Your roof has a big job to do. Having a roof that’s in good condition is essential. At some point everyone needs roofing services for a repair or a new roof. Because it’s not something people do regularly or have a good frame of reference for, a new roof or repair estimate can come with sticker shock. We want to help you understand why we, and other roofing companies, charge what we do for our roofing services.
The Basics of Roofing Costs
Whether you need a roof repair or a new roof for your home, there are several costs we factor into every quote. These are part of doing business, or our overhead.
- Liability insurance
- Workman’s compensation insurance
- Vehicle and equipment insurance
- Ongoing training
- Tools and miscellaneous supplies
- Travel to and from the jobsite
Specifics of a Roof Repair
Each roof repair is different. Sometimes we replace shingles, other repairs only require sealing flashing to stop the leak. Because each repair is different, we factor in the time it will take the repair, the supplies and how many people need to come to the job site in addition to the basic elements above.
Roofing Costs for a Roof Replacement
Most people understand that the biggest cost are the shingles, however, a roof replacement has many more elements. The manhours involved vary depending on the size of the roof. We also must also pay waste disposal fees for the shingles. Add in the other roofing elements other than new shingles like new ventilation, underlayment, flashing and ice and water shield and why a roof replacement “costs so much” should become more clear.
