How Much Will A New Roof Cost You

By Cameron Rachev on September 16, 2011

The roof is the only layer that isolates your house from the elements, but it is also something that can be a sign of style and good design. American roofs are traditionally made from wood shakes. However, this material is vulnerable to things such as fire or mold and therefore a roof made of wood shakes will need to be replaced every once in a while. However, such roofs are preferred since they are relatively cheap and very easy to install. Another commonly used material is the asphalt shingles. Regardless of this, a large number of people choose to make their roofs from metal or tile since such roofs will last a lot longer and are a lot more stylish.

The typical costs of roofs:

1. If you choose to get materials and create the roof yourself and the material you choose is asphalt shingle and in case you are the owner of a one-story ranch-style house that has a roof which is slopping gently and is about 1, 700-2, 100 square feet big then the amount of money you will need to replace your old roof would vary between $680 and $3700 depending on what quality of material you choose to use. If you choose to use the help of professionals to remove the old asphalt shingles and put the new ones in place then you will need to spend another $1700 to $8400 for this process. The price will depend on the location of the house and the materials used.

2. If you choose to make the roof for your house from wood shingles or shakes then you will need to maintain it properly in order to stay beautiful. Moreover, these materials are liable to fire and are not very long-lasting. The installation of the wood shingles or shakes on a house that has one story and its roof size is 1, 700-2, 100 square feet will cost you about $6, 800 -$20, 000 or even more. Substituting the roof of the house with a roof from a more durable material which is of high quality and is resistant to fire such as recycled rubber or molded plastic that look like wood would cost you $12, 600 -$18, 900 or even more.

3. If you choose a tile roof for your house then you will have a roof which is very durable, distinctive, resistant against fire and not affected by any insects or rotting. If the tile roof is made of concrete then it might cost you around $7, 650 -$21, 000 for a very basic roof on house which is ranch-style. If you want to use ceramic clay tiles for your roof then you will have to pay $11, 900 -$2, 100 for standard shapes and standard colors while the customized shapes and colors will cost you $17, 000 -$60, 000 and in case of a more complex installation you might need to pay even more.

Making a decision about the roof of your house is very important since it is a long term investment and should be handled carefully.
