If your neighbor just got a new roof and willingly told you what he paid, you might think your roof quote would be the same. The reality is that the average cost of a new roof can vary widely from one home to the next because there are many different factors involved. Even two homes next to one another built at the same time could pay a different amount for a new roof. Here are some of the factors that affect the average cost of a new roof:
- Ease of access- The location of your home can sometimes affect the cost of a new roof. For example, a remote location that is difficult to get to can increase your quote. Being able to get a vehicle close to the roof makes the project go smoothly and can lower the cost.
- Type of roof- Roofing prices vary widely. Shingle roofing continues to be the most popular due to its cost-effectiveness.
- Materials chosen- There are various styles of shingles with different price points.
- Existing roof to be removed- More layers can mean more labor and disposal fees to remove the existing shingles. Putting on yet another layer may be inadvisable due to weight and higher potential for the roofing to prematurely fail.
- Size and pitch of roof- The amount of materials and labor will be more for a larger home than a smaller one. In addition, your quote could be higher if there is a high-risk situation involved.
