It happens to every single homeowner. Mother Nature and Father Time work their magic through wind, rain, sun, and snow, and you eventually need a new roof. If roof repairs are no longer feasible, here’s what you need to know to determine how much a new roof will cost.
What Factors Affect How Much a New Roof Will Cost?
There are two primary determining factors to consider when budgeting for a roof replacement.
The first is obvious; it’s the size of your roof. The budget for a 3,000 square foot ranch style home will be considerably higher than that of a 1500 square foot two-story. More square footage to cover means more materials and more labor costs. As a homeowner, you don’t have any control over this aspect, but read on, as you do have some say in the second factor influencing cost.
The type of material you choose to replace your roof will affect your total cost. Homeowners today can opt for a variety of materials ranging from asphalt shingles to metal roofs and terra cotta or slate tiles. Each comes in at a different price point, but don’t feel that you’ll be restricted by design if you choose a less costly option. Today’s asphalt shingles feature beautiful architectural designs that will enhance your home.
Maryland Roofing Cost Estimates
Given variable factors such as size and materials, a typical townhouse roof replacement can vary from $4,000 to $12,000.
A rough estimate for a single family home roof replacement typically ranges from $5,000 to $25,000+.
Want to do a little more research on your own? According to the Remodeling Cost-vs-Value report of 2018, the average cost for a typical 30 square roof in Baltimore, MD is $20,636. Typically, single family homes are around 30 square. If you’d like to do the math yourself, a roofing square is a 100 square foot area of roof surface, or 10 feet by 10 feet.
Finding a Quality Roofer is Job One
These are simply guidelines, and the best way to determine your cost is to contact a quality roofing professional for a free estimate. Choose a contractor that is part of your local community, and remember to check references and applicable licenses before you sign a contract. Ask about warranties and find out what's the best choice for you in particular. With the right contractor and proper materials, you’ll soon be under cover and ready for whatever Mother Nature has in mind.
