Is your home in need of a new roof? Are you concerned with the price of replacing your current roof? Craven Construction wants you to be informed of the different components that determine the cost of a new roof. These include the size of the roof, your roofing material selection, labor costs, the condition of your current roof, and any additions you may have.

Size Matters

One of the main influences on the cost of a new roof is the size. A large home is going to require a large roof. The larger the square footage of your roof is going to increase the cost of replacing your current roof. If your roof has several planes or high peaks, your roof will have a higher cost.

Different Materials, Different Cost

When replacing your roof, you will have the option of several roofing material options. Each have different characteristics, different uses, and different costs. We recommend assessing your home’s roofing needs to help you determine which material will be best and fits within your budget.

Labor

One cost that most homeowners do not think of when determining the cost of a new roof is labor. Typically an hourly rate is charged, but this may vary, depending on your roofing contractor. Our roofers are trained and certified to complete your project in the most efficient, yet safe time frame.

Current Roof Condition

Once your old shingles are removed, it is important to examine the materials underneath. Often times,  minor repairs to the wood or sheathing is needed prior to installing the new shingles. Upon a professional assessment, you contractor may also determine your roof does not need to be replaced. Your roof may be in need of professional repair services.

Additions

While you are having a new roof installed, now is the time for any additions or changes you would like to see for your roof. This can include additional attic ventilation, new peaks, adding gutters, or new skylights and sun tunnels. There will be additional charges for these items, but it is best to add them while you have a roofing contractor available. Waiting to add these items later, could generate additional costs.

As you can see, a new roof has several components to determining the price. Craven Construction wants to make sure you are fully aware of the cost of a new roof. Our professional roofers are available to assess your roofing needs and provide you with a free estimate for your next roofing project.
