cost of a roof will be determined by numerous factors. The national average cost for a new roof is $7,500. In Arizona, the typical range is between $8,500 to $15,000.
Getting an idea of what your total costs will be can help you plan ahead. Here are some factors that contribute to the cost of your new roof.
Factors Affecting Roof Cost
Most quotes are based on the size of your home’s roof. And though not all roofing materials are created equal, they are normally priced by square foot. For large roofs, it takes more materials, more preparation and more time to put on the new roofing. The larger the size of your roof, the bigger the costs.
The cost of roofing materials varies on the types and brands. Clearly, if you want a higher quality and more visually appealing roofing material, it will be more expensive.
Roof Pitch or Steepness
The pitch of your roof determines how easy or how difficult it is to put on your new roof. The steeper it is, the more difficult it will be. It will take more time and more safety equipment, thus increasing the cost.
The difficulty of installation is another factor that contributes to the cost of your new roof. As various types are installed in different ways, the roofing you’ve chosen may require a more intensive installation process.
