The Various Factors Affecting Roof Replacement Costs

Roof replacements can be an extremely important investment for your home. Roofing can be more than just a static update and it can often add value as well as increase the functionality of your home. If you’ve done your research, you may be wondering why there are differing estimates between contractors for installing the same roofing materials you are looking for. Here are some of the main factors that affect the overall cost of your roof replacement!

The Size of Your Roof

Most roofing projects are measured in roofing squares and a roofing square is equal to approximately 100 ft.². The larger your roof is, the more expensive that a project will be. Because your roof is being quoted in the squares it is likely that a contractor is budgeting for more labor and material based off of the square-foot price.

Kitchen Slope

If a roof is extra steep this can often be dangerous for roofers to work on. Staging and labor often needs to be done on the ground in order to complete the project safely with a steep slope. A roofing company will charge you a bit more based on the slope on your roof and how difficult it is to perform work on it.

The Roofing Material

Your chosen roofing material will also play a factor in the cost. Reputable roofing contractors often have excellent contacts in the industry and they can get access to some of the best materials to match your aesthetic and budget requirements.


Roofing permits may be required in order to complete your job and obtaining a permit is something that any contractor needs to consider. This important piece of paperwork ensures that your roof can be up to all safety standards and codes.
