A roof replacement project is one of the costliest elements of home ownership. It’s imperative that homeowners have a clear understanding on the total cost of the roof replacement before they begin. If you’re considering a roof replacement in 2018, we’re highlighting the process for considering project cost in this latest post.
The Factors that Determine Cost
To begin assessing the potential cost of a roof replacement, the project consultant will assess the roof and the type of work involved. In doing so, the following factors will be reviewed:
- Type of shingles installed
The type of shingles being installed plays a significant role in the total cost of the project. Are the shingles designed to be impact resistant? Are they specially designed for the home? These are questions to be considered within the cost.
- Plywood replacement
Oftentimes plywood within the home structure will have to be replaced as part of the roofing project. The level of damage under the shingles and the style of plywood used are unique elements to take into consideration when evaluating roof replacement options.
- Square footage
Of course, the size of the roof itself is also a leading consideration. How much time will it take to cover the roof with tiles? How many shingles will be required to complete the roofing job? These are questions the team will consider when providing a quote for roof replacement. Another consideration is the number of nails used to nail down each shingle. Only using one or two nails per shingle means the roof might have to be replaced in a shorter timeframe.
