Replacing your old, dysfunctional roofing system is more than updating your home’s aesthetics. This major home improvement is an investment that boosts your home’s value and functionality. With a new roof, your home is better protected against external elements. However, you might be wondering to yourself, “How much will this project cost me?”
Apparently, the cost of roof replacement may vary based on several factors. Read on as ReNew Home Designs, one of the leading roofing contractors in the area, explains each of them here.
1. The Roof’s Size and Dimensions
Size is one of the more obvious factors. Simply put, the larger the roof area that needs to be replaced, the higher the cost the project will be. Also, most roofing materials are sold by roofing square and not by the square foot. A roofing square is equal to 100 square feet, and it is used to determine the size of the roof being replaced.
2. Roof Slope
Residential roofing systems are either low-sloped or steep-sloped. The steeper the roof, the more costly the project will be. Since it will be hard for the roofers to walk on it, the roof replacement may require the use of scaffolding or safety equipment for them to do the job safely.
3. Roof Access
Your home might be situated in a way that makes it difficult for roofers to gain access to your roof or bring materials closer to your property. You can expect an uptick on your roof replacement costs if your home is far from the road or is surrounded by trees.
