• There are many variables to the cost of your new roof, but to get a ballpark figure of what you can expect you need to know 2 things.

    • What is the square footage of your attic?  If you live in a ranch or one story house, just use the square footage of your house.  Don’t forget about the garage. If you live in a colonial or two story house, use the square footage of your upstairs.  Again, Don’t forget about the garage.
    • Can someone walk on your roof fairly easily, or is it too steep to walk on safely?

    The estimate you are about to get is for tearing off one (1) layer of old roofing materials and replacing it with all new, high quality materials including flashings, underlayments, and shingles.  Please note that this estimate is for budgeting purposes only, and tends to be a little high.  Your actual cost will vary depending on many factors including actual roof pitch, number of layers of existing shingles, required attic exhaust vents, and various flashing needs (including waterproof  leak protection, commonly referred to as ice & water shield).  Surprisingly many roofing quotes you get are only for replacing the shingles.  They re-use the drip edge and other flashings, they re-use the exhaust vents, and sometimes they even re-use the tar paper.
