Average Cost of Roof Replacement

How Mush Is The Average Cost Of Roof Replacement?

Average Cost of Roof ReplacementThe average cost of roof replacement will vary from one place to another. The cost of materials, the scope of the project or the magnitude of replacement and the labor charges would be the three most important factors. The average cost of roof replacement will not remain the same if the scope of the project gets bigger or gets stunted. It is quite likely that the average cost per square foot of roof replacement for a larger project will be less than that of a smaller project. The eventual total cost will be less in the latter scenario but the average cost per square foot may not be.

Let us understand three important aspects of a roof replacement project to get a fair idea of the average cost of roof replacement. An asphalt roof replacement project would have an average cost per square foot of about $5 to $6. A shake roof would have an average cost per square foot of about $8 to $9. Metal roofs have varying costs depending on the type of metal roof you have. Corrugated steel roof will cost you about $7 to $8 per square foot. Metal shingles will cost you about $9 per square foot. Stone coated metal will cost you about $8 o $10 per square foot. Standing seam metal roofs will cost around $12 per square foot. The average cost per square foot of rubber roof is $7.

Now, before you bear these costs or take them into account, you have to account for the labor charges that would be solely for removing the existing roof, which could be partial or complete. The removal costs are added to the estimate. Not only would the existing roof be removed but there will be trash removal costs as well. Roofing companies will take into account the cost of trucks and the labor that would go in to remove the trash from your site.

The average cost of roof replacement would also depend on the condition of the deck, substrate layers or underlayment. It is quite possible that the deck, underlayment or substrate layers are in perfect condition and a roofer has to do nothing to prep the roof. It is quite possible that they would be damaged and thus the roofer will have to prep them before the roof replacement project can commence.

As you can see, the average cost of roof replacement will depend on many factors unique to your property.
