Average Roof Replacement Cost Per SquareThere is a thumb rule to determine the average roof replacement cost per square. Take the cost of material per square, factor in the labor charges per square and then add about 20% to 30% of the cost of materials for accessories, components and tools that would be needed to get the job done. Voila, you would have the average roof replacement cost per square.

But if you have ever tried out that thumb rule, you would know that the figures can be at best educative. You will never be able to take a generic approach to determine the average roof replacement cost per square. You need to get into the specifics. Surely, the cost of installing asphalt shingles is not even remotely what installing built up roof would cost. Cost of installing metal shingles will not be the same as installing EPDM, TPO or PVC. Clay tiles will have a different installation method from cedar shakes and modified bitumen will have a different cost as well.

When you consider all these possibilities, you would realize that you can only consider an average roof replacement cost per square when you know exactly what you want.

Normally, you are looking at anywhere between $500 and $900 as your roof replacement cost per square. But that would be a wrong range if you consider asphalt or metal. For asphalt, the average roof replacement cost per square would be around $250 or $300. There would be cheaper quotes and more expensive quotes but that would be pretty much the midway. For metal roofs, you are looking at an average spending of around $1000 per square. The larger the roof, the less you would pay per square. But that is the median expense.

It should be borne in mind that the material being used and the labor charges or workmanship are not the only two factors that influence the average roof replacement cost per square. The condition of the existing roof, the condition of the deck and substrate layers, the need for replacing the existing roof and then prepping the deck or underlayment will have a bearing. Then you have the necessity of coatings and insulation. The choice of coatings will have a serious bearing on the average roof replacement cost per square. You may choose to opt for insulation straightaway or you may delay it. That too will affect the cost.
